Editor's Review: A Better Breed of Jigsaws

review date: September 1, 2006

The Makita 4340FCT is a solid performer with a handy LED. Its middle-of-the-road pricing is attractive, and its size and agility make it a good choice for those with smaller hands. The removable no-mar base is a nice feature, as is onboard tool storage. Vibration is minimal.
