Bosch GST 150 CE Jigsaw

Description:

A jigsaw power tool is a jigsaw made up of an electric motor and a reciprocating saw blade.

Jigsaws are ideal for cutting curves and complex shapes in wood. They also work well for making short crosscuts on a board and finishing inside corner cuts. Jigsaws are not good for making fast, long, straight cuts. Use a circular saw instead.

In the past, what is now usually called scroll saws were often referred to as jigsaws. A power jigsaw may also be referred to, by some manufacturers, as a "bayonet saw" or sabre saw.

Safety

  • Use always safety glasses
  • Change the blade with the machine umplugged and not in direction of your face.
  • Check that the cutting line does not pass over the work table.(don't hit the table with the blade)
  • The electric cable must extend on the opposite side of the cutting direction

How to use

  • Used for free shapes
  • Choose the right blade. Depending on the material, the thickness and the maximum angle of the cutting curve
  • The blade have to be at least 1 cm longer than the thickness of material
  • Don’t change the T shape blade in direction of your face, lie down the tool and change the blade
  • Use a fence for perfectly straight cuts. Hold the workpiece and the fence firmly with clamps.
  • Avoid driving blades into the bench top.
  • With hardwood use slow speed (to much friction can burn the material)
  • With softwood can use fast speed
