When it’s time to get your father a gift, it’s pointless asking him what he would want since he will probably tell you he does not need anything. Nonetheless, you are not going to let father’s day, Christmas or his birthday pass by without recognizing him and his efforts at raising you. If your dad is a DIY enthusiast he will definitely love a new, cool tool which he will add to his collection. To make your shopping easier we have listed down a couple of gifts for dads that will certainly suit his tastes.
Jigsaw or Reciprocating Saw
If you are in the market searching for a new power tool to gift your dad you might have come across the reciprocating saw and the jigsaw. When choosing between a jigsaw vs reciprocating saw you should remember that their main difference can be simply traced back to their creation and destructive capabilities. The jigsaw has fine blades that are used for refinement and creation. On the other hand, the reciprocating saw is designed to destroy and rip things apart. Also, the jigsaw is lighter compared to the reciprocating saw, this maximizes the amount of creativity you can achieve while using it since you are able to move more freely. Alternatively, the reciprocating saw is considerably heavier, rougher and much longer. This makes it ideal for destroying rough and heavy materials. Your dad will definitely appreciate if you got him one of these.
