In this Reciprocating Saw 101 video, This Old House contributor Mark Clement demonstrates how to demolish a wall. If you have open or easy access to a wall, cut with the blade right-side up. If you have reduced access, flip the blade around for a lower angle of attack. Make plunge cuts to remove drywall, then cut the fasteners to remove the studs.
Learn how to:
• Properly cut through and take down drywall
• Choose the optimal angle of attack
• Utilize the plunge-cut method
• Remove drywall
• Cut through fasteners
• Avoid cutting errors
