    I haven’t used a Jig Saw in many many years and needed this refresher for the Ryobi model I bought last year that is still new in the box. I also liked your air nailer video. Thanks for the video.

    My blade clamp came off and I don’t know how to get it back in. Can you help?

    I just started using my brand new Ryobi jigsaw model P5231 with supplied blade.
    I’m really disappointed. I’ve only used positions 0 & 1 so far; but it always cuts at a 10 degree angle to the left. I’ve removed and reset the blade, and it still misbehaves. I’ve used jigsaws for decades and never had a problem getting good alignment. But I see no adjustment for blade angle on this machine. As it is, it’s fairly unusable.
    Is there a way to adjust blade alignment? Is tool defective right out of the box, or is it a bad blade?

    Would have liked to seen just a quick tip on how to manipulate the saw on a curve. I tried my first project that had a lot of curves in it, and found it was really difficult to get those curves to follow the lines precisely. I see a lot of holes being cut out and they look pretty close to accurate, so there must me a trick to get the blade to "turn" through the cuts.
