Been waiting for these to come up again just to have since getting rid of my band saws. for some light pattern cutting. Yeah you can use a jigsaw or make a jigsaw table but why bother for 59 bucks, nothing i'm gonna use regularly but have some uses for it.

Anything you'd use a jigsaw for except upside down. Different blades for different materials like a jigsaw, it's just a jig saw mounted upside down in a table. With a jigsaw you have to have clearance under the cutting surface because you're cutting from the top down, this flips it. iirc the arm is removable so you could do some inside cuts too like a jigsaw.

you could use it to rip or cut light stuff do curves inside out,etc, Not even as close to a bandsaw or scroll saw but will get the job done in a pinch. You could cut trim,etc with it, anything you'd use a jig saw for just about as long as you can do it on a table as opposed to taking the jigsaw to the work.

I don't know what anyone else uses it for i'll use it rough tracing patterns from templates before finish routing or roughing out a template before cleaning up on the router...something i used to use my bandsaws for mostly since i don't do resawing....quicker blade changes. I can use my jigsaw too for that but sometimes it's easier to cut from bottom up.

There's plenty of diy plans to make a jigsaw table by mouting a jigsaw upside down under a table, wood, etc but for 59 bucks with dust control, fence,etc not really worth the hassle to me

just google jigsaw table, like ...

Add 4 packs of blades and get $20 off $100. Blade runner + 4x saw blade packs comes out to around $90.

Meant to add another thing is small parts you cant do that with a jigsaw without glueing it down to something

Can you use standard jig saw blades? Or you need to buy special blades?

I'm in the same boat. Hopefully this video will help you decide.

So is a jigsaw

edit, it's variable speed too so if not running wide open won't be the max just like a jigsaw too
