Kelvin Power Tools stock a wide range of professional standard cordless jigsaws from top manufacturers like Bosch, Panasonic, DeWalt, Makita, Festool and Skil. Cordless jigsaws are generally best suited to light usage when light weight and portability are priorities. Cordless jig saws are also great for making cuts in awkward places, even overhead. Our cordless jigsaws are available in 14.4v and 18v, a variety of battery chemistries, and as full products or naked tools.
Cordless jig saws are designed for cutting curves such as stenciled designs and custom shapes in a variety of materials including wood, metal, laminates, tiles and plastics. They can be used more artistically than most other saws that typically only cut straight lines, but it is worth noting that straight cuts with jigsaws are difficult even with a guide. These curve cuts are made with a small, thin, reciprocating blade, and it is important to match the blade type to the material being cut. Bosch and Festool make a wide range of blades for specific materials and finishes.
Cordless jigsaws vary quite substantially. Grip-wise, there are two main types: barrel grip and top handle. Some jigsaws feature pendulum action, which moves the blade side to side as well as up and down. This allows the jig saw to cut faster, reduces jamming, and extends the blade’s life. Other important features to look for are vibration levels, robustness, grip circumference and blade changing/plate adjustment system.
