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.)
