6.1 Amp Variable Speed Jig Saw with SpeedMatch™
6.1 Amp Variable Speed Jig Saw with SpeedMatch™ is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 51.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid jig saw I've mostly used this saw to cut rounded corners and a few irregular shapes from 1-inch 3-ply red oak stair treads. In general the saw held up well. The motor did fine with extended use--close to an hour of cutting with only short breaks in between cuts. The LED light was beneficial. The ability to change the orbital motion to increase aggressiveness of the cut was also appreciated. The only downside for me was that the shoe (which can be adjusted to either side to allow for angled cuts) seemed to loosen up slightly as I went along, necessitating several pauses to re-tighten it so it didn't throw off my cuts. At one point I wasn't paying attention and the shoe did loosen enough to change the angle of my cut by probably 10+ degrees, which meant I had to go back and re-do the cut. This probably won't be an issue if you're doing short work, but if cutting for an extended period, take caution.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use I bought this to help with smaller cuts and rounding. I figured it would be more versatile than a router, as I just started doing more projects. Although my cuts were not perfect, the variable speed function to helped me along to not stray too far off course. I honestly do think Ryobi are the best bang for the buck for those beginners like me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful Purchased this jig saw to replace my older JS700 Black and Decker high end model with many options...but I have to say my broken Black and Decker was never as fast straight cutting as this Ryobi is....I cut a one inch board perfectly straight and very fast. my broken jigsaw would not do that even as good when it was new. very pleased with my purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 6.1 Amp Variable Speed Jig Saw This is my first jig saw I owned and used so I can't really say how good or bad this is. I am, however, mostly satisfied with it except it cuts crooked. If run the saw straight, it cuts at about 10 degrees off to the left so I have to cock it the saw a little to the right to cut straight along the line.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to handle! I bought this for an art home project. It worked perfectly. While I am new to this product, I was able to handle it perfectly, but I also note it has several features that I haven't had the need to use, so I'm pretty sure it would work great even for a more experienced person!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from jig saw found this saw was not what i expected. When you line up the blade on your line to cut it goes off to the left and you have to turn the saw to the right to make it go straight. Also the base will not lock and the saw will cut on a angle, very disappointed in this saw.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little tool I bought it about a month ago needed to cut a bigger hole on my unitub to access some pipes and a friend had suggested a jig saw with the help of the variable speed and a carbide blade I was a able to get the job done quickly and effortlessly would highly recommend
