Default Need recommendation for jigsaw and paint sprayer

Hey guys - I looked over all these posts and didn't find exactly the information I was looking for. My 30+ year old B&D scrolling jigsaw (which was an excellent tool. B&D USED TO be well built tools) recently crapped out. As I recall, I paid $17 at the time. ANYWAY, I'm not a contractor, and money's short right now, so I can't consider expensive tools. What do y'all recommend for a decent, not too expensive jigsaw that will last me awhile? Are any corded tools still made in America? I also need an airless paint sprayer to spray the exterior of my 2 story house with latex. Any recommendations? Thank you in advance to all!

Why don't you try Lowes or Home Depot's tool rentals and see if they have a commercial spray rig you could rent.
