Why in the world, no Jigsaw manufacturers thought of doing the blade on the
right or left side instead of in the middle ?!!! Don't they have engineers
with focus group telling them that trying to use a jig saw within a big
somewhat deep hole flush to a wall is mission impossible ?
Dang! if that is not the craziest idea I've ever heard.
So you have a hole on the left...hey I need a right hand bladed jigsaw.
I can see it now sales drop and the manufacturer goes bust because the
righthand jigsaw is selling more than the left.
A little crazyness in life is just good for anybody !
Seriously, it was an opening my father tried to make in the roof between
trust to put skylights.
He had to do holes in the 4 corners, go on the roof, mark the lines and cut
With a right or left hand Jigsaw you can cut flush. Yes, that would mean
that you will cut always from the same side.
Didn't used to be impossible. Saws were available with rotating
pistons, you can set the
blade at 90 degrees to the footplate centerline and cut left/right at
or near flush to an obstacle.
My cheapo isn't of this type, but it looks possible to put a right
angle clamp onto
the end for similar cutting effect.
