Black + Decker 400 W Compact Jigsaw with Blade (KS501)
The Black + Decker KS501 400 W Compact Jigsaw is an ergonomically designed jigsaw suitable for light DIY applications. This versatile tool cuts through wood, steel and aluminium, making it suitable for home DIYers. Its compact, lightweight design makes it easy and comfortable to use and control.
The jigsaw has been ergonomically designed for ease of use and convenience, so that you save time and energy on your project. By condensing the size of the switch mechanism to sit flush within the handle, the overall size of the jigsaw is smaller and more compact than other jigsaws.
Its low profile also makes the jigsaw feel stable, along with the wide, sturdy shoe and balanced weight. Furthermore, at the light weight of just 1.3 kg, this jigsaw is easy to manage and manoeuvre. It is also fitted with an overmoulded, non-slip handle, which makes the jigsaw comfortable to use and offers added control.
This jigsaw is suitable for general wood cutting, curved cuts and bevelled cuts at 45 degrees. It can be used for light sheet metal and metal pipe cutting, as it will cut steel to a depth of 5 mm and aluminium to a depth of 10 mm. It is therefore, suitable for light decorative and hobby DIY tasks, such as making shelving, cutting wood flooring and general maintenance tasks.

- Weight: 1.3 kg

The cut quality is essential to achieving a successful end result, which is why the Black + Decker KS501 jigsaw is designed for better performance at all light DIY applications. The internal mechanism is counter-balanced to reduce vibration, which reduces fatigue during sustained work and gives you better control over the tool. Moreover, this reduced vibration allows you to achieve more precise, accurate cuts for a better finish.
The jigsaw also comes with two key features that facilitate accurate, precise cuts: the lock-on feature and dust blower. The lock-on feature removes the need to continuously hold the trigger switch to operate the tool, you simply ‘lock-on’ and go. This convenient addition to the tool makes prolonged cutting less tiring and more comfortable, which ultimately gives you a better finish.
The jigsaw is also designed to ensure that you can see your work clearly, as the integral dust blower feature keeps the line of cut clear, whilst the wire safety guard makes the blade clearly visible, unlike thicker guards. This enhanced clarity ensures the precision and accuracy of the cut.
