Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is an excellent product Bought to replace a tired old blackndecker. Wow, worth every penny, cuts 3/4" fir plywood like hot knife through butter. I was used to having to push to make saw cut. This machine cuts so fast that more directional care and control is required. Very powerful and precise cutting (cuts vertically) like it is supposed to. Good buy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from looks like a good quality tool Well , the jig saw seems to be of really good quality , beefy, and has some features that the older jig saws didn't have. I would recommend this product to others. However , on the other side the jig saw came in a cardboard box with one blade and i didn't see the kit box that shows in the description and in the title , it says " DeWALT 5.5 Amp Compact Jig Saw Kit" WHERES THE KIT???

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Pas assez fiable J’ai hésité entre la Dewalt et la Ryobi. Malheureusement je me suis basé sur le nom et acheté la Dewalt. Elle était en spécial, et semblait très robuste. Elle a de bonne qualité. Changer une lame est ultra-simple et elle semble être solide. Par contre elle est lourde et dure à manier. Elle a une bonne puissance. Sauf qu’après 30 minutes d’utilisation, elle s’est arrêtée et ne fonctionne plus du tout. J’ai donc été l’échanger pour la RYOBI. Je lui donne deux étoiles parce qu’elle a des qualités et que je suis peut-être simplement tombé sur une mauvaise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! My wife bought this DeWalt 5.5 Amp Compact Jig Saw Kit for me as a father's day gift. I've been without a jig saw for a number of years and dreaded doing every job that needed it. Didn't want to buy a cheapy and couldn't afford to buy an expensive tool. This one was apparently on sale and wow - what a deal. Great tool! The only negative comment is the on-line description implied that it would come with a "kit case", but it didn't.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Powerful, but... This is a very powerful jigsaw, cut really fast using the orbital action and a major upgrade from my two previous jigsaws. Speed settings, blade removal are all very easy to change. However: a) Cutting a precise 90 degrees angle as you turn the blade is not easy ie: cutting a curve and needing the final result to be square, the bottom of the blade will curve if you turn to tightly (with no orbital action) b) Adjusting the shoe for bevel cuts was a pain, it was very difficult to loosen the screw (from the factory setting). It would have been better if Dewalt installed a bolt instead of a straight edge screw. The bevel notch is not precise enough when you want to bring back the shoe to 90 degrees. It took quite some time and a square to bring back the shoe to a 90 degree cut. It is a good product, but if you are looking to do precise work, it may not be the tool for you.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from ok saw the saw cuts but not well. i also have a bosch d-handle jig saw. the bosch cuts much better. even with a brand new blade the dewalt doesnt cut as well and is harder to control. for the normal home handyman it would work but i use mine everyday when im installing hardwood floors. i would go for the bosch over the dewalt every day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Jigsaw with Lots of Power I am a homeowner. I just finished building a 6' x 100' fence. I let my neighbour have the finished side and decided to spruce up the unfinished side by scalloping the top 2" x 6" pressure treated board. I started with a brand new budget-priced well known brand jig saw - it lasted part way through one board, perhaps 15 minutes of continuous use with a new blade and then literally melted in my hand The Dewalt purchase replaced the defective saw and tore through the remainder of the boards - running full tilt for more than 20 - 30 minutes at a shot. The saw got warm but kept on cutting. The quick no key blade replacement is very handy. With rough use the odd time a blade will pull out, but it re inserts (after cooling) quickly. I am looking forward to trying out some of the features of the saw. For now I'm satisfied that it is a strong tool designed for daily use.

type of blades

I see this uses the "T" blade. I'm wondering if it also uses the universal blades, or only the T type?
Asked by: Anonymous
The DW317 will accept both universal and "T" shank blades.
