Need some schooling in jigsaws
I've been eyeing a new one for awhile, and now funds are becoming available to discuss the purchase. Besides 'advertised' power and the choice between top handle and barrel grip, is there a huge difference between most of what the big brands offer?
I have a much older corded B&D that I'm missing a screw to set the blade, and a 18v Ryobi that's great for quick jobs, but I know I need more oomph for much more than that.
I'm drawn to the barrel grips because they don't have the annoying pressure switches. I also am aware the blades play a big part, and I've permanently switched to Bosch for those. I guess I'm trying to decide primarily between the Ridgid and the new Bosch barrel grips (but am open to any). Large difference in rated power here.
