Great deal.

Keeping in mind a few things:

-Jigsaws, a bit like track saws and maybe routers (unlike, say circ saws or sds drills) are one of the few tools that gravitate towards 240v, rather than 110v. (ie: for pro shop use, and the extra oomph. Even many US operators will seek out 220/240v shop tools). This is obviously 240v.

-Bosch Jigsaws have always been amongst the best in the world.

-Difference between Bosch Green and Blue? A lot of the time, not really as much as one might be led to believe! (I own thousands of pounds worth of Bosch Professional gear).

-You can buy 10 or more of these for the price of 1x 240v Festool. This will be about 90% as good for over 90% of cases. For £38. Really.

-There is really zero argument for spending anymore on any exotic "t-shank" style Jigsaw (ie: this or the Festool, and 99% of rivals). Anyone that would attempt to do so is certifiably insane. To go that route you would not be looking at that Festool anyway. That would be Mafell (equally exotic and expensive), who make the undisputed best Jigsaws in the world, and have an entirely unique patented blade mechanism.

In conclusion. If in the market for a 240v jigsaw, this is a no brainer. Even professionals could easily use this, whilst laughing at those who bought a Festool!

Is this good to shorten doors straight/parralel? Or should I opt for track saw?

Would it handle 18mm marine ply, or is that too much? I'm trying to avoid buying really expensive gear as it's for a one off (shed floor).

Is this any good for acrylic board?? Or shall I buy the cheapest available saw and a good quality blade??

Isn't 110v for building site use?
Correct. Many guys (eg: kitchen fitters, cabinet makers etc) will purposefully seek out 240v versions, where possible. Slightly more power.

You'd probably be better off with a circular saw there mate.... The slightest nudge when using a jigsaw will cause a crooked cut. Unless you have wood to practice on first, go circular saw.
Deal seems to have been removed.
Boo.................up to £67 now
Gone back up to full price Just missed it
Damn and blast - needed a new jigsaw and looks like I just missed out.
Edited by: "Emeye" 25th Aug
Very good price, really don't need a new one though hmmm
Get the battery 18v version. Though don't expect it to cut with the precision of a pro tool it's good enough.
Out of stock now! Gutted I missed this!
