A keeper

  • 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.

versatle

Christina Juhasz, Amazon
1 April 2013
  • 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.

Very cool

Scott Oliver, Amazon
14 November 2012
  • 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.

One thing to be aware of...

C. Kersey, Amazon
15 March 2012
  • Summary: I just received my jigsaw and had one surprise that I thought would be worth passing along. I had planned on using my existing Makita 18v batteries from my drill/driver set, but when I tried to insert either battery, neither would fit. Apparently the slim-line 18v batteries (1.5Ah) which came with the drill/driver won't work in this saw - you need the 3.0Ah battery instead.

Makita JIG SAW

Michael G., Amazon
26 December 2011
  • Summary: Wanted it for quite a while and I bought it with the 20$ off sale.. I was a little dissapoited by the power of the Jig Saw..when you push it too fast it feels like you have low battery. Now that I have it for a while - it sure meet my expectations - Solid and strong, a little heavy though. I liked the quick release of the blades, the plastic protection for the bottom and the LED light. Good product but a little overpriced.
