      Many Desired Features
      My jig saw was dying. Per my research this Craftsman jigsaw had more desired features than any other jigsaw in my price range of $60 to $80. Tool-less blade change; accepts T & U shank blades; LaserTrac light; LED worklight; 2-way sawdust removal; 5 position orbital action; 6 amp motor; variable speed range; 360 degree scroll action and D-handle and scroll handle. Still a couple of reviews criticized the blade clamp as having a short life. I handled this concern by waiting until the jigsaw went on sale; then buying the Sears "Purchase-Protect" 3 year replacement plan so that my total cost was still within my budget. Another review criticized blade performance but said Bosch blades were best. My test confirmed that. I first cut a 2X4 using an old 12 tooth blade with the control lever shifted to "Smooth" and the variable speed dial at 6. After only cutting 1" into the 2x4 with the laser continuously on my cut line the blade had floated to the left 1/16". Next was a Sears blade, the 6 tooth blade that came with the jigsaw. After 1" it had floated off the cut line to the left by 1/32". Next was a Bosch wood 6 tooth blade. After 1" it was right on my cut line. Next was a Bosch wood 10 tooth blade. It also stayed right on the cut line. I was impressed. A jigsaw is really not intended to be used to cut through 2x 4s. I believe this jigsaw will get the job done for me and I'll stick with Bosch blades.

      Another worthless tool by Craftsman

      This jigsaw seems heavy, sturdy, and well built (and that is how I made the mistake buying it) but wait until you start using it. Ergonomics put on this tool are just HORRIBLE.... placement and operating the switches / buttons is unnacceptable. This tool is totally unbalanced (no matter what you cut against) - it vibrates a lot, ....is flimsy and badly designed. I feel it can become a hazard to operate it (like my $9.99 jig saw bought from Freight Harbor Tools store). The two blades that came with it have been warped / bent and unusuable any more (after a 2-3 minute of operation for each blade - no force applied other than trying to hold the tool straight and avoid vibrations). The Operator's Manual does not provide many important information (such as when Scrolling how to avoid the back of the blade touching the guide), has many errors, and does not explain well.

      Last, this tool seems to have a short life expectancy - it is not worth the hassle of trying to figure out how to operate it, feel unsafe while using it, contacting Craftsman when it breaks down, etc, etc.

      Have bought 3 other Craftsman tools (electric) in the last 4-5 years and all 3 have given me problems (from malfunctioning to not working at all). This tools is going back to Sears and will never buy again Craftsman. It is truly a shame how good-quality company it was 15-20 years ago and what it has become! I have lost any trust on this company!

      Good Job and Good Price

      I had to replace my 25 year old Craftsman scrolling sabre saw and this was the one. It looks like it is a class above the old one with the additional features. The only disappointment, no flush cutting. But that is barely a negative feature for this saw.

      Great Product

      I researched quite a bit but am on a tight budget!! I found this and being Craftsman knew I couldn't go wrong!! I was really amazed at how easy it was to use and how close to my cuts I could get without having to sand my **** off!!!

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Very nice sabre saw

      I purchased this saw to replace a very old Craftsman sabre saw that was falling apart due to its age. This new saw does more and is easy to handle. The laser makes cutting a straight line easy. The light weight also adds to the ease of use. I would recommend this to anyone.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Great saw for the money!

      I have owned many saber saws, but this little gem is the best I have ever owned. It is very versatile and delivers a quick clean cut. You can't go wrong for the money!

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Saw will not cut straight

      This is a very nice saw but it will not cut straight.  The saw veers to the left no matter what I do.  I change the blade, I try cutting other materials,  same thing.  What giod is the laser if it is pounting toward 12 o'clock but my cut line is heading toward 10 o'clock?

      Not as good as my Craftsmen professional model that was 33 years old

      The blade does not remain perpendicular to the surface of the board as you cut a curve
