DeWalt DW331K 701W Jigsaw 240V
I am not a professional- just use it for odd jobs but I wanted a quality product .
Had a Black and Decker for many years but when I saw a joiner using a De Walt on a job recently I then realised that not all jigsaws are the same.
I have just finished using it for cutting Chipboard, and MDF board to create shelves in garage.
I am really impressed with this machine. The cut is nice and square and the finish looks like it has been planed.
It is effortless to use and the weight of the jigsaw assists in holding it steady.
I don't find the jigsaw too heavy at all. It is easy to hold it in a straight line and produces a fantastic professional finish.
I think this jigsaw is fabulous and I am now looking for jobs to use it on. It is a pleasure to use.

yep it's a Dewalt
Aahhhh that's better, I foolishly bought a Hitachi jigsaw last November after having owned the same Dewalt (old model) for 12 yrs, and i worked that one hard!!! Regularly cutting and ripping Oak flooring and other hardwoods. The Hitachi hasn't done anywhere close to that amount of work and it has failed!!! Miserably!!!! The new Dewalt unit is heavier than the old one but its well balanced and sits nicely on the work, even when cutting vertically. It's first test was some hard work on 28mm MDF, no problem. Next some nice 20mm Oak flooring, a breeze, then worktops.... Job done. Nice trigger control, comfy grip, easy blade change, and most importantly a sturdy unit. Only had it 2 days and I know it's a winner

Great robust piece of kit
The Jigsaw feels weighty but that adds to the feeling of build quality.
its easy to use and the speed controls are all in handy places
