An electric jigsaw tool is ideally suited to tougher cutting jobs or regular periods of long usage where there is easy access to power.
Electric jigsaws make curve cuts in a range of materials with a small, thin, reciprocating blade, and it is important to match the blade type to the material being cut. Most of these tools feature pendulum action, which moves the blade back and forth as well as up and down. This allows the machine to cut faster, reduces jamming, and extends the blade life.
An electric jigsaw is perfect for cutting curves such as stenciled designs and custom shapes. It can cut a variety of materials including wood, metal, laminates, tiles and plastics. This means that it can be used more artistically than most other saws that typically only cut straight lines. It is worth noting however that straight cuts are difficult with a jig saw, even when using a guide.
Choosing between these electric jigsaws can be difficult, especially with so many to choose from with so many variations. To help you decide which tool suits you best, here are a few considerations:-
