Such a sexist end to your post! I'm a woman and I've just bought one. X) I love tools! I've bought it for doing arts and crafts. Can anyone say if this is suitable or do I need a more powerful one?

​just got one. I have a bigger Bosch for DIY. This has much smaller slimmer blades and is handheld. the parkside has a smaller motor and looks suitable for detailed work . wood 12mm plastic 5mm metal 3mm. it looks like it can do very tight turns.

I'm looking to get more spare blades as there are only 2 blades. eBay doesn't seem to turn up anything obvious.

Sit around the table and pretend you like each other doesn't apply to home parties only but Xmas office parties too especially pre-allocated seating arrangements.

​Thanks. I want it for cutting acrylic to make bits of jewellery so it should do the trick from what you've said. The Bosch ones look good. I've seen others that look quite bulky. The lidl one is only 75w though. I'm worried that might be a problem.

​The parkside looks ideal for close detailed work on a table top. I think 75w will be ok as the blade is tiny.

researching the blades, I can find nothing. on a us site for a similar Proxon jigsaw there is a suggestion that you use a scroll saw blade and clip the blade to the required length.

it looks like you'd get a couple of cut down blades from a scroll saw blade.

Please can you let us know what they say? If it's hard to get blades for it, I'll get a refund.

if I find a specific blade or method I'll post it up cheers

blade details
56.5 mm long
3 mm depth including teeth
24 teeth over 38mm of blade
shank 16mm
going to guess it's about 0.3 to 0.4mm wide.

Proxon seems the most likely source.

It may make little difference but it looks like the middle left (and poss middle right too) of your copies will cut on the down stroke. Mostly jigsaw blades cut on the up stroke thus putting the blade under tension. I'd have thought blades as slim as this might buckle if you try and cut on the down stroke...suspect it's down to making two jigsaw blades from one scrollsaw blade, one is right and one wrong - depends on which end of the scrollsaw blade you use.

yes that is right but iv used them to cut perspex sheet this morning with no problems at all plus this is just a way of let say trial and error it work for me! so just cut both your blades in the down stroke position.

If you see no difference then great, glad they both work and it doubles your yield from each scroll saw blade!

In case others aren't aware the upstroke blade will tend to leave a cleaner finish on the side facing down, the down stroke blade will leave a cleaner finish on the side facing up as you cut (particularly true on brittle or splintery materials). Happy jigsawing!
