Customer reviewsI Like It Better than My Yellow One
I was planning to make a stationary jigsaw station. Since the jigsaw will be screwed into the base, I decided to get a second, cheaper saw so I didn t have to keep removing and reinstalling my current jigsaw, if I needed to do something freehand. The Wen jigsaw seemed to fit the bill, both on capability and price.
