i have to add a comment about the jigsaw

after a further go today with the base well secured with a clamp, i am much more impressed with the ability to cut through 3/16" spruce

the only complaint is that the blade is off square (which may be my building skills) so the wood has to be fed at around 3 degrees off perpendicular for the cut to track straight, but allowing for the angle of feed makes it cut straight and true

i can see it getting a bit of a work out when i need formers for a few projects, so i don't feel quite so "robbed" on the purchase

it sure beats a razor saw on harder wood
