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.

1st power tool ever

|

This is the very first power tool I've ever purchased. I used it once and loved it. However....I couldn't figure out the power switch (even after reading the manual). I went back to the store in Waldorf MD and the stock guy spent about 30 mins with me figuring it out and finally figured it out. Great customer service as well!

Nice affordable saw

|

I put this saw to its test and likely pushed it beyond what it's intended to do. Originally I purchased this to replace a couple of deck boards on my deck. My deck was built to accommodate a tree growing through the deck. Over time, the tree has grown so that it was pushing into the deck boards damaging both the tree and the deck. So I purchased this saw to create some curvature cutouts in the deck boards to fit around the trunk of the tree. It worked fabulously for this. Once started, the job got bigger than originally planned and I ended up using the saw to make a ton of straight cuts through the 2X6's....a lot of 2X6s... Knowing the saw is not designed for that heavy work, it still handled it quite well. The downside of the saw is that the selector switch from orbital to stationary is touchy and found it changed itself sometimes - maybe I just bumped it by accident, but it happened more frequently than I would have liked. Overall, the saw is a very good value and I'm happy with the purchase and performance.

Need a new saw. This is a jim-dandy!

|

I have nit used the scroll function yet. but in the past couple of days have put down a laminate floor. Many bedroom doors, bathroom, linen closet. I gave it a workout. I really like this. The work light, laser, all add up to make a great saw.

Power + Versatility

|

A nice combination of power when you need it and finess when in a tight spot.  Controls are nicely placed.  The barrel grip is also useful when in working on fixed items like mounted cabinets. Haven't use it to plunge yet, but it has the power and speed to handle that pretty easily.

Love the options

|

This tool has multiple speeds which I like for the different types of lumber your are cutting. The different holding options are useful as well in terms of comfort.
