Topic tags/keywords: jig saw saber saw grizzly presidents day special g8994z

I’m in the market for a saber saw (most people seem to prefer the name “jig saw,” so I’ll yield). I see that Grizzly has their G8994Z for sale at $74.95, and that’s their “President’s Day Special.” I wanted to find out what their “non-special” price was, so I did an on-line chat w/ a Grizzly person. Guess what? She didn’t know.

So, I have two questions: Is the G8994Z a decent jig saw; and what’s the full retail price?

My 2013 catalog lists it at 74.95. According to the catalog that includes a 10 blade assortment package and a “H2667 52 PIECE RAZOR KNIFE SET FREE A $32.95 VALUE” (?). I don’t have a clue as to quality. Doesn’t seem like you need to rush your decision.

If you have low expectations you might be moderatly happy with it. I would pass if your looking for a quality saw that sees frequent use. JB
