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.

best saw on the market for the price of 30 dollars this craftsman 4.5amp jig saw prodly will cut through 3/4inch plywood with very little effort and this jigsaw even cuts through 3/4 inch metal sheeting with ease i have owned my craftsman evolv for about 7months i use it ever day this is one of the most reliable jigsaw iv owned. and this jigsaw has many features that allow for precise cutting i highly recommend the craftsman evolv to anyone looking for a very reliable and very durible jig saw for a resonable price!!
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

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 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.
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.
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.
