The jigsaw is a versatile tool that can make various cuts through almost any material — including wood, metal, plastic, ceramic, leather and vinyl.
The jigsaw's blade length determines how deep the saw can cut into stock. Its blade guide holds the blade in place and can be adjusted to the angle you wish to cut. The jigsaw's orbital-action setting adjusts the bite and speed of cutting. The tool's tilt base can be adjusted up to 45 degrees for cutting bevels.
When cutting curves or lines with a jigsaw, observe the following recommendations:
