Adjustable Base Plate
A jigsaw's adjustable base plate allows the operator to make bevel cuts up to
90 degrees - essential for mitre cuts.
A dust bag collects sawdust and prevents it from obscuring the cut line,
as well as maintaining a cleaner, more pleasant working environment.
This creates a laser line from the jigsaw along the material to provide a guide
for cutting a straight line.
