Brent from Gray House Studio will be using a jigsaw to show you how to cut a custom shape out of a piece of wood.

1. WEAR SAFETY GEAR - Any time you use power tools, you have to think about safety. We are going to use safety glasses and ear protection.

2. SECURE THE FOOT PLATE - Double check that the foot plate is nice and secure so it doesn't rotate. If is loose you can grab a screw driver and tighten it to prevent it from wiggling loose while cutting.

3. CHOOSE THE CORRECT BLADE - There are many different types of blades like a wood blade for making tight turns, a wood blade for making fast cuts and metal blades. When selecting a blade, be sure to pick one based on the type of cut and material you are using. Be sure to pick a blade that is at least an inch longer than your board it thick. This will allow the blade to penetrate all the way through the material and prevent it from jamming in the material causing it to break or bend.

4. CLAMP YOUR PROJECT DOWN - Before you start cutting your board, clamp it to the work space so you can focus on the jigsaw and not the work piece.

5. KEEP TRACK OF THE CORD - Always keep track of the cord. It is easy to make a turn and not pay attention and then cut over the cord.

6. CUT FROM THE OUTSIDE TO INSIDE - Start your cut on the outside and save the inside for last. This will make your piece the most structurally sound and keep it from breaking.

7. DRILL HOLES FOR INTERNAL CUTTING - Once you finish cutting the outside of your shape with the jigsaw, take a drill and drill holes through the inside of each shape you plan to cut with the jigsaw. With all the holes drilled, clamp your piece back down and you can use the jigsaw starting at the holes you drilled and going around each shape.

8. MAKE MULTIPLE CUTS - Don't try and make the perfect cut in one pass. Make multiple cuts and come back and clean up areas that don't look good the first time.

he jigsaw comes geared up with all the functions gotten out of a high-end tool producer such as Festool. On the exterior, the Trion uses a sleek, compact look that is easily maneuverable. Inside, this Festool jigsaw features an effective 720-watt motor that can quickly cut a 4-3/4" thick wood beam or a 3/8" thick steel plate.

There is a variable speed dial situated on the back of the Trion's grip which can change the speed from 1000 to 2900 strokes per minutes. However, you can not adjust the speed with one hand while running the jigsaw. One of the very best functions about the Trion jigsaw is the lack of vibration which is characteristic of many tools.

There a number of various blades that are designed to fit the Trion. One of the best functions of the is how easy it is to change blades. It actually takes a matter of seconds to change blades. Merely raise the front lever to release the blade and insert a new blade. Unlike lots of other jigsaws, no tools are required for a blade change. The blade can be run in numerous various stroke modes. Many people familiar with jigsaws call this an "orbit," but it refers to it as a "pendulum" action.

One of the very best features about it is its capability to plunge cut without the need for a starter hole. This can be finished with numerous jigsaws, however the difference is that the Trion does not effect the quality or bounce of the cut. However, for this to be made possible, the base of the jigsaw needs to be adapted to a various position.

Festool tools are extremely popular for their ability to successfully collect dust, and this is no exception. Dust is gathered through a big duct on the center of the jigsaw's base. Through using a chip guard fitted over the front of the jigsaw, dust is gathered incredibly well. Even if the chip guard is removed, efficient dust collection will continue to happen.

Included with every Festool jigsaw is a Systainer storage chest, chip deflector, saw blade, and splinter guard. Overall, the jigsaw tool combines high efficiency and accuracy into a compact and maneuverable tool.
