The Coping Foot is a dome shape base for the jig saw that allows you to bevel, turn and pitch the blade while changing any of those angles during the cut. Any way the blade is angled the saw is supported right at the kerf. Making a twisting cut such as you would find in a spiral handrail is a skill easy to learn with a coping foot. When the saw is held by the barrel with the blade up, very clean, accurate and complex cuts can be made such as you would encounter coping crown molding.
The Coping Foot is very compact. You can saw very close to other obstacles. Do a sink cutout up against a back splash for instance or cut a bottom plate next to a stud. Any big scribing job is much easier with a Coping Foot because you can back bevel at will without making any adjustments to an adjustment screw. Finish carpenters use the jig saw mostly for back beveling irregular lines, and so the Coping Foot becomes the ideal base for the jig saw. Many carpenters never change back to a flat base unless they need to scroll.
The Coping Foot is formed from 14 ga. plated steel. You’ll wear out a couple of jig saws before you wear out your Coping Foot.

Many o f the saws on this list are now equipped with a wire finger guard that prevents the operator from getting fingers between the saw body and the base. If the guard interferes with the installation of a Coping Foot you may choose to move it according t o your own ingenuity. Understand that it will void any claims against the manufacturer for injuries causes by its absence or alteration.
Power tools are dangerous in the hands of an unskilled person. To develop skill i n the use of a free - handing jig saw, clamp the stock to the bench and go slowly at first using both hands on the saw for control and for personal protection.
Although the Coping Foot can be installed on many battery powered saws, they are not recommended for the simple reason that battery p owered tools can not be locked on.
The Coping Foot fits some home - owner saws although they may not be suited for coping.
