I just saw this on Amazon. The guy with the jigsaw looks pleased with himself. I think they’re pushing it a bit with the picture frame.

didn’t know bosch tools over there were green…here they are blue

also not sure how much this would really work. generally i feel that jig saw blades wobble too much to really matter how straight your trying to cut it.

I think it’s an interesting idea, and at one time, I would have really found it compelling. I used to live in apartments, and tried to work on hobbies with no dedicated space. Also, now that I have a high quality (Bosch) jigsaw, I can see more possibilities than I could with my old pawn shop B&D jigsaw.

I agree that the picture frame example is probably pushing it, but the flooring example is one I can relate to even now. I installed some laminate flooring a while back and was running back and forth to the shop to do cuts. If I’d had something like this, it would have really sped the process and still provided quality cuts. Cutting molding looks compelling for the same reasons (but in the video that there is no closeup of this joint). Notice that the video doesn’t show where the sawdust ends up.

Having seen this, however, I find myself thinking about how I could make something like this….
