The new Festool Carvex 420 Jigsaw - the best jigsaw technology available
Chris   August 01, 2013   2   0  
The Festool Carvex Jigsaw was first introduced to North America back in March of 2011. It had a ton of really nice features, but the feature that caught my attention was the LED strobe light that could visually freeze the movement of the jigsaw blade. Sadly, about a month after it was announced, Festool pulled the Carvex and sent out a letter stating "...Late round testing in certain applications specific to North America has demonstrated that the current design does not meet the exacting standards that we demand of ourselves, and that our customers have come to expect..." ...

You have to hand to those German engineers over at Festool, they have added one of the coolest features ever to their new jigsaws coming out in June. The new Festool Carvex jigsaws use the power of stroboscopic lights to visually freeze the movement of the blade to make seeing where you are cutting super easy. Normally you would have to start cutting to see where the front of the blade is, and this can cause issues when you need accuracy. If freezing time wasn't cool enough, Festool also brings a tool-less interchangeable base...
