Overview

Editor's Review: A Better Breed of Jigsaws

review date: September 1, 2006

The Freud FJ85 wasn't up to par with the other saws tested. It won't accept some thicker, heavy-duty blades, and the cutline becomes covered with sawdust when the removable no-mar plate is used. The sliding dust guard is a nice feature because there isn't any chance of losing it.
