Really nice tool

Forget about the blades in the case. My suggestion is don't even try to use them or you will get wrong impression for the tool. I have tried and was really disappointed, but decided to give it another try went to ********** and found a set of Bosch jigsaw blades. It was a completely different tool.

jig saw

Biggest pile of **** I have ever bought from sears. Might be ok if you cut wood and don't mine if you can't cut a straight line, but on thin aluminum with a bosch aluminum blade no one in my shop could cut a straight line. Does NOT hold the blade securely, it walks all over the place. If you want a real jig saw buy a high end Bosch.

Not as good as my Craftsmen professional model that was 33 years old

The blade does not remain perpendicular to the surface of the board as you cut a curve

Many Desired Features

My jig saw was dying. Per my research this Craftsman jigsaw had more desired features than any other jigsaw in my price range of $60 to $80. Tool-less blade change; accepts T & U shank blades; LaserTrac light; LED worklight; 2-way sawdust removal; 5 position orbital action; 6 amp motor; variable speed range; 360 degree scroll action and D-handle and scroll handle. Still a couple of reviews criticized the blade clamp as having a short life. I handled this concern by waiting until the jigsaw went on sale; then buying the Sears "Purchase-Protect" 3 year replacement plan so that my total cost was still within my budget. Another review criticized blade performance but said Bosch blades were best. My test confirmed that. I first cut a 2X4 using an old 12 tooth blade with the control lever shifted to "Smooth" and the variable speed dial at 6. After only cutting 1" into the 2x4 with the laser continuously on my cut line the blade had floated to the left 1/16". Next was a Sears blade, the 6 tooth blade that came with the jigsaw. After 1" it had floated off the cut line to the left by 1/32". Next was a Bosch wood 6 tooth blade. After 1" it was right on my cut line. Next was a Bosch wood 10 tooth blade. It also stayed right on the cut line. I was impressed. A jigsaw is really not intended to be used to cut through 2x 4s. I believe this jigsaw will get the job done for me and I'll stick with Bosch blades.

Great Buy!

Runs smooth and cuts easily. I use this tool often and it never fails. I enjoy woodworking with all types of wood and this tool cuts each of them.

Awesome Saw

This has to be the one of the Power Tool's I've purchased really like the 2 in 1 handle feature. The versatility of this saw is another great feature. I looked at alot of different Sabre Saw's before I purchased this one and the number one thing I wanted was the ability to Scroll and this saw is 1 of 3 I found would do that and the final decision was the price which for the money is well worth purchasing this saw.

Good saw

The jig saw works well enough, the light and laser are decent included features. However, I am having a tough time getting the blade to release. Invest in a good set of blades and the saw works well.

Good addition to the shop

Had to invest in some decent blades for this thing but it does get the job done. Have used on some 3/4 stock and some detail work with no real issues. 4/5 for the slightly awkward handle and use.

I bought this for my husband to replace an antique one he had. It is absolutely awesome. He has already created a bench for me. And he is making plans for more creations.

Does Everything

This saw can do anything that a jigsaw needs to do. By being able to use the scroll feature, it goes beyond a regualr jigsaw.
