Electric Jigsaws

Bosch Electric Jigsaw ToolWhat is an electric jigsaw?

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.

How Do I Choose Which jigsaw Tool I Need?

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:-

  • Power vs. weight: how much cutting will you be doing? It is important to consider which is more necessary - high power or low weight - and decide where the right balance lies for you.
  • Grip type: there are two main types: barrel grip and top handle grip. Which one you use often depends on personal preference, but can also be impacted by how much control you need or desire. The grip circumference is also important to consider, as it will make the machine more or less comfortable to use.
  • LEDs and laser guides: these features improve cutting accuracy by illuminating the work area or providing a perfectly straight guide line
  • Chip and dust management: some models feature a dust blowing function and/or the ability to attach a dust extractor. This is important if you require a clear view.
  • Adjustments and blade changes: some models feature rapid blade changes and adjustments, which are important to consider if working efficiency is key.

Have you considered a cordless model?

We also have a selection of cordless jigsaws at Kelvin Power Tools. These cordless options can be a safer alternative to the corded tools as they remove the trip hazard that can come with power cords.
