The old jigsaw wasnt touching it and the saw was next to useless.
Called in at my usual toolstore but the only had the Makita at around £120 or something like that, too rich for me. Called in at screwfix and they had this on offer at £55 and i got acouple of packets of blades thrown in for another fiver.
The test piece is a 2inch thick cable drum reel. It did fairly quick work on the cutting but the blade was bent at some point and the angle of the cut veered off. EIther I bent it holding it incorrectly, as it was put down or maybe when it went through a nail.
Its good enough for semi professional use I reckon and at the price is well worth buying.

good to see you back how is butters doing after being in the vets Iv never used any of the evolution stuff they always look like they have a good paint job so they look cool in your tool box and to get you to buy them, but £50 isn’t a bad price considered I spent £30 on a real cheap 1 because I forgot my jigsaw on a job and needed to cut out around the back of some kitchen carcass’s 1ns never used it since

Fleotus Bing says:

kenrick arthurs says:

Great review, saw one of these at the carboot and managed to get it for a tenner… result!
works very well, liking it loads just a shame about the laser battery compartment lid problem.
keep the vids coming Bongo, always enjoy watching your projects made from the crap that most would throw away..

Gary's Ramblings says:

Great Vid mate.. I paid three times as much for my jigsaw, run it along a straight edge, used the best blades and it still runs out at the bottom of the cut. They’re just not made for anything over about half an inch. The blade hits some harder grain an wanders off, once it does they’re not strong enough to come back to 90 degrees. Keep up the good work Mate cant wait to see the result.
