I'm after a new jigsaw, only used occasionally and for mdf/ply max 18mm deep.Don't need any flash extras such as laser or pendulum.
I've been looking at the Bosch pst700, but has anyone else got any suggestions, max price of £50.
Cheers.

 Post subject: Not so much tools. Goggles
PostPosted: Sat Nov 19, 2011 8:02 pm 
I have been working with MDF. Sanding, cutting items to sell at craft fares. Bought a cheap pair of goggles out of Band Poo. Rubbish steams up and ended up having stinging eyes for 4 days.

What decent pair of goggles do people recommend for MDF. I have been looking at these.

PostPosted: Thu Nov 17, 2011 1:44 pm
