Post by elfin girl on Tue Aug 27, 2013 4:40 pm

Decent Makita jigsaw tends to last you a lifetime, and they cut nice, and they are quiet.

I got mine second hand for about £50 ten years ago.

It was a pretty rough example when I got it, and then I've used it weekly ever since.

You can get parts for them too which is handy.

My dad has one that as old as me and it's still going strong.

They are "the" jigsaw, used by kitchen fitters and joiners etc.

i will post pics, took one with just the frame work, will take another when the boxing is done, cant post them unless i switch the laptop on and that just seems like like too much hard work!! Very Happy  got picks of the fitting of a solar vent too, not exactly complicated but hey we all like pictures of new bits on the vans!
