A jig saw is one of the common power tools
used in most workshops for special cutting works. It is designed to use a reciprocating (push and pull type of motion) saw and an electric motor. At times, you might find the jig saw being called bayonet saw. Most jig saws in the market utilize blades that are attached to the tool using screws. However, some modern models allow you to simply snap the blade to the tool. The common type of blade used in jig saws is the t-shank. It is considered the industry standard. However, you can also use u-shank design. The blades used in Jig Saws are designed using materials such as high-speed steel and high-carbon steel depending on the workpiece to cut. To use the jig saw effectively, it is important to factor other crucial components such as the cutting angle and teeth shape for clean cuts. If you want to get clean and fast cuts, you should go for the side set.
