A jig saw is a popular power tool among DIYers. They're safe and easy to use and are great for cutting curves in wood. With the right blade they can also cut through other materials including steel, fibreglass and drywall. Jig saws are faster at cutting than a hand held coping saw and offer better portability with cordless options available. Since they're small and lightweight, jig saws can be used in any size workspace.
Jig saws offer plenty of options for cutting. They can cut through a variety of materials of various thickness and density. Not just for cutting curves, you can also use a jig saw to make bevel cuts. This makes jig saws a good choice for DIYers as you can get away with cutting a variety of materials without needing an expensive table saw. Customize your cuts by swapping out different blades for endless DIY options.
