  • Publication number: 20070277656
    Abstract: A blade for a cutting tool. The cutting tool can be supportable on a spindle of a power tool. The blade can include a blade body removably supportable on the cutting tool and being moveable with the cutting tool relative to the power tool for cutting a workpiece. The blade can further include a first cutting edge extending outwardly from the blade body and a second cutting edge extending outwardly from the blade body. When the blade is supported in the cutting tool, the first cutting edge can extend radially across an end of the cutting tool and the second cutting edge can be positioned adjacent an outer circumference of the cutting tool.

  • Publication number: 20070280798
    Abstract: A cutting tool for a power tool. The cutting tool can include a tool body having a first end and a second end and an axis extending therebetween. The second end of the tool body can be engageable with the power tool. A feed screw can be supported in the tool body and can extend outwardly beyond the first end to engage a workpiece. A cutting blade can be removably supported in the tool body for engaging the workpiece.

  • Publication number: 20070074407
    Abstract: The invention relates to a reciprocating saw that includes a reciprocatable spindle for supporting a saw blade for reciprocating sawing movement. A body houses a motor and a drive mechanism driven by the motor. The drive mechanism selectively drives the spindle and the body supports the spindle. A grip extends outwardly from the body adjacent a center of gravity of the saw so as to allow an operator to operate the reciprocating saw with a first hand and support a workpiece being cut with a second hand.

  • Publication number: 20060119318
    Abstract: A battery pack for powering a cordless power tool. The battery pack includes at least one battery cell operable to supply a discharge current, a switch operable to control the discharge current and a protection device to protect the switch. The protection device is positioned such that the device absorbs a current traveling in a direction opposite to that of the discharge current supplied from the battery cell.

  • Publication number: 20050016001
    Abstract: A drive mechanism for a power tool, a power tool and a reciprocating saw. The power tool includes a housing, a motor supported by the housing and including a drive shaft, an output member supported by the housing and adapted to support a tool element, and a drive mechanism. The drive mechanism includes a drive assembly driven by the drive shaft for rotation about an axis, the drive assembly including a gear, a hub selectively driven by the gear for rotation about the axis, and structure positioned between the gear and the hub, the structure selectively transmitting drive force between the gear and the hub and selectively allows relative movement between the gear and the hub. The drive mechanism may also include a drive arm drivingly connected between the drive assembly and the output member of a tool, and the drive arm may be configured to absorb an impact.
