    Simple jigsaw table

    Im working on a small room, so i need to save space when its possible.

    I made a jigsaw table from a foldable workbench and a metal sheet.

    I can quickly remove the jigsaw from the table and then use it as a workbench.

    Idea can be seen from this 3min video.



    I also made a prototype from the blade guide from scrap i had. My intention was to make neater one someday..
    But this one has worked so well that i haven't bother to do it, maybe later.

    Mostly i use it to cut alumine, it handles 5mm sheets easily.

    It can be seen on this video:

    Yeah. Sometimes simpliest solutions are hardest to find. ☺

    Excellent idea. Now I know what to do with that seldom used workmate that takes up needed space. Thanks

    Tuomas, thanks for sharing. I've got exactly the same workbench and just as a limited room. On top of that I can access my brother in law's workshop, which is equipped also with a professional sheet metal bending device. What's more, they regard the metal sheets of the size I've seen in your video as "scrap" (one man's trash is another man's treasure). I think I'll adopt your homemade tools philosophy.
