No reason to return the battery, it's more helpful, and more reliable, than this jigsaw.

I have had zero issues with this jigsaw so far. I know some people complain about the setscrew underneath the base but I don't make beveled cuts with mine so I haven't needed to adjust it. I love the barrel grip feature which makes my cuts more precise. It should be noted my only comparison is the Ryobi brushed model, so take that for what you will.

Not bad by any means, just below average for Milwaukee standards. Also, it can be purchased new on eBay for $60-$70. So not a great deal.

Looks like it's not brushless motor. I am not a heavy user. So I think it worth saving the money. Ordered one. Thanks

I have dozens of different Milwaukee tools and for the most part like them all....this is the worst cutting jigsaw I have ever owned. No amount of adjustment made it any better, Took it back and exchanged it for another one and it was the same way.

What would recommend? For reference, I usually buy corded tools for what I don't often use or need to be portable.

Is this the best jigsaw on the market? No.

Is this workable for DIY weekend warriors already invested in the M12 ecosystem? Absolutely.

Complaints about the M12 jigsaw are overblown IMO. No, it's not the best, but for $50-60 it does the job on my amateur woodworking projects. All my tools are Milwaukee M12 or M12 FUEL and I'd rather have one subpar tool work with my existing ecosystem than have an outlier that performs marginally better. YMMV. For anyone who doing more complicated or intense woodworking I'd avoid this and get the M18 saw. For most folks this will get the job done, and I think the target audience here is very clearly NOT serious woodworkers or contractors. .

The harbor freight Bauer jigsaw has treated me well

I will echo "this tool sucks." My other cordless jigsaw (an 18v DeWalt) has a blower feature that blows chips out of the blade path so that you can see where you are cutting...this one does not have that and chips land basically right in front of the blade so I am constantly stopping to blow them off so I can see what I'm doing. Totally defeats the purpose of a tool that is usually used for intricate cuts.

I have/had a pile of milwaukee tools, and only two got returned: The terrible upright M18 shop vac, and this almost as terrible jig saw. No dust blower, so you couldn't see your cut line at all. I returned it. I reverted back to a 20 year corded model as it was better than this M12. I waited for the M18 version to go on sale under $100, and jumped on it. The M18 is infinitely better, not just "a little better".

Slick for sure even though I see these on market place brand new for $50 all the time though they're most likely stolen..

I have one and absolutely love it. This is my second one actually. First was stolen. I use it often to cut holes on fiberglass panels on boats. I have used it to cut some insanely thick panels and it would cut with no problem. It's smaller than the M18 model allowing you to get in tighter spots.

I have one and it's plenty powerful for me. It's a great compact size and has come in handy a time or two in tight areas. It cut right through some old pressure treated 2x6 in a sprinkler box with a Diablo blade.

Like most M12 tools, they do 99% of everything the average person is going to need it for great, plus they fit in tight areas better too. If you reach the limits of an M12 tool, then you know it's time to get an 18v version of it from Ryobi, Ridgid, Milwaukee, etc.
