The Jigsaw is a portable power saw primarily used to cut curves in timber components.
The Jigsaw holds a reciprocating blade which protrudes past its small base allowing for curves to be cut freehand in timber with a depth up to around 35mm.
Portability: If your work piece is too large to move or hold at a bandsaw, the portability of the jigsaw will allow for curves to be cut at your workstation or in hard to reach places.
Interior Cuts: Creating a negative space within a piece can be achieved more easily with the Jigsaw by inserting its blade into a predrilled hole. This allows for the cut to begin free from the outside edge. Achieving an interior cut too hard to make with most machines.
Timber: Dried Timber Species
Acrylics: Various thicknesses depending on the blade (consult workshop staff)
Metals: Ferrous and non-ferrous materials can be cut with the appropriate blade (consult workshop staff)
No Metals or Acrylics can be used with this Power Tool.
