SawGuide™ - Replacement Parts

The new and improved Milescraft SawGuide™ turns hand-held circular and jigsaws into precision cutting tools. Using the SawGuide™, you can make long, difficult edge cuts without the use of a table saw. Speed through these tough cuts, at home or in the field, and make sure they come out right every time.

Users can quickly set up their saw to make straight, angle, bevel, and rip cuts. When flipped over, the SawGuide becomes a circle cutting guide for your jigsaw and can make circles from 6” to 24” in diameter. The SawGuide’s universal non-slip base holds your saw firm ensuring straight final cuts and works with almost any circular saw or jigsaw.  Whether right-handed or left, the versatile and reversible edge guide can be configured on both sides of the SawGuide™ to ensure comfortable and safe operation.  The long edge guides your saw all the way through the cut ensuring clean entry and exit cuts.

Picked one of these up at Home Depot and was skeptical about whether it would work or not. It worked perfectly. I needed rip ⅛" off of a 1 x 2½ board. Works like a dream.

I am using the SawGuide to cut circles, why is the cut getting larger?

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.
