Simple, does the job, great value and lightweight. Gave four stars because it could do with more blades, so i got bosch 8 piece t shank jigsaw blade set (http://www. Uk/gp/product/b001416ctc?ref_=cm_cr_ryp_prd_ttl_sol_11) which fit perfectly. Package and delivery 5 stars for seller.
It’s ok for the price, cuts through thick bits of wood with some elbow grease. There was one blade included that i am still using. A lot more noisier and vibration than expected which tends to throw off the cut. So i wouldn’t say you could get a really accurate cut with it. The wire is long enough for general use. I think if you were looking for a very accurate cut, a better machine would be a better investment.
This is a nice little light duty diy saw, but definitely should never be over-loaded, just go slowly and let it do the cutting, take it easy and never ever force it,when it arrives it will be very badly set up with a poor blade, so buy some decent blades to use with it, throw away the duff blade that comes with it. To set it up properlyfirst, fit a good blade in the jaws [the front plastic cover will ‘pop out’ ok if you are gentle with a small screwdiver, but do remember to pop it back in when the blade is in placethen turn the saw over, turn it upside down and slacken the hex nuts on the base, and push the roller assembly forward until it’s against the back of the blade, to give it support and direction when cuttingthis is all not done in the factory, nor is it in the instruction book, just from someone who understands tools. ]Here are the specifications for the Silverline 270462 – 350W DIY Jigsaw 230V:
- Ergonomic handle
- Lock-on button and clear blade guard
- Cutting angle range 0 – 45 degrees
- Dust extraction port

Very good very sturdy when using.
Bought this with same company drill it is just perfect.
Reviews from purchasers :
- This is a nice little lightweight saw
- Great for its price.
- Good value and easy to use.
5 stars for me, it loses half a star for the brand name, which is always hit and miss. The upside is, there is a 3 year warranty on the saw for manufacturers defects, so if motor dies and you have registered it online the factory will replace or refurbish the tool. Just note you will have to contact silverline directly not amazon or amazon marketplace seller. The blade that it comes with is terrible, bin it and don’t risk damaging the tool. As another reviewer pointed out it is not set up and you need to adjust the slide and stabilizer on the bottom before use. I have had success with both u-shank and t-shank blades. T-shank seem to do better than the u-shank, that said what blades are intended for it are a mystery. The manufacturer states t-shank yet they send a u-shank in the box?.
Good job i purchased extra blades at time of ordering as the one in the box was the wrong fitting. For the price does what it needs to.
Brilliant 2nd one ive bought great value for money.
Good price for simple cutting.
Exactly as described,good value for money as i will only use now and again. Smaller than other jig-saws i’ve had in the past but i prefer the more compact feel.
Really good quality product. I’ve had mine about a year and it’s as good as the day i bought it. Sometimes it’s worth spending the extra money on the top brands, in this case it’s not.
Just what i needed at a very fair price good value for money.
Had few pieces of wood laying around and since it was rather difficult to buy from ikea and get it delivered i thought i’ll make my own vinyl shelf. If there’s one issue i can point out it is connection to vacuum. Mine vacuum had too big end so it wasn’t any good. But a bit of celotape and that was it. Blade where good for its purpose and it was easy to replace them. Everything was steady and easy to use. For its price it is a great tool. No need to buy more expensive one if you just like me, doing a bit of diy frome time to time.
Better than nothing but not very good for keeping a straight line need to come in at an angle no good following the marker on there. You can only keep your eyes on the blade really to keep it straight.
Was as described and did what i wanted it to do. Was delivered promptly by vendor and was well packaged. I am perfectly happy with both vendor and product.
I’m giving this 4 coz the blade what comes with it is rubbish an ther was no way of contacting seller if i av problems with it got new blades an this works great now x.
Brilliant price and next day delivery was exsalant.
Very good jigsaw for the money.
