Make a guide to keep the jigsaw table blade vertical

Make a guide to keep the jigsaw table blade vertical

How to make a simple guide to keep the blade vertical in the homemade jigsaw table. With just two small bearings and some pieces of scrap, this is a very easy to make yet very useful guide that will help us to make perfect cuts in a small woodworking shop with our jigsaw table. A great improvement for one of my best homemade tools.

    How do you secure the jigsaw to the board, please, underneath…? Do you have a video on how you made the table base shown here (I couldn’t find it ). Thanks πŸ™‚

    I love your straightforward approach, and I have learned a lot from your good instruction! Thank you so much.

    tremendo ingles XD



  4. cipiripper on February 18, 2023 at 5:38 am

    You could just pull the bearings out with a screwdriver no need to cut the wheel… xD

    Obrigardo



  8. Maz Bamz on February 18, 2023 at 5:41 am

    What diameter of bearing ?



  9. Nomad Bud on February 18, 2023 at 5:41 am

    run the guides from the side , so long stock can be cut .



  10. killer murderer on February 18, 2023 at 5:42 am

    Brilliant idea putting the nylon in the bearings!



  11. Lenny M on February 18, 2023 at 5:45 am

    How about putting the support from the side in place of putting it behind the blade?



  12. mozge.gurbuz on February 18, 2023 at 5:45 am

    Great videoπŸ‘ Thanks for sharing. First, I will build the table in previous video then I will build that one



  13. daddybear on February 18, 2023 at 5:45 am

    I love how you always find the simpler solutions. Your stuff works well and simple to make for us newbies πŸ‘Œ

    Why are you cutting a 2×4 with a Jigsaw? lol.



  15. Stu Bidaso on February 18, 2023 at 5:50 am

    havent made the guide yet but inverted the jigsaw. my work piece jumps up and down a LOT. i tried many different blades and speeds. any advice?



  16. Watts Creates on February 18, 2023 at 5:51 am

    You have a thick accent, but I can tell you have taken care to make the words understandable. You did a great job. Everything was clear. Awesome work. Smart idea ☺️



  17. Olaf Schermann on February 18, 2023 at 5:51 am

    Another great and cheap DIY Solution. As a safety feature i would attach an emergency stop button which disrupts the power to the jigsaw.



  18. Indiana Jones on February 18, 2023 at 5:52 am

    That’s a great idea my friend



  19. Hazar Ra Mughol on February 18, 2023 at 5:53 am

    Best tutorial ever thanks a lot



  20. Helen Escandor on February 18, 2023 at 5:54 am

    Excellent and you explained very well and patiently. Cheers!☺



  21. jrgal27 on February 18, 2023 at 5:54 am

    brill i made something very similar to cut my toenails but the blade kept breaking



  22. Chris Jones on February 18, 2023 at 5:55 am

    If you used a Bosch GST type jigsaw would you need a blade guide ?



  23. Stelios Kasikis on February 18, 2023 at 5:56 am

    THANK U AGAIN! U r the best!



  24. Farmer Fpv on February 18, 2023 at 5:58 am

    Fantastic build/tutorial mate, I built one similar but with 3 bearing supports, 1 behind the blade to keep friction down and the other 2 on the sides. It gets a lot of force pushed on the blade, you should consider using 3 bearings for the blade supports. It operates much smoother and much more precise. Also used a narrower blade to get tighter radius cuts. I’m sure yours is perfect I’m just really picky about precision, lol.



  25. Hassan Al-Mosawi on February 18, 2023 at 5:59 am

    Thanks,Β  what are the size of the bearings?

    soooooo simple and so efficient. Thank you sooooo much!!!!!



  27. Jeff on February 18, 2023 at 5:59 am

    Thank you Sergio, this is exactly what I needed for my jig saw.



  28. niklar55 on February 18, 2023 at 6:00 am

    Instead of plastic plugs, it would be better to use short pieces of aluminium rod, and drill a little off centre, then they would be adjustable, for greater precision.

    Simple and effective. Two words every builder wants to hear. Thanks



  30. bidomo on February 18, 2023 at 6:05 am

  31. Julio Ramos on February 18, 2023 at 6:06 am

    No hay necesidad de ponerle eso



  32. Nomad Bud on February 18, 2023 at 6:09 am

  33. Bro. Steve on February 18, 2023 at 6:10 am

  34. Lajos Nagy on February 18, 2023 at 6:10 am

    Dear Mr. Sergio AcuΓ±a Padin! I would like to ask from You some important
    information about DIY working with guided jigsaw blades. Please write to me
    when You work with softwood pieces do you switch off the pendulum stroke? When
    not which setting You used to do? (My good old AEG STPE-60 jigsaw has
    0-I-II-III settings). And finally what kind of stroke rate You used to dob y
    softwood? ( AEG STPE-60 has 300Γ·3100 stroke/min) Thank You very much

    wheres circlaur saw



  47. n g on February 18, 2023 at 6:26 am

    Bearings from skateboards or inline skates from junkshops be fine for this…



  48. rachel Hen13 on February 18, 2023 at 6:28 am

    Just recess the top to set the saw plate in then screw down so the saw plat is flush with tsble



  49. Ello Man on February 18, 2023 at 6:29 am

    what about the security of your fingers?…
