When I bought this I was dubious. I have had several other jigsaws over the years; all with greater amperage . Some of these were cheap and some pricey. This Jig Saw cuts through heavy wood like butter. The very first day I carved up several butcher block counter tops without any hesitation. Since I have handled knotty pine and heavy plywood with never a hesitation.

Answer: 
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".

Fuego 3 Amp Compact Orbital Jig Saw is rated 2.9 out of 5 by 123.

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 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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product Soft start seemed strange at first, however it is far more friendly. This saw handles well, cuts awesome! The blow feature is a plus, keeping dust off your cut line. Familiarize yourself fully with the saw on some scrap before putting to a project piece. Also recommend purchasing a variety of blades.
Date published: 2016-12-09
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth the money There is a 3 second delay when you turn it on until it actually turns on. The line of sight is terrible. You have to have your face close to your work to see. The saw dust piles up in front of the blade so you have to blow that out of the way to continue cutting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fuego 3 Amp Comoact Orbital Jig Saw I like the weight of the jig saw , with a lighter jig saw you have to add more pressure to keep it from bouncing around . With the Ridgid you just guide it along .

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent Saw I wanted to love this saw, but ended up only liking it slightly better than my old one. The grip is large, and fits my hand well. I feel like I have more control and less fatigue, but the blade visibility is basically non-existent which blows any perceived benefits of this "compact" design out of the water. The non-marring base is a neat idea, but I haven't see replacement parts available yet. I hate the power switch design, wish it was thumb-operable and side-mounted like on a drill, instead of on the top of the saw. I would say if you are looking for a new saw, skip this one. If you have a reliable saw and are looking to add to your collection, purchase.
Date published: 2016-10-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saw for the money Don't let the reviews about not being able to see your line fool you. Why do people write reviews when they have no experience using tools? Good view from both sides and clearly visible from the front if you'll just look over the top at your blade. Decent power. Easy to control. You'll pay a lot more for other barrel handled saws. Low profile makes it more stable. I wrote this review because of the negative reviews about this saw. Overall a 3? Come on guys. Don't down something because you don't know how to use it.
