What is the best blade to use in my jigsaw for circular cuts?

Choosing the best curve cutting jigsaw blade is essential for completing your tasks with the best results. It is important to get the appropriate tools for the material that you are using.

Here a few tips and tricks for cutting circles with jigsaws.

  1. Choose a blade that is appropriate for the material that you are working with
  2. Blades with a higher TPI (teeth per inch) will provide a smoother cut
  3. Narrow blades are preferred for curved/circular cuts
  4. For softwoods, softer hardwoods (poplar, mahogany, alder, etc.), and sheet goods, run your jigsaw at its highest speed for most cuts. If you encounter resistance, back off the speed slightly.
