Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KBL Solid Jigsaw - Great Value
My father gave me a Craftsman jigsaw as a gift about 30 years ago and I've been using it ever since. The old Craftsman was fine in its day, but the head was so loose I had to angle the unit 15-20 degrees in order to cut a straight line, and when cutting circles or turns it was a nightmare.
I'm doing some home renovation and couldn't afford messy cuts on trim, so I spent about $75 on this Bosch model. Wow, I didn't know what I've been missing. This unit isn't even a top-of-the-line model and it's solid as a rock. Not only that, no more hex-head set screw to change blades.
I couldn't be more satisfied with this jigsaw. If you're a DIY guy who needs a quality jigsaw at a great price, I would recommend this model.

I am a homeowner who was looking for a reliable jig saw for some precision projects. This jig saw is powerful and cuts smooth. The value of this tool in comparing with others is also very good. I am very happy I purchased this jig saw!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MiMike Cheap quick release blade chuck, has broken twice.
Do not buy this product. The blade chuck is cheap plastic and has broken twice (after being repaired with certified Bosch parts).
Subjected to occasional use, I take good care of my tools.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by User1 Good, versatile jig saw
Bought saw specifically to cut counter top to install sinks. It was actually a first doing curve cuts and the tool performed well. It was easy to handle and moved quickly through the material. Also, the Bosch blades used were a good match for the job. Visibility of the work surface is good and the tool is easy to start and control.
Had read reviews describing some trouble with blade removal, but have no issue so far. A brief description for handling blade jam events accompanied the tool and will be helpful if a problem does ever occur.
Soft case is okay, but not ideal.

Easy to use and cuts great! This is one brand that I can always count on to do the job and this saw is no exception.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by WKing Don't buy. Poor design of blade holder.
The release ring split and will no longer hold the blade in. I called customer service and was directed to a tool repair store. There was no admission of a faulty design. I have some quality Bosch tools but this one was used once and now doesn't make it out of the bag.

I've used my Jig Saw on a number of projects now, each time with great confidence. It's light, easy to handle and steer. Best of all is the blade changing feature makes switching blades super easy. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by John3932 Exactly what I needed.
This is the first new Jig Saw I have ever bought. The old Craftsman that I inherited from my father finally gave up. The new technology really improves cutting in wood. I was impressed with the way adjusting the saw made the cut cleaner. Glad I decided on this one.
