Ease of Use
A Great Saw by Craftsman
Summary : The Craftsman 6 amp 2 -in1 Jig Saw 28223 is a GREAT saw for the money, and is a perfect balance between cost and quality
The first thing I have to say about the Craftsman Orbital Jig Saw is that it’s more rugged and certainly feels more durable. It’s a little bulkier than some of the other saw’s I’ve use, but it handles very nicely. The grip handle has a hard rubber feel to it. It also has a nice feature where you can remove the handle from the top and use the bottom of the drill as a barrel grip. It has a rotating cut head on the top of the drill. I haven’t found a use for that yet, but I suppose it’s beneficial to some. It also has a laser trac attached to it to help with cutting straight lines.
I purchased my Craftsman Orbital Jig Saw 28223 from Sears. I’ve been using it for a few months now, and it seems really solid. In fact this is my third jig saw that I’ve owned and is by far my favorite. It just feels rugged. I picked mine up for around $70, and also bought a blade holder(it’s definitely “a nice to have”).
The box that the drill came in includes the following items for model 28223:
- Jig Saw
- 2 blades
- Dust tube
- Hex Key
- Carry Bag
