There wasn’t much doubt after the test that the Task Force Jigsaw could make it through just about any type of wood. We even doubled up a piece up scrap or two and plowed through 2” oak. It’s a real tool capable of doing real work. In the hands of an experienced user it’ll get the job done.
The Task Force is a bit of a brute, though, and not in a good way. The vibration we felt during the cutting process is harsh on the fingers, wrist, and arm and the tool’s bottom-heavy construction makes controlling it more difficult than some of the higher end models from other manufactures.
Is it world class? Hell, no. That said, if you were strapped for dough and wanted to make a go of it with a jigsaw, the Task Force works. It’s a real, no-kidding, functional jig saw for under $20. Go slow and perhaps don a pair of padded gloves and you’re set.
