- Skateboard Building
- Rockit SawKit
The SawKit Coping Foot is great for cutting out board blanks as it balances on a single point. This allows you to cut into the kicks, drops, and concaves that are present on a skateboard blank.
It also allows you to manually keep your jigsaw blade at a consistent 90º angle to the floor or to follow the angle of the board.
When using a standard flat base on a jigsaw, the flat face of the base forces you to directly follow only the profile of your board.

Q: At what speed should the jigsaw operate?
A: Medium speed works best as it helps the blade from overheating.
Q: Should the blade touch the SawKit while operating?
A: No, the blade should never make contact with the SawKit. If this happens, readjust the SawKit or the jigsaw.
Q: Should the blade reciprocate forward and back while cutting out a board?
A: No, this will make too aggressive a cut and will cause chipping of the wood, use the up and down setting.
Q: Was the SawKit created for cutting out skateboards?
A: The tool was originally designed to cut the ends off baseboard and trim so that they join together cleanly. It works incredibly well for cutting out 3-dimensionally shaped skateboards.
