Where can I get more blades?

I look everywhere for a blade that can cut through metal still could not find any
Asked by: Robbin
the only blades that work correctly are the ridgid universal t-shank blades, from homedepot but of course they are not selling them at the moment.. this is rediculious.... if they sale ryobi work tools then they should have the correct blades to go with it... I am sending my ryobi back and going to Lowes to find me a jigsaw but they are just as bad!!! I have looked for the ridgid blades online and no where are they selling them. WHAT IS UP WITH THIS!!!

Which blades are compatible, the clamp doesn't turn all the way?

I bought the Bosch blade pack as well but when installing the blade the change blade clamp will not turn all the way back to the same position as when the Ryobi blade is installed. The "T" on the Bosch blades is a bit larger and preventing the clamp from fully turning back. Is it still safe to use even though it does not turn back the entire way? The Bosch blades are here: http://www.homedepot.com/p/Bosch-T-Shank-Wood-Metal-Jigsaw-Blades-15-Pack/202242135
Asked by: Riv111
Home Depot had the blades on their website at one time, but now they are discontinued.

What thickness of wood will this cut?

What thickness of wood will this cut? What thickness of aluminium will this cut? Thanks.
Asked by: Jakers
I am having issues with this unit barely cutting through 1 1/4" MDF shelf. Thickness limit here is similar to what you can do with a manual jig saw. Don't expect this to cut 2x4's

4.8-Amp Variable Speed Orbital Jig Saw is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 170.

I earlier used Dewalt and Milwaukee, but after a year and a half of construction work I find Ryobi is as good - if not better - than many of the big-name products. Ryobi is robust and lasts a long time. And far cheaper! However, this particular product has got a problem with the locking lever of the bottom plate. I lock it at an angle but as soon as I start cutting, the lever gets disengaged and the plate shifts. The result is that the cutting angle changes and my work is ruined. I am going to take this product back to Home Depot for an exchange. This does not in any way reduce my loyalty for Ryobi. I still stand by their range of products.

I'm on the fence about this one. 2 cons: T blades are very difficult for me to install. After learning the hard way I always put on my mechanix gloves and get ready for a fight when installing a new blade. I constantly have to check the alignment of the blade with the base to make sure it stays at zero degrees. I would look at another model.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No Blades Great product, that is until you need replacement blades that is. Good luck finding them, Home Depot doesn't sell them and they take special T blades only sold under Ryobi. Good luck online too, you'll spend the same amount as the saw!!!

Even though Rhyobe states that this saw is compatible to all blades, it is not! Returned this product strictly for this reason. Otherwise I enjoyed the versatility d this saw.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Can't buy blades Went to go to buy new blades for this jigsaw and It turns out the blades cost more than the saw itself. Home Depot also doesn't sell the blades. Waste of money.
