This seems really nice!

  • Summary: I purchased this older model because I wanted a worklight instead of a laser. I tend to use jigsaws for curved cuts so the light and dust blower are more helpful than a laser. This model has a switch that can blow forwards or out the back for connection to a shop vac. Just remove the blade holder and attach your vacuum hose. It is a heavy saw, which is good for working on the horizontal. The weight helps keep it sitting steady and absorbs vibration.

SKIL 4390 Jigsaw

  • Summary: This jigsaw was the closest replacement to a 25 year-old jigsaw that I had tried several times to replace. I even threw one of the new ones in the trash it was so bad. I have other Skil power tools I have relied on for many years and should have started with that line when I started looking to replace my old jigsaw. Skil makes a quality jigsaw. And the best price thru Amazon.

Nice Jigsaw, Great Price!

  • Summary: The Skil 4390-01 cuts well and is a real bargain at $40.00. Not as smooth as the Bosch and could use a little larger base but everything else is pretty good. Very easy blade change and the blower works great to keep your line visible. The saw does vibrate quite a bit so if your looking for a real high quality jig saw you might want to go with the Bosch.
