What You Need to Know about Oscillating Tool and a Jigsaw

There has always been a very big debate when it comes to this very necessary tool that is oscillating tool vs. jigsaw, which is better and what are some of the notable difference between the two? Despite the fact that all these saws cut with a back and forth motion, what is clear as the daylight is that Oscillating multi-tools is just another kind of saw that can be used for so many other functions that are cutting, scraping, sanding, polishing, grinding and some other times removal of grout without the need of changing the tool making a lot of work very easy in the long run.

What is an Oscillating tool?

As previously mentioned this tool is more than just the saw and they all have similar shapes. The tool is made of an elongated bullet of around ten to fifteen inches long that is the main house of the motor used to operate the tool. When you look at the tool very keenly it resembles a letter L or number seven shapes. What might differ with these tools is the main body as they all depend on the manufacturer's design?

One of the notable features about these tools is that they have the capability of oscillating upwards for about 21,000 oscillations per minute with a small angle of oscillation. The angle is very necessary because it gives one a feel of the vibration rather than sawing.

What is a jigsaw?

It is a small portable reciprocating saw that has a saw blade attached to the end. What is so obvious with the jigsaw is that they are versatile and one of the best tools to use for rough cuts. They have very small blades that can be used to cut curves.

Oscillating tool vs. Jigsaw

• Both these tools are reciprocating tools that are manufactured for a particular cutting job. The major difference between these two tools can be witnessed on how they are handling the debris that is associated with cutting and they are way better than using the sawdust. When using the oscillating tool unlike the other saws you will not get the sawdust all over the air but they drop down to the ground because of the low angle of oscillation.

• These saws are one of the best when one wants to cut into those difficult cuts because of the ability to get into those hard places that are very hard to reach. The oscillating tool will come in very handy when one wants to remove some of the old caulk which might not be capable with the other saws.


What we have realized is that differentiating these two tools might be very hard because they have a lot of similarities in the cutting ability and reduced the need for having so many different tools for different work. This is because when you have either of these tools all one will require is to arm themselves with the right cutting blades. These tools are very versatile and can perform a variety of functions making the whole constriction or building work a child’s play.
