How to Cut Curve with Jigsaw?

A jigsaw is a perfect tool as your liked tool that cuts curve cuts or circular cuts. Several saws are used to cut curves as a scroll saw, reciprocating saw, coping saw, band saw, and so on, but the jigsaw is the best of them. Now we will follow the instructions step by step, so let’s do that:

Choosing Workpiece

At the outset, elect the workpiece on whether you want to do curved cuts or want to experiment. If it is poly-board, metal, or wood that can be hard or soft, there is a matter of choosing stuff type because of your object’s thickness or hardest. Somewhat wooden objects are, and some are stiff, so you have to make a plan that needs your purpose.

Which Blade Should Choose?

Now come to blade type because it is essential to curved cuts with a jigsaw. There are two kinds of blades to use in the jigsaw: the U-shank jigsaw blade and the T-shank jigsaw blade. Working with both types of jigsaw blades can be done, but if you ask me which is my favorite, my opinion is throwing all blades off without T-shank; it can deliver maximum performance.

Some blades in the T-shank blade category hamper work; they are not better to cut. To cut curve shape always will choose thin and flexible blade otherwise will not be able to turn the blade along with the mark. So be careful to pick the right blade.

Stuff Locking Step

It is the step to lock the object with the table. It would help if you used a clamp to clamp the workpiece securely. When you play this jigsaw tool on the board, doesn’t it move? If the cuts are needed inside, you must drill inside the mark to insert a jigsaw blade through the hole to smooth blemishes.

Doing the Main Task

Finally, we are on the final part to cut a curve, Now place the jigsaw tool on the board (that you want to cut) and insert the blade through the stuff’s hole. It is time to run the machine. Just turn on the power switch.

Gripe the jigsaw’s handle softly and give a slight push forward.


Keep in mind that if you hold the handle firmly, then there is a possibility of damaging your cuts, so clutch it softly. Now go forward along with marked line slowly, but if you are a beginner user. If it is an intricate shape that is difficult to follow strictly, be calm, grow the machine, speed up, and gradually move it in cold blood.

If it gets destroyed, there is nothing to be anxious about. Try it again, in this step; you can rotate the object keeping the machine fixed, then you don’t need to lock the stuff. Release the workpiece from the leash. There is one thing to follow in this process. Because of that, it is difficult for a beginner, so if you feel it is a hard drawback, the process. I think the first method is excellent to implement.
