Probably old hat to everybody here, but I recently discovered the scraper
blade for a reciprocating saw.
You put the blade in just like a saw blade and the Sawsall turns into a
power scraper. In my case, it was just the thing for removing stick-on tile
that had a VERY aggressive glue.

The only downside is the occasional kick-back.
Blades are available at the box stores for less than ten bucks.

blade to save three bucks, I did it to save a 22-mile round trip to the HF
store in order to finish a twenty-minute job.
'Course saving three bucks WAS a plus...
Bad planning on your part. You should have bought a house closer to HF.
All kidding aside, until I read your post I didn't know there were scraper
blades for Sawzalls. A quick Google also produced grout removal blades for
