WOOD magazine review

Top Tool fully loaded jigsaw

Review Summary

This saw was Top Tool in a test of 10 corded jigsaws in the October 2014 issue of WOOD. This saw hit home runs nearly across the board: highly accurate cutting with no blade deflection, easy blade changes with a self-ejecting clamp, good cutline visibility with a strong blower and LED light, powerful motor, low vibration, a shoe you tilt tool-free, and an ergonomic handle.
The variable-speed dial is mounted on the bottom of the variable trigger, though, making it somewhat difficult to see the markings and grip the trigger. And a plastic shield that wraps around the front of the saw clogged with dust, creating a cloud illuminated by the LED; we prefer cutting with this removed.
