This is a very simple simple solution to a problem I had with saw dust collecting in front of my jig saw while I was trying to follow a line. You can do this on a job site very easily. All you do is direct the air from the motor towards the blade. 

<p>ive got a metabo jigsaw that blows air from a duct directly above the sawblade</p>
That's so simple and effective I'm surprised manufacturer's don't do it <br> Great job, I frequently 'loose the line'
That is a fantastic hack - cutting a line and having sawdust keep getting in the way is a pain - - hack logged in memory bank. <br> <br>Big respect. <br> <br>DZ
how didn&acute;t i think of that!! <br>awesome idea
Just in time, got a small project this will come handy. I like thinking out side the box.
Actually, many new jigsaws already come with a &quot;dust blower&quot; system, some even have an adapter for a vacuum hose. Either way, nice and simple workaround if you have a jigsaw without blower.
Can you upload video? thanks
Nice! often the simplest things are the best.
maybe next jigsaw product will be designed like this.. :-)
Hope I get royalties
Ooo. That's good.
Ooo. That's good.
Genial! I will do this on my old, old, old B&amp;D jigsaw.
Thats actually a simple genious move. Nice, I'l have to try that.
