  • 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.

              Norma and I are still growing into our 'new' home but are really happy that we got this work done and everyone who has seen the transformation have been wowed.

              From my side I'm really pleased with how my kitchen extension idea worked out....

              Hi guys - it seems like I am back in business. The offending 'F' key seemed to lack sufficient travel to push down on the main board so I stuck a thin sliver of plastic under it with super glue and that seems to have solved the problem.

              The only downside is I now have no excuses for my...

              WOW! I really like your taste in doors etc. I have have always leaned towards contemporary / modern. But our house is a small cape and that style would not suit it. Since we are both Geminis we have 4 people and our house is very eclectic. Each room has a bit of different style.

              You tube is a real blessing when it comes to learning new stuff. I have watched one that compared the flux core and gas mig weld. If I remember correctly polarity comes into play. The flux core weld was really nice. Have fun.
              I was told by the cardiologist that I am not allowed to weld because...

              The contacts on the keyboard main board are a screen printed silver metal the keys have small membrane switches under them, the probability of repair is slim. spilled coffee takes out the contacts almost instantly, the voice of experience,
