Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by unhappy with jigsaw I would fist like to add I own alot of rigid tools everything from table saw to cordless tools but the jigsaw not only needs a Allen key to adjust the base but will move if you don't tighten it with alot of force. The blade is almost hidden by the body of the jigsaw so cutting from over top of the jigsaw is akward bc you need to lean far forward or to the side. I am very happy with Rigid products but u was sk disappointed with the jigsaw I threw it in the garbage in front of my whole crew and I just bought it yesterday. Home depot doesn't carry the cordless in store and would need to buy it online and well I'm not sure if I should bother. I would love to be able to test new rigid products as a tester since I work with them everyday. 3 things I would change on this jigsaw 1. Base needs to lock solid without an Allen key like your cordless skillsaw ... it's very easy and convenient. 2. You use a jigsaw because you need to make precise cuts and curves and if I can't see the blade then it's useless I have to either make a high bench for the one tool or be on an akward angle forward or the side and 3. It collects too much sawdust in front of the cut having exaust from the motor or a blower of some kind to clear the sawdust would be helpful. I am also aware you have great service and exchange program at home depot and I know I could return it. I have 0 time for poorly made products or to spend time to exchange them I have a bussiness and crew to run. I really hope that you make changes to the jigsaw and I'll keep with the Rigid brand.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Ridgid Jig saw My husband purchased a Ridgid jig saw for me. I find it very awkward to use. The plate does not lock in the 0 position and it is hard to find. It is hard to find the correct angle if I want to move it. It does not have a finger off and on switch. This is my biggest complaint. I feel it is a safety issue to have the off/on switch at the top of the saw. It is very awkward to cut the board, hold the saw and turn it off. The grip is huge, of course I am a lady so I do not have big man hands. March 30, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by useless tool, the blade holder came off After only 4 hrs of work over a 2 year period the blade holder came off. By this time the tool was out of worranty and because i did not register the tool for the LIFETIME WARRANTY Ridgid has declined to fix it. March 25, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Needs a real FOOT! The LED light, air blowing and clearing the cutting path is great. It is nice that you can select the type of action the want the blade to do while cutting. The only thing that this tool really needs a redesign is the FOOT. It will wonder off zero degrees if you press to hard on one side or the other even after tightening the foot adjustable screw. This is its downfall. I love the LED light and wish they put that on the reciprocating saw they make! December 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 A tool of great fiability My Ridgid jig saw is a tool of great fiability , strongly built and easy to use.I own it for 3 years now and it still like a new. November 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by The barrel design is much easier to control Just a great product easy to control when doing scroll work, nice visually easy to follow your path when operating, and the guide plate with the plastic does not hang up or drag of materials. All in all a great handling product November 25, 2014

Answer: 
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
