Default Festool Jig Saw Now Old News

Check out the realatively inexpensive Mafell jig saw, which you can get for a little under eight hundred:

Mafell P1 cc Jigsaw in T-MAX Systainer | ToolNut.com!

The reason I have what you want is, I never lent it out before.

Scraps are a myth.

We might be able to trade in a bunch of unused insulaiton in exchange for one. Or maybe not.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Did I miis something? They talk about a 'patented blade guidance system', yet there appears to be no difference between that and a bosch. There isn't anything between the blade carrier and the foot so unless the blade is thicker, how is it going to be more accurate?

When everything around you is going to pot, get out in the workshop.

I guess it's all a matter of perspective.
