Straight line or orbital cutting action
Conventional jig saws cut with
a
straight
line action, that is, the blade moves only
up and down in a straight line. Your saw
also cuts in this manner but, for softer
workpieces, an orbital cutting action can be
selected. Soft workpieces like wood and
plastic permit deep penetration of indivi-
dual saw teeth. The orbital action thrusts
the blade forward on the cutting stroke
and greatly increases cutting speed over
conventional jig saws. Harder workpieces
like metal should be cut using the straight
line cutting action
or a
very low orbital
setting. To select straight line or orbital
cutting, adjust the number on the saw.
