        I’m a first time user of a jig saw, and I have to say this was perfect for a beginner. It was easy to understand instructions, change blades and I loved that it came with a case to keep everything in!

        It broke the first time we used it! There is a little pin holding the blade in. It popped out and wouldn’t stay in after the first use. Very disappointed. We exchanged it for another brand.

        I like it only it needs a look so that when your cutting it doesn't move from side to side

        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is one of the best jig saws I’ve used. Just as efficient as advertised.

          Great Value
          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was looking for a jigsaw replacement and didn't want another proprietary battery. Ryobi has locations in Anderson SC, so I decided to buy local. As a result, I selected the Ryobi jigsaw 6.1 Amp for a custom molding project. I expected a B&D quality, but it is the best value for a tool that I have purchased. It had a great grip, is light, and was easy to use right out of the convenient zip bag. Plus, its scroll settings enabled unique cuts. I plan to buy other Ryobi tools.

            stripped base screw and cheap parts
            Very cheaply made saw with cheap metal parts. FIRST, the speed of the blade constantly slows itself as a means of "auto setting" the speed it needs to match the hardness of the material of something. Its garbage, just leads to a poor inconsistent cutting performance. SECOND, the allen screw used to loosen or tighten the base to allow adjustment of the cutting angle stripped first time i tried to loosen and tighten it to square the base. Pretty much taking a loss and tossing whole product out

              Great jigsaw
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought this to cut a piece of 1/8 inch plastic from my son's car that was dragging on the ground. Inserted the metal/wood blade and the and the saw cut through the plastic like butter. Couldn't be happier!

                  Saw is ok, guide does not stay in place
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have a few other hand tools from Ryobi that I am happy with so far. I chose this saw over others in the price range for the cutting guide. The vibrations of the saw kept shaking the screw that holds the guide out rendering that feature useless. Could not get it it tight enough to stay in while the saw was in use. The quick blade change feature was handy, and the saw did an ok job of cutting the 1X4s I was working with, but the cuts were not as precise as they would have been had the guide stayed in place. I will be returning the saw, and getting a higher end tool with a guide that will lock in place.

                    Great little jigsaw
                    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Does the job, half the price of since of the other guys. The light makes it hard to see pencil lines, so I sometimes have to stop cutting to make sure I'm still on the line
