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!!!

I had a simple board of plywood which needed to be cut for a decorative piece for a company holiday party. The jigsaw was easy to use. The handle is comfortable and the weight was light enough to hold and maneuver through curves, but also heavy enough to feel sturdy. I really liked the the way the speed is easily controlled with the control buttons as well as the trigger button. That button is smooth to give more control over speed. The only thing I felt was missing was a way to attach a bag to catch the wood dust.

Directions are fine, though to find the diagrams you have to look at the end, after all the other languages. Cut through particle board smoothly, turning radius is okay. Angled cuts work, but you're at a loss if you need exact, reproducible angles... No stops. Not a very good choice for tight spaces... Which should be obvious, but it did pose a challenge when I found myself in one. Overall, I'm satisfied and will stick with this guy as long as it lasts.

I have a number of Ryobi tools, most of which I've been very happy with for the price. However, this jigsaw has been an unbelievable disappointment. Just cutting through 1/2" plywood, the basic expectation of a decent jigsaw, was difficult. The tool jerked all over the place, the blade wouldn't remain @ 90 degrees, and therefore made completely sloppy cuts. I've tried upgrading the blade, with no improvement. Spend a little more on a better quality jigsaw and skip this one.

I earlier used Dewalt and Milwaukee, but after a year and a half of construction work I find Ryobi is as good - if not better - than many of the big-name products. Ryobi is robust and lasts a long time. And far cheaper! However, this particular product has got a problem with the locking lever of the bottom plate. I lock it at an angle but as soon as I start cutting, the lever gets disengaged and the plate shifts. The result is that the cutting angle changes and my work is ruined. I am going to take this product back to Home Depot for an exchange. This does not in any way reduce my loyalty for Ryobi. I still stand by their range of products.

Once the "one" blade they provide you wears out, the company says buy T shank blades, but none of them work, they won't lock in. Then you wait in the return line at Home Depot (all China made all the time) DO NOT BUY THIS UNLESS YOU ARE GOING TO USE IT FOR ONE JOB AND TOSS IT, OTHERWISE, BUY ANOTHER ONE AND MAKE SURE THEY PROVIDE REPLACMENT BLADES.

The saw will not stay in a locked position consequently I get cuts that are angled when they are supposed to be straight up and down. Poor quality. I will try to fix it myself . I have had it about a month and used it once. It does not even come close to meeting expectations. The quality is something you would expect from a dollar store. As a matter of information I have owned about 6 of this type saw in my lifetime.
