Well if the blade won’t stay where it’s supposed to, then it probably is missing it’s blade guide….
I know of a company that couldn’t figure that out….

I have 2 dewalt jigsaws. a newer one, that the blade will track off a shave every once an a while, and an old one that is just about perfect when it comes to cutting, but the chord is old and dry wrotted, though no exposed wire…

Bosch makes some good jigsaws, craftsman does, though the one described above is either a really old model or he bought it from someone who didn’t take care of it. Porter Cable makes a nice one. There are several good ones. But they need to be taken care of.

-- The mark of a good carpenter is not how few mistakes he makes, but rather how well he fixes them.
