Festool Trion PS (and PSB) 300 EQ Jigsaw

festool_trion.jpgThe Festool Jigsaw has been out for a while, but we were recently reading about it and got to wondering why we had never covered it in the past. Festool makes some of the best tools around and after checking out some of the features on the Trion, it's obvious that this is a cut above other jigsaws.

The most impressive thing about the Trion is the 3-way blade guidance system. The blade is kept stable first by the pendulum rod, second by the pendulum guide, and third by the two carbide plates at the cutting point. If you've ever ruined a piece of wood with a wandering jigsaw blade, you should understand the value of this tool.

The Trion comes in two models; one with the barrel grip (PS) and one with the more standard d-handle (PSB). Both models are the same price and, other than the handle, there are no discernable differences.

Because Festool tools are of such high quality, they aren't cheap. The Trion goes for about $280. But if you consider what a finely tuned tool it is, and that you'll probably have it for a long time, it could easily be worth the cost.
