Cordless or Corded, Festool has always been know for making the best jigsaws on the market. The mark of a great jigsaw being the ability to cut square and smooth, even on very thick, hard materials, and do it as you are going round the curve. It's all about having a strong and precise blade guide.

There are two models of Carvex to choose from, barrel grip and "D" handled, each available in corded and cordless versions. The cordless and corded versions are identical in power and features. In use the cordless version doesn't have any drag from the cord, but weighs several points more because of the battery pack on the end.

Having mastered the art of making a great jigsaw years ago the question for Festool was how to go forward. These Carvex Jigsaws raise the bar on what one expects from a jigsaw. The motor technology reflects the latest ideas in making a small narrow brushless motor that is easy to grip, light in weight, and will not require replacement brushes. The front dust shield and guard is permanently installed and ready for business when you need it, but easily slides out of the way when you don't. The cord socket can pivot up and down for better ease of use. You install the blade by just sticking it into the holder, and a one-touch blade ejector spits out the blade hands free. Above the blade are a bank of LED lights so that you can really see what you are doing. The lights strobe with the speed of the saw so that the blade appears stationary and you can easily see where you are actually cutting. As always dust collection is through a detachable nozzle on the rear of the base. There is now an electronic switch on each side of the unit so you don't have to reach around. Also new for Festool is in addition of six speed settings, including an "A" automatic speed setting which will automatically adjusts the speed of the jigsaw based on motor load.

BUT, the most noticeable innovation in the Carvex line is none of the features we just mentioned. It's the detachable base. The main unit comes with a flat base that does not tilt. With one lever stroke you can detach the base and get access to the blade unit to adjust the guides for the exact thickness of the blade you are using. The base is interchangeable with a large selection of specialty bases for all sorts of operations. In addition there are bases with different bottom surfaces for optimum cutting on nearly any material. There are four versions of this saw: Cordless and Corded, each available in either a barrel grip or a "D" grip.
The two models of jigsaw are the same except for the grip. Most people like the body grip because the hand is closer to the work and the whole tool has a lower center of gravity. Personally, I have small hands and I feel more secure with my hand on a smaller, "D" handle.

Both tools have a carbide tipped jaws with a three-way blade guide and support for straight cuts, a splinter guard and either straight running and three orbital motion settings.
