Being fond of sawing, I bought a jigsaw EL-2У4, and with it acquired a lot of troubles. The fact that the standard button number 1 doesn’t work: “picks” in hand, breaking. I had to experiment. Results and want to share with readers. I began to make saws to jigsaws, which allow you to change direction without special turns of the fabric, have sufficient rigidity and durability. The most suitable material for this was steel wire Ø 1,5 mm. From the bore are cut off two of the rod and in accordance with figure ka size. On the opposite ends of the blanks with a file, grind off the pad, it is soldered canvas regular nail file. The process is time-consuming, but cost-effective: the puff will work reliably and will last 3 to 4 times longer than usual.
