Summary: The saw is quite nice. It cuts well. The laser does not require a separate battery like almost every other laser equipped tool. The saw cuts well - the only thing I'm not crazy about is the settings on the side. It isn't completely clear what each setting does as far as varying speed and orbit size.
Summary: Let me start by saying that I'm a girl. And just like every girl should have her own money, she should also have her own tools. To save money, I am often responsible for fixing/building whatever needs to be done around my house. So I learned largely by doing how to use tools.
Summary: This is a great tool. I wasn't expecting much since it's made by Skil, but I've found that it works very well. Blade changes are tool-less and easy, and the saw runs very smoothly. There are four settings for material types as well as the scrolling function, which I find works particularly well.
Summary: I have had this saw for a little over two months and have been very satisfied. It is a little on the heavy side but that is reflected in the amount of power, it has plenty, at least for what I do with it. The laser is right on and is bright enough to keep you on track.
Summary: This is a nice saw and the light and laser are very useful. But I do have a problem with it... The guide plate at the bottom doesn't stay tight which allows the blade to tilt to one side or the other.
Summary: I saw this jigsaw on the show cool tools and then researched them. The price and features of this saw are unbeatable. I love the light and laser. Easy blade change, blade storage on board and a case included.
