  • Jigsaws!!

    Hello!!
    I am going to buy a jigsaw. But I'm wondering, what are some of the less expensive, good quality ones out there?
    Thanks.

    Kenny, jig saws are all about in the same price range. If you see one real cheap like the ryobi stay away. Bosch makes nice saws. You have to decide whether you want a barrel type or the straight up and down type. Try them both and see how they feel in your hand. I would also look into the variable speed ones. The Bosch has a no tool blade changing system which is great and uses bayonet type blades. As you can tell I am partial to Bosch. Dewalt makes a nice saw also. Porter Cable has a good one. Look around and feel it in your hands and see if it is confortable, ease of blade changing, good line of site, bevel capabilities, and variable speed. Good luck.

      Hi Kenny,

      Did you buy your saw yet? I just came across your message. I have a sweet little Dremel scroll saw that works great. I saw a scrollsaw comparisome in a magazine not long ago, December 2003 copy of Workbench Magazine, compared Craftsman, Delta, Dremel, Ryobi, and Wilton.

      None are really expensive ( $99.00 to $210.00) and all will do the job, but some are just more of a pleasure to use than others.

      Good luck with it, and happy sawing.

        Bob reread the post. He is looking for a jig saw not a scrollsaw.

          You are of course right! I had written the note and just hit send when I noticed that he was talking Jigsaw and not Scrollsaw! But, no 'do over' so had to let it go. Sorry about that!

            Hello. I just wanted to say that my grandpa ended up surprising me with a Black & Decker jigsaw for my birthday. It's very nice and I'm quite happy with it. But thanks for the advice and giving me a good laugh when reading your replies.
            By the way, I'm a girl not a boy!

              Hi Rhys - I did finally get the center stand for the bike a couple of weeks back after it was stuck in customs for almost a month. Still have to put it on. The paddock stand will help me do this - Lol!

              Of course you are correct in that the center stand does a similar job but the advantage...

              Did you ever get the centre stand for the bike? A paddock stand does the same thing finally, I guess.

              Very nice Jim. You have a very contemporary look now! Since I do cabinet, Entertainment centers, etc. for my work I see a lot of the same looks being done here in Naples. (i.e. large porcelain tiles, lighted dropped ceiling)

              I do like your use of the space in the door way for additional...
