Can anybody recommend a good jigsaw?

Post by Federico » Fri Apr 30, 2010 2:10 am

Looking into getting a jigsaw to get some of the cutouts a bit more easier done than by hand.
What are you using? Can anybody recommend a good lightweight jigsaw I should look into?

Thanks for any help.

If cost is a consideration, I recently picked up a very decent Porter Cable jigsaw at Lowe's for $80. Excellent value for $$.

However, if you want smooth & excellent performance, go with the higher-cost Bosch (they make excellent tools) jigsaw. More adjustable, infinitely smoother, for about $175.

From FrankieD's lips to your ears: Sunfire - a quiet box of endless power.

Sunfire TG-IV/400~7 Amp
Carver SD/A-360 CDP
Benchmark DAC-1
Active bi-amp: Ashly XR-1001 & 2 Rane PEQ-15s
Main: HotRodded AL-IIIs
Sub: Klipsch RT-12d
Center: Sunfire CRS-3c
Surround: Sunfire CRS-3 (x 2)

I'll second the Bosch recommendation. I used one for 15 years, sold it to my neighbor, bought a new one of the same model 6 years ago. (top handle type) ... d_i=228253
