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.

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.

Box Destroyed in Shipping

|

Poor shipping experience. The jig saw was not packed in an outer box. Instead Sears/Shop Your Way slapped a shipping label on the store box. The box arrived torn open, taped and battered. The saw appears OK, but I haven't used it, as it was supposed to be a gift for my son. I'll buy from Amazon in the future (great packaging of shipments!) or pick up at a Sears store (inconvenient). Still debating about returning this product.

Faulty blade insert/release mechanisim out of the box.

|

The blade insert/release mechanism would not function out of the box. I never got a chance to see if it would cut well. The insert/release mechanism is designed with a spring system on each side of a steel pin which on inspection appears problem prone. I had high hopes for this saw but will return it today.

Good Job and Good Price

|

I had to replace my 25 year old Craftsman scrolling sabre saw and this was the one. It looks like it is a class above the old one with the additional features. The only disappointment, no flush cutting. But that is barely a negative feature for this saw.

Great Product

|

I researched quite a bit but am on a tight budget!! I found this and being Craftsman knew I couldn't go wrong!! I was really amazed at how easy it was to use and how close to my cuts I could get without having to sand my **** off!!!

Very nice sabre saw

|

I purchased this saw to replace a very old Craftsman sabre saw that was falling apart due to its age. This new saw does more and is easy to handle. The laser makes cutting a straight line easy. The light weight also adds to the ease of use. I would recommend this to anyone.

Great saw for the money!

|

I have owned many saber saws, but this little gem is the best I have ever owned. It is very versatile and delivers a quick clean cut. You can't go wrong for the money!

Saw will not cut straight

|

This is a very nice saw but it will not cut straight.  The saw veers to the left no matter what I do.  I change the blade, I try cutting other materials,  same thing.  What giod is the laser if it is pounting toward 12 o'clock but my cut line is heading toward 10 o'clock?

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

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.
