I got this jigsaw for at an auction for $7.00 two of them went up for bit for choice between the two. There was a bigger and newer one with a metal frame but it didn’t have a motor. for $7.00 I should have gotten them both but I only had $50 and it was still early and I wanted the big old school wood clamps that i did get and will be posting very soon.
I haven’t used the jigsaw yet because the frame is REALLY wobbly and the belt is so loose and flops around when it’s running that I’m afraid it’s going to fly off and smack me. I could brace up the stand to try and get the wobble out and put a thin board between the saw and the stand top to get the pullys farther apart to tighten up the belt.
So, what do you think I should do?
