Customer Questions & Answers

Type of blade?

The product specification says it includes 2 U shank blades. Yet a few bullet points lower in parentheses "it doesn't accept U shank blades." Is this a typo and the JS260 comes with 2 T shank blades? Thanks, Kevin
Asked by: Klauck3
The JS260 accepts T-shank blades only and comes with two T-shank blades.

With a longer blade, will this saw cut through 1.5" smoothly?

Looking to cut some 2x4s, thanks!
Asked by: cbump
Thanks for your question. The JS260 has a maximum cutting capacity of 2-11/16" into wood so it will work for cutting 2x4s.

Customer Reviews

6 Amp Corded Variable Speed Top-Handle Jig Saw with Carrying Bag is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 61.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY! I bought this Jig Saw 1 year ago and used it seldom (read 3 or 4 times). Then I started a major project at the cottage and encountered the same problem as other reviewers... the plastic key on the barrel used to hold the blade in place broke. I called Bosch customer service in the USA and they were no help. I explained that I went to HD and looked at their other Bosch jig saws, as well as Dewalt, Makita, Milwaukee etc. Non of the others use this flimsy part. I tried to explain to customer service guy that this was obviously a design fault. They could care less what I thought and told me that I should order the part in question, number 29 on their parts page, at a cost of $29.95 US. It doesn't make sense to pay that much for a part when the regular price is about $100 Canadian on sale regularly at many stores. I have many other Bosch tools that I am pleased with (table saw, 12' mitre saw, belt sander etc) . My recommendation is do not waste your money on this cheap saw with the design fault. It's junk even for an entry level machine. I ended up buying a Dewalt and am very pleased with the quality of cut and durability of the machine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Saw, Plenty of Power and Easy to control I bought this to replace an very old and lower quality jigsaw. It is not a tool that I use often so I did not go for top of Delete repeated wordline but I was ready for a better tool than my previous entry level brand. I've used this saw a handful of times while modifying a closet shelf unit. The saw is plenty powerful, provides excellent control and it is smooth as silk. I own several other Bosch tools and I really like the quality and feel of these tools. I recommend this for anyone that is progressing beyond basic DIY skills and up to professional tool users.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Purchased with a 10-pack of Bosch blades and a 2-pack of Spyder skeletonized blades a month ago. It's a joy to use with the tool-less blade change, variable speed, and ability to limit the maximum rpm. Cutting 1/4" birch plywood for top caps on kitchen cupboards turned out well. (Taping the cut lines to prevent splintering is a good tip.) I may use it later this winter to cut the frame on a wrecked Honda motorcycle as we build a static display to run the engine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little saw! I bought it specifically to cut a window on a metal building, I had tried with a rotary saw with a metal blade with very poor results. This Jigsaw was amazing I was able to cut 4 windows in record time. Dod not have any problems with the blade load as I had read in other reviews.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great results! I've used several different palm/hand sanders but none of them can compare to my Bosch sander. It is easy to use, (no vibrations) and sucks up the fine dust keeping my work area clean. I use it to sand surfaces that I've hand planned and it works great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features very well made I bought this jigsaw to replace one I had that wore out. Could not have made a better choice. This saw cuts through anything you got like butter. Really like how easy it is to insert or remove blades. Very well made. Bosch has a winner with this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Tool I bought this jigsaw about 1 month ago after a lot of research. I have used it extensively and I am very pleased with the performance. Bosch produces excellent quality tools and so far this saw is no exception.
