Would anyone have any advice about trying to get straight cuts with these? …Would anyone have any advice about trying to get straight cuts with these? For some reason even with a straight edge the cut wonders (think diagonal to the guide line AND rail, normally it's in towards the rail not away), all I can think is that the blade bends???



are you perhaps cutting too fast, aka putting on too much pressure, I have seen people wander with a jigsaw before because they try to force it through the wood rather than let the blade do its job at a reasonable pace.

just ease up on the pressure its kinder to the blades and better for the cut.

If she's a beginner, then this one will be great to start off with. Only 8 pieces .

If this is the same quality as the Parkside circular saw I have then this is a great buy; reasonable priced and pretty good. Heat added!
Thanks
This looks the bee's knees, but I just *know* that I'll have forgotten all about it come the 24th

Seems insanely good for DIY users.... Almost wish I had this instead of my puny 600w Bosch, because lasers.

I have used it mainly to install laminate flooring at home and found it quite capable for the job. Initially it was hard to get a straight line but the fault was in the technique rather than the tool. As Syst3mzero adviced, if I let the tool do the job, the lines come out straighter. The work light is good as well as the blower. The dust collection is 70% in the sense that fine dust on the plank and around the blades is collected, but dust below the board falls to the ground. I had it hooked to a parkside vacuum cleaner.

Also, clamping a piece of straight wood to your subject helps as a guide in my experience of using jigsaws in the past. Will pick one up tomorrow, thanks OP - need to cut loft boards to size for garage rafters and picked up the £15 Lidl workbench a while back too.

Thanks I'll see if I can go slower next time.I thought I was but maybe I need to snail. Fingers crossed, I'm just very confused by it all.

May I ask, did you ever have my problem using the wood clamped? It basically veering off at a diagonal (starting small then ending up almost 2cm out)? I admit the line itself was straight, if I wanted it diagonally :P. I have the loft to do next and they'll need to be straight.

As above, that's just down to your technique I would think - let the blade do the work and avoid forcing too hard.

Thank you, I'll give it another shot later nice n slow, fingers crossed, as if it is that I will be very happy. Incidentally I ended up free handing it to try correct, and while it's closer to the line it's more wobbly. Just knowing that people manage to get acceptable cuts has given me hope and the confidence to try again.

I'd get one of those "3-5" years from Disney shop, last time I took me only 4 months to complete.

I was after one of that famous Disney male mouse, but they had none left!

Someone has definitely been taking the Mickey!

Man, just Let it Go...
I went to get one yesterday but they hadn't received them in the delivery lorry, comeback tomorrow, so I went today and they said they aren't getting any. The in store advertisement signs had also been removed.
