    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Came down to features. I've been putting this Jigsaw thru the pases for about a month. I find the built in dust blower and LED to be very convenient (Especially at this price). Solid build. Just like any other tool, you have to play around with it to get the hang of how it cuts. You can't expect a straight line like a circular saw would give but if you get all the elements right (blade, blade speed, blade angle) you can cut pretty dang straight (I bought it specifically for NOT straight cuts). Now all this thing needs to do is keep going and even there I'm not worried because the warranty.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Light Duty Jigsaw The machine struggles to make linear cuts in 4 1/4 " maple floor planks. A lot of vibration and kickback. The machine bounces all around and ruined the floor finish. Cross cut is ok as the machine is cutting with the wood grain. Ok for plywood but not hardwood when cutting against the grain. This saw is really meant for light duty. 2 stars

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mostly Useful The jig saw works relatively well. Seems to be more play in the drive than I like. I have had a whining noise, as if the motor is failing, but the thing still works. The speed and oscillating features are nice, though. I tend to use my 60 year old, all metal, PENNEY's PENNCRAFT jig saw, most of the time. It is solid and true cutting & doesn't wander like my Ryobi. Even though it is heavier and only one speed, the PENNCRAFT does a much better job. Ryobi
