Precise Cutting Of Material

This article  shows how to achieve good results for cutting boards with inexpensive tools.

Inspired by the article about building enclosures here come the steps how to cut wood or aluminum boards with a jigsaw. With this method the cut will be very strait, so you only need to smooth it with a file for finishing.

  • Mark the edge for the cut,
  • Measure the distance between jigsaw blade and the edge of the base plate of the jigsaw
  • fixate a stopper (strait piece of wood or aluminum profile) with screw clamps exactly at this distance from the edge of the cut
  • let the jigsaw be guided by the stopper

Here a scetch of this:

  1. Ziemlich alter Trick. Allerdings erfordert er eine Stichsäge, bei der das Sägeblatt absolut paralell zum Anschlag eingespannt ist. Billige Stichsägen vom Discounter kriegen das in den meisten Fällen nicht hin und “verläuft” das Sägeblatt und der Schnitt ist für die Katz.
