Review

This is Bosch’s “middle-of-the-pack” jigsaw: It’s not the least expensive or most expensive, and its feature set reflects that.
It’s got a powerful motor with variable speed dial as well as variable trigger, but the trigger has an annoying delay before the motor responds. It cut nicely in all materials when using a sharp blade. The top grip is comfortable to hold, with a rubber overmold grip that’s not too large in diameter. The blade guide roller kept the blade tracking pretty close to 90° to the foot (about 1/32" of deflection in 3/4"-thick stock). The foot tilts in both directions, but there are no markings other than the 0° detent, so it can be tricky to set an exact bevel angle. And even though it’s easy to release the blade from the chuck with a front-mounted lever, it does not eject the blade the way the higher-end Bosch saws do. But overall, this is a really good jigsaw for a reasonable price.
