I tend to think that whoever invented the jigsaw had an artistic personality, particularly when I see the capabilities of working with wood. With the correct kind of blade a jigsaw can be used for plain cutting, artistic decoration of timber, stencil cutting and also for making straight or curved lines in wood. Apparently it’s one of the most underused tools in carpentry as much as it may seem to be a useful tool. However, there is a lot to know before touching it against a piece of wood lest you mess up your expensive wood. As a carpenter this is one of those tools I would rather have than several different hand saws. It’s efficient, light and portable. That makes it very convenient to use.MetalMetal work is another area where a jigsaw performs very well. For metal cutting a blade of 21 teeth is mostly used as it gives a finer cut with minimal irregular patterns that can be tolerated. It’s also used for drilling holes through which pipes passes through. However the jigsaw cannot be used to cut straight lines on metals. It can’t perform this task to your satisfaction. It should also be noted that when cutting thick metal, a thick blade should be used so as to ensure your blades doesn’t bend or slide out the desired cutting angle. Now that metal works requires more energy in terms of cutting or drilling through, orbital speed, finer blades and pinpoint accuracy is required to give out a quality output.Ceramic tilesAt some point when renovating your house you may need one more pipes to supply more water into your washrooms. How do you cut through the hard, fragile and expensive ceramic tiles? A jigsaw is here at your service. With the correct type of blade, which is the carbide grit jigsaw blade, you can cut through the ceramic tile and find a way out for your much needed additional water pipe. Although other tools like a tile cutter could be used, they wouldn’t do as well as a jigsaw.CountertopsTired of the countertop in your kitchen? Or does your study table have an old rough and ugly surface. You will probably need to bring in a new countertop. Among the most important tools that you will have to carry along is a jigsaw. Drilling round holes on the new countertop would be best done by a jigsaw using the special downstroke jigsaw blades that are designed to drill through hard surfaces.CarpetCarpet cutting requires a high level of accuracy, which is where the jigsaw comes in. Its special soft material blade allows you to make a more accurate and precise cut. It can also be used in cutting leather using the same special blade. It would be of greatest emphasis to use a jigsaw when cutting a carpet or leather material.
