Hmmmm...... should have bought the blue one. IIRC, My Bosch 1587
Progressor actually has some kind of vent off the motor fan that you
turn off and on that will blow the sawdust out of the way.
I have used the big DW jig saw, and it is nice indeed. A good Bosch
blade on that thing and it really makes nice cuts.
Thinking about that for a minute, doesn't DW make a jigsaw that has a
little blower gizmo on it?

Have you checked to see if it's got a little switch on it?
Mate of mine was screaming blue murder about the same thing with his new
WASS this? I said, pointing.
I think it's off by default so that when you use a dustsucker hose, it
doesn't blow dust away from the sucker intake - and when you don't, it blows
clear of the cutting line.

A lot of these jigsaws are designed to have a dust collection hole

away the vacuum probably would not work as well.
Way back when, 12+ years ago when DeWalt came out with their toolless
blade change model, many were known for letting go of the blade. There
were reports of that and a friend had one that did that all the time. A
real pisser trying to get the blade out of the wood if it was pinched.
