Replaced my last one which finally gave up the ghost after many years of abuse .
Bought this after reading several reviews. I trust the b&d brand, having had a power drill of their for over 20 years which stil works fine. This is easy to set up and makes short work of planking and timber.
The variable speed comes through the trigger pressure of the jigsaw itself and not a dial which makes it very easy to use and very precise. Also the bottom plate adjusts allowing for angles to be cut. In typical amazon fashion it came a day before the expected delivery date and was packaged in its own box within an amazon box so very well protected.
Just what i was looking for at the right price.

Have tried cheaper ones before and always thought it was me who couldn’t cut straight – until a friend tried it. Now i can cut straight too – using a black & decker.
When cutting a splitter out of my van outside of my house, i was approached by a traffic warden. He asked me to move it from the double yellows outside my house. When he saw i had this fantastic cutter in my hand he moved on. Great parking pig deterrent.
Great price, for the odd job lots of features.
Prompt delivery and does as it says it should. Blade that came with it broke but works fine with new blades.
Purchased this jigsaw to replace my “steam driven” wolf which was 30 years old, how things have moved oni found the variable speed control a great asset; do not know how i did without such a refinement in all these years. Found no problem with securing the blades providing that the grooved steady wheel is adjusted so that the back of the bladed has minimum clearance with the grove in the steady wheel. All in all a fantastic power jigsaw, highly recommended.
I bought this jigsaw to aid my (made up as i go along) carpentry project of adapting a 100 year old church pew. The wood is very dense and there have been double thicknesses of wood to get through in some places, plus nails, but it’s cut like a knife through butter. It feels really stable and i’m looking forward to cutting up more stuff.
I was a bit wary when i saw the blade holding set up on this jigsaw, i’d had it on a previous saw and it didn’t last very long as the fixing block broke up. On reflection, i think this was because i didn’t set up the blade support mechanism properly. Just used this item for the first time, using airflow from the fan to clear swarf from the cutting area is a good idea and works well. Trying to ensure that the blade is at right angles to the foot plate is a bit fiddly as there is no indicator on the [plate to work to.
Good value, has made life easier when it comes to laying floors and other jobs around the house. Would recommendarrived on time.
Ideal for light jobs such as plywood and laminate flooring cutting, although probably would not cope well with thick timber.
A good jig saw just wish it had arrived with a case to store it in other than that it does the job that i bought it for nothing more to say really.
As good as they get, excellent jigsaw, very happy with purchase, comes with one wood blade, in my opinion good quality product.
A good little jig -saw and i am very pleased with it.
Not used it much yet, but the little that i have used it has been fine. Every confidence it will work well.
Whats more fun than i drill, a jig saw that’s what. Every little is now actually a little project with cuts made easier and better than i could by hand.
This jigsaw was exactly what i wanted and it made light work of the project i was working on, highly satisfied.
It does what it says on the box. Much better than my old black and decker jigsaw.
Fitting blade is a little more fiddly than with the old model it was bought to replace. The variable speed is a good feature. Overall, pleased with purchase. Black and decker ks600e jigsaw – var speed 450w.
Perfect for the odd diy job at home. No complaints – seems sturdy and has battled through many of our jobs.
