Does this use t-shank blades?

Asked by Fauzia January 4, 2019

Answers

It uses something similar but it will not fit standard blades. Even Ryobi jigsaw blades don’t fit this Ryobi jigsaw. This is a one time use tool. Nobody I can find sells blades for this throwaway tool. Enjoy the 1 blade it comes with because it is the only one that fits. I spent some time on tool forums and no one can find replacement blades either.

Tool doesn’t come with a battery?

Asked by Msole November 28, 2017

Answers

No. The tool is sold without a battery. In most cases, Home Depot has a sale in which if you purchase a battery tool kit, the tool comes free. My package came with 2 batteries, the charger , a bag and the saw . I bought mine for under $120 bucks but that’s cause I had mine delivered. It’s cheaper if you do an in store pick up.

Can a left handed person use this easily?

Hello Dutch and thank you for the question. Yes! This saw is designed for both left and right handed use. Thank you!

The brushless P524 is double the price. Is there really that much of a difference in the use of it to pay double the cost?

Hi Elise. Whit a long enough blade it would cut one. I would suggest a reciprocating saw or circular saw for cutting something that large. Thanks for asking. Greg

Great replacement for my 40-year old Craftsman scroll saw. First use was with a 24 tpi blade to cut a 1/8" thick metal decorative ring for my wood burning stove stovepipe. Worked great and did the job where a hacksaw couldn't be used. Next step was to cut a copper sheet background which the jig saw made quick work of. Got the jig saw as part of the June 2020 Ryobi 18-Volt One + promotion. T-style blade was easy to insert and lock. A nice switch from my 40-year old Craftsmen corded scroll saw that has seen a lot of use over the years. The Ryobi Jig Saw will now be my go-to tool for jig saw work. The jig saw is part of my ever growing group of Ryobi tools both corded and cordless.

Does not cut straight lines
Set up the jigsaw to do test cuts. Could not cut a straight line. Every cut turned to the right, not matter how hard I tried to stay on the line. Turned the saw over and noticed the blade was turned the the right. Removed the blade and reinstalled straight. Ran the saw without cutting and turned the saw over to look at the blade and it was turned to the right again. Returned the jigsaw for full refund. I'll be looking for a new corded jigsaw from a different manufacturer.

Defective Assembly
Very disappointed with this product. On my first cut, the blade veered noticeably to the left. I thought it may have something to do with the pressure I was applying to the saw or to the guide I was using. Checked all my measurements, went to make the cut, and once again had a noticeable veer left. When I inspected the blade, I noticed the blade was now bent slightly, and I assumed that the blade that came with the saw had been of cheap quality. I ran out to Home Depot and got higher quality blades with the right TPI for my project. Got home, set everything up, checked my measurements, applied slow and even pressure.... and once again, my cut goes left. This time, I took the blade out and inspected further. Turns out that the guide assembly is out of alignment with the toolless blade clamp. These things are designed with a small spring in the guide assembly to allow a bit of lateral motion, which is what allows you to make curved cuts. But in my jigsaw, the spring is overloaded to one side, so there is no give to the right. Conversely, the guide assembly has plenty of give to the left, so every time the blade encounters resistance the guide assembly veers left. Very unhappy, as I've now ruined some good wood and had to complete my project with some poor workarounds.

I love this thing. It does quick, precise cuts, and works great when you need just a little piece cut off of something, you pop in the battery and it does its thing. It is pretty lightweight and very easy to handle.

Love this jig saw and that it is battery operated - we have several Ryobi tools now and 2 batteries so I always have one charged. Especially love the light and guide - my old jig saw didn't have anything like this. Blades are extremely easy to switch out, a big plus as my old one I had to screw in. I do a lot of wood projects for our painting party business and this is a really good one for me.

I have great luck with Ryobi tools in general. This jigsaw is just another winner for me. I have to say though that I am just a home tinkerer & DIY guy. Probably not rugged enough for professional or even heavy use but works just fine for everything I want to use it for. I am a Ryobi fan...
