    Default Re: Want to test a jigsaw for TOH?

    A note from TOH Editorial Assistant Sal Vaglica:

    Hey everyone!
    Sounds like everyone on here is very capable of putting our jigsaws through their paces. But, I need some targeted and specific projects that you have coming up in the next few weeks so that we can decide who to send the tools to for testing. Cutting out a sink hole, maybe, or cutting some ornate trim? If your interested in taking part in the reader review, you've got to give me the details. Looking forward to hearing back!

    Give the jigsaw to me, I'll put it to good use making a loony bin for this cast of characters.

    I'll make sure to dovetail the corners so that these critters can't escape!
    I suffer from CDO ... Its like OCD, but in alphabetical order, LIKE IT SHOULD BE!!!

    I am replacing my existing electric downdraft cooktop in an island with a larger LP model Jenn-Air.

    This will require me to use the jigsaw to cut the opening larger to accommodate the Jenn-Air, which is 45" wide vs the existing 30" electric.

    I would love to test out the jigsaw to do this job! My existing el' cheapo jigsaw gave me fits when I had to use it to do a similar counter top cut out for a larger sink last summer.

    Here's a tip, put painters tape on the sole plate and use a downward cutting blade to minimize tear out and chips on the top.
