Summary: When cutting the blade has a tendency towards cutting clear plastic guide, I could have bought another product for less and still got the job done. Not what I expected from a Milwaukee product.
Summary: I've got to say this thing sucks. I'm giving it two stars because it works and it feels heavy and well built, unfortunately that's where the positive ends. Mine has the quick adjustable base that doesn't square itself very well. I have to use a square so it'll cut accurately. That I can deal , the thing I really dislike however is the fact the blade doesn't sit straight.

Summary: I'm having the same problem with the blade not being straight in the tool. Also, the blade comes out, while I'm cutting. I was very disappointed. It's the first Milwaukee tool that I didn't like. The motor and everything else runs smooth and is balanced. Milwaukee needs to do a recall on this one. I have a Sawsall that's 35 years old and still runs great through years of tough work.
Summary: This jig saw is pretty solid and hard working like a lot of other Milwaukee products that I have. But the other reviews that warn you that it doesn't track straight are right on the money. The blade is crooked and makes it almost impossible to cut a straight line, let alone anything fancy or fine. I figured that it might be only one or two with this problem, but mine has it too and I really don't know what to do about it.
Milwaukee tops the ratings in cordless tool reviews

Summary: I haven't had a chance to use this yet, but based on the ratings and reviews I researched before buying it, Milwaukee cordless tools, though among the most expensive, are the best available. I would be nice if they included some blades with this saw however. This was one of the few Milwaukee tools that I didn't see available as the "Fuel" version, with would be a step up.
Summary: Great tool for cordless use. Battery life is long enough to do a sink cut-out in a 1 1/2 inch thick counter top. Handy for all those miscellaneous notches and cut-outs when doing sheeting or decking.
Summary: There are some pretty big issues with this saw. The biggest of which was the lock on the guard. Even barely putting any pressure will cause the angle to change. Destroyed the splinter guard in short order. Wish I could like it since I use Milwaukee a lot but this is a model to skip. The comparable dewalt is pretty awesome though.
