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
All standard jig saw blades will fit this tool regardless of manufacture origin.

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

Looking to cut some 2x4s, thanks!
Asked by: cbump
It should, although I haven't tried it. It has the power but cutting 1 1/2 inches would need to slow it down considerably.

6 Amp Corded Variable Speed Top-Handle Jig Saw with Carrying Bag is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 66.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Best and Favorite Tool I bought this tool back in 2002 to replace a tool that lasted only 3 months. I cannot say enough about how excellent my Bosch has been. It has easily cut through steel, oak, sheet wall-board and laminate flooring without any problem. Sure, the blades got dull, as they should, but never broke any blade. It doesn't vibrate like all other brands, and we all know the brand names. Need a Good tool ? Go buy a BOSCH.

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.

I really like the quick blade attachment and the availability now of reversible blades.... I used it to cut a small hole in sheet rock for a shower head and it did it's job. I hadn't used it until recently so could not rate it. Bosch has a good reputation for quality tools. This tool meets that expectation. An added bonus it comes with a tool soft case for the tool and blades, etc. Keeps it clean and organized.

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 best jigsaw ever has a heavy and sturdy feel. goes through one-inch oak like a hot knife through butter. makes easy and fast small-radius curves. blade change is a breeze. great value for the money.
