Good, reliable, no problems after 18 months of moderate use

Douglas in Canada, Amazon
8 January 2015
  • Summary: I have used this Makita jig saw moderately over the course of 18 months. The variable speed is good. It can rip through plywood like a hot knife through butter (if you have a good blade in). Sometimes the foot/base becomes loose probably has I did not tighten it enough with the Allen key wrench. The plastic guard is very handy, but can become a bit sticky. I should lube the guard track with some silicone spray. At this point I will give 5*.

I can saw a straight (or curved) line

Mink Creek, Amazon
20 December 2014
  • Summary: Yes, Virginia, you can saw a straight line. I do a lot of DIY projects and rely heavily on a jigsaw. I had sadly come to the conclusion that I just could not cut a straight line and would always have to compensate for going off course in the last could of inches. When I got this saw I found that I could cut a straight line. With my old saw (a highly rated but less expensive one) as I neared the end of the cut the blade bent slightly and the cut curved.

Very nice saw!

  • Summary: Silent, fast and light. Very happy with the feel, control and performance. Have used it to cut some wood, steel, aluminum and ceramics and its easy to use and to quickly change the blades when needed. The plastic material of the saw is great as always with Makita and so is the metal works. Highly recommended for you who want a lighter but still high performing jig saw.

Great tool and a good value

Cary C. Dunlap "one19", Amazon
13 November 2014
  • Summary: Every Makita product I've purchased has been a great tool and this is no exception. This jigsaw is light, easy to control, and cuts like butter. Changing blades is quick and easy. I'm a 49-year-old woodworking hobbyist who loves to use quality tools. This tool is made very well and will probably outlast my ability to use it in the wood shop.

this is a good basic jigsaw

Germany Feng, Amazon
23 October 2014
  • Summary: As a hobbyist, who's not a frequent user, this is a good basic jigsaw. It quite smooth and quiet. Disappointed that it doesn't have a work light and not quick blade change. Even cheaper jigsaws have those 2 features. One thing I really don't like and have made me consider returning it was the bevel/tilt feature. If you are a perfectionist or anal like me, to reset the base with the blade to 90 degrees is not an easy task.

Better then the Black and Decker model I returned

Diane R, Amazon
12 September 2014
  • Summary: I returned two Black and Decker jig saws because the blade was being held at the wrong front-to-back angle and bought this at about twice the price. It uses a screw to lock the blade in place, but it's lighter, much quieter and with far less vibration than the Black and Decker saws -- fare more comfortable to us than the Black and Decker model I had. It also comes with its own tough plastic storage/travel case, but it stinks of plastic chemicals -- keep it closed.
