Win a DeWalt Compact Jig Saw Kit (DW317K) with a DeWalt 14-Blade Kit

About a month ago, I started rebuilding as set of stairs around two sides of my three-season porch. I had ripped them out two years ago to accomodate the installation of a ground-level paver patio. Two years later, my tolerance for my wife's "gentle nudging" wore out and I realized I had to get this project done before winter set in.

I needed to make some fancy cuts, though, but when I went to pull out my jig saw, I "remembered" that I had broken it last year but forgot to replace it.

Anyway, I was off to the hardware store, did a little shopping and, after much soul searching, realized that I really didn't need a super-expensive, super powerful cordless jig saw. What I needed in an adequate jig saw that cut straight and featured easy blade changing. And yes... a cord!

I intentionally chose a jig saw with a cord because I also wanted the jig saw to be light and be able to work all day without worrying about battery charging. Most of the more powerful cordless tools are just too heavy for my tastes... plus they don't match the power and reliability of corded units. Unless you work in the woods, you probably have an outlet within a hundred feet so the extra expense and convenience of going cordless with this tool, a tool that I don't use all that often, just didn't make sense. (Disclaimer to my cordless tool afficionados: I do think the convenience is worth it for tools that are used more often, such as cordless drills/screwdrivers. Or if you receive one for as a gift... the best way to get new tools!!)

And I really LOVE the DeWalt DW317K jigsaw kit. It is remarkably powerful, handling every cut to very wet pressure-treated wood with ease... straight as an arrow! So I went out, bought another one and have made it available to you... but only if you enter and win!!

The lucky wiiner will get the saw, a carrying bag and, since the kit only comes with one blade, I've included a DeWalt 14-blade set which should get you through some serioius projects!

We are giving away one (1) of these fine jig saws. Good luck!
