When it comes to using an excellent jigsaw, the dewalt cordless jigsaw could be just what you’ve been looking for in quality, reliability and performance.
Dewalt Cordless Jigsaw
I have used different brand name jigsaws such as Bosch, Makita, Milwaukee among others and find having my dewalt cordless the best way to go.
Back when I was first going to switch from the typical corded jigsaw to a cordless, there were very few options in brand names as there is today. One of the biggest decisions that I was looking at was not to be using too many different brands of cordless tools that would require me to have multiple chargers and batteries for each one. I knew that there would be other tools that would come in handy for cordless use, and I wanted one brand using the same chargers and batteries.
In my line of work I find myself needing to cut out for kitchen and bathroom vanity sinks all the time. I also cut out a lot of tighter circles used for custom shower drains in the floor and around toilet flanges that are great not dealing with any power cords. You do not realize the difference when operating cordless tools on just how convenient they truly are until you replace the use of your corded tools with the battery operated version.
My cordless jigsaw is also great for making cuts in laminate and hardwood flooring that I also do a fair bit. Whether I am working with laying tiles or working with floating and hardwood floors, my jigsaw is always ready to go. Having no power cords lying around makes a big difference when doing flooring especially when dealing with tile work. You can get pretty cramped in some of the smaller bathrooms, but any cordless tools can make quick work of it.
Another great feature of having a jigsaw is any scroll work or scribing cuts on flooring, or counter tops may be required, and the cordless jigsaw can make this task so much easier, again not having to deal with power cords. There are many different kinds of saws on the market which will make up your total tool collection, but I find anybody working with tools on a regular basis will find the need for a good jigsaw. The average jigsaw will cut in most places that you may require the ability to cut curves and circles where most other saws will not have the ability due to size and blade type. There is a newer tool on the block that can pick up where the jigsaw leaves off, and that is the oscillating tools that I’ll get into on another post.
Just with all the different accessories for cutting blades allowing you to cut wood, metal, plastic, ceramic, porcelain and stone tiles give you a better advantage to what type of work you can accomplish. You are also able to cut pipes of varying material if needed from the available blades. As you can see from the photos above and below its easy to see just how flexible a jigsaw can be just by changing out its blade.
For most people, a jigsaw in any form whether corded or cordless is a great tool to have in your main collection. When you own a jigsaw it is not classified as a specialty tool by any means but rather a standard tool that everybody or anybody working around the home, cottage, etc. doing any renovations should have. If you want to spoil yourself, then choose a Dewalt Cordless Jigsaw like DEWALT – 18-Volt XRP Ni-Cad Cordless Orbital Jig Saw Kit. Again there are many brands out there now; I just happen to have a ten-year-old dewalt cordless that’s still going strong, so I’ve never needed to buy another one unlike some of the other contractors I work with, which is like a testament to Dewalt’s quality and reliability for a great product.
