Looks like I'll go with a jigsaw then. Thanks everyone!
Good luck

Those are just brand names I've seen that I know people who buy for jigsaw's and haven't had a issue.
Of those the only really quality brand is Milwaukee; the others are cheapo brands that are intended for home users who occasionally need them for small jobs. My dad had a number of Black&Decker tools and they just felt cheap, and when the jigsaw died my mom replaced it with a skil (low end line owned by Bosch) which was better than the B&D but not as good as my Bosch.

I personally have almost exclusively Bosch tools (love them) and the other brands I can really recommend are DeWalt and Milwaukee.


Edit: the Dremels are actually very good; just they are not meant to operate under high torque but rather high RPM, high torque can easily burn out the brushes or cause them to bind.
That said, now that I have a large assortment of good power tools, I primarily use the Dremel for tight spaces and detail work.

I have to agree. Black and Decker used to be pretty good up until about 25 years ago; solid metal construction and wore like iron. Now they are hobbyist tools at best. DeWalt tools are pretty good, but be prepared to pay for them. I've had the opportunity to work at both Home Depot and Sears (Tools Dept) while in college so many tools have passed my hands. I try to personally avoid anything over-engineered and made mostly out of plastic.

As a side note, if you are just looking for something to bang around with try Harbor Freight. They sell decently constructed power tools (better than most of what is available at Home Depot or Lowes) for cheap. The major drawback is that they are all bright orange. If you can live with it they are alright.
