For those of you Black & Decker fans, the wait is finally over. Black & Decker announced they will introduce a new 20V cordless Jigsaw model BDCJS20B. You should start seeing these hit the shelves sometime in Roctober.
I don't have much experience with Black & Decker, but do know they are geared towards the homeowner. They tend to be a less expensive tool than some of the professional brands which makes it ideal for a homeowner. The jigsaw features a compact trigger. According to them, this saw has a clear line of sight, but without trying it for ourselves, it's really hard to tell. After reading the press release I was happy to see this isn't just a simple jigsaw that is entering the market. In fact it has many of the professional features, but without the high price tag. The saw should retail for about $50. Some of the features include a keyless blade clamp, bevel shoe, dust blower, trigger lock, electric brake and fan-cooled motor.
For $50 it might be a great jigsaw for the homeowner. You will be able to pick these up at Lowes or Menards. For those of us who hate to visit the store, you will also be able to get these on Amazon.
