It's no looker, but seems reasonably well-specced and is well over £100 everywhere else I've seen it.

"It's no looker"
Oh I wouldn't say that, she caught my eye
Thanks OP. Can I confirm the returns policy - do they refund the postage costs? Can't see that being mentioned on the returns page

No idea to be honest- I've bought plenty from them but never had to return anything. I think if it's faulty, by law they have to, but probably not if you just change your mind on it.
It is remarkable that they've made something as simple as a jigsaw look so crap, I'm sure it's functional and does the job but if it wasn't yellow you'd not believe it was a Dewalt....maybe they subbed out production to some other company?!

Ha, looks awful doesn't it?! Any more screws in it and there'd be no plastic left.

It's probably really durable and looks like decent metalwork but somehow it looks odd
It looks like that for one reason.

So mere mortals can use it and build something. No mater how bad your creation looks, it looks fantastic compared to this turd.

The handle looks like a parrot trying or pleasure itself.

you do know that dewalt is made by black and decker???
the tools are exactly the same inside but as a mind trick they make dewalt yellow and you instantly think of JCB making you think its big and strong,then they charge you more for the dewalt ....

That isn't true in the slightest, in fact it's absolute cobblers. They're owned by Black and Decker, I wouldn't even dispute they're made in the same factory, but if you've owned (or even used) both you'll know they aren't the same thing just in a different casing.

It might be no looker but it ages well! I’ve had this model for >8years and it’s a great little jigsaw, cuts true (with decent blades), has blower to clear cutting line of sawdust, variable speed nice and controllable and blade change a doddle. Only downside is it’s corded but, then again, it’d have been much more expensive as a cordless back then.

Yeah, agreed. While it did appear that some Stanley drills bare a close resemblance to older discontinued Dewalt models there still seems a distinct product line up, Dewalts are better than Stanley which are better than Black and Decker.

There are probably some common parts used and similarities in some aspects but they're not all the same.

If it's 8yrs old I'm not so sure this is a bargain. Technology and manufacturing of these may have moved on. Usually retailers put power tools that are 1-2yrs old for sell around this price (see now expired link below £50 for a makita Jigsaw that retailed for over £100):

Maybe, maybe not. I think the Makita jigsaw I've got has been going for a good ten years or more, more-or-less unchanged.
