This is shaped like most, if not all, jigsaws of its type, having a handle at the top that houses the power button and a locking button. Then there's the footplate at the bottom which the blade slides through in order for it to do it's job. At the rear, above the footplate, there's a hole that you connect a vacuum nozzle to in order to suck away the dust as you saw. Then, on the front, just behind the blade, there's a little hole that blows out air in order to clear the dust away from the line you're cutting.
It has a good 3 metre cable slotting into the back of the saw which helps keep the wire from the blade itself.
That's really what this looks like. There's no bells and whistles, as they say. There's no fancy lights and levers. It's simply a jigsaw that cuts in either a vertical or an angled manner.
To get the angles cut you have to loosen the footplate, which is done by unscrewing the two screws on the underside a little bit. Then you move the plate to what ever angle you want, tightening the screws back up when you're done.
The blade changing is a little awkward on this as it consists of unscrewing a couple of screws then tightening them up, once you've positioned the blade in place. This can take a little getting used to as positioning the blade can be tricky.
The good thing about this screw system is that this saw takes both types of blades, the 'T' and the 'U', so it doesn't matter which one you buy from the DIY store.
The other good thing about this saw is the price, that being about £25, which is great value for something that does exactly what it's supposed to do and it does it well.
For me, this is one of those jigsaws that the DIYer should have, or have used, as it is simple to use, easy enough to set up and feels safe enough for even those who are a little afraid of power tools.
