Needs More Heft for Thick Gourds
This is an amazing little saw for tricky cuts and general gourd craft use but be sure your gourd shell isn't super thick or you'll break blades like crazy and the blades are pretty short so sometimes they won't even go down deep enough to cut through a really thick shelled gourd. And there's no easy way to get that last 1/8th inch or so cut through. But it's still the best hand jig saw out there for gourds so I try to be very slow and patient with it when the gourd is really thick. Wish there was a heavier duty version of this this saw for those of us who like to work on the really big, thick walled gourds.
