Hi all, I am currently looking to buy a new jigsaw as my old Bosch is just about done. It will mainly be used for cutting laminated panels to a scribe line when fitting home offices and fitted bedroom furniture. Accuracy is very important to me. For a lot of my work I use down-cutting blades, how does the P1cc cope with this? I did read somewhere online that it wasn't something it excelled at due to its barrel grip but I suspect in real life it will be fine. Anyone used it with downcutters, how does it perform? I was also considering the Festool Carvex 420 but that seems to have very mixed reviews with regards adjustment of blades and straight cuts. Thanks.
Tbh I haven't used and down cut blade in mine yet, but I don'tyou see how it would affect performance. I prefer barrel grip jigsaws and always choose them over d handles. Just what I'm used to I suppose.

I've had no problems using down cutting blades , Bosch T101BR , in the P1cc. I do the same type of work as you and they work a treat. I tend to use the angled base and set it to 30 degrees and then cut to the scribe line , then if the filler needs to have a bit more scribing off I just use a plane to adjust the line. I tried the cordless Festool carvex 420 and sent it back.
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.
