DEWALT DW331 Jigsaw : simply the best!

Bought this tool to shorten a door after floor was tiled. The unit is supplied with one blade that was too rough for the job. So bought a blade set and the job got done. The saw comes with a plastic blade protector which you can see through while making cuts as well as a dust exhaust to connect to a vacuum. T bladechanging is a doddle. Sturdy and well built this is a great tool.

Really great tool but then it would be it’s a dewalt.

DeWalt DW331 Jigsaw

  • Keyless blade change system accepts T- shank blades
  • Tool free adjustable shoe
  • 3-position orbital action controls
  • Dust blower
  • Tapered saw blade roller

. Easy to use and capable of tackling any woodwork job set before it. Like most power tools, its only disadvantage is a trailing power lead. Whilst this model didn’t come with a dust bag, i considered that attachment as unimportant and secondary to buying a good product at the right price – this model succeeded on both counts.

Love it still working and going strong red to get advice on the best blades.

I use a jigsaw on a daily basis and have a number of different professional makes but none have compared with the dewalt. With the blades i also had from amazon it is the best kit i can imagine. Oh and the price is unbeatable.

DeWalt DW331 Jigsaw : Bought for my husband as he is a tradesman and uses only quality tools. Came with case which he wanted.

Had to finally replace my very old makita, just started using this machine, feels solid and quality. Anti splinter insert didn’t arrive in the package, however, need the machine, so won’t return it just for this omission. Does operate well and inspires confidence when cutting expensive material, don’t skimp and buy cheap, it will cost you in the long run.

This is a very good quality tool. Powerful and easy to control. I recommend it for the keen diyer.

My old jigsaw packed up and i replaced it with this. Feels great quality and doesn’t vibrate like my old one.

A great saw bought at the right price. As accurate as you want it to be and hardly any vibration. Trigger action excellent with a slow start, easy blade change. Admittedly this replaced a much older jigsaw but the difference was remarkable. I would recommend this to anyone.

Alot better than trying to cut large sheets of ply, with a normal saw.

First class as you would expect .

The way the blade locks in place is superb. . No more fiddling with allen keys.

Very power even with through 135 thickness timber. The blades stay cutting vertically and not wandering as a cheaper tool would do.

Up to dewalt’s usual standard.

Superb jigsaw just oozes build quality. Dewalt are a cut above,you may pay more but you earn it back as it will far outlast all other makes of tool.

Haven’t used it yet but i know it will do what i want.

It wasn’t clear description which leads to mistake.

Accurate, solid and as you come to expect from dewalt.

Just what i needed, most of my power tools are dewalt they are so reliable and great quality. I got solid wood flooring for my kitchen and bought this jigsaw to cut the wood, like a knife through butter so easy to use.

The plastic guard for the front of the saw doesn’t actually fit. However, it makes light work of what we’ve thrown at it so far, a great price too.

Usual dewalt top grade build quality. Would have given the full 5 stars if the jigsaw had a work light.

    1. I should have purchesed a dewalt years ago. Only disapointment is that i don’t get long to play with it. Every job i ask of it is done. The adjustable base, cutting swing and blower are just so obvious, i’m blown away. I’ve tried free hand cutting some cheap laminate floor along its length. – no i don’t work for dewalt – no this isn’t a paid review but it really is a nice tool to work with.

    1. Now owned one of these for just under 3 years. Light diy use, using dewalt, or quality pattern blades. Out of the box the footplate was out of true on the 90 degree setting; with some effort got his trued up. After about a year, of infrequent use, the machine stared throwing out the blades on the full pedulum setting; thus i avoided this setting, as time has gone on i have had to use it on less and less pedulum settings due to same issue; until today when it now throws the blades out on the non pedulum setting rendering the jigsaw about as good as useless. Difficult to find where to seek advice, or to contact dewalt, about this issue, via dewalt website. I thought dewalt tools were the best?.I have been renovating my own house for 3 years; at the beginning of this process decided not to buy any more cheap tools. As when cutting a piece of work top i ruined it using a cheaper jigsaw (slanted cut) which mean’t i had to buy another length of work top; £140 error. Also batteries going flat quickly with gutless cheap drill drivers. The very old bosch jigsaw i have; although limited in function, has gone on working for 15 years now without problems. Strikes me the dewalt brand is no better than much cheaper items of the same ilk; blogs on various sites back this up. Suffice it to say no more dewalt gear for me and will not recommend the brand.

  7. This is a heavy machine compared to others but its weight gives stability which allows for easy straight cuts etc. However carrying case was very dusty and scuffed. Probably a one-off but needed the jigsaw urgently so didn’t have time to contact amazon to complain/ get replacement.

      1. Compared to the bosch and riobi that i’ve had in the past it’s brilliant.

    Only used a couple of times but first impressions are great. Light weight and easy to set up and use. Have used many other top brands but dewalt by far the best.

    1. This is a very solid, well made machine let down by a couple of issues:1 the fan to blow away dust from the cut would have been a great idea apart from the fact that the fan is driven from the motor shaft which means it’s speed is dependent on how fast the blade is going. At high speed it clears the dust away just fine but at slow speed it just does not cope and the dust piles up making the cutting line impossible to see. 2 a light to illuminate just in front of the blade would have made it easier to see the cutting line, unless you are cutting outside or in a very brightly lit room, rarely the case, you always seem to get a shadow on the critical spot. Some very cheap machines come with a light so why could de walt not provide one. Even, if it made the machine a bit more expensive, it would be well worth it.
