The lithium ion batteries maintain a charge for up to 18 months, so tools are always ready.

This PCC660B jigsaw offers three orbital settings, a variable speed trigger that goes from 0-2,500 strokes-per-minute, and a 3/4" stroke length for precise, clean, and accurate cuts.

The jigsaw features a dust blower that clears debris for  visibility while cutting, and a tool-free blade release for quick blade changes. The beveling shoe provides straight and up to 45 degree bevel cuts. A contoured over molded handle offers gripping comfort. The Jigsaw is used for straight and scroll cuts, for sink cutouts, and making bevel cuts in wood. Sold with one 4-inch wood blade, it retails $59.97 (batteries and charger sold separately.)
