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 335.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Blade lock is crooked so cuts crooked First time I used it for a last minute project and it kept cutting to the left in a curve, even with a guide. Ended up just eyeballing it and making minor corrections and needing to stop and start. Will be returning it tomorrow since it is incapable of cutting a straight line. Think it may be due to the lock pin being set a little too far so the blade faces at a slight angle.

I've never used a jigsaw before purchasing this product so this review is from a rookies perspective. There was very little assembly and it was super easy to use! The price was fair and it worked great for my small projects!

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 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 got this for a one time project to cut a hole in countertop for an electric cooktop. I normally use other brand power tools and for me it made no sense to spend more money on tool that i need for one time. The battery one costs more. The saw performed great and project is complete. It comes with one saw blade. The cord is long and gives enough room for maneuvering. It didn't scratch the countertop. No cons to report.

The chuck was difficult to open and did not hold a cutting blade very well. Also the pivot on the saw to set angles was very poorly constructed, the cutting action was also very poor even with a high end blade. I ended up returning the unit and used my 30 year old Craftsman saw instead. its loud and heavy but it works
