Why should I buy a Jigsaw?
If you’re into your DIY, then you probably have a Jigsaw after realising how essential the tool is. However, if you’re new to DIY or you’ve only done a few projects then you might be considering purchasing a Jigsaw, or not even considered it at all. This blog will provide you with reasons why a Jigsaw is the perfect and most diverse tool for a woodworking DIY.
Firstly, it’s one of the most versatile tools you can own as you can perform an incredible number of tasks with a Jigsaw. There are thousands of different blades available, and each blade offers something different.
Unlike most other woodworking power tools, with the right blade, you can perform a curved cut with a Jigsaw which makes it perfect for precise jobs. With a Jigsaw, you can cut curved at high speeds while still getting the smoothness you’d expect.
It’s described as a woodworking tool, but you’ll be able to cut metal, plastic, acrylic and soft materials with this tool with no issues. As long as you have the right blade, you’ll be able to cut these materials.
Jigsaw blades are both corded and cordless. Each has their own benefits, but it provides you with a choice as to whether you want to work with or without a wire. For portability, a cordless saw is what you want; however, if you’re certain to have a power source every time you use the saw then corded is probably the saw for you.
Anybody can use a Jigsaw as it’s easy to use. It’s also one of the safest power tools going (although it can still be dangerous if used incorrectly). It’s the perfect starter tool, so if you’re teaching the kids a bit of DIY then this is definitely the first power tool they should use.
You can get a wide range of project done with this saw. If you want to test it out, a few basic tasks are to build a birdhouse, simple cut-outs or making a simple basic storage chest. You’ll get the hang of using the tool after a few minutes.
