Good tool

Vishan Manoo, Amazon
15 October 2014
  • Summary: Purchased for non-heavy duty home use. Did its job well. No complaints. My local department store stocks this brand in some electronic tools as well. They cater to the average home user and usually stock good quality products. I've also seen this brand used by other workmen in the woodworking field.

Upgrades my skills

Busy Maga, Amazon
23 April 2014
  • Summary: Wow super easy blade loading. Nice straight cuts without any hassles. I have had this awhile, but finally got around to using it 2 days ago for a tabletop I was replacing. I am such an amateur, but this put a professional touch on my work. Can't wait for my next project.

Nothing like the old model - Update<<<

Earnhardt "aglennon", Amazon
24 September 2013
  • Summary: Have used this saw for cutting designs in computer case plastic bezels, steel panels and for several wood projects. Works just like our really old Skil that finally gave up the ghost. The blade storage under the back is very handy for those quick-changes. One of our number one tools for projects. ****** UPDATE: Well, after owning this for 14 months and using it about a dozen times, a blade broke off in the tool-less blade changer.

jig saw

M. Thompson, Amazon
22 August 2013
  • Summary: I am just an amateur. This jig saw does everything I need it to do ... it cuts curves, straight lines. I made a king size headboard that looks like an oak tree. This jig saw handled it well.

Like the variable speed and no tool required for blade change

Dale C. Maley "Index Fund Investor", Amazon
5 August 2013
  • Summary: My 35 year old black & decker saber saw finally quit. It had 2 speeds and required you have a screwdriver to change the blades. I really like this new saber saw. The variable speed is great. I needed to slow down the speed for sawing floating style laminate flooring pieces, and it worked much better at low speed. The easy to change blade is great too, compared to needing a screwdriver each time you change blades. The on-board storage of extra blades is handy also.

What do you expect?; It's cheap

petert, Amazon
26 July 2013
  • Summary: I bought this saw to cut some 1/8 inch aluminum stock to make a custom air cleaner for my hot rod. I didn't expect much, just that it do the job. It did, and since I hardly use this tool, it has served me well. For the price, it is good, just don't expect it to last forever. The (don't know the official name for it) "backup wheel" that keeps the saw blade from getting forced backwards is kind of cheap. It rotates around a shaft without the benefit of a roller bearing.
