Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Skil jig saw This is a great jigsaw for the money. I have had other Skil jigsaws and this is as good as the others, plenty of power to do scroll cuts in a project or straight cuts in wood!! Has a good feel and balance when cutting stock!! Also has a fast blade change which is very good when you break a blade!! This jigsaw should last through many wood projects and other uses!! February 6, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by quick change blade I bought and tried this for 3 weeks,was not happy with it .I found it very heavy which then made it some what difficult to move around in tight places. December 13, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Piece of Junk After 30 years of faithful service my old school Skill sabre saw simply wore out. Due to the longevity of the previous model I went with Skill for a replacement. What a mistake. The blade will not engage at start up and randomly disengages while cutting a simple straight line.. Start Stop Start Stop. Drives me Nuts. This problem is especially prevalent when cutting round pieces from plywood. I attempted to use it with metal blades to cut a thin metal barrel and same result. Very disappointed. The repair center is an hour away and I find two trips a break even for obtaining a rebuilt replacement . Sooooo diappointing. Skill and the Big Boxes should know that quality like this is what drives some people to Harbor Freight. September 11, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Buy I needed to replace my old broken jigsaw. I wasn't sure of which brand that I wanted. I checked out a few models and purchased this one. I am very happy with my purchase. The jigsaw is very easy to handle. To change blades is a snap and I would recommend this model to anyone. October 30, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A solid value for the money! For occasional use by the average homeowner, it's hard to beat the Skil 4290-02 jigsaw for useful features and convenience. Blade changes are a snap, and the on-board blade storage is especially useful. The Skil jigsaw feels solid and cuts accurately. The built-in dust blower is also a nice feature. For anyone less than a professional, this Skil jigsaw is likely to suit your needs. August 21, 2013
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Good tool, lousy service Use the tool for one day and the base plate bracket broke. Skil said it was not a manufactuing defect. The store where I purchased it refunded my money. October 20, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great for One Handed I bought this saw because I needed an heavy duty saw but without the weight of one. This saw fit the bill and I was able to cut wood with one hand!  August 21, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Versitle Tool I used my new jig saw to cut a design in a 2' x 12' pressure treated board and it worked great!! Did not bog down on the curves. August 21, 2013
