best 18v jig, May 22, 2005
Reviewer: Ronald B. Ruiz

I have owned the bosch 18v jig saw and was very unhappy with it.
Jigsaws need to do one thing better than any other saw: cut curves and corners. The new dewalt jig is phenominal in all respects, its blade guidance system allows for the tightest curves I have ever cut with a jig saw and that includes the corded models.

this thing will cut 2" circles inside a 2x4!! and the plug will go in and out from both sides meaning the cut was perfectly perpendicular. I am a loyal milwaukee user but they don't provide a cordless jig so I bought this one.

The power is excellent the balance is near perfect and the keyless shoe is great, best jig saw I have ever used and I am a pro.

only down I can say is the blade does not really fall out when you pull the release lever, you need to pull it out, no biggie.

Great Saw, December 14, 2005
Reviewer: Jim
I have several Dewalt 18V tools and just got this one. Nice to always have a couple of charged batteries ready. It's a great saw and cuts really strong. Nice and compact, especially compared to my Bosch corded saw. Dust blower is better than average. When I use a jigsaw the cord always seems to be in the way or getting snagged on a corner. Blade holder seems very strong and stable. One note...according to the manual,it accepts T-shank blades ONLY. Not the universal blades, but I think I used a Bosch U shank blade also.

Dewalt cordless jigsaw, March 13, 2006
Reviewer: Michael D. Lambert
I think that the overall product is good, but I changed the blade and the release knob broke and it has been in the Dewalt shop for the last two weeks. So I never got to use it.

Best Cordless Jigsaw, March 2, 2006
Reviewer: J. Clark

Best cordless jigsaw, period. Quick and easy miter adjustment and blade exchange. Much better than the old model. Also, the dust blower comes in quite handy.

No second battery? ... So, January 4, 2006
Reviewer: HG fan
The DC330K is a great cordless tool. Several other reviewers have sung the praises of this saw so I won't.

I sometimes wonder if reviewers who bemoan the lack of a second battery with some of DeWalt's cordless tools think about what it is that they are complaining about. DeWalt (or any other cordless mfg) is not going to 'give' you a second battery at no cost (unless its a promotional offer, which sometimes happens). The product specs say you can cut 50' of 3/4" material on a charge! Apparently, since I have not had occassion to 'kill' a battery yet, I have never exceeded this total. The average user would rarely need a second battery. This tool falls into 'special use' catagory and should never be considered as someone's 'primary' saw on a project. Fifty feet of curved, circular, or straight cuts is a lot of running feet! If, on occassion, you think you are going to be cutting more than 50', schedule other project work to do while the battery recharges and save yourself some $. These batteries are not cheap! If you are doing more than 50' worth of continuous cuts on a regular basis, you are doing production-type work and you should buy a second (possibly a third) battery. For the average homeowner even with a workshop, one battery should do it. The addition of a second battery would raise the cost of this high quality, already expensive tool significantly higher and possibly out of the reach of many homeowners with tighter budgets.

Besides, if you have already or are in the process of adding cordless tools to your inventory you probably have 'extra' DeWalt 18v batteries anyway. If so, DeWalt adding a second battery to this package would be a mute point.

A word of caution: Amazon's third party store Max Tool sells several 'bare tools' without batteries or chargers at substantial savings. Reading the available specs for the jig saw offered (MaxTool provides no model #) it appears to be the less powerful DW933K which has 4-star average and some owner related problems... so be sure you know what you are buying.

Big old brute, October 24, 2005
Reviewer: A. Ottwell

Got this saw to do some odd remodel jobs. Saw is great, plenty of power and not having to grab a hot blade is a plus. My only complaint is that this dog is heavy, takes a lot out of you to work over waist high.
