There was a question about a vacuum port.... The Makia 4329 with allen bolt blade retainer has one.

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

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

Does a great job at a reasonable price. Many of the features are implemented in pretty basic ways, like the way that the bevel angle is adjusted, but it is quite capable of performing pretty much everything higher end units do. Unlike some of the higher end jigsaws that have dedicated knobs for adjusting some of the settings, a supplied wrench is needed to adjust the bevel angle and to move the base back to allow for flush cuts. The wrench worked fine though and it had no trouble holding the setting. The variable speed dial seemed a bit odd at first as I was used to using the trigger to adjust the speed like I did on my older units (the trigger is on-off only). I actually liked it, though, as I could set it and forget it, not having to worry about the pressure on the trigger for extended cuts. It performs well on both freehand cutting and with a guide. We cut a number of circular wooden plaques out of solid poplar boards using a circle cutting attachment and the results were excellent. Very smooth and easy cutting and the guide holder was rock solid (see pics). Plenty of power both ripping and cross-cutting which is really helpful when cutting circles in wood where you get to do both. The unit does not come with a dust catching bag like a lot of other jigsaws, but has an opening to connect a small vacuum hose. No mechanism to direct air from the motor to blow dust from the blade during cutting appears to be included. Since we use these often to cut delicate veneers, I ordered the optional base cover. It took more than 2 weeks to get it via online sources, but it fit perfectly, stays put and works great. The jigsaw's case could stand to be a little larger to allow a case or two of spare blades to be stored in it. There's plenty of space inside to store loose blades, but keeping them in a case makes identification of the tpi and type much easier. It took a bit of practice to get used to changing the blades, since the blade guard seemed to be in the way, but once I got the hang of it, it was really easy and fast. Way easier and far more reliable than some of the older jigsaws I've used. All in all, we're really happy with the performance if this .

Used this to cut 2x6 treated lumbar for a pergola. Worked as expected, easy to use, steered straight for the most part. The only issue was not necessarily with the unit as it was with the wood. Cutting across the grain resulted in clean 90 degree angle cuts. Cutting with the grain however the grain pulled the blade to a slight angle, which in my case was not critical. Learned that if cutting with the grain, it was better to cut near the mark to allow for blade wandering, then cut on the mark to get a 90 degree cut - for future projects.

Makita has been a great brand. Perhaps this is a fluke but the shaft bent that holds the blade and started striking the housing
