Picked one of these up this morning. Fantastic bit of kit for the price. They had 200W Black & Decker ones in B&Q on special offer at the weekend but 800W will cut the mustard where 200W Jig Saws will struggle.

Comes with a 3 year warranty, 3 blades, speed adjustment, has a cutting guide and LED work light and laser. You can't go wrong really. Use it til it breaks (if it ever does) and take it back for a new one.

Oh, and it uses standard Bosch fit blades, so easy to find and replace with quality blades.

Is it in a case? Don't expect one for this price, but thought I'd ask.

No case, comes boxed with all the accessories thrown in. No dust bag either, with them implying you attach it to a hoover.

yes and I have several, guess your not very old, cause you said "did"

Used this one recently, the light gives a nice bright led 'ice white' glow so is great for seeing what you are cutting on not-so-bright days, but the laser I think is a hit or miss - not ideal for precision cutting as the laser light is quite wide and obviously is a couple of inches in front of the blade as you cut. Much better than the cheap 185w one I had from B&Q though, like butter with a hot knife.

I love Toy Story and this deal. Hot from me.

Never used a Jig Saw before. "Aluminium base plate 45° left and right adjustable" - is this for cutting joins for skirting board etc?

Yes it would be for mitre joints, BUT, if you have the option I would use a mitre saw any day over a jig saw for accuracy and clean cut. You want a mitre to be really accurate, and with a hand held jigsaw you may struggle.

bad example OP, my 200W jigsaw has no probs cutting mustard, perhaps yours had the wrong blade (knife-like, also good for butter when hot)?

good price, hot...

Would this be suitable for cutting a hole in my ceiling to create a second loft access? My current loft access area is pretty useless, it doesn't actually give me access to the area of the loft with most space.

It might be hard to use upside down, and you'd get a lot of dust in your eyes. If you're only cutting through plasterboard I'd go for a padsaw. It's quite soft and easy to cut by hand, probably safer too.

If he's going to put a loft access in then one assumes he has access to the ceiling from the loft and would cut from above

Yes a Jigsaw would work for this.

Well that was very sensible, I was thinking hold it above your head too lol
