I got this Jigsaw for a project and it worked really well. Festool's Jigsaw just seems to cut straight by nature. Consider this one for your next purchase. I am so happy with the Festool PS 300 EQ I gave it 5 stars. Until I used the Festool PS 300 EQ, I hated Jigsaws.

Festool PS 300 EQ Final Thoughts
The Jigsaw is well constructed and looks good. All that said, the Festool PS 300 EQ cuts like a champ. It is easier to use than my old Makita. The Jigsaw is super comfortable and is very fast. I upgraded from an old Ryobi and what a difference.
