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.

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 1 out of 5 by from Worst Ridgid Tool Three big negatives, base always comes loose, power switch is not in a user ergonomic place and it is next to impossible to have a cut line to blade view when cutting.

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 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.
Date published: 2017-05-30
Rated 3 out of 5 by from There are better units I used this tool for the first time this morning. The non-marring base is not good. It does mar the surface. Also, the base is so soft I gouged it from the surface I was cutting (1/16" steel). The quick change blade is good. I don't like the adjustable base. It does not have positive notches to find the preset angles. Once I set the saw at 0°, the vibration of the saw caused the base to loosen and change the angle. That messed up my work piece. Nope; don't buy this one folks. I have a Bosch that serves me well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It took a little to get used to as far... It took a little to get used to as far as how it fits in my hand and the on/off is not to my liking, but it performs great.
