  1. get the blade to fit the job... only abot 300 different ones to pick from... compliments of Bosch and the blades are Bosch numbers.. JIGSAW BLADE GUIDE.pdf
  2. This a Steve Good pattern. It started life as an 8 1/2 x 11 pattern, I blew it up with "big print" 7' long. Cut with my Boshe jigsaw and Boshe scrolling blades. This will be part of the decorations for a local charity fundraiser.
  3. Have had this jigsaw for many years but needs a spring replaced on the blade holder. Also don't have a operating manual. Anybody..thx
  4. Too bad I didn't have something like this when I was in grade school... I found a picture of the original 48 US states and posted it then enlarged it with Rapid Resizer to about 20 inches wide.Then printed a pattern and using two 1/4" Baltic Birch pieces of plywood I used one as a backer board and the other I cut out the states. I then glued the outline of the states on to the backer board and since I had lots of states to color I decided to use kids water colors...This one I made in 2000 . I think the next ones I make will have the names of the states on the back side along with the capitals of each state also..I doubt if anyone out there can name all of these 48 states in about 10 minutes and for sure would never be able to name the capitals of each state in a life time...
  5. Stumbled upon this tonight...worth the look...once in a lifetime goldmine find for NIB vintage tools. https://indianapolis.craigslist.org/tls/d/vintage-craftsman-and-other/6655669969.html
  6. I have been looking for my jigsaw, it was a Bosch that I got from a pawn shop on eBay a few years ago and it looks like it has been stolen. I really liked it and it had the original owners name carved into it and came with many blades. It was a top handle one but can't find any information what model it was. I've been looking on line to have Santa to replace it. I see a JS260 for a good price, but wonder if is a good one for a hobby woodworker? I hadn't used my old one for a long time so I don't know when it disappeared. But when you need one, you have to have one. I can't find any information on if it is at the bottom of their line of jigsaws. Anyone out there have a JS260?
  7. Well I’m back after a mini vacation and dealing with transportation issues (Blew the rings in my van and getting an old truck road worthy) So,. here are some of the techniques I used on the snowflake project: 1. I only had one paper pattern for each size so I optimized the material and cut a single snowflake of each size. 2. Using the cut snowflakes as templates I laid out the rest of the flakes to optimize the material (keeping in mind how many of each size the customer wanted). 3. I started by using three sawhorses to support the 4 x 8 sheet of plywood, this allows two sawhorses to support the majority of the plywood while the third supports the opposite side of the cut. I shifted the position of the third sawhorse as necessary. 4. I separated each flake from the full sheet first, then went on to cut all of the flakes. 5. While separating the flakes I cut the outside “flats”. I could have just cut between each flake, but that would have added to the cut time, wear and tear on the saws and the number of blades that I used. 6. I used appropriate supports for each size of flake; for the two larger sizes I used two sawhorses, cutting in between the horses for maximum support (rotating the piece as needed). For the smaller flakes I used the workmate with the clamp jaws extended as needed. 7. As for the actual cutting I used a scroll blade exclusively. I can cut straight with it when needed and changing back and forth is a pain. The HF and Bosch blades held up pretty close to each other (HF was U blades Bosch was the T blades, HF did not have mutipacks of T scroll blades)(HF scroll blades were 12 tpi, the Bosch 20 TPI so the Bosch blades did cut smoother). 8. While cutting the patterns I used some scrollsaw tricks, When cutting a sharp inside corner I would cut to the line and then widen the kerf until I could turn the blade without stressing it. When cutting a sharp outside corner I would cut through the waste area to the line, follow it to an inside corner I had previously cut ( allowing the waste to be removed ) then cutting the other side of the outside corner (now exposed). I’m not sure how clear this is, I was working alone. Next time I’ll try to take pictures or video. I rarely think of that while I’m cutting.
  8. I may need to replace my inexpensive B&D jigsaw soon, it really heats up after about 15 minutes of use (130 degrees). I am looking for personal experience here I can google reviews or look on Amazon, but I want real reviews not cheerleaders. So, a couple of questions: 1. T or U? 2. Brand and model please. Thanks in advance. My usage is occasional, but when I do use it, it will be for hours at a time. The current project is cutting out large (38") snowflakes for the bosses wife (local winter fund raiser) 2 full sheets of 5/8 plywood. 4 sizes of snowflakes, at least 4 of each size.
