some reason barrel is double the price on cordless. Unless it's Milwaukee m12. tempting to get the on the m12 line up.

Re: Precut Foam For Cases


Barrel grips probably don't sell as fast so they don't make as many which makes them more expensive to make. Supply and demand crap. I have the newer Bosch barrel grip and the thing gets hot where I grab it towards the front. It gets uncomfortable if you use it for an extended period. My older version Bosch had no such issues.

I really like the M12 lineup for so many tools. The jig saw...well it is lightweight, kinda. The blades do fit into it. The blade doesn't track well, and the shoe often comes loose. Not the tool to bring out to show how great the M12 lineup is.

My next jig saw will be a Mafell barrel grip, with a coping foot attachment. It comes with a Systainer, and will have a nice insert to protect it.

There's a new Milwaukee Fuel Jigsaw with a dust port.

I found exacto not sharp enough and tears the foam I had. But might work for this rigid foam. I got some cheap scalpel blades off ebay and cut much better

Iím using the kaizen knife and thin blades, they priced the tools right, no reason not to get a pen and the thin blades if youíre ordering foam.
