i have the same jigsaw as uhm says its a brilliant bit off kit i would like to further add its completly tool free you can adjust the cutting angle via the lever thats visible at the back of the baseplate
it has a plastic splinter gaurd that acts as a guide but on mine it kept falling off solved that problem by drawing a white guide line on the clear plastic front gaurd

got mines for £178 with 2x 2ah batts charger kit box and 5m tape :grin:
from http://www.powertoolsuk.co.uk/default.asp obviously end off line :wink:

I find the blade change much easier then the bosch models, that click and twist.

The dewalt will also grip ant blade whether it be straight or T shaped.

I bought this 7 years ago when it came out it cost a fortune then with two 3ah nimh batterys but ive only changed the brushes four times thats it! and its still going strong ive beat the sh*t out off work wise and its still kicking the new ones in the butt its my favourit & most brilliant tool that ive ever bought, no praise is enough for this jigsaw.... They dont make them like this anymore.

It's an excellent piece of kit. I hardly ever get the Bosch GST 2000 out of the case now as the Dewalt is so good.

I have that same problem on my Dewalt reciprocating saw, it is sometimes a real pain to get them out!
