Besides six amps of power and trigger-controlled variable speed, the new 4680-04 orbital scrolling jigsaw from Skil features — you guessed it — a ruby colored light show.
Other features: a 5-position orbital cut control adjusts orbit size between small (smooth) to large (fast). An LED work light helps in low-light situations, and tool-free bit changing and guide foot adjustment keep everything simple. Its 5.7 lb. heft is about average for a jigsaw in this class, and it can handle cut 1-3/8” worth of hard wood or 2-1/4” of soft wood at 800 to 3200 strokes per minute.
There’s not a lot of “shock and awe” here, but laser-overkill aside, it does offer a pretty solid feature set for $70.
