An Overview On Jigsaws

DYWM Fun Fact

The jigsaw is super-useful, but if it wasn’t for another gadget, the sewing machine, it might never even exist. Back in 1946, Albert Kauffman worked for Scintilla AG, a Swiss power tool manufacturer. Observing the way his wife’s sewing machine worked inspired him to create the jigsaw. His prototype, the Letso Jigsaw, was both safer and easier to handle than the standard circular saw, and soon came to replace it.
