Introduction: Simple Jig Saw Hack

About: I was a chef for 14 years, Was Gainfully unemployed for a year doing side projects and carpentry work. Now I work for myself doing Software Development

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.

    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.

    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.
