What are the benefits of the jigsaw?

This model also has the orbital action feature that allows 11 movements and with that, it is possible to make cuts vertically, up and down, in addition to cuts horizontally, forwards and backward. With this model, it is possible to make angular cuts, in addition to straight cuts and this jigsaw model SS7010 from Starrett has control of strokes per minute, being possible to control the pressure on the Switch Trigger, causing the strokes to vary proportionally to the touch .

Among the main advantages of this Tico-Tico saw from Starrett, we want to highlight the operation with the battery, and although many people still have resistance with battery tools, they are very advantageous! With battery-powered tools, you can perform work anywhere that there is no PowerPoint nearby and as it has the LED system to illuminate the place where the service is being done, this tool can be used even in places with low light intensity.

To close the benefits of this tool, we have to mention the possibility of using the battery of any other Starrett tool, since the company created a unique model for the tools, that is, if you have any other tool with the Starrett battery, the batteries can be used in both tools.

What are the disadvantages of jigsaw?

The main and perhaps only disadvantage of this equipment is the possibility of this battery being discharged when you need to use it, but for this to happen, the error is from the user who did not keep it charged after the previous use. And as already said, if you have another Starrett tool, the chances of running out of battery are very small, unless you leave both discharged!

As we said at the beginning of the article, there are good tools for cutting and Starrett always offers excellent products. In this video to follow from the Mundo da Elétrica channel, you can get to know other cutting tools and see a practical test with each one, it’s worth checking out!
