Jigsaw Mounting Foot
This low price point, high volume jigsaw features an adjustable foot that attaches without fasteners. The design provides for - and ensures - safe, secure attachment at 3 different cutting angles (0°, -45°, and 45°). U.S. Patent No. 2002/0095798 A1.
The shroud of the patented blade retention mechanism also serves as the user interface for blade replacement. The production design features tapered ribs that are comfortable, easy-to-use, and easy-to-mold - the result of clever engineering and skilled part modeling - backed by a thorough understanding of injection molding.
