Product Description

4.5-Amp Corded Jig Saw Has Power, Versatility

Great for anyone who needs or wants to get things done around the house, the Craftsman Evolv 4.5-Amp Corded Jig Saw is perfect for work where precision is demanded. With a 4.5-amp, 800-3000 SPM motor, the saw has the power to cut through many materials, from plywood to particleboard, floor boards to metal. A two-finger trigger switch makes operation easy, while a variable dial allows for precise control of speed. A lock-on switch allows for continuous operation while leaving your hands free to work the saw.

With a number of settings you can customize, the 4.5-Amp Corded Jig Saw can adapt to your project. A base that can move 0 to 45 degrees can adjust left to right for bevel cutting. A three-position orbital action lever lets you select straight action for metal or another setting for aggressive cutting.

  • The Craftsman Evolv 4.5-Amp Corded Jig Saw gives you the precision some jobs demand
  • Its motor is powerful enough to cut through materials including metal, making it a versatile tool for a number of jobs around the home
  • With a two-finger control switch and an intuitive dial that lets you set the speed, the jigsaw is easy to use out of the box
  • Less time spent figuring out the saw leaves you more time for your project
  • The saw comes with a vacuum connection that makes cleanup easy, two blades, an Allen key, edge guide and manual
  • Comes with a one-year warranty

Small saw, could use more power
I had just one job to do and this saw did fine for me. If I was to use it more often I would probably want one with a more powerful motor.

This is the best deal that I found after carefully researching other brands

Comparable to other models out there with close to the same features this one by far exceeded them. It is very heavy duty and seems to be very strong. For the do-it-yourself around the house person I would recommend this product. I had to buy this one to replace the one i borrowed from my neighbor which I broke. He could not believe the price and was very appreciative and said that this one far exceeded what he had.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Very good jigsaw for cutting through wood/cardboard/etc.

I like this one over the longer and taller jigsaw that Sears sells. This one is lighter and won't tire my arm as fast as the other bigger ones and is sharp enough and fast enough to get done most around-the-home jobs.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

MORE TIPS PLEASE

THE JIGSAW WAS LARGER AND HEAVIER THAN I EXPECTED BUT FELT LIKE IT WAS WELL MADE. I BECAME A LITTLE FRUSTRATED WHEN I WAS UNABLE TO SECURE THE BLADE AS TIGHTLY AS I THOUGHT IT SHOULD BE.. PRIOR EXPERIENCE WITH JIG SAWS TAUGHT ME TO FIRMLY SECURE THE BLADE IN ORDER TO FOLLOW YOUR PROJECT OUTLINE. I'VE ONLY HAD THE SAW ABOUT A WEEK AND HAVEN'T HAD A NEED TO ATTEMPT ANY SCROLL WORK. I WILL UPDATE THIS REPORT IF NOT HAPPY WITH .THE WORK PRODUCT.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

A good jigsaw at a good price

You can probably get one that's more expensive and does more things but this one is good for around the home tasks. It has a speed setting on the top and a lock on the trigger to keep it running although I probably wouldn't recommend that. I like that the blade locks in good without requiring a screwdriver. Another more expensive Craftsman jigsaw that costs 2X the price has the blade that easily slips off.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
