Looking Info On Jigsaws
This morning I began to shoo for jigsaws again. I know, I've been here before but did not end up buying one due to Herb "giving" me that beautiful Hegner Scroll saw at the time, but now I'm back looking for a jig saw as since a scroll saw does work wand do as does a jig saw does.
I looked at the Dewalt 331k which is a corded saw for $150, then at the 331B cordless for the same money but without a gattery or chager. I had some trouble finding the price for those items so I looked at a PC saw. The only one that I see is much cheaper than the Dewalt and is cordless.
Since I have the PC cordless drill, I'm wondering if the jig saw runs on the same battery as does the drill, it appears as though it does.
However, since the PC is so inexpensive, about a third that of the Dewalt I am inclined to shy away from it. I am not certain why as so far, I have had good luck with my PC router and cordless drill.
I'm wondering if anybody owns the PC jigsaw and has any opinions on it and can confirm that it runs on the same battery as does the drill. Since I have the charger and two batteries for the PC, the PC jigsaw looks good from the cost standpoint, but by the same token, if the saw is of low quality, well, that's important too and while I don't use a jig saw very often, when I do, I'd like for it to work well.
