With a bow handle grip, the CARVEX PSB 420 has a new guide system and is more powerful motor than its predecessor the PS400 model. The blade is 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 on/off switching can be worked via the handle 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 is supplied with 2 saw blades, splinter guard, base runner for delicate surfaces LAS-STF and Systainer T-LOC SYS 1 storage case.

festool carvex 420wow a £250 jigsaw that won't cut square , i just bought this as I like festool tools and have had no issues with all my other tools but this jigsaw is hopeless , I got it to replace my ancient bosch 620 from the 80s which has always cut dead square in any material with any old blade so I was expecting the festool to at least be comparable, like I said at the beginning wow this thing will not cut square with any festool blade or bosch blade in any thickness timber at any speed , iv just spend 4hrs trying because I can't belive it , cut a piece 18mm ply with old bosch perfect cut , carvex wanders off the line and will not cut square ! to cap it all in the end one of the tungsten blade guide clamps has fallen off ! I looks like it was just glued in place ! obviously I will be sending this piece of crap back ASAP will probably get a

An excellent machineI am a big fan of Festool so when my professional type jigsaw gave up the ghost after many years I bought the new Festool model. I opted for the 220V version as in my experience batteries do NOT last for ever in hand held tools, while the 220V power lead does not really get in the way.
