Summary: A pretty good jigsaw it had a lot of speed and power I have had mine for two years now and it still runs like a new one it's built stong and made to last I will always buy a skil jigsaw from now on.
Summary: The overall feel of this jigsaw is solid and durable. Variable speed is nice and works fine. The motor feels very strong, and I expect to enjoy many years of use. I use mine for modifying computer cases, for which it's perfect. I'm sure to find hundreds more uses too. A must for any reasonable power tool collection. Skil on the whole makes solid, reliable basic budget power tools. This jigsaw is no exception.
Summary: The Skill 4290-02 4.5 Amp saw is a replacement for a Craftsman Saw that I have no complaints with. The Skill is a plug in and the Craftsman is a Battery. The Skill Saw is one excellent choice. The price is reasonable and so far the quality and performance is second to none. It feels and handles exceptionally. The bit change is quick and effortless. The cuts are accurate and precise. I am extremely happy with my purchase.
