  • JobMax JigSaw Head

    I've owned my JobMax for a short while and just picked up a jobmax jigsaw head attachment (Monday) for it. After installing the head onto the power handle I noticed it has a fair bit of play in the middle of the tool housing. Not the area where it attaches to the tool but in front of that area. I've attached a picture to illustrate where it seems loose. I was wondering if this is normal before I bring it back tomorrow and get it checked.

    I took off the rubber around the base and noticed it appears the housing sits into a metal groove. this is where it appears the play is coming from. When I move the tool this gap will completely close and open as much as in the picture below. Is it possible this gap is causing it to feel sloppy when on the tool? All 4 tabs have this much of a gap.

    I've had mine for about a year and have used it a few times and have never noticed this. Will keep an eye on it but mine isnt separating as bad as you describe.
