    Most of my jigsaw cutting is on plywood and usually involves curves - hence the jigsaw. For making straight cuts on plywood I usually use the edge of another sheet of plywood clamped to the work piece. I have lots of You can never have enough clamps.
    That's pretty much what it is, a long aluminium clamp the saw runs along. Simple but very effective as I don't have spare bits of wood laying around.

    Can't see what it is but I hardly ever use a jigsaw for straight cuts.
    The circ saws best for that, hell even a handsaws usually a better straight cut.

    For extractors and the like it's worth paying the extra for a brand IMO. Cheap ones may land you further in it.

    After the oil light came on on the T140 last weekend, i replaced various oil seals and the oil pump which seems to have cured it, but on the basis that the light only triggers at 3-5 psi and normal tickover pressure should be 25ish, I've just ordered this to get a better idea if I need to start tearing down the bottom end or not...
