What is required to ensure

  • cutting line - smooth, without any distortion.
  • edges of the boards - not deformed.
  • Possibility of cutting a large amount of material without compromising performance.

Once it comes to the home, it does not make sense to deal with a specific machine equipment.As a general rule, anything that can be the host - only hand tools.


That it will provide the best results.The cost of the simplest items (a professional model for home purchase does not make sense - about the choice of the jigsaw here) - 1 600 rubles (350 W).

Saw hacksaw

This tool is designed to work with wood, definitely not suitable.Samu board with it is easy to cut, but that's what will happen to its protective coating?It is a thin film.If we compare this parameter with the dimensions of the saw teeth, then there is nothing to comment on.It is clear that there will be not only the fringe, but chipped.

  • Pros - it is in every house.And if not, then the price of the product within a 450 - 500 rubles by the standards of today simply miserable.Where to buy - is not a problem.
