Nice video. Next time start with that safety first suggestion. Thank you.
Thanks for showing new tips.as always. Ps what size of blade for different jigsaw?🍻👍
Novices shouldn’t grab a freshly used blade. They can be kind of hot.
Love this series!
When using a corded jigsaw always be aware of where the cord is
If you own a battery tool you need to buy extra batteries.
eBay & Amazon have 3rd party batteries for cheap. I
have NEVER had any trouble with them. Keep all your
batteries charged. When 1 dies IMMEDIATELY put in
the charger. Put in another battery & go back to work.
My Ryobi 18 I have 3 batteries. My Milwaukee M12
I have 4 batteries. Build your self a charging station.
Mine is on the wall in my shop.
The width of the blade also determines the radius of the cut
Thank you…as I was watching this FedEx drooped off my Ridgid jigsaw I ordered from Home Depot😄
Great video leaving a comment for the algorithm
Just like the "up cut" and "down cut" blades. They also sell blades that are a couple inches longer. So you can cut into softwood that’s close to 3 inches thick. However I still wouldn’t recommend cutting into real thick hardwoods.
I just love your personality your joy and your zeal for your tools thanks for the information this is a wonderful tutorial 👍👍😁 great tips for beginners this is awesome.
thanks for sharing!
Thanks For The Great Info!!!!! 👍😎
Awesome! I have 2 but both are corded. The Firestorm has a laser light and is a nice little saw. The other is a plain jane Mikita and it is fine for just plain straight sawing. I am still a rookie on all power tools, my late husband was the one who made beautiful things. It helps so much to know where I can go to learn about these tools! Thank you!!
Hello my friend, Unless you try what’s new, you can’t learn anything new. And you are always trying to teach innovations. And you always produce innovative works and ideas. Thank you for sharing. See you. Big greetings.
Some great tips there, Thanks.
I was expecting on the bloopers at the end the part were you took out the blade in two seconds, i thought it might get stuck coming out or the blade wasn’t tight? you must have got it right first go, or did you?????
Question, should the gap of the roller guide be larger than the thickness of the blade or should it be as thick as the blade? In my machine, the roller has a gap a bit wider than any blade I have. Thanks in anticipation of your reply.
Some were a refresher, some were new. Thank you for all 20. Especially liked how to use painter’s tape to protect the piece you’re working on.
Thanks for the tips. I learned a couple of new things. I laughed at "Safety First" as it was the last tip presented. 🙂
New Subscriber 🙂 Thanks for sharing your expertise..
Thank you for your excellent video.
Dude amazing jigsaw tutorial…I’ve seen a few but this one hits every question I was having when trying it out for the first time. And it was super concise. Thanks!!!
Thank you great info. I fix cars but I love woodworking.
there are actually jigsaws that have a slow start build in. i think makita does that. it basically always starts the blade slow, and as soon as the machine feels a cut, it speeds up. its a very nice feature.
Thanks again for making this series of back to the fundamentals videos. Keep up the great teaching!
