Default Ryobi ZR JS550LK WARNING!

Tool name and number is in the title. Reviewer is Sourdough. Date is 2/18/12.
Bought this tool because I needed a little jig saw for my Winter Palace location. Did so in a hurry! I KNOW better and man did I find out! To be kind about it....the price was cheap. But the saw is a hunka junk. I got perhaps an hour or so of use before it just stopped. During that hour it was a little quirky. Tried to find a way too "fix" it. Ended up throwing it in the dumpster. And you will too if you buy one.
AFTER my experience THEN I went looking for reviews. Guess what I found? Yep, reviews just like this one.
So I bought a Makita like the one in the cabin up north. What I SHOULD have done in the first place. I just flushed $32.50 down the drain fellas.
BE WARNED.

Why didn't you return the tool since it was defective?

Mike, I bought the tool about this time last year, spur of the moment type thing. I had not used it much at all. I figured the store would not take it back a year later with no receipt. I learned a good lesson....or should I say I RE-learned a good lesson!

I have that very same jig saw. So far so good, but I don't use it very much.

Chris: Be sure to update the gang on your saw. As I found out AFTER the fact,this particular model is NOTED for being a pretty pitiful piece of gear.
I wish you the best. You'll know when it's done: it will STOP in mid-stroke. That's it!! Ha Ha!!
