Festool 561593 CARVEX 420 Barrel Grip Jigsaw
The new Festool PS 420 Carvex Jigsaw is unlike any other jigsaw you've ever seen.
Carbide jaws, in conjunction with the jigsaw's transmission, create perfectly perpendicular cuts in material up to 4-3/4" thick thanks to multiple engagement points around the blade to prevent deflection. Snap on and off bases allow for extreme flexibility. The Carvex Jigsaw can be adapted for any task from hard lumber, plywood to scribing - coping, plastic as well as metal. Scribe any line with perfection thanks to stroboscopic LEDs that make the blade appear to stand still allowing you excellent clarity while cutting.
Variable Speed Control Dial: Like nearly all Festool power tools, the Carvex offers variable speed control. Reduce the speed when cutting to a line to provide better control and precision. The speed control can also be used to optimize cut quality in a variety of materials.
Stroke Adjustment: The stroke adjustment knob lets you select how aggressive you would like the Carvex to cut. Select from four modes ranging from fine to aggressive. At a whopping maximum 3,800 stroke per minute, the Carvex can plow through material quickly.
Stroboscopic LED Lights: Four high-intensity white LEDs surround the blade on every side to reduce shadows that may interfere with your cut line. At speed, the LEDs synchronize to the speed of the blade causing it to appear to stop moving improving your ability to follow your cut line. Another innovative, patented feature only available on Festool Carvex jigsaws.
Adjustable Chip Guard: The chip guard can be adjusted vertically to provide optimal visibility while retaining excellent dust extraction. The chip guard can also be completely removed. The integrated blower moves dust away from the cut line when dust extraction is not being used.
FastFix Blade Chuck: The Carvex features a new patented tool-free blade chuck. Simply insert the blade in the 11 o'clock position and give it a twist to lock it into the chuck. Use the release trigger on the side of the jigsaw to eject the blade. No more grabbing a hot blade to remove it. Now, that's smart!
Triple Blade Guidance: Festool jigsaws utilize carbide guides to virtually eliminate blade deflection, even when cutting in materials as thick as 4-3/4 inches. That means you can cut with the confidence of knowing your end results will be perfectly perpendicular. A clear replaceable plastic splinterguard prevents chipping.
Interchangeable Base System: Flip the base release lever to swap between a collection of task-specific bases available for the Carvex jigsaws. The tool-free operate let's you change bases in seconds. The amazing angle base is adjustable +/- 45 for inside and outside corners. Choose from a variety of bases to match your application.
Brushless Motor: Brushless motors offer significant advantages over motors with brushes, including higher efficiency and reliability, reduced noise, and longer service life to name a few. This helps Carvex jigsaws outperform other jigsaws, especially cordless models, that would otherwise be in the same class. Brushless motors are as much as 39% more powerful than an equivalent brushed motor and extend battery life.
