    I recently ordered a Collins coping foot, and installed it on my Bosch 1590 jigsaw. It doesn’t seem to fit the best, and then I read in the instructions that it isn’t compatible with the 1590.
    Anyone on here have experience with this coping foot? I do have a Festool Trion 300 that I’ve thought about putting the foot on.
    Just looking for some feedback from experienced users, tips, etc….

    I think if you use it much at all it would be worth having a dedicated jigsaw.

    I think @overanalyze has one, if I remember he put it on the 12 volt jiggy?

    I have never tried the coping foot, we rarely get into material we need it for. in some cases where we have a more detailed Base to cope, we have used a scroll saw with the table beveled. it works fast and easy on shorter pieces, but is a little cumbersome on long stuff.

    I heave one on a 1590 I’m pretty sure.

    I have one but also rarely fine use for it. I find it awkward and since I use mostly pine free hand is easy.

    I have one that I use on my 12v jigsaw. I have to say that it makes coping easier and faster than any of the many other methods I’ve tried.

    I put it on mine, and used it. One problem I had was the blade isn’t long enough, but I know I don’t have the recommended blade.

    What’s the maximum blade length that is required .

    The recommended is a 4inch blade I believe.The problem I had was when the blade was at the bottom of its stroke, the tip dropped below the surface of the trim.

    Yep! I have had one one my 12v jiggy for a couple years now! Love it regardless of how detailed the profile is.

    And my old coping saw has been collecting dust for that very reason!

    As for blade length, you just can’t use the “short” blades. The mid length ones (4ish inches) or longer work just fine.

    Thanks for answering my question . Do you find a certain width blade helps with the coping foot .
