Seems these have been around for a couple of years now. What’s the verdict on these saws? As far as saws I’ve got a nice Dewalt jig saw that I use every so often, plus a CMS, TS, scroll saw and a couple of real nice hand saws. No BS tho, yet.

Have the bugs been worked out on these (seems there’s a bunch of good and a bunch of not so good reviews).

If you’ve got one, please give me your opinion.

Thanks….rookieII…..

I don’t own one, but I think they’re way too glorified for what they are: a jigsaw bolted to a table. For what they cost, they just aren’t worth it. You can do everything they advertise for this machine with the tools you have, in the woodworking aspect. If I were you, and I really wanted one, I would just rig up a jigsaw under a piece of MDF or ply and call it good. You could add guides to stabilize the blade, but that’s kind of overkill for what it would really be doing. All of this is in my own opinion of course, so to each their own.
