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.

Excellent saw

Powerful. This replaced a 30 year old craftsman saw and the new seems twice the power, and is beefier. Not sure about the removable handle—I can control it better with the handle in place. The tooless blade replacement was a little tricky to master, but I figured it out—VERY nice.

missing parts

I would like to give this a 5 start, but it arrived without hexkey, and the 2 blades it says on box that should be with it....when I contacted customer service, he said he could just give me 10% of my purchase back so I could go and purchase what was missing...REALLY?? I purchase and paid more for the Craftsman because I believe in its name. when I opend brown shipping box I knew I was introuble cause shelf box looked like it had been returned or on the shelf for 2 years ...I haven' been able to use yet, due to missing parts..

Happy craftsman and Sears customer

|

My wife got me a Craftsman tool chest and tool set last Christmas, I have since purchased a number of Craftsman power tools and keep buying more!  Every purchase convinces me to stay loyal Craftsman. For a hobbyist, you can't beat the price and quality combination of Craftsman. Sears' Shop Your Way points and incredibly fast ************* (I have never waited more than two days for a tool to arrive), make it all the better!
