Jigsaw table with a blade guide that consists of
three miniature ball bearings, cut off miter channel and holding component.
The table is made of an inch thick plywood and 1/4” Corian.
So far it works as I intended.

Now THAT is what you would call Yankee Ingenuity here in the United States! Very unique solution on how to turn a jigsaw into a band-saw-like tool!

Very cool!

I’ve been pondering doing something just like this.
Excellent design! Thanks for the inspiration!

A little bit of woodworking and some machining.

Very Nice
This would be awesome attached to a flip top table, so you can flip it over attach the jig saw, then flip it back for use ..

This idea has real potential! You could make a very high capacity bandsaw as long as you don’t need to do too thick of stock!

I like the blade guard/stabilizer. This looks very useful.
Do you have any pictures showing how you secured the jigsaw?
