Mini Hand Jigsaws and more
I am asked quite frequently about tools that I use. With the Christmas season coming upon us I thought I might help Santa out and share some tools I have used through out my 15 years as well as new tools I have discovered.
After using the Micro-mark mini hand jigsaw for 7 years, I have had the wonderful opportunity to try out a new jigsaw. the Minicraft MB5481. I am going to give you my honest opinion about both of them. First though I must qualify my statements by saying I never had the Gourd cross saw from micro mark but have the little mini hand jigsaw from Micro Mark. I cut the flap off so I could see as I cut, they then came out with the Gourd Cross. I will put the link up for Micro Mark but not the tool itself due to them changing the link on me several times. So here is the Link to Micro-Mark and you can look up gourd cross saw if you are interested. http://www.micromark.com/
The website for the Minicraft is http://www.minicrafttools.com/ and the link to the tool is http://www.minicrafttools.com/kits.html the cost for the kit is $99.95 and this includes the saw, transformer, extra blades all in a case. You can get all the information you need from that link.
On the next few pages you will see me using each tool and I will give you my feelings about them both.
