Proxxon Super Jigsaw STS/E With FREE Foot Pedal, Saw Blades, and Storage Case
Create your Own Lidded Bowls, Gourd Baskets,
and More with the Super Mini Jigsaw!
See the Videos Below!
Use the Jigsaw to make lidded containers, gourd purses, and any design in which you need to make a thin cut or have the gourd fit back together (which you cannot do when using a carving burr because the burr removes too much of the gourd).
The Proxxon Mini Super Jigaw includes the specialized "gourd foot" exclusively available through Welburn Gourd Farm! The 'gourd foot' is used in place of the large square foot that is normally attached to this saw and makes it MUCH easier to cut gourds with!
Unlike the square foot, which cannot work on rounded areas (it will lift the saw blade away from the gourd when you try to cut into a curved area on your gourd), the gourd foot is designed to sit flat against the gourd, even in tight, curved areas.
The specialized 'gourd foot' you get when you buy the saw from Welburn Gourd Farm makes it easy to cut gourds!
The regular flat foot that you get when you buy the saw elsewhere makes it difficult if not impossible to cut on the curved areas of a gourd.
In addition, the small footprint (pun intended) of the 'gourd foot' makes it easy to see around it so you can follow your cut lines easily, especially lines that make a lot of turns and curves (This saw is GREAT at making tight curves, such as leaf cut-outs!).
Plus the foot is shallow (unlike the "round foot" previously sold by Proxxon), which means more of the saw blade goes into the gourd. This extra cutting capacity makes it perfect for those thick Welburn gourds!

Watch video above to discover how to create a gourd with a hidden lid.
Shown here: This elegant lidded gourd by Heidi Anne Sanger has a thin scalloped cut, which makes the cut line nearly invisible when the lid is on; this is the type of cut you get when using the Proxxon Super Jigsaw!

Use GourdMaster Black Paint in the inside of your gourd to hide your cut line (see video above for details).
The Proxxon Mini Super Jigaw plugs directly into a socket, eliminating the need for the heavy and bulky transformers that are found in other models.
Insider tip: Before you insert the blade of the saw into the gourd, be sure to make an initial cut with a Hobby Knife, or something similar. Once you have made the first cut all the way through the gourd, insert the saw blade until the "foot" of the saw sits flush on the gourd. Once you complete those steps, turn the saw on and begin cutting. Try not to apply too much pressure or you can break your saw blade.
