I was thinking, the Ridgid JobMax modular tool system could really use a saw of some kind to make it more versatile. Yes, there’s the oscillating multi-tool, but a traditional reciprocating saw or jig saw attachment sure would be nice.
*Poof* – I have my wish! Ridgid is soon coming out with a new JobMax jig saw head! In my opinion, this makes the new corded JobMax starter kit a bit more desirable over the cordless 12V lithium ion JobMax starter kit. The jig saw head is said to be good for cutting wood, laminate, drywall, metal, and plastic, with the appropriate blade of course.
I have to say, I think that this attachment is going to look comically amusing with the large JobMax handle sticking out of it. But who cares what it looks like, as long as it works well, right?
Pricing and availability information is not yet available. But if I had to guess, I’d think the tool head will go for $50 and may be available in late September or early October.
