Wooden Tool Man: Jig saw saber saw same thing in my world
Kevin Dumais: I found this somehow and find Stumpy very entertaining.
I subscribed after this video.
QUABLEDISTOCFICKLEPO: I've always felt that the jig saw was potentially a great tool that had
been brought out before it was perfected, and I have looked for ways to
make it more useful. I finally found a German firm that makes accessories
for jig saws, and I was on the brink of buying them when I got their
invoice prior to paying PayPal. It was over $200, so I dropped that idea
and kept looking. I also found a plan which consisted of drilling a hole
in a platform and attaching a jig saw below it. That's what I'm going to do
now, because that is one DIY project that I know I can do. Later? well when
I gain more confidence, I might try building your solution. It looks great,
but I doubt that I would be able to build it (diagrams would help).
Incidentally, I can't be sure, but it looks like your rig provides a lip
for using clamps secure the wood to the rig's table. I think that that by
itself makes the jig saw more useful.
HostileHST: He has a cool cowboy hat, wrist radio and sunglasses, don't he? Just
kidding, I liked the video, but had to put my asinine 2 cents worth in
Thien Huynh: Why don't you cut something b4 buying your plan?
Adam16660: a jigsaw is only called a jigsaw. A sabre saw, reciprocating saw and a
sawzall are all the same thing. If you ask someone to get you a sabre saw
don't cry when they bring you a sawzall/reciprocating saw.
roon demahom: Excellent presentation. Explanation very short, sharp & straight to the
point. Easy to follow up without a plan or a rough drawing or a blueprint.
Very easy to understood theory & practical. I really enjoyed all your video
clips. I liked your way of tutorial concept, slow & calm. Double thumbs up
to you for your efforts & once again a big thank you for your very useful
info & tips. That was truly impressive for me. You are one of Professor
Genius Sir David Einstein of modern and advanced mechanical engineering.

flash582: I finished one of these last night ... Using materials I had laying around
... Not one trip to the hardware! Awesome design and great plans. Now ...
How about a DIY festool domino?
Edward Norton: I have not one but 3 of the Rockwell blade runners and your going to be
hard pressed to build one that works as nice OR accurate.
Steve Ramsey: What my dad always called a "jig saw" we now call a scroll saw. And he what
I call a hand-held jigsaw, he always refers to as a "saber saw".
Lester Dela Cruz: You talk to much, I just want to see the thing
Stumpy Nubs: I thought of adding one, but ran out of time before filming. I may put one
Stumpy Nubs: I've seen some people mount a saber saw to a router plate and use it in the
router table. But this is the only one I know of that will allow for
tilting the blade, which is a big plus.
Donald Kosse: stumpy nubs you know i am a big beliver is the greats genius are guy'slike
you working at homes or there garage around the world think of new way's to
do thing i like your show and you acting is great
Rick McQuay: I remember seeing something like this in an old woodworking book and it's
been in the back of my mind since I have an old Sears jigsaw that I never
American Infidel: Lol great sense of humor, I was thinking about making a stand like this
today for my JIGsaw, the kind you hold lol. Great design
Dejan Jankovic: sranje neviđeno!
johhn hei: thank you
Stumpy Nubs: It was $200 at woodcraft when this video was made. And it may look better
to you, but mine didn't take "two days of my life" to build. I took a few
hours of very enjoyable shop time on a weekend- which is the point of the
craft, isn't it? Besides, the Rockwell has less capacity and doesn't cut at
angles like my homemade one does. But, to each his own. You like to spend
$150, I like to make stuff!
ardvarkkkkk1: There is an amazing difference between low end and high end jigsaws. The
low end ones shake badly.
Stumpy Nubs: Yah, I think the term "Jig Saw" was a term used more often years ago.
jmeyersiv: I've used a blade runner and thought the same as you... Except my
description of it was borderline useless. I have a friend who owns a
contracting business (i own a furniture business) and he HAD to show me
this new tool, and i told him i didnt think it did anything that i couldnt
do with a jig saw. But thats my opinion. Seems like more of a hobby tool
than a serious piece of equipment.
68jacen: Run out of wax? The friction, and stress in your voice this week was off
the chart.Get that ole block of wax out to smooth over all those tense
issues. Heck it may help with your carving duplicator. At the very least,
you can wax ole Levi up and leave him on the wrong side of town, won't be
just the pigs squeling. On a side note, festool just came out with their
version of the ultimate router table. I bet you could do more with a 100.00
budget than they have done with 1600.00 + thnx for vid
Stumpy Nubs: I try to make all my machines with easy to find and inexpensive parts so as
many people as possible can make them in their own shops. So while linear
bearings would be just the ticket, I am going a different direction. Wait
deezynar: On some things it's easier to let someone else make the decisions. I'll go
w/ you on this one.
gremlinsbreath: The rockwell does more, is built better, looks better and I didn't have to
waste two days of my life building it. By the way...the rockwell is not two
hundred. It's $149 at Lowes, Menards and Amazon.
jose Guerra: exelent idea
J McCracken: STUPID CANOOK ANYWAY.
Stumpy Nubs: I saw the Festool router table. Nice, but a bit pricey for me. I do have
plans for a sliding router table in the future, I am not going to say mine
will be as nice as theirs, but I think it will be nice enough for me!
Stumpy Nubs: or as overpriced...
Joseph Lorentzen: It figures you would have been one step ahead of me.
Edgardo Paredes Martinez: te pasa mucho tiempo hablando y cansas
sakda apiwat: cool but you talk too much
Stumpy Nubs: Yes, I will have the p;ans in the Stumpy Store in a few days. Thanks for
Stumpy Nubs: I thought about a zero clearance insert, but this is more of a rough cut
kind of tool, like all saber saws are. No doubt an insert would be helpful,
Stumpy Nubs: I thought about offsetting the guard to allow for ripping longer stock. But
I figure it isn't the best tool for ripping anyway. It will make a great
circle cutter or metal cutter or tile cutter. Lots of small jobs like that.
It was fast and cheap to make, so it's worth having around even for
HOOKEDONWOOD: Great build! Already got an idea for a zero clearence insert! Back to my
pile of scrap to look for "parts"
deezynar: So a saber saw turned up side down and put in a box becomes a jig saw. OK.
Stumpy Nubs: Thanks!
ojneb123: are you going to release plans for these? and if not, why do you hate me.
JK I've been looking for something like this and I built one but I'm having
trouble with the guide bearings, hope you could help me out. Thanks man!
Rick McQuay: Yours is a huge improvement. The one I saw was basically just screwed
upside down inside a box, no guides, no tilting. It was a book from the
70's with shop made machines.
Shulom Ben Ruban: In my parts we's call it a skil saw
Joseph Lorentzen: I can see it with a miter slot.
heretic30176: google > jig saw > the world speaks louder than you do.
joesjigs: Love the vids. Use linear bearings on the the duplicator (the ones with
small ball bearings inside a track) if you havent thought of that already .
I use them at work all the time . A little more money but worth. Just a
Stumpy Nubs: This type of saw is going to have more vibration that a band saw, for sure.
But it's not bad at all. The arm can be lowered to act as a hold-down, but
I don't even do that. A good quality blade also makes a big difference. I
Boudico: Stumpy is the woodworking equivalent of Red Green. You watch, have a laugh
and learn something if you are so inclined. Otherwise, there are plenty of
other channels out there that will bore you to death.
Datty77: Video starts at 6:55
Stumpy Nubs: It does in my workshop. But you can call it whatever you like :)
