Whenever you think about the purchase of a jigsaw for your workshop or home, you’ll want to be certain to check all important parts and features on today’s modern units. Remember, that not all new extras or accessories are genuinely needed. Some of these extras are really closer to gimmicks. You should compare key components like blade change mechanisms, blade guiding, the jigsaw foot and the gear case, prior to deciding which jigsaw to buy.
With all the examined components and features a jigsaw could/should have, you should now go on and find out and evaluate for yourself what is it that you want to look for when you buy a jigsaw.
I’m glad my article helped you out 🙂 As for budget jigsaws. If you’re not planning on massive amounts of woodworking but just around the house jobs and some projects, these would do just fine.
The price point is very low in some cases and I personally don’t expect them to last very long but for occasional work, they’d be great. I wouldn’t spend more money for a tool I’m not going to use frequently.
I’d get some quality Bosh blades though. It can make all the difference.
