Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Circular Saws and Jig Saws is 85 pages long and like all of these books are rife with information, all you really need to know about both tools. The Circular Saws and Jig Saws book shows you what blades to choose for your work as well as some excellent shortcuts. The jig saw chapters show you the various components of your tool, blade selections, blade installation and a good variety of operational procedures.

Part of a new series, these small manuals feature clear, useful color drawings as well as photographs. The books are straight forward and focus on the basics-projects are not included. Each saw is dissected to show variations and the components, then blades, maintenance, and accessories are covered. These bare-bones guides are well done and recommended for libraries needing to stretch their dollars.
