Does this come with a blade? How many?

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
Follow-up to my previous "answer". It turns out, the saw I bought was a very cleverly repackaged open-box. The blade that came with the saw I bought is NOT the one that shipped with the saw. My saw came with a Vermont American #30063, which is a U-Shank blade that is not compatible with this saw. Had I known this was a return/open-box, I wouldn't have bought it. Returning to store today to remedy the situation.

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!!!

4.8 Amp Variable Speed Orbital Jig Saw is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 472.

I returned it today and bought a little bit pricier saw and it is still not a great piece of machinery but it cuts straight and the blade stay in place. There was no problem returning it but it wasted some of my time.

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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from UNBELIEVABLY stupid design. To start, I noticed the LED casts decent light on the workpiece - eve... UNBELIEVABLY stupid design. To start, I noticed the LED casts decent light on the workpiece - everywhere but where the cut is! They actually placed the lamp in such a manner that the bladeholder casts a shadow RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE BLADE! So, let's try using it... I'm right-handed. As soon as the there'e any sawdust, the cooling fan outlet on the left side of the saw conveniently BLOWS ALL THE SAWDUST STRAIGHT INTO YOUR FACE! Masking tape to the rescue! Taped over it, in the hope that the air exhaust on the other side will suffice to keep from turning this piece of junk into a smoking piece of junk. BUT WAIT! There's MORE! I began making straight test cuts, and noticed I had to push the saw body along at about a 10 degree angle in order to make a straight cut. Blade drift angle is wrong, AND NOT ADJUSTABLE! I clamped a guide to a test piece just to visualize. Within a couple of INCHES, it had run so far off track I had to stop for fear of snapping the blade. This is, hands-down, the WORST jigsaw I've EVER used.

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.
