Body-grip jigsaws can cut the same range of materials as a top handle jigsaw, but some individuals may find that the body-grip jigsaw offers better control in terms of cutting. This type of jigsaw is also good at cutting in tight spaces, and cutting at unconventional angles, such as upside down. Individuals with smaller hands may find the alternative top-handle jigsaw more comfortable to use.

  • The key differences between jigaws is whether to select the top handle or body grip and whether you need a jigsaw specifically designed for metalworking. The body grip shape jigsaw is often used by sheet metal workers.
  • Choosing your power source: The first choice is between a mains (110v or 240v) or a cordless tool. 240v tools are used with normal mains power whilst 110v tools are used on construction sites for safety reasons.
  • With regards to cordless (battery powered) tools there are a variety of chemical types; Li-ion is the latest technology, prior to that it was Ni-MH and Ni-Cad was the original. The higher the Ah (Ampere hours) the longer the interval between charges; the fewer times you recharge a battery the longer it will last. Some cordless tools can also come without batteries - sometimes referred to as naked, bare units or body only. These tools are supplied without a battery or charger and more often than not without any accessories; as a result they are significantly cheaper in price.
  • The other key consideration is the depth of cut into the material required. Most professional jigaws have a variable speed function.
