First off we’d like to thank Lenox tools for contributing all the blades to this test to keep the playing field as level as possible.
Jigsaws have been around for a while, they were invented in 1946 by an engineer in Switzerland who replaced the needle is his wife’s sewing machine with a saw blade (nice!). The Bosch tool company eventually acquired the company he started and the rest as they say is history.
Bosch may have been the first major toolmaker to produce jigsaws but these days they’ve got some stiff competition.
Top Handled, Corded Jig Saw Comparison Testing
Head To Head Testing: We took an extensive look at the major top handled, jig saw models on the market to see how they compared. With hours of cutting and critical analysis of each saw’s features and performance we are providing readers with a comprehensive look at each saw’s bright-spots and areas for improvement. Please note that all saws feature a 1″ stroke length.
We tested the following jigsaws:
Festool Carvex PSB 420
4.5 Amp brushless motor
