Hi David,

Go for as fine a blade as possible & let the blade do the work - do not force it.

Lidl (or is it Aldi or Netto) are doing a mains jigsaw for something like £9.99 at the moment so that may be worth a look - I'll try & find the details & post the URL.

BTW - your Roco item is on order.

It was only £29.98 and I even got £3 off that by using my pensioner's card on a Wednesday. Apart from being much quicker at cutting, it makes the ends absolutely square which you can't do by hand - well I can't anyway!

I got a tenner off mine because they could'nt find the box !
