A jigsaw is a powerful tool for cutting various hard materials in curved lines. For intricate shapes and thin materials, have a look at a scroll saw or a laser cutter. While relatively straight lines can be achieved by means of a fence, a circular saw (especially chop or table saw) will produce better results if you need precision.

Safety

When using the jigsaw, always take the time to properly clamp down your workpiece, hook up a shop vac and wear safety glasses. Wear hearing protection as it is really loud.

Accessories

Blades

T-shank (T-Schaft) blade suitable for our jigsaws

Some saw blades for various materials should be available in each saw's box - if you broke one or need anything specific, please buy some new ones!

As a rule of thumb, the blade should be at least 1.5 cm longer than your workpiece is thick. [1]

Mitja's jigsaw works with T-shank blades.

It has a laser sight but you are better off ignoring that feature and setting up a solid fence to cut along ;-)

Lukas is permanently loaning his Bosch jigsaw to the Space.

It requires T-shank blades to work.


Malte 3D printed an adapter to use this saw with our Festool shop vac, here's the design on Thingiverse in case it should break or go missing. You may need to tape the adapter to the saw.
