Great jig saw

Lee M, Amazon

  • Summary: Works great. Cuts accurately. Only issue is the clear plastic insert the blade goes through in the base plate falls out, doesn't seem to affect performance.

Good visibility with the LED

  • Summary: Strong and steady cutting. Good visibility with the LED. Still new so I don't know how long the blade changeout lever will last. The instruction manual actually tells you to take it easy on this part so I am cautious with it.

A bit unconventional looking, but a great design

Patrick B. Manning, Amazon
22 August 2014
  • Summary: A good saw. The barrel design looks different than most jig saws, but I find it much more comfortable and controllable to use. It also permits you to easily make a cradle and clamp the saw (upside down) to a workbench and use it as a jig/table saw for making more precise or repetitive cuts in pieces that are not conveniently clamped. Granted not a common use, but handy if you need it, and something I can't see doing with a conventional top handle jig saw.

A cut above

  • Summary: Great tool all around. Tight turns are not problem. It feels great in your hand. The light makes it easy to see exactly where the blade is.

Not what I expected.

Surf/Bike "stefano_g", Amazon
24 April 2014
  • Summary: I was very much looking forward to try this saw after the excellent reviews I have read. I had a 3' thick piece of lumber to rip and cross cut and when I saw that at 90 degrees the tool is able to cut over 5' i thought the cut would be easy. I used a edge clamp to make the cut straight. I also bought the xtra-clean Bosch saw blade. But when i started to rip the lumber..oh god..the blade flex laterally A LOT.
