First of all, if you bought this attachment instead of an actual jigsaw, then you bought it for the wrong reason. If you bought this tool to have something handy and cordless, then you bought it for the right reason. I bought this because I build a lot of arches, and I use it to cut out my scribes. It's perfect for when you need to do something rough, and don't want to fight with a cord. I've only used this thing on plywood so far, and it works great. I'm sure it would be fine for metal, too. For fine stuff, I have my variable speed, variable orbit DeWalt, but this Ridgid is perfect for what I bought it for. An orbital setting would be nice, though.
Easy to Use,
no orbital setting
