Jig saw is a small type of electric saw machine, which is also written as jigsaw. Electric jig saw can be used in cutting/sawing irregular curves on wood, steel, plastic and other materials, through reciprocating saw blade. Install a special saw blade, it can be used to cut metal. Install a saber, it can be used to saw profiles, cast iron pipes, concrete pipes, etc. To some extent, jig saw can perform the functions of band saw, scrolling saw, and even circular saw.

Jig Saw Features
In an electric jig saw with orbital action, saw blade moves slightly forward to cut into the workpiece as it swings upward. Then it moves slightly backward on the down stroke, because saw blade will reset for the next sawing stroke. The trajectory of saw blade is slightly elliptical, which minimizes the wear of saw blade and eliminates the chatter phenomenon that sometimes occurs, and cutting action is smoother.
High-quality electric jig saws usually have variable speeds to meet different sawing requirements. For woodworking, variable speed may not be necessary. In metal cutting or complex curve cutting, a slower speed will help the sawing effect.
In woodworking applications, most electric jig saws can cut depths of up to 3.15-inch, and on steel they can cut about 10mm. Some jig saws may have greater cutting capacity, but it is not that the deeper the cut, the better. Because the deeper the saw blade is inserted, the more likely it is to bend and break.
Nowadays, there are more and more cordless electric jig saws on the market, and they are very convenient to use. However, if you need a single jig saw, a corded jig saw is a better choice because it can handle all sawing works easily.
An electric jig saw with laser function can emit a laser guide wire, which is a thin red cutting line projected from the front of the saw. Laser function helps to improve the accuracy in straight cutting.
