From the Manufacturer
Black & Decker’s Smart Select JS660 jigsaw takes the guesswork out of making the right jigsaw cut. With the new Smart Select cut feature you set the jigsaw for optimal cutting. A range of visual application icons illustrates where to set the jigsaw for curved, straight, or beveled cuts in wood, plastic, or metal. Each icon indicates a speed setting on the variable speed dial which when set, provides the best cutting performance and finish for the application. The separate variable speed dial also offers individual speed control for custom applications. An easy to set accu-bevel with vision window allows you to set the jigsaw at 0, 15, 30, 45 degrees, or left or right quickly and precisely for the most accurate beveled cuts. The jigsaw’s quick clamp tool free blade change offers easy blade changes for both U-shank and T-shank blades. Blades are quickly and easily inserted or removed from the saw with a spring-activated lever--no screwdriver or Allen wrenches required. This powerful 5 amp jigsaw provides 0-3200 strokes per minute. It also features a dust blower and extraction tube, a tool-free beveling shoe, and on-board blade storage. With Smart Select, you set it and forget it. Both experienced and beginning do-it-yourselfers will appreciate knowing and learning the best performance setting for their projects. With easy-to-read application icons, it helps eliminate the trial and error of cutting and ruining your material.
