One of the capabilities missing in mywoodworking shop was that of a high quality jigsaw. The fine linesand controlled cuts a jigsaw can produce are immensely useful.Unfortunately jigsaws are also notorious for producing roughsurfaces and plenty of tear out. Only the best jigsaws are goodenough for fine woodworking.

I chose to audition one of the best, the Festool PS 300 EQ, inmy shop. This saw is supposed to be perfect for furniture building.Let's take a look at what the PS 300 EQ brings to the table.

"Drill/driver OK, reciprocating and circular saws are junk. No torque, circular saw won't cut thru a 2x4, reciprocating won't cut a 4x4 without bogging."
"Indeed, this one is the best 12V driver. Get it. You will not be disappointed."
"I use this one for heavy work. It can do it all. None better."
"Love this Router"
"Great driver with only minor issues. App is limited. The last gen is almost as good, yet a lot cheaper."
"This saw replaced a Delta Unisaw in my shop. It's rock solid, powerful, and well made. Fence rivals Biesemeyer or Unifence. Worth the price, IMHO."
"Excellent performance but tough to use at high speed with soft wood, tends to drive too deep before impact kicks in."
"This is my only true drill. The key-less chuck works flawlessly as does the power/speed switch which is handy for drilling various density material."
"A quality sander that performs well day in and day out. Not the best dust bag, that's minor for me. Fits well in my hand and no fatigue with prolonged use."
"A good option for those looking for their first saw, or those looking to upgrade from a "portable" job site saw. Buy a decent blade and you'll be happy."
