Broke twice in One day

Toy Lover, Amazon
23 October 2012
  • Summary: I purchased this item and had to return it twice cause of mechanical failure. I had an Ace Hardware jig saw for the last 7 years which I bought for $20 and it did the job. I wanted to treat myself with a new tool and always thought Dewalt was a quality brand. Unfortunetly I was wrong...

Don't Buy a Dewalt DW317K

Repeat Offender, Amazon
13 October 2012
  • Summary: I bought this jig saw thinking it would be a quality tool but only used it a couple of times before the saw quit working. Turns out the main drive gear teeth got chewed out without even working the saw very hard. Being a maintenance tech I ordered new parts and repaired the unit myself.

Wandering blade

E. Weber, Amazon
8 October 2012
  • Summary: This is a very disapointing tool (and was my last dewalt miss fortune). It is very hard to do a straight cut wihtout having the blade wandering. Even using a guide and a slow feed rate the cut is far from perfect.

crooked cuts

Rick, Amazon
18 September 2012
  • Summary: I had a Sears jig saw that lasted 15 years and and was a workhorse on plenty of projects. When it finally died I thought I would buy a quality name tool and so I bought the Dewalt DW317. What a mistake. Now.... I know I'm not the best craftsman, but I surely know how to make a straight cut.

This saws features, design & performance just didn't meet "my demands" or expectations.

Allen., Amazon
11 September 2012
  • Summary: I purchased the DW317 This saw just was not good enough for me or to justify $105 with tax or the bonus sander to boot. The motor runs good its a bit noisy. The black plastic for the orbiting settings seems cheap.
