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.

I bought this item online using points and cash back. After the transaction went through I received a call saying that this item was not in stock and I would receive a refund. They didn't refund my cash back points. They basically took $16.00 that I earned from prior purchases and I got nothing in return. I called corporate and was told there was nothing they could do. No wonder Sears is going out of business. If I could give zero stars I would.

6 amp 2-in-1 jigsaw


I have issues with this product cutting a straight line. The plunger and blade are aligned to the right in the housing causing me to saw to the left at a 30-45 degree angle to get a straight line. I’ve used it three times to cut foam, pinewood derby car, and a 1x3x1/2 board. The owners manual covers only four issues and this problem is not ones of them. The arrows are aligned on the scroll ****, but the plunger is twisted. The blades are not easy to change out either. I would suggest going with another brand until Craftsman changes this design.

Scrolling jig saw blade bad alignment.


The scrolling jig saw vertical shaft is machined improperly. The last 5 that I examined were all the same. The blade angles about 10 degrees to the left. Just turn it over and look at the blade alignment. So obvious, how could QC miss it.
