Definitions for "Jig Saw"
Reciprocating saw used to make intricate cuts.
Jig saws are one of the most versatile cutting portable power tools. The blade is set vertically and moves up and down while the teeth face outward. A manual scroll allows the user to turn the blade in the direction of the cut without having to turn the entire saw body. An auto scroll automatically moves the blade in the direction of the saws direction. An orbital saw not only moves the blade up and down but it moves it on angles as in a reciprocating action.
Jig saw is a common name for the sabre saw.
