If you’re a part-time woodworker you probably don’t have dozens of spare jigsaw blades just sitting around. And staring at the selection of jigsaw blades wondering how many and which ones you’re gonna need for a project sucks. So for those of us who want everything “just to be sure” (to avoid the dreaded second trip), Skil offers their 13-piece U-shank multi-pack.
In the multi-pack, Skil thoughtfully stuffed two or three of each type of blade they make into a single package for the decision impaired (or the over-prepared). The pack contains a variety of blades: wood smooth cut, wood fine cut, multi-purpose wood, wood fast cut, metal fast cut, and two “The Ugly” blades for super fast rough cuts.
Each blade is clearly marked near the top to let you know what type it is, and there’s a chart on the back for the uninformed that covers the purposes best suited for each blade type.
For $8, why not have ’em all? Just remember this good rule of thumb: the bigger the teeth, the thicker the material it’s good for.
