Unsafe and very poor design

Whoever designed this Jig saw never tried to use it. The two push buttons needed to start the machine are poorly positioned usually requiring a double handed action. Whereas a variable pressure switch is a single handed operation. The buttons are to small and require too much pressure and do not have a positive feel.
The tendency is to leave the machine running instead of releasing the trigger. The result is when doing scroll cutting around difficult shapes where you would switch off to re position the machine you are tempted to reposition the machine with the motor running.
Not only is it going to slow down your work it is unsafe as you have to press a button to switch the machine off rather than simply releasing a trigger.
These machines should be recalled and a simple trigger action brought back to replace these awful push buttons.
I want my money back.
Do not buy this tool. Have the older brush motor with the trigger.
