A keeper

joe, Amazon
28 January 2014
  • Summary: This is a tool that I don't use that often but when I need it is worth having X 2. Take me forever to use all the belts that come with it.

Great jigsaw - cheesy case

Tootsie Pop, amazon.com
15 December 2010
  • Summary: Used this to help cut stair stringers and it worked great. But I must say I was greatly disappointed in the carrying case. The cordless Makita drill I have came with a nice solid plastic case that the drill and accessories fit into nicely. It appears Makita didn't have the same attention to detail with this jigsaw as they just threw in a canvas bag with their name embroidered on the side. Very disappointing.

Convinent tool.

Rocky, CPO
12 November 2010
  • Excerpt: Almost as good as a corded unit. This is more flexable with having the battery. Goes along with the rest of my makita 18v set just great.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Good Design, Great for little jobs, Handy to have
  • Cons: Has a battery

Very cool

Scott Oliver, Amazon
7 March 2010
  • Summary: This is a pretty cool product. I'm cheating and using it for stuff it probably wasn't intended on being used for as a result I'm not getting smooth sanding results. I can't really blame this tool, when I am the one making the choice. Variable speeds, the belts last a while, a bit noisy but what do you want with a sander. I'd recommend it.

versatle

Christina Juhasz, Amazon
6 March 2010
  • Summary: I've used this most recently to sand the edges of some sheet metal flat -- worked really well and its compact size gets into some small spaces. I would have given it 5 stars but when using it on large flat objects it likes to leave wheel marks -- nothing you can do about it either -- all belt sanders do but this one being so thin really does it. its fine for small areas but if you have something large to sand you don't want to use this unit.

hard to kill

Noor S. Khalsa "N.S. Khalsa", Amazon
6 March 2010
  • Summary: It is possible to fatigue the supports for the metal backing plate. Otherwise, I'd give it 5 stars. But is it still one tough tool, considering that it constantly inside a sandstorm of particles that are flying off the belt. And since Bosch has discontinued their bandfile, there's not much else out there. Milwaukee's bandfile supports the narrow belts.

Great tool

malefic, Amazon
12 September 2009
  • Summary: Absolutely essential tool for my construction business. Couple of issues, the plastic splinter guard disappeared in the first 15 minutes of work, lost in the debris, and one battery supplied the jigsaw does not hold good charge. Returned battery to Makita.
