-_-, Them is some nice looking machines. I got a Bridgeport that looks real similar. I got a large Leblond that has been ridden hard. Here is my avatar making rubbish. Hey, how did Jagerbond get in the video? :shock: Oh that was a 8 X 13 X 36 inch block of 6061-T6 aluminum.

I've used jig saws like those. They are a beast that can be hard to control. They dance too much for fine work. They are OK for making a big hole in Sheetrock to install the new dryer vent, but they are not my favorite tool.

Hate to double post but I just went out and bought the Craftsman Evolv Corded Jig Saw, I have yet to test it but I will post a few pics after testing and maybe a video. I plan to use it to cut a few stocks. Now heres the unboxing pics.

I also have the evolve. I really like it ,it makes nice turns and has a smooth blade change. The reliability has been great so far.It is also great at cutting sheet PVC.

Thanks that reassured me since I wasn't 100 percent sure about it since it was so cheap, 30 dollars, how does it work on wood, I'm planning on using to cut out a few stocks

I haven't tried on anything like oak or walnut but it handles plywood pretty well. The lever on the side is supposed to help when cutting wood but not anything harder but, I have never bothered to try it out.
