Other jigsaws have a blade. That's where the similarities end.
Trying to achieve a perfect 90 degree cut in thick material, or prevent blade deflection when cutting a radius and avoid chip out in your material, all the while fighting poor blade visibility -- these are all common issues when using a jigsaw. Well, they used to be anyway. Here at Festool, we care about the details that other manufacturers seem to overlook. For that reason, Festool will forever change your expectations of a jigsaw.
Exceptional Cuts. Exceptional Value.
Most jigsaws have a hard time staying on course. Hard material and curves can easily cause the blade to deflect, resulting in time consuming re-cutting or sanding. Trion jigsaws are designed with adjustable carbide-tipped jaws that work with the blade clamping system. They also feature a back-up bearing for triple blade guidance that keeps the blade perpendicular to the shoe at all times, even on curves. The barrel grip PS 300 is designed to fit your hand with a low center of gravity. The PSB 300 has all the qualities of the PS 300, with the addition of a comfortable D-handle for easy one-handed use.
The secret to splinter-free cuts is full material support at the cutting point. Trion jigsaw splinterguards are designed to be cut by the blade for perfect zero-clearance between the blade and the splinterguard. The resulting cut is clean through the entire piece with little to no finishing required.
