I was at first skeptical about how well the new jigsaw design would work, but was soon as I tried it out, I found it to be very well designed and built.
The quick release and connect lever allows one to quickly change the blades without a screwdriver like my older B&D jigsaw
Also, the motor and drive is smooth with the variable speed trigger.
I, also, didn't find the item at my local building supply store, but did indeed find it for less than $30 at Walmart.
The blades cost around $5.99 or so for metal and wood blades of the appropriate teeth per inch for virtually any jigsaw job.
The tool helped me to cut out a circle for a toilet closet flange on 3/4" finished plywood which is harder than regular plywood.
I was am very impressed with the initial quality of this tool.
