    Literally just picked up my Jigsaw… slowly put down my Jigsaw to watch video.

    Even though I’ve used one for years the amount of times I’ve learnt something new, it’s always worthwhile to check.

    Thanks Anika!! I thought a blade was a blade. Appreciate your teaching.

    very informative

  14. Kathy V. on May 26, 2022 at 8:48 pm

    Well then, the ‘up and down’ blade is the only way to go. How do you look for it in the hardware stores? What is it called?
    Great video. Thanks!

  15. AMcho on May 26, 2022 at 8:50 pm

    Great tutorial! Thanks. I really would like to see something about circular saw while experiencing kickbacks — what to do, how to handle, and staying safe. Thank you.

  16. Hans de Groot on May 26, 2022 at 8:51 pm

    Great tutorial. Thanks for sharing. I don’t use a jigsaw very often because I can’t achieve good cuts with it. With your tutorial in mind I’ll give it a new try.

  27. The Inner Yew on May 26, 2022 at 9:08 pm

    Is there a reason one would choose to not use the dual cut type blade (the one that doesn’t have splinters on top or bottom)?
