Got this tool after watching an instructional video where it was being used. I am very impressed. After having several corded jigsaws, this is my first encounter with a cordless model. I honestly believe that it is more powerful than the corded models I have used. It's not overly weighty, and is easy to manipulate. 4 stars instead of 5 because it doesn't come with any type of blade.

I have many Ridgid tools and they are normally a bit heavier than other cordless tools. The jigsaw seems to be lighter and more balanced than the average Ridgid Cordless selection.

Storage

Is there a nowhere to store the blades for the stick saw on the jigsaw.? What's jigsaws have a storage place built into the jigsaw and nowhere that I can find in the manual or on the stool is there a spot dedicated for storage of blades. There are plenty of places it could have been put but for some reason not added or utilized?

does this jigsaw do orbital work

Asked by: yan
Yan, Thank you for contacting us concerning the RIDGID 18-Volt OCTANE Brushless Jig Saw Kit with 4.0 Ah Battery and 18-Volt Charger The blade of the saw cuts in an orbital motion. This feature is adjustable and provides faster, more efficient cutting. With orbital motion the blade cuts through the work on the upstroke but does not drag across the work on the downstroke. To adjust the orbital motion, rotate the orbital adjustment knob to the desired setting. Refer to the chart below to find the right setting for your application. NOTE: Setting the orbital position to a lower setting will result in a smoother finish but slower cut. A higher setting. will result in a rougher finish but faster cut.
