I have a DeWalt jig saw about 5 years old. Still works great. BUT somehow I lost the plastic SHOE I guess is what you call it. The Smooth plastic Shoe that went on the bottom of the jigsaw. Now I have a nekked steel PLATE where there are a few tiny bolts that stick out and they keep getting hung up on what ever I am sawing on. It is very maddening and frustrating.
I went and looked all over the internet for parts but every resources I have looked at say that particular items is no longer available
I hate to bug a new one for another$150 200 plus dollars while the machine itself works great.
I am thinking of EPOXING a piece or smooth hard wood on the bottom or even maybe a piece of Nylon or other plastic on it, but am hesitant
