Overview

Editor's Review: A Better Breed of Jigsaws

review date: September 1, 2006

The Craftsman 27719 is behind the times. Although it offers a great line of sight and front flush-cutting capability, its toolless blade change is primitive and frustrating. The blade didn't track well on curves, and it was one of the worst countertop chippers in the trial. The orbital settings and blower controls are located conveniently.
