The jigsaw is an electric saw where the cutting activity is given by the vertical responding development of a cutting sharp edge. Thus, the jigsaw is additionally called a jigsaw. Or on the other hand we will likewise discover it as a jigsaw. 

There are other wood saws in which the cutting sharp edge has a responding development, or even that are not controlled by an electric engine, yet in this article we will zero in on those that are electric and are utilized physically by sliding the base or machine skate on the wood to be cut. 

In this article the dance predominantly as a carpentry instrument, despite the fact that it additionally serves to cut metals or plastics.

A jigsaw is a convenient electric saw that slices through the responding development, here and there, of a thin, extended cutting sharp edge. What’s more, by utilizing a thin cutting edge, the jigsaw permits you to make, notwithstanding straight cuts, bended cuts. Subsequently its flexibility. What’s more it likewise permits miter cuts. Concerning miter cuts, these should be possible at a point to the edge of the wood and keeping the shaper edge of the dance upward, or at an upward point by shifting the saw as for the skate or base.As for the framework that works the dance, this is a Scottish burden instrument. What’s more, what we accomplish with the Scottish burden instrument is to change the turning movement of the electric engine into another rectilinear movement.

Concerning the cutting edge teeth for jigsaw, these can have an assortment of shapes and sizes. Also, it even fluctuates the heading wherein the cut is made, which can be during the vertical development of the cutting edge (ordinary), or during the descending development. 

The jigsaw is an exceptionally flexible force device, that permits to make numerous cuts in wood and different materials, and that doesn’t force as much with the roundabout hand saw. Also, since it tends to be utilized to cut in a bend, it is a saw that permits us to communicate our inventiveness while doing our carpentry or DIY projects. 

Parts of the jigsaw: 

The fundamental pieces of a jigsaw, and what permit us to change, work and work with it, are the accompanying. 


Serves to work the dance. As opposed to other force devices like the drill, it isn’t normally used to control speed, yet just has an on or off position. Also, I say they are not typically alluding to controlling it by pulling the trigger with pretty much power. Now and then in the event that they carry the regular wheel to manage the speed. This can be on the actual trigger or on top of the machine.

 Trigger Lock Button

 It isn’t typically utilized a lot, since the cuts that are normally made with the jigsaw are not generally extremely long. Be that as it may, for long cuts we can lock the trigger with this catch. What’s more, in spite of the fact that it might appear to be obviously false, not squeezing the trigger permits us work all the more easily and more refreshed. What we do is press the trigger and afterward press the catch. We discharge both and the trigger is locked. Furthermore, when we press the trigger once more, it opens.

System cutting edge anchor

It is the framework where the cutting edge of the dance saws is fitted. Also, from that point the to and from development is communicated to the leaf. These frameworks can shift outwardly and inside for each brand and for each dance model. In this way, the inside of these mooring frameworks decides the cutting sharp edge models that we can utilize (we should consider the state of the upper piece of the edge, which gets into the securing framework. We will see them later). . Also, concerning the outer shape, there we can discover much more contrasts between the various machines: from the first mooring frameworks with a screw; going through switch frameworks; others that should be pushed on the two sides of the sheet; or even frameworks that turn and launch the cutting edge by the activity of a spring alone. The last are exceptionally valued if the cutting sharp edge is excessively hot.

Cutting sharp edge guide wheel

It is a little metal wheel with a furrow that assists with keeping the cutting edge vertical and that the snaring instrument of the edge isn’t constrained. Despite the fact that as a considerable lot of us definitely know, all that we might want doesn’t help and the cuts in some cases don’t come out vertically. Additionally, in the pendulum dance saws, it is the one that gives the pendulum development to the edge. 

Metal base or skate

It is the base on which the jigsaw rests. What’s more, this base or skate should consistently be all around upheld against the wood to be sliced to keep the saw from bouncing. In it we have the sections and the handles to connect an equal horizontal aide. What’s more, in the skate we additionally normally have the framework to change the tendency of the cutting sharp edge.


Socket to associate the yearning container of the desire framework that we have in the studio. Lessens sawdust dust noticeable all around and keep the cutting line clean so you can see where we cut. Yet, despite what might be expected, it makes the activity with the jigsaw undeniably challenging, since the cylinder as a rule pushes the saw to the sides. I like to put on a cover. Regardless, on the off chance that you work inside, you clearly favor the attractions tube. A smooth one would be of incredible assistance, since the normal ones with the rings that make it simple to twist are constantly snared on the wood to be cut.

Jigsaws are essentially used to make bended, complex cuts in wood, yet can likewise slice through various different materials like plastic, sheet metal and clay tile. 

In spite of the fact that jigsaws dominate at making bent cuts, they can likewise be utilized to make plunge cuts, straight cuts and incline cuts.

Bended cuts 

Jigsaws are significantly more fragile than other controlled saws and their slim edges can be fitted into restricted spaces and follow a bended line effortlessly. 

Notwithstanding the state of their sharp edge, jigsaws are not extremely hefty so they are not difficult to move and guide along stenciled plans. 

Straight cuts 

With a somewhat more extensive cutting edge introduced, a jigsaw can likewise be directed along a straightedge to make straight cuts. 

Straight cuts can be either along or across the grain of a piece of wood or made in another material like cover. 

Plunge cuts 

Jigsaws are genuinely remarkable in light of the manner in which they can make plunge cuts. 

Making a dive cut includes beginning a cut in the center, as opposed to on the edge, of a workpiece. 

It is a helpful method for making openings in wood or plasterboard to take into consideration power plugs or letter boxes. Be that as it may, maybe quite possibly the most widely recognized use of this sort of cut is making a sink cut-out in another kitchen ledge.

Bevel cuts 

Most jigsaws have a turning shoe which empowers them to make slope cuts in moldings and sheets. 

The shoe can be situated at points up to 45 degrees with the goal that the jigsaw cuts on an angle.
