Good choiceI bought this ages ago, but wanted to give it a good try out before reviewing it. I can say it is the best jigsaw I have ever had. It cuts quickly and smoothly, and the the work light is the icing on the cake. Highly recommended

Nick StroudA fine tool. I've tried the rest but this is the best to date. The soft start is AAAAAAAAAA++++ and the work light is so useful in poor site light.

Best jigsawThis is a tool I wouldn't be without - fabulous on everything I've thrown at it. Forget nicking tiles with a grinder and diamond use this with a tile blade on slow speed and start cutting tiles accurately and relatively cleanly to fit curves. Great saw with built in light to show you the cut line. Eats timber depending on blade - no need to touch red hot blade to be able to change it. Well thought out for the trade.
