In Detail

Festool 3 Year Warranty (Registration Required)

The newest jigsaw in the Festool range is the CARVEX PS 420 with a new blade guide system and more powerful motor than the PS400 model. The blade can be guided in three ways with a new lower guide that can be adjusted to 'kiss' the blade. A powerful hammer guide contained within the body of the machine ensures accuracy. Combined with a choice of four pendulum stroke actions and speed selection, you can be assured of a smooth, precise cutting action, designed to work hard in a range of materials with the right choice of blade. The powerful cutting stroke is driven from the Festool EC-TEC brushless motor, it is compact in design and one of the lightest on the market at only 1.9kg. An adjustable strobe light is also a great feature. Effective dust extraction draws dust away from the cutline via connection to a dust extractor from the outlet in the base. The Festool unique plug-it cable can be turned upwards in more confined spaces and is easily unplugged for tool change or storage. The body grip design on/off switching can be worked from either side of the body for dual use. Supplied with a standard removable base that can be replaced with a choice of either a tilting 0- 45° angled base or a base adaptor that allows you to connect guide rails or circular guide; a quick lock ensures no tools are required for base or blade changing. Angle base and adaptor bases are optional accessories.

This ‘Plus’ version supplied with 2 saw blades, splinter guard, base runner for delicate surfaces LAS-STF and Systainer T-LOC SYS 1 storage case.

Where do I start. I fit top end kitchens for a living and have had my eye on one of these for scribing-in end panels. Very disappointed to say the least. You have to take the base plate off each time you change to a different thickness blade, to get to the screw, the chip guard moves with the vibration so not doing its job. The strobe lights are useless outside as you can't see them, and when you can see them its pointless, a gimmick!! A very fussy tool, I want to pick it up and use it, not mess about for a couple of minutes to make sure everything is alright. As for using it, it's nothing to write home about, nothing special at all. I own the Festool plunge saw which I can not fault. Ill stick with my trusty 20 year old Milwaukee. Refunded no problem. You live and learn.

Theres better saws

Ill make it simple. Excellent accessories, poor saw. Mine has been for repair twice due to excessive vibration and unable to remove blade. Stay away! its a bum note from festool get the mafell p1 instead its 10 times better. Even a makita its better than the carvex.

Two handed jigsaw

Because of the stupid placement pf the on/off switches it requirees me to use two hands to turn it on and off, and I dont have small hands.
The adjustment for the blade guides is clumsy and requires the use of an allan key. Not a patch on the Bosch system. However I do have both the Bosch and the Festool jigsaws and use the Festool in preference. It appears to give a cleaner cut.

Gave Up and Used my Makita DJV181

Thought I'd treat myself to another Festool (love the Domino and Rotex sander) alas I was very disappointed. Lots of dust to obscure the cutting line, even with the strobe LED and extraction in place. Not a bad straight cut (if I could see where it was going) but the guide system trashed the back of the saw blades meaning that Bosch blades were useless after just the one cut out. Ended up using my makiyta circular saw in plunge mode and finished off with my mates 18v cordless DJV181.

When tried this jigsaw I thought power and cutting square ,with the correct blades, would be a given. I was wrong I would expect similar even better performance from jigsaws in the lower price range. After continued attempts the blade always cut out of square on 35mm timber.
The reason I'm giving this 1 star is once you buy the accessorie kit it's the £50 cheaper than the Mafell p1cc with the accessories included and if you're lucky even a guide rail. The Mafell always cuts square has more power and is revolutionary, it has no guide rollers or clamping mechanism, so it doesn't heat the blade by rubbing against them and weakening the blade, it has a host of other real features not gimmicks.
Festool ought to be ashamed to have their price anywhere near the Mafell. If your thinking of purchasing this please just do a YouTube search for the Mafell P1CC.
