Black and Decker Jigsaw Review (New Curve Control) — by Home Repair Tutor

Today’s video unboxes Black and Decker’s jigsaw with Curve Control.

I’m a tool junky and love sharing reviews on tools or supplies.

Jigsaws are great tools for installing flooring, a few years back I installed laminate flooring using just a jigsaw.

This jigsaw has 4 different speed settings, 1 being the least aggressive and 4 being the most aggressive. Setting 1 is for non-orbital cuts while settings 2-4 are for orbital cuts.

The shoe is adjustable and can make bevel cuts of 22.5 to 45 degrees both left and right. You’ll see that the shoe is made from heavy gauge metal, which is nice.

No tools are needed to install the blades. You can use either U or T shanks. One wood blade comes with the jigsaw, I wish they’d include 2 or 3 blades 😀

The back of the jigsaw has an exhaust port that can be connected to a shop vac or vacuum.

I do think the site line is great on this tool because you can clearly see what you’re cutting.

I bought one of these and like it but I find it difficult to see any drawn lines through the wire guide. Is anything adjustable to make this easier?

Damon Hawthorne says:

Very informative, Thank you!

Are there jig saw blades that do not bend?  When I cut 3/4 inch plywood, the edges are not at a perfect 90 degree angle like they would be if cut on a table saw.  This is because the blade bends, even on straight cuts.

Aljaž Ribič says:

I have one with laser and it’s einhell brand And excelent video keep up the good work! 🙂 Now i know how to start the cut without driling 😀 Just a question which blade would you recommend? U shape or t shape? 🙂

Dave k says:

Home Depot has these on sale for $29.99. I bought one this fall but haven’t tried it yet. The quick release for the blade is fantastic. This replaces my old B&D jigsaw from the 1980’s.

EstPaul says:

i just picked this up today to rough in a waste pipe. it cut half inch wood like butter. i think this will be worth the 40$

Moran Guy says:

first question is how is the quality of this cheap product ? do you recommend to buy it or a bosch one for example the PEL 800 ?
another question is where did you get this background music ?

sarath palaparthy says:

Hi Jeff, very detailed video! thanks. do you know if we can do 30 degree bevel cuts with this? or is it only 22.5, 45 degrees? Appreciate your comments.

Hey Jeff, nice video! I have this jigsaw and learned a couple of new things. Hey what bamboo laminate is that at the end of the video (company / model), if you know? I’ve been looking for something like that. Thanks!

Akaaljot Singh says:

EC4400 says:

Another great video. Keep up the good work.

Eric Corona says:

I bought one of these at home depot for 19.99, so far so good !

Abba Alexander says:

I am tempted to buy this cute little baby and make myself a beautiful custom shoe shelving with some wood and maybe one for my purses.
