Questions & Answers

Will this cut 1-1/2" lumber?

Asked by: Brillo
Depending on the kind of wood you're cutting you have to adjust your speed as to how fast you cut.It will cut lumber of that thickness. You will also need to have the proper blade in your saw that will make the cut of the hardness of your lumber.

Does this come with a vblade

Asked by: Mando
Not sure what a vblade is. This unit comes with no cutting blades at all. The unit utilizes T-Shank blades.

5.5 Amp Jig Saw Kit is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 133.

(I don't use them very often) I've been buying DeWalt tools for several years now and I couldn't be happier with the brand. So I went with this DeWalt unit. I've used it about a dozen times now. Unit is very smooth operating and well balanced. The automatic dust blowing feature works well when unit is running on High. If you are running the unit at slower speed, you will have to keep the saw dust cleaned off of your cut line the old fashioned way. FYI- the unit comes with no blades and the blade type is: T-Shank. I bought a case of assorted Bosch T-Shank blades. One Disappointment: All of my other DeWalt tools came with a hard case. This comes with a cloth case. I would have preferred a hard case. This cloth case seems durable but I think that over time the Plastic zipper will be the weak link, so we'll see.

Had this saw around two years, only used it a few times on 3/4" plywood and worked great. However today I was cutting a radius on 1 1/2" pine and the orbital adjustment keeps jumping from position 3 to 0. Further inspection of the tool revealed what I consider a design flaw. The spring loaded beads that sit in the recess are either not strong enough or too short to keep the adjuster in position. Disappointed now as all my power tools are Dewalt and this is the only one I am disappointed with.

This Jig Saw is awesome, very powerful yet easy to move in spherical patterns in wood; fits nicely in palm and since is relatively heavy it requires only a little push to make a cut.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Skip's thoughts Powerful jig saw. My 4th jig saw. Ease of changing blades,I like the bright color DeWalt yellow.One major concern the lock on switch on handle easily engaged .Just wrapping one's hand around tool in use activates lock on switch .Failure Of lock on switch in poor location is dangerous.Over all rating good power tool.Caution with lock on Switch.Thanks.

I would recommend this to everyone. I would like for it to come in a hard shell case like the rest of my DeWalt tools but that doesn't affect the way it performs. I have always liked the DeWalt line of power tools and will continue to buy and use them until I can no longer work.Thank You for creating reliable tools.

I have only had this saw about a couple of weeks now, but that will not change the way I think of it now. This small yet simple tool takes the place of several others. I needed a Jig Saw, Table Saw, and a Miter Saw. I got this Jig Saw, and no longer need a Table Saw, because this one does all the cutting that a Table Saw was needed for. I can make a 45 degree cut by turning the foot, I can make a straight cut by making a line with a laser level, which I would do even with a Table Saw, and cut it. It took the place of the Miter Saw by cutting all the small pieces as well as the big ones cross cut, and for added abilities, it also took the place of a Reciprocating Saw. WOW all these tools in one. IT is even a Variable speed, and the easiest thing to load the blades that I have ever saw. With this one saw, it is all done. I built an entire dog house with just this one saw, and a drill of coarse to pre-drill the holes that needed to be screwed. They should call this the Miracle Saw.
