I originally bought this saw to cut holes in my computer for extra fans. Skeptical at first with this cheap price but when i tried it, i was amazed that it can cut clean holes and pretty much anything i wanted through metal. It's got more power than you think! Quite comfortable and easy to use too. I dont have a lot of power tools nor experience, but with saw doesnt require much experience. Just pick it up power it on and go. I did a few projects with wood and it cuts through wood cleanly and quickly. I love this tool, never going back to a hand saw or hack saw ever.

I bought this saw about 3 years ago for a Christmas project. I didn't figure on using it much after that, but over the years I've put it to weekly use. I've used it on everything from 2x fir to 1x oak and it has handled it all very well. I use the high quality Bosch blades on mine and it really makes a difference. Maybe some day this saw will wear out and I'll get a high-end model, but it doesn't show any signs of wearing out. It's a good saw for $...

We've had this saw for several years now and it's come in handy for a variety of projects. We've mostly used it on plywood and it's always performed well. For this price, it can't be beat. SKIL 4235 3.2 Amp Variable Speed Jig Saw

By Scott Burright on September 7, 2006
I've had this saw for about 10 years now. It's noisy and underpowered, and it vibrates a lot, especially with wider blades, and the footplate is cheesy stamped metal. But with a thin scrolling blade installed, it makes nice curved cuts. Beats the living heck out of a coping saw.

For fun, I drilled a couple of holes in the footplate and mounted it under a hunk of plywood to use as a poor man's scroll saw.

A thoroughly average tool, better than the current crop of B&D saws that have the plastic wheel for tightening the footplate. It needs a little more amperage, a roller guide, and a better footplate.

I purchased this jig saw as an emergency replacement since I left my saw at home. I used this to build pony walls at a job I was on and the other saw was hours away. It was after hours, Wally World was open, what the heck? I figured I would use this for a weekend, and then put it in the wife's bag of tools. Sometimes she likes to do stuff around the house when I am gone, but I have all the tools. Win win, right? Not so much...

This saw has no power...period. It's just outright slow no matter how good of blade you use. It took me 3 times as long to make cuts with this thing as the DeWalt. I am not trying to compare the two, because this isn't a contractor saw by any means, but my fathers 20 year old Black and Decker blows this thing away too! About the only thing going for it is it's slow. If you really can't control a jig saw that might be useful, but if you can you'll hate it. It's like trying to cut a steak with a spoon. Oh sure you'll eventually cut it, but the steak will be cold by the time you're done.

And finally it went in the trash...I grabbed it to cut a few 2x4's in half and...the case cracked when I was apparently putting too much pressure on it. Did I mention slow?

Just skip this one and move on, there have got to be better options!
