Cool Tool Review: Dewalt 20V MAX Cordless Barrel Jigsaw

October 26, 20233 min read

Hey everyone, it's TJ from Sanctified Homes. Today, I'm diving deep into a tool that's been a game-changer for our finish carpentry projects: the Dewalt 20V MAX Cordless Barrel Jigsaw. But what makes this jigsaw even more special is the addition of the Collins Tool Company Coping Foot. Let's get into the nitty-gritty of why this combination is a must-have for every craftsman out there.

Overview: Elevating Finish Carpentry

The Dewalt Barrel grip jigsaw isn't just another tool in your arsenal; it's a precision instrument designed for those intricate finish carpentry tasks. When I first got my hands on this jigsaw, I was impressed by its design and functionality. But the real magic began when we added the coping foot to it. 

For those of you involved in finish carpentry, you'd know the challenges of coping by hand or using sanders. This jigsaw, combined with the coping foot, simplifies the process, covering a majority of the tasks we'd typically use it for.

Key Features: Precision Meets Efficiency

The Dewalt 20V MAX Jig Saw stands out with its user-friendly design. Changing out blades is a breeze, thanks to the lever mechanism. Within seconds, you can switch between blades, ensuring minimal downtime during projects. The speed dial is another feature that caught my attention. Depending on the intricacy of your work, you can adjust the speed to prevent the wood from splintering, ensuring a clean cut every time. Get the Dewalt 20V MAX Jig Saw here.

The Collins Tool Company Coping Foot, on the other hand, transforms the jigsaw into a coping powerhouse. By replacing the pad that comes with the jigsaw with this coping foot, you can achieve angled cuts from the bottom, allowing for curves and intricate designs. And while the right blade is crucial for optimal results, with the correct fine-tooth blade, this combination becomes an indispensable tool for finish carpentry.

My Experience: A Time-Saver in Disguise

Having used this combination on several projects, I can confidently say it's a time-saver. On one particular project, a house that wasn't particularly large, I saved over three hours using this jigsaw with the coping foot. The ability to make precise cuts, especially when installing custom trim and baseboard, is unparalleled. While there are other jigsaws in the market, and some might even be compatible with the coping foot, the Dewalt Barrel jigsaw has been our go-to, and I can't recommend it enough.

Final Thoughts: A Must-Have for Every Craftsman

In conclusion, the Dewalt 20V MAX Cordless Barrel Jigsaw, especially when paired with the Collins Tool Company Coping Foot, is a game-changer. It offers a blend of precision, efficiency, and versatility, making it a must-have for every craftsman out there.
