has anyone else had issues with this saw and the blade sitting correctly? my blade will not sit straight, it appears the whole mechanism is off by several degrees, therefore resulting in cuts always veering to the left. any thoughts on how to fix this? or is it possible that it is user error? i am not new to power tools by any means, but cannot get the blade in straight to save my life.
Asked by: Tracey
Don't buy it! I have the same problem, .. I guess is cheap made(you get what you pay for), and they don't care about fixing the problem!

Where can I get more blades?

I look everywhere for a blade that can cut through metal still could not find any
Asked by: Robbin
the only blades that work correctly are the ridgid universal t-shank blades, from homedepot but of course they are not selling them at the moment.. this is rediculious.... if they sale ryobi work tools then they should have the correct blades to go with it... I am sending my ryobi back and going to Lowes to find me a jigsaw but they are just as bad!!! I have looked for the ridgid blades online and no where are they selling them. WHAT IS UP WITH THIS!!!

Customer Reviews

4.8 Amp Corded Variable Speed Orbital Jig Saw is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 603.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from We bought this saw to cut precision holes in new... We bought this saw to cut precision holes in new wall paneling. It worked very well, gave the control I needed and the project came out fine. For larger projects I recommend the next higher power level but for small, consistent cuts, this saw did the trick.Instructions, once you follow the style of the manual, are clear. The saw is intuitive to use and this saw seems high quality overall.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not for cutting straight. I was overall generally happy when I first purchased this tool: low price, powerful motor, adjustable speed and orbit, and adjustable angle. However, the biggest drawback with this tool is that the base is only held on with one bolt with a cam-action lock. When you want to cut a straight line using the base against a guide, the tool can still pivot even though the base is perfectly aligned with the guide. This causes the blade to wander regardless of how thick or high quality it is. No amount of tightening will get rid of the +/- 5 degree pivoting that occurs. Even on a short 4" cross cut, you will get a wavy edge. I have tried the same model from a neighbor, and his does the same thing. I find this intriguing since all the other Ryobi jigsaws, even the cordless version, have 2 bolts holding the base, yet this unit is still being sold and has not been revised.

Very sturdy design which makes for nice cuts. I purchased this to replace a black and Decker similarly priced and this one is much much better. I use the cheaper saws for projects where they may take some abuse and possibly get damaged. I would compare this ryobi to my much more expensive Bosch in terms of quality. Pros: cuts, good control, long cord, decent blade retainer. Cons: on off trigger not variable although the speed is variable with a knob and no blade storage on the saw. No biggies but something worth mentioning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Purchase! No Regrets I'm familiar with using a jig saw but have not owned one until now. I bought this jig saw for home repairs and specifically, to install bamboo flooring. This jig saw does a great job cutting through the bamboo (with appropriate blade of course). I like the T blade design and I understand why Ryobi is phasing out the old fast release style. I was told that other companies have begun following the safety change too. I like the compact size of the tool. My hands don't fatigue while in use and the light guide is very helpful. I opted for this corded model because I don't want to worry about a battery dying in the middle of my projects. I can pull my hair up, secure boobs, safety goggles on, plug in and start cutting.

I cut a butcher block counter top and the saw blade drifted into my non-work area of the piece I was working on. Almost ruined a $500 block of wood from a $40 saw. Luckily I saw that the blade wasn't cutting straight and stopped my cut. If you need something to just cut with and do not need a straight or accurate cut this saw could be for you.

Adjustable speeds and settings are super nice and works on the fly. Just don’t really care how the deck lock is. Can’t tell if it’s dead 90 or off a little. Other then that. It’s great. Will definitely work for my everyday life not everyday use. Did the floors in my house using only the jig saw.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from We needed it to cut out for a bathroom vanity... We needed it to cut out for a bathroom vanity sink. The counter was about 3/4 inch plus some supports at about 3/4 inch and the saw did a good job without any hang-ups. Would recommend it for small jobs of this type. We used the blade that came with the saw, but other blades available for rougher or finer cuts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very impressed Love love the jigsaw! Easy to use, great price and love all the features. I love that it has a light, you don't see that alot in that price range. The only complaint that made me not make it 5 stars is the blade it comes with. Mine is already warped. Overall a great deal
