No, but I also can't think of any reasonable reason you would use this to cut a 2x4....

I need something to help me cut and remove damaged 2x sill plate and rim joist. Recip saw is ok but needs a hole drilled and can be unwieldy. Circular saw is too big. I was hoping this may work so I'm glad someone asked.

maybe a oscillating tool? I assume you are only removing small pieces of the sill plate.
I don't see how this tool would be helpful to get in those tight spots.

Are you replacing the whole rim joist?

Osc tool is kind of the perfect size and comfortable to use in tight spaces but mine (slickdeal purchase, naturally) doesn't have the power to get through framing nails and 2x lumber.

Yeah bought a house and found at least 30' of the sill and rim joist was badly eaten by termites. (Hidden by sellers). About 15 floor joists too. Have the house jacked up, new floor joists sistered in and about 25' of sill and rim joist replaced. On the home stretch, I hope.

Osc tool highly depends on the blade. My HF special cheapest cuts through the nails fine with a proper blade that costs as much as the tool.
But yes, that is for small scale odd projects, not the whole house rework with 100's of cuts. If you can't get real tool there - it's faster to demolish and restore.

The tool above would not help you either. It's just a mini circular saw.

If you hit a screw with this, it'll kick back pretty fast. Gets dangerous depending on how close you are to the saw because of the way the guard works.
