^yes... and a $1000 bandsaw will probably get you better results than a $1000 jigsaw. Not to say I wouldn't like to have both, but the bandsaw comes first in my mind. I don't know of any jigsaws that can cut 6"+ of material, period. Speaking of Mafell, any tool they make is pretty awesome, and pretty expensive too. I have never had the scratch to own one, but the router is on my list (about a $1500 setup). I worked for a number of months with a timber framing company and we used a mortiser, portable band saw, 12" circular saws, drilling station, 13" power planer,and a router, all of them made by Mafell. It's astounding how good the quality is.
