Dozens of situations in the workshop call for a few strokes of a jigsaw. Finishing a stopped circular saw cut, flush cutting a dowel or tenon, finishing a birdsmouth cut on a rafter seat, or squaring out drilled corners on a boxed opening, just to name a few. Instead of dragging out your jigsaw for a 10-second job, here’s an incredibly simple solution you can keep in your tool belt or shop apron all the time for those situations, the Blue Spruce Jigsaw Blade Handle.
Just open the collet and slip in almost any brand or style of jigsaw blade…T-Shank, U-Shank or Universal Shank, they all fit. Tighten the collet just like you would on a precision hobby knife and you’re ready to go. The variety of blades available for jigsaws makes the Blue Spruce Jigsaw Blade Handle extremely versatile. Need to finish off a curved cut? Pop in a tiny scrolling blade. Finishing a rafter seat? Mount a longer general-purpose blade. Flush cutting a dowel? Put in a fine-cutting blade and get to it.
Perhaps the most poorly named tool in the box is a “keyhole saw”. The huge taper on most of the blades prevents any sort of curve cutting or close quarters work. But with the Jigsaw Blade Handle you can work with tiny blades to finish curved cuts and small openings…in any material you can cut with a powered jigsaw.
As you expect from Blue Spruce, in addition to being useful, this tool is stunningly beautiful and meticulously engineered. You have your choice of African Blackwood, Cocobolo or infused Figured Maple for the handle. The collet closing collar is available in stainless steel or black finished stainless steel. To get you going, we’re including a pack of 5 blades from Starrett, but don’t forget, almost any brand or style of jigsaw blade will fit the Jigsaw Blade Handle.
