Orbital Jig Saw
The Orbital Jig Saw uses a reciprocating or elliptical motion to saw through material depending on the use. It can be used to make straight or curved cuts. In the Maker Lab we have two Craftsman Orbital Jig Saws.
Training Required: Basic Training and Power Tool Training
Materials: Variety of materials- wood, plastic, thin sheet metal, etc. depending on the blade used
Material Fees: We have limited material available in the scrap bin. You can bring your own materials.
Common Terminology: Orbital Motion - The blade cuts in an orbital motion for faster, more efficient cutting. The higher setting is used for faster cutting in soft material. The lower setting is used when cutting materials with more resistance.
