Default Makita 4329K jig saw

Makita 4329T jig saw
Sourdough is rater
Rate tool at 10

Cheap Ryobi quit after maybe two hours use. Did what I should have done in first place and bought this base model Makita from Amazon for $60.
Tool shows quality immediately out of box. Even though described as a "base-bare bones" model it has three orbital positions, easy blade change with on-board hex wrench, comes with nice case, good instruction bookk and a couple blades. I ordered mine with a selection of Bosch blades, which I have found are the BEST jig saw blades available. If there are better please let me know! Ha Ha!
As expected the saw works perfectly, feels good in my hand. It IS a little heavier than the Ryobi it replaces and it DID cost about $20 more, but I suspect it will last more than TWO hours! Ha!
Good Makita tool....and it IS the base model. But most of us probably don't need the model with all the additional features.

Glad you got a good jigsaw this time,buying good tools that will last is always money well spent.I have a delta 37-190 jointer that I have never liked but I am determined to make it precise and accurate as I cannot at this time afford to buy another jointer.Always the balance of money spent and quality tools exists for us mortals.
