    yes great review thank you… i own a black n decker curve control I only use it for small jobs and does the job for me 🙂 in another review I saw that it can use both T and U blades and in Canada it sells for 55$ plus tax.. Oh Canada!

  2. Ann Pender on January 14, 2022 at 10:32 pm

    So happy I made right choice. Just inserted my very first blade. I am ready for my first black/decker project. Ann from Iowa

    Great review!

  4. Ben Firszt on January 14, 2022 at 10:34 pm

    Very helpful, thanks

    Thank you it’s very helpful 🙂

  6. TheLuxfare on January 14, 2022 at 10:37 pm

    Great review. Very honest!!

  7. Wallis Wilson on January 14, 2022 at 10:40 pm

    Thanks for the descriptions and comparisons. I just bought myself a Black and Decker, because I am a true beginner in any kind of woodworking. It was nice to know that it is a solid tool. Thanks again!

  8. Electric on January 14, 2022 at 10:41 pm

    I think the BD is probably all most DIYers would need.

  9. Tayyab Mahmood on January 14, 2022 at 10:42 pm

    Really nice review

  10. Local Open Mic on January 14, 2022 at 10:45 pm

    More expensive tools are almost always a more satisfactory experience. The rub is this, if you don’t need to use the tool often, the less expensive tool makes more sense (cents), use the savings on another piece of gear you need. I would go with the B&D.

  11. Tricyklist on January 14, 2022 at 10:45 pm

    Thanks for a nicely balanced and thorough review. But, can I suggest you change your dark table and dark clothing? Your camera cannot cope with the deep shadows. Few cameras can. Try it once with neutral grey clothes and table cover. [Just like your studio background] You’ll never go back to black. I positively guarantee it. 😉

  12. biak lian on January 14, 2022 at 10:46 pm

    Please make review on circular jigsaw too.

  13. George Costanza on January 14, 2022 at 10:47 pm

    I’m just a home maintenance kind of guy and I always choose Ryobi… right in between the DeWalt and B&D in terms of pricing and performance, they’re super durable, supported by Home Depot, their batteries fit into about 200 different tools, plus the fluorescent green they come in make them very easy to keep track of in a project area👍

  14. promo130 on January 14, 2022 at 10:47 pm

    try saw a straight line with the blackndecker impossible with all the blade deflection
    trie saw arround a corner, the blackndecker doesnt has the power for it,

  15. Scot Johnson on January 14, 2022 at 10:47 pm

    I just picked up a 20 year old Milwaukee jigsaw made in Germany brand new in the original Box for 60 bucks.

  16. Shantha Kumar on January 14, 2022 at 10:48 pm

    Wonderful Review!!! Thank you very much.

  17. Babyjohn on January 14, 2022 at 10:48 pm

    Extremely informative thanks for the video.😊👍

  18. humlakullen on January 14, 2022 at 10:48 pm

    Lol… Thanks for saving me money. Going for the jigsaw instead of the circular saw.Awesome review.

  19. DHEx on January 14, 2022 at 10:48 pm

    Keep in mind Black and Decker and DeWalt are the same company. The Dewalt brand was revised in the 90s to design and market to the more professional and demanding user. The company is Stanley Black and Decker, which owns a number of brands including Porter Cable, and now Craftsman. Manufacturing of some of these brands is done by various OEM manufactures for the brand. This was a great overview. Thanks!

  20. Ersek Laszlo on January 14, 2022 at 10:49 pm

    Great video honest and perfect advice for beginner woodworkers 😀 like me ..

  21. Venom Broly 1993 on January 14, 2022 at 10:49 pm

    Hi, your blade are diablo’s one, but the link you put is bosch blade, could you please give me the link or reference for the diablo’s blade ?

  22. Ian Foo from Guyana on January 14, 2022 at 11:00 pm

    I choose the blackndecker

  23. alkazapper on January 14, 2022 at 11:02 pm

    Very organised documentation. Thank you so much for your review.

  24. triumphil on January 14, 2022 at 11:03 pm

  25. Joanna Frye on January 14, 2022 at 11:04 pm

    Great video! I just noticed this video this morning as I’m awaiting the delivery of my Black and Decker Jig Saw I purchased yesterday. I’m so glad I’m not disappointed in my selection. As long as I don’t get a factory lemon I think this will be just fine.

  26. Fatima El fathi on January 14, 2022 at 11:05 pm

    great review thank you i choose black and decker

  27. Mike Jewitt on January 14, 2022 at 11:07 pm

    Great video, the BD jigsaws are the best value in power tools I would argue.

  28. Cfdezb21 on January 14, 2022 at 11:07 pm

    Thank you!

  29. Beltrancho on January 14, 2022 at 11:10 pm

    Wonderful review, it covers every single aspect of them … thanx for sharing with us your knowledge about these tools … I’m still undecided hahaha

  30. Kennedy McGovern on January 14, 2022 at 11:11 pm

    The real tale is told within the warranty limitations. B&D tells you, right out of the gate, that their tool is not meant for regular usage.

    Understand that Stanley owns BOTH B&D and DeWalt, and they make each line for specific purposes. There is nothing "wrong" with the different ideas. The cheaper line os simply meant for occasional use, is all. So I am not about top knock B&D’s intentions.

    But in reality, B&D does not even hold up under the limitations they set for themselves.

