The instructions say to use only a B type blade. Is this equal to a T type blade?

Asked by: Ray
No. If you round off the end of the T types on a grinder they will fit just fine.

6.5 Amp Corded Variable Speed Lightweight Top Handle Jig Saw with Case is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 137.

I purchased this Makita JV0600K to for a Trex composite deck project I am working on and I could not be happier. It replaced an old Black and Decker that I think I paid only about 20 dollars for so you can imagine how much better this saw is. This saw has gobs of power and cuts straight as a arrow. In fact I stopped using the circular saw for cutting the long angles I just cut it with this saw as I could do it more accurately and just as straight if not straighter. I will say I purchased the Bosch T-Shank blades for cutting wood and they are amazing as well. The one con I can think of is all my old blades do not work on this saw but who cares blades are cheap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeping up my faith in Makita I have owned and used many Makita tools over the years, with some a couple of decades old. It was nice to find the quality of this tool meeting my expectations. The included case is solid, and nicely leaves enough room to leave a blade attached. One rather underrated feature is the blade lock. No muss, no fuss, no complicated levers and rollers and latches - just like your favorite recip saw, twist to release. After it gently ejects the blade (spring-loaded, but not so much you lose the blade), the lock STAYS OPEN, allowing you to fit a new blade with one hand. Once inserted, the lock clicks shut around the blade, giving you a positive indication that it is ready to go. Short answer: this is a sturdy tool, with a blissfully simple and intuitive blade lock. Thank you, Makita.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jig saw! There were several reasons why I bought, and love, this jig saw: For one, it feels very safe to use compared to my old jig saw. When I grab the handle to pick up the saw, my hand doesn't accidentally hit the trigger because they built in plenty of room to grab it further back on the handle. I'm petite (about 112 lbs) and needed something that wasn't too heavy and this one is just right. The Makita is powerful and seems quite well made. It's a real pleasure to use. We bought a set of Bosch blades to go with it and they are a great complement to the jig saw (which is the 'T-shank' type of blade). It wasn't the most nor least expensive, but seemed to be a good value. I haven't used all the settings or features yet, but was pleased to be able to get right to work with this tool for my basic jig saw project needs!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The jigsaw for me! I had a 30 year old Black & Decker hand-me-down that finally "gave up the ghost." My Dad was kind enough to replace it for me with an inexpensive jig saw (a 6.1 amp saw by the green brand). While the cheap tool had lots of options, it was frustrating to use -- didn't cut straight and was hard to control. I took it back to HD, got a store credit and applied it towards this Makita 6.5 amp jig saw. The Makita was significantly more expensive, but it is the real deal. This Makita cuts straight, has lots of power, low vibration, quick change blade, vacuum dust port, and is easy to control. It's worth the extra money! I'm glad to have another quality Makita tool in the workshop. Happy that it comes with a case but I wish the case had more space to store all my blades. This came with one ripping blade, but I already had lots of blades.
