- R yobi JS550L Orbital Scrolling Jig Saw with Laser
- Brand: R yobi | Category: Jig Saws
Another reconditioned tool from Direct Tools factory outlet in Hagarstown MD. This one looked brand new except for the RECOND branded into the housing.
This is a standard orbital jig saw with adjustable blade angle, adjustable shoe angle, adjustable orbital motion. adjustable locking speed, and a max speed limiter on the trigger. It has plenty of control and power and far more adjustements than I will ever need. I can’t really see myself needing the adjustable blade angle or the adjustable shoe angle but you never know. The laser is a very nice touch, I dont make straight line cuts with a jig saw anyway but it does help keep on target.
I am going to knock it down some because the blade angle adjustment and the show angle adjustment dont have stops for 0 degrees. Im going to give it 4 stars, I know its not in the same league as a Bosch or Dewalt but I only paid $35 for it and for that I am going to bump it up for that.
