Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 17 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by best purchase this year easy to read instructions, it worked well and and did the job. Good value for the money December 23, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by A Decent Jigsaw Not a bad product. The foot does not hold angle especially well, nor does the blade backing engage always, but cut quality is very good if you're patient and power is more than adequate. I preferred my older Skil, but the plastic housing cracked where the foot attached (and motor finally gave up the ghost). It accepts both U and T blades, which is a big plus. U were mandatory for me, as I have a large inventory of them. November 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by skil jigsaw this is one of the best jigsaws i ever bought. the ease of changing blades and the acurate cutting guides are just not found in other jigsaws at this price. i highly recommend this tool. June 22, 2007
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great for the hobbyist Purchased this jigsaw a while back and so far as performed admirably when needed. Lacks a bit of the high end power to cut through thicker/wet wood, but for most jobs has been great. The pivoting head is amazing and makes circular cuts a breeze. For the value, a great buy.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great easy blade changing feature Love this jig saw, the knob on the top of the handle is great for giving more control over guiding the saw. The easy, quick blade change feature saves time, frustration and cuts! February 7, 2012