    I am a home use guy. When I was young, I bought a B&D 12 volt impact for my first home. Scratch that. It may not even have been an impact. Maybe it was just a drill. I do not remember. In any case, I am NOT a tradesman. I am just a guy who does his own work around his own house. That 12 Volt B&D smoked itself after about 3 years.

    Not wanting to keep replacing tools for the rest of my life, I asked my contractor friend for advice. On his vice, I went 20V and I went DeWalt. I bought a set, with a regular drill and an impact. I am 51 years old now, and I JUST upgraded (to newer DeWalts). Those drills I bought back in my 20s were working fine, and I gave them to another friend who uses them to this day.

    "Buy Once, Cry Once" is the saying.

    The DeWalts are more expensive. They are a LOT more expensive. But when you factor for the fact that the DeWalts you buy may very well last you the rest of your life…well, they are really cheaper in the long run.

    Like I said, Stanley is happy to sell you 5 B&D tools over the next 15 years, or one DeWalt tool. YOU, on the other hand, will be MUCH happier if you just pony up and buy the DeWalt.

  31. Jack McVey on January 14, 2022 at 11:12 pm

    I just tried to buy this B&D jigsaw from Amazon UK where I live. The price here for the same model is 158 UK pounds (224 US dollars)

  32. David VR Rampaul on January 14, 2022 at 11:12 pm

    Informative video with comparison. I’d go with B And D. By the way was the stroke depth with the default able to be faster than BD?

  33. Como Se Hace? on January 14, 2022 at 11:13 pm

    Wow! Youre amazing, subscribed

  34. Marcus Graham on January 14, 2022 at 11:14 pm

    Yeah man, I’m impressed with the thoroughness of this report. I research the hell out of tools prior to buying a new one and you covered it all plus some good tips on saving money. Thank you

  35. Wafiq Essop on January 14, 2022 at 11:15 pm

    Absolutely brilliant video. Learnt a lot.

  36. Smith Kids on January 14, 2022 at 11:15 pm

    thank you for the video

  37. Yongmin Huh on January 14, 2022 at 11:16 pm

    Between those two jig saws, which one will give me finer cut under same conditions? Dewalt has 1 in stroke and B&D has 3/4 inch stroke.

  38. gus ponce on January 14, 2022 at 11:17 pm

    Thank you for the time comparing them side-by-side!

  39. Paul Weston on January 14, 2022 at 11:18 pm

    "The depth of the cut is determined by the length of the stroke"? Okay, I was thinking blade length but what do I know.

  40. Ann Pender on January 14, 2022 at 11:19 pm

    Thank you 😇

  41. ΣΤΑΥΡΟΣ ΓΚΕΡΛΕΣ on January 14, 2022 at 11:20 pm

    hi my friend. I much enjoyed your video. It is full of content and not just for show. i believe that a proffesional should go both sides. A battery powered tool and when juice runs out then just plug the corded and continue. but, if you are a hobbist and work for pleasure and recreation, i believe that a corded one is more appropriate. because you don’t get to use the tool on a daily basis so a corded one will last you a3 lifetimes, but battery will eventually degrade costing you money to rebuild or buy a new battery , provided they still exists.
    I just purchased a corded jigshaw for 35 bucks and it has a light and a laser guide. but it doesn’t have toolless angle adjustment, you need an allen key to adjust angles.
    as for the two in your video, sure the dewalt has many comfort features which make you job easier but you can find all of that in the 50 bucks corded field. so in my opinion all the comfort features are overrated by manufacturers and that black and decker could have all these features for the same price.

  42. morbido13 on January 14, 2022 at 11:20 pm

    Great review!
    Nice to see somebody who actually uses the tool they are reviewing instead of just doing an unboxing.
    I was gonna buy a much expensive jigsaw but thanks to you I think I’ll give the Black & Decker a chance.

  43. Gech Li on January 14, 2022 at 11:22 pm

    Very informative video. At this stage, I will go with the hobbyist’s option to start with. Thank you for this video!

  44. Journeyman Traveller on January 14, 2022 at 11:22 pm

    I have an AEG and it came with an adjustable fence which is extremely useful for ripping. Do these jigsaws come with a fence?

  45. Benjamin Gerow on January 14, 2022 at 11:22 pm

    Suggested in my feed and I’m happy it was. Very well made right down to the editing. Great comparison review

  46. Catsspanish :v on January 14, 2022 at 11:25 pm

    It is definitely the best explanation I have seen on youtube in terms of price and convenience. I’ve been looking for advice to see which one to invest in as a beginner and your video definitely gave me a very clear idea of ​​which one would suit me best. Thank you very much and I hope you keep posting interesting videos like this one.

  47. Delila Shapaka on January 14, 2022 at 11:26 pm

    Thanks you, I came here today to learn about the Black and Decker jigsaw for my 1st woodwork home project.

    I am grateful for the information you shared, I am confident it will work wonders for me.

  48. AdiYogi on January 14, 2022 at 11:29 pm

    Thanks dear. I was wondering what are the differences between costly and cheap jig saws. Same brands makes costly and cheap jig saws with almost same feature and power.

  49. KARTHIBANATHAN Sembuveerappan on January 14, 2022 at 11:30 pm

    I’m going for Black and Decker
    Good Explanation

  50. Journeyman Traveller on January 14, 2022 at 11:30 pm

    Could try rubbing some candlewax or beeswax on the metal base to make it easier to move and reduce scuffing. The plastic can still scratch ply surface. Orbital and bevel rarely used but may be worth trying it for mitre cuts.
