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.

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.

I have used a lot of different brands of jig saws in my days. This is a very good saw for this low of a price. I was really happy with the purchase and still use this quite often.
It could be that my old jig saw is 45 years old. However, my new Evolv cuts so smooth and effortlessly. Not to mention I can connect it to my shop vac and reduce the dust. ( I have a bucket head vac from **********, it has a small diameter hose that connects perfectly to the Evolv) I highly recommend this jigsaw to those looking to save a little money on a new saw. Mine was less that $40.00.
This jig saw did the trick. I was looking for something with a little bit more power but the budget wouldn't allow so I purchased this instead and it did the trick. I would recommend this to any home owner.
Purchased this saw for home use, to handle everyday repairs and household projects. It is light weight and easy to use. Cutting abilities with blade in product was adequate to handle shortening boards needed for shelves we were constructing. Replacement blades are available for projects we will do in the future. I recommend purchasing different blades when sawing particle boards to reduce rough edges. It is a handy tool for the home.
I needed a jig saw for cutting out notches in 2 x 8s for a pergola I was constructing. It worked very well for this job. It came with two blades which was great since I accidently broke one. Would recommend this
