Re: Tools: First strip build - first question

I have decided that a definite weak link is my hand-held jig saw. It is a $19 cheapie from long before I began woodworking as a hobby. I rarely use it, which might be because it is crap and what it does best is make noise.

I've a fondness for Bosch tools and am looking at both the JS470 http://amzn.to/2hF0rPa (about $150) and the JS572 http://amzn.to/2hFov4u (about a hundred bucks more)

If you were buying a jig saw JUST for kayak building, would you find the differences compelling?

Also, while not willing to go the distance toward a $500 ROS, I am planning an upgrade to the Bosch Bosch 3725 based on an article on the CLC site ( http://www.clcboats.com/life-of-boats-blog/boat-builder-random-orbital-sander-roundup.html )
