    This is a device that I found on YouTube NOT mine. When I saw it, I knew that it was something that sling makers could use. I think that it will make the use of coping saws a lot easier. It is cheap to make and works well.

    That' s great!!! I will try to use that kind of table and fix my jigsaw to it upside down. Do you think it will work???
    Thanks for sharing.
     
  6. I think it will work!

    But the table must be heavy!

    There are many vibrations!

    You will make it!

    Actually I have a small table in my shop where I have done just that.
    Take the plate off of the saw and measure the bottom of it. put the shoe back on the saw Mark out a smaller pattern on the table and cut it out. Take the shoe back off and fit the saw into the hole from the bottom. You should be able to screw the shoe back on. This should be fairly tight already, but I recommend butting two thin pieces of wood to each side and counter sinking the screws to make a flat feeding surface. because of the way I set mine, I had to insert the blade backwards. I'll lock the trigger on and use a foot control to run it This is the safest way to do what looks like a daft thing. Always be sure to wear your eyes and ears
