Adam Savage’s Favorite Tools: Reciprocating Air Saw!

Adam shares an essential tool he learned about while working at ILM’s modelshop: the trusty reciprocating air saw. It’s perfect for making fast work of cutting urethane parts for costume armor or prop building, with precise control that you get from a hand tool. And it’s one of the relatively safer air-powered tools to get started with in a small workshop. Adam has a range of them in his shop, and they’re all equally useful!
