Festool Carvex PS 420 EBQ Jigsaw Review – 561593

Did you know that in 1946 Albert Kaufmann designed the first Jig Saw?  He replaced the needle in his wife’s sewing machine with a blade.  I am sure after his wife saw what he did, he spent many nights sleeping on the couch.  Lucky for us, his many nights on the couch made our lives much easier in todays world.  Now almost all the major brands have a Jig Saw.  Well that might be the case, but no one has the Carvex by Festool.  I give it to Festool, they could have sat back and said we have a...

Ridgid R3100 Compact Jigsaw Review

Once again Ridgid has come up with something new and innovative for the Fuego line of tools. Next up for the Fuego line is the Ridgid R3100 Compact Jigsaw. At a first glance the Ridgid R3100 looks like a spin-off from the Pekingese breed. The Ridgid R3100 is very small and compact, weighing in at only 4.4lbs.

Dewalt Jig Saw Review – Model DW331KR

     A Jig Saw is a pretty cool power tool, it gives the user a lot of freedom to make a variety of cuts, not just straight lines.  The Dewalt Jig saw model number DW331KR is no different.  Dewalt made a pretty heavy duty saw providing it with a 6.5amp motor that delivers variable speeds of 500-3,100 SPM.  The stroke length is 1″ making it a snap to cut through most any thick material.  As with most Jig Saws this features a key less blade change.  One item we really like it this has a total of four different orbital positions to choose from.  The bevel capacity is 0-45 degrees.  One nice item to mention is the weight is 6.4lbs, so its not too heavy, but at the same time its not too light where you might loose control of your cut.  Two other notable items are the non-marring shoe which protects glossy materials from scratches.  The other is the dust blower. Dewalt Jig Saw Review The Dw331KR is a factory reconditioned Dewalt Jig Saw.  We know some of you don’t like reconditioned power tools, but this is one worth taking for a test drive.  One great thing to notice about this saw is the feel.  We have picked up some saws where they are extremely light and just don’t feel right in your hand.  The Dewalt jig Saw is just...
