Rated 1 out of 5 by from Garbage Just bought this jigsaw today at home depot. Should've read the reviews, but was in a rush. Bought it to build a sub box for my truck. First of all, the adjustable angles, while a nice feature. Needs a student lock. The bolt loosens up during use, not a deal breaker, but a pain. Next, every blade I've used jams in it and doesn't like to release. Also, while cutting 3/4" mdf, the blade will pop off it's guide and cut sideways. This IS a deal breaker. I bought this jigsaw because I've heard people raving about rigid tools, but after destroying a piece of mdf while trying to use it, I'm returning it and getting a cheaper jigsaw that I know works and a new mdf board. Hopefully some of the one that this garbage product destroyed will be salvagable

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing! Not what it should be! I am a Ridgid Tool fan. I have Ridge drills, saws, nail guns, tool boxes, etc.. Not at all impress with functionality of this jig saw. First, there is no trigger to pull, which feels weird to me, I like to be able to pull a trigger and control the speed of the blade. This doesn't have it. The blade is to far back and hard to see where you cut. The light shines in front of the saw and not on the cutting area. It struggles a little cutting 3/4" thick pine board. If you do construction for a living and need a powerful jig saw. This is not the one. If you are a hobbyist and only cut 1/2" thick board and smaller, it would work for that. I believe this should be a $50 jig saw and not $80 like i paid for it. I hope Ridgid takes these reviews serious and redesign this jig saw. Until then I will use a Dewalt jig saw. P.S.- The quick release blade change is nice!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from There are better units I used this tool for the first time this morning. The non-marring base is not good. It does mar the surface. Also, the base is so soft I gouged it from the surface I was cutting (1/16" steel). The quick change blade is good. I don't like the adjustable base. It does not have positive notches to find the preset angles. Once I set the saw at 0°, the vibration of the saw caused the base to loosen and change the angle. That messed up my work piece. Nope; don't buy this one folks. I have a Bosch that serves me well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Would not Recommend this First, I would like to say that I am a Ridgid fan, most of the power tools that I own are ridged brand, love their stuff. This jig saw.... lets just be honest.... this jig saw is terrible compared to other jig saws available on the market. I see the response from Ridgid on the other comments. I think you guys need to just admit that this tool isn't as good as most of your products. I just hope that instead of "standing behind your product" you (Ridgid) will take the feedback as constructive criticism and redesign the jig saw. Remember the point of feedback is to identify weak areas and make improvements.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bevel doesn't lock the Bevel doesn't lock when trying to cut, while making a radius cut it bevels on you making an incorrect cut

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Why no variable speed ??? I own many Ridgid products and was all set to buy this one but (and I can't believe other users haven't mentioned this) it doesn't have variable speed - virtually everyone has variable speed as standard, how can you cut a variety of materials without it? - hopefully this is in the works as I can't buy until you have it, can you advise status on this ??

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Spend the extra money on a DeWalt I will start off by saying this, for thin material (less than 1/8"), it works great. For anything thicker it is completely useless due to the shoe not staying locked in the 90 degree setting regardless of how tight I turn the set screw. After reading the reviews, I see this is a common complaint. After reading the replies to the reviews, I do not expect anything to be done since I foolishly did not cut anything thicker than paneling until after 90 days had passed. I will continue to use my 1/4" impact driver (fantastic tool) and use more caution in the future when selecting Ridgid tools.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A disapoinment I have quite a few ridged tools that I'm completely satisfied with , so I bought this saw without doing any research, trusting that it would be of the same quality. I'm not happy with it at all. The blade is set back so far, it's nearly impossible to follow a line. The LED lighting illuminates the work way to far ahead of the blade. The degree marks to zero the angle of the shoe is blocked by the handle. All together, a poor design. It will be gathering dust under my workbench while my new dewalt saw does the work. The only redeeming quality of this tool was the price, and after using it , that was too high as well. I hadn't used it until it was past the 90 days, so I'm stuck with it. A total disappointment.

Can you lock the bottom of the jig saw at a angle

Asked by: Arob
No, the RIDGID R3100’s base does not have a locking feature. It can be tilted for different cutting angles, but it does not have a lock in capability, at those angle settings. Thanks, RIDGID
