Make a handheld saw.
It can be used for light sawing, cutting packing tape on boxes or opening envelopes.

Step 1: Create Handle

- duct tape
- reciprocating saw blade

Create a handle using the duct tape. Wrap it around the reciprocating saw blade.

Cover about half the blade and be sure to wrap it around several times. This will create a cushion against the teeth of the saw blade when it is gripped.
<p>Is your next spoof going to be how to make tape for a saw blade handle? ☺</p>
No, tape is readily available at Home Depot, so that won't be necessary. ☺
<p>Saws are readily available at Home Depot, so this DIY is irrelevant.</p><p>But seriously, if you are in a bind, this works!</p>
<p>I did use a variation on this trick though; separating a pair of kitchen wall cabinets from the frame anchor screw that was buried beyond retrieval and was holding them fast. Only difference was I used a pair of locking Vise Grips as the handle, it was indeed a lifesaver that day.</p>
Great idea Hank! Sometimes one has to improvise to get the job done.
<p>It works quite well - I used it recently to unbox a few dozen computers at work.</p>
Some of the best Instructables are the simplest ones. ☺
