Purchased - New jigsaw

Proposal Type:

Mark Dale - WoodyDusty

Proposal to buy a new jigsaw to replace the two old ones we have.
The ones we have are a bit worn out and are lacking a few quality of life features such as tool free blade changing.

Proposed Purchase:

Change to consumables list:
We have jigsaw blades listed on the consumables spreadsheet but no details for them given.
We’ve specified the cheap budget ones in the past but they don’t last very long and don’t seem as good value as they first appear

Propose to specify that members buy the 5 packs of Bosch course tooth pitch blades to ensure the jigsaw can cut as fast as possible since members often force our tools though material.

Proposed Installation:
Woodwork hand tool


Funding type:
Fully funded by Hackspace

Health & Safety
No changes required to the risk assessment

Small Proposal < £150 - 2 Board Members and 5 Members
