Hi,

I have a non-variable black & decker jigsaw, how can i slow it down?

i'm cutting pvc which melts because of blade speed.

There must be a way, of decreasing the current, given to the motor.

I can open it up, what do i need to do? Maybe use an external dc or something. Please there must be a simple way of slowing it down.

Thanks

John

Although both suggestions so far are reasonable and may work just fine for you, another thought is blade selection. Bosch offers a jig saw blade that is made for non-ferrous metals such as aluminum and plastics such as PVC. It is designed in such a way that it is not supposed to “load up” thus reducing the amount of heat created and making quicker cuts.

Only $8.75 for a 5-pack
