AKTUS Jigsaw / Jigsaw

AKTUS Jigsaw
AKTUS Jigsaw

The main problems of operating jigsaw are defined as bad working visibility and instability caused by over-vibration, according to my observation and interviews.

A new way of operating jigsaw is defined by ATKTUS:
The handle control optimizes the accuracy and stability of jigsaw working. The armrest absorbs the vibration. At the same time, traditional barrel grip is also supported for detailed cutting curves.

AKTUS also shows an natural and easy way to solve the annoying tool placing, by just resting the tool on its bottom. The front dusting system blows away sawdust for better visibility, and cools down the overheated saw blade.
