Jigsaw cutting walnut

The right tool for your cut.

Master virtually any material and application thanks to the robust build and flexibility of the Carvex design. With multiple baseplates for cutting wood, wood-like materials, plastics, and metals, the Carvex adapts to any application. Simplify set-ups for angle cuts with an all-new Adjustable Angle Base (sold separately) with rotary adjust knob. And a tool-free exchange system allows for quick and easy base changes. Cut with ease and control with unparalleled ergonomics, dual-access power switch, and low vibration.

Triple Blade Guidance.

Triple Blade Guidance

Festool jigsaws utilize carbide guides to virtually eliminate blade deflection, even when cutting in materials as thick as 4-3/4 inches. That means you can cut with the confidence of knowing your end results will be perfectly perpendicular. A clear replaceable plastic splinterguard prevents chipping.

Stroboscopic LED Lights.

Stroboscopic LED Lights

Four high-intensity white LEDs surround the blade on every side to reduce shadows that may interfere with your cut line. At speed, the LEDs synchronize to the speed of the blade causing it to appear to stop moving improving your ability to follow your cut line. The LEDs can be configured to be always on, always off or strobostopic.

Interchangeable Base System.

Interchangeable Base System

Flip the base release lever to swap between a collection of task-specific bases available for the Carvex jigsaws. The tool-free operate let's you change bases in seconds. The amazing angle base is adjustable +/- 45° for inside and outside corners. Choose from a variety of bases to match your application.

FastFix Blade Chuck.

FastFix Blade Chuck

The Carvex features a new patented tool-free blade chuck. Simply insert the blade and give it a twist to lock it into the chuck. Use the release trigger on the side of the jigsaw to eject the blade. No more grabbing a hot blade to remove it. Now, that's smart!

Stroke Adjustment.

Stroke Adjustment

The stroke adjustment knob lets you select how aggressive you would like the Carvex to cut. Select from four modes ranging from fine to aggressive. At a whopping maximum 3,800 stroke per minute, the Carvex can plow through material quickly.

Adjustable Chip Guard.

Adjustable Chip Guard

The chip guard can be adjusted vertically to provide optimal visibility while retaining excellent dust extraction. The chip guard can also be completely removed. The integrated blower moves dust away from the cut line when dust extraction is not being used.

Variable Speed Trigger.

Variable Speed Trigger

On the D-Handle models of the Carvex, the auxiliary trigger on the handle can be used to regulate the speed of the cut in addition to the variable speed dial. A locking button allows you to lock the trigger to the full on position.

Dust Extraction.

Dust Extraction

You've not truly experienced dust collection until you've used a Festool power tool coupled with a Festool CT dust extractor. Our dust extractors are designed to capture up to 99.997% of all dust particles down to 0.3 microns in size. Purchase your Festool jigsaw with a Festool CT dust extractor for instant savings.

Built to Last.

Built to Last

With all of the sophisticated technology packed into Festool jigsaws, let's not forget a key criteria for any power tool --- durability! Festool power tools are built to withstand your toughest demands. Don't get the impression that our tools are too delicate for the jobsite. Festool torture tests all of its power tools with some extreme conditions, many that you would never imagine doing to your own tool.

Brushless Motor.

Brushless Motor

Brushless motors offer significant advantages over motors with brushes, including higher efficiency and reliability, reduced noise, and longer service life to name a few. This helps Carvex jigsaws outperform other jigsaws, especially cordless models, that would otherwise be in the same class. Brushless motors are as much as 39% more powerful than an equivalent brushed motor and extend battery life.

Lithium Ion Technology.

Lithium Ion Technology

Did we mention we warranty your batteries for three years! Our cordless jigsaws represent the culmination of the best technology available today, with features unique only to Festool.
