Here's a request, user videos of the Picc in action. I wanna see thick timbers cut on a curve such as for a corbel, I wanna see blade visibility, dust clearing without extraction, use from under the material, how well can you track a line? it's pendulum functions, I want to hear what you love and what you think could be better. In this post I will compare it to my festool Trion, IMO a very good jigsaw but I do have a few gripes with it.
By all means if you have another saw you're happy with gimme the low down on that as well. This is an unbiased forum and we aren't snobs or influenced by any company mafell or otherwise. So lets have a good honest jigsaw shootout!

Will try to do a video sometime. Just need to get some new blades. What thickness timber u want to see being cut. Cunex1 blades cut upto 65 if I remember right u can get the blades that cut upto 115. Also I see bosch in America does a blade that cuts 10" that would be interesting has any one used them I haven't seen them here
I would like to see a cut in 2" lumber. The type of cut that would be used as a decorative end for a pergola. Can anyone describe the steps to upload a video to this forum. I am good with power tools but not computers.
I would personally appreciate it. Good chance the results of your video would be the information I need to pull the trigger on one. Im more conscious of recurring costs like blades than a large one time expense like the jigsaw. If the cuts are a lot better with the standard blades than I get with my two Bosch saws I will likely buy one.
I agree with both of you that tools pay for themselves. Question: Do the W1 Cunex blades last longer than regular jigsaw blades or just cut straighter? I am used to Jigsaw blades being quite disposable because they burn and dull so fast sort of like sawzall blades.

Most of the time I use an ordinary blade like if cutting out a hob or sink a worktop then use the w1 blade if I require the accuracy or doing curved work with a tight curve. The w2 blade also cut 90 but are cheaper just won't turn as sharp also festool do a blade special for cutting at 90 which isn't to bad on price. What are you wanting to cut
The only difficult cuts would be for pergolas. I will likely be doing a radius on a deck soon and may need to radius the top and bottom pieces for the rail too. everything else I use a jigsaw for any brand is good enough for. I am wondering if the mafell could be used for the pergolas in the same way as a portable band saw as long as the timbers were smaller than 3 or 4 inches thick.
all: Thanks to all for supporting me. I want to learn or know. That's why I have come in here.

bengt: Oh please the ks60 is better in every way. 60 degree miter in both directions. Bevels past 45(essential in a saw that must cut on the flat) Bigger blade more capacity. The Metabo hpt has 57 degree miter max and 45 bevel max.

abdon: I stand corrected , the angle fence is only attaches with F -Tracks , what confused me was , that the Timberwolf site mentioned it will work with the NFU machine, yes it will work but only I guess when you use the Ftrack , with other tracks Like the KSS L.
