Customer Questions & Answers

IS 3 AMPS REALLY STRONG ENOUGH?

EVEN THE CHEAPEST $29 JIG SAW IN THE AISLE IS 4.5 AMPS AND THE BETTER ONES ARE AROUND 6 AMPS
Asked by: JERSEYGUY
I couldn't get the saw to bog down, even through very wet 2 by PT.

Blades included?

does this saw come with a blade (s)?
Asked by: Anonymous
Yes. In fact, two blades are included - one for metal and the other for wood. I would suggest, however, purchasing new blades - possibly a set of Bosch or the like. The blades that come with the unit are easily bent and lack the "fine" cutting capability of nicer blades. You can get a pack of 4-6 for about $9.00. Be sure you get the "T-style" and NOT the "U".

Does this have variable speed to be able to start slow and then go faster?

Asked by: BigBoy
This model doesn't have variable speed. It does start slow and then speed up, but it only takes about 2 secs to get to maximum speed.

Fuego 3 Amp Compact Orbital Jig Saw is rated 2.9 out of 5 by 136.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from This has got to be one of the worst tools I have ever used. Pros: It turned on. Has a case. Cons:... This has got to be one of the worst tools I have ever used. Pros: It turned on. Has a case. Cons: Heavy, awkward. Difficult to see what is being cut. Table will not stay tight, can't keep level. Must use two hands to operate (turn on/off). This tool should be removed from Rigids inventory and apologies made to anyone that bought it. I purchased then returned after trying to use. This aint good.

This jig saw sucks. Power switch is not convenient. Hard sight lines while using. What good is it if not for precision work? Waste too much time using. Very bad design. Used it twice.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great saw little awkward at first Bought this saw today to replace my old black & decker that was stolen by our crack head helper, hes no longer with us but i had that saw for years. This saw needs time getting used to. The on and off swithch is in a bad spot because there is no handle. The light makes it hard to see your marks. It does cut very good and accurate. I read on some reviews that people cannot see the blade. On the front of the saw there is something you can look at and it cuts right on the line. It stays straight. I like how it starts slow and works up to speed. I install laminate so no more chipping when starting off. I was going to return it when I cut my first few boards, thought it was going to be useless. By the end of the day I gotten used to it and decided to keep it. Another nice feature is it takes both T and U shank blades..

I got this jigsaw because it was the most affordable low-profile barrel grip design available. The only pro I could find after about two months of frequent use was that it is easy to control...which I already knew would be the case. The cons: Line of sight to the blade is very dificult to obtain. The shoe base does not stay square no matter how tight I crank on the nut. The on-off switch is in a really inconvenient location and shuts off with the vibration of the tool randomly in the middle of making cuts...very inconvenient.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed I usually really like Rigid products but am disappointed in this saw. The foot won't lock, the blade won't release, and the vac port is so low, when a hose is plugged in the rear of the foot is off the work surface. It's a bunch of good ideas poorly put together. It's going back tomorrow!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poorly made I had a Dewalt jig saw and it was stolen, decided to buy this instead because it was cheaper, should have went back to Dewalt. The operation isnt smooth and the blade locking sucks, the design is kewl thats why i gave it 2 stars.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great, but no variable speed? All is good but I just took for granted power tools of this type had variable speed. Good for heavy work. Not sure if it'll be something I'll get much use with. But it's built tough like all the other rigid tools I own.
