I wouldn’t waste my time or money, you could build the same thing (if you already have a jig saw) alot cheaper…

I can’t believe Rockwell put something like this on the market…

Due to the opinions of this forum and others, I have persuaded my friend to not purchase this saw. Thanks for your opinions.

I remember when in school alot of the machinery in shop was Rockwell…

To see what’s they put out there today it’s scary…

That looked like something SKIL would come out with…
