Iv been told to use a sawzall but was wondering if something else was available which would cut tight with the wall and not deep enough to hit the joists.

Harbor Freight tools has a Crain toe kick saw knock off.

Do a internet search for "toe kick saw"

Toe kicks can be dangerous to use but it is the tool for the job. Be careful.

I had no idea that toe kick saw existed. Nice. Still looks like it cuts maybe 1/2 from the wall.. Which wouldn't be seen after drywall.

Thanks!

Would a roto zip with right angle attachment also do the trick? I dont have either tool but leaning toward the rotozip since it's a multi purpose tool.

Roto Zip is not all that effective at wood.

Adequate for a small job, a real PITA for anything larger.

You might be able to rent a jamb saw.

The Crain toe kick saw will cut flush to a vertical surface, if that is what you want. Yes, toe kick saws can be dangerous, so be careful.

The toe kick saw is good for one thing. How about the Fein 250Q MultiMaster which could be used for more projects?

Here is a link that might be useful: Fein 250Q MultiMaster
