A jigsaw is a type of reciprocating saw. It cuts an accurate curved line using an up-and-down motion. Guides can be clamped onto the base plate for making parallel or circular cuts. Shallow blades are more maneuverable than deeper ones. Miter cuts can be made by tilting the saw's main body. Use on a high speed for cutting wood and a slower speed for cutting metal or ceramic tiles.
