Introduction: Simple Jig Saw Hack

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.

It's a perfect example of that things we see and think 'why the manufacturers doesn't include it in their tools'... Thanks for share.

ive got a metabo jigsaw that blows air from a duct directly above the sawblade

That's so simple and effective I'm surprised manufacturer's don't do it
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.

Big respect.

how didn´t i think of that!!
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 "dust blower" 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.. :-)
