Blade Deflection

The ad copy mentions "precision" a couple of times, but HOW much blade deflection can I actually expect with this premium Bosch jigsaw? I know user technique influences performance with handheld tools, but between the angularity of the blade with respect to the shoe and blade deflection, how straight can I expect a curved cut to be on, say nominal 1" oak, or maybe a 2x4? Two degrees? One degree? More? Less?
Asked by: HankB
The JS572 jigsaw has a double roller blade guidance system that virtually eliminates blade wander.

How to reduce the vibration?

I just got the jigsaw last week. The vibration is so bad. Is there any way to reduce it, adjust it? Another thing is it is really hard to use the Bosch reverse blades. It bumps on the wood, and come up with break the wood before cutting it through. The last small thing is the anti-splinter melted after I used it a couple of times. Is that normal?

Customer Reviews

7.2 Amp Corded Variable Speed T-Shank Barrel-Grip Jig Saw with Hard Case is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 30.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bosch JS572EBL I purchased this jig saw on a recommendation from a friend as I do a lot of wood working and was not satisfied with my jigsaw. Have owned many brands of jigsaws in the past, and wanted one that was reliable for fine work. After purchasing and using this jigsaw extensively, I was extremely happy with this product. Dust collector works well and the saw is easy to use with minimum vibration which is important to me for my use. Use this saw repeatedly in my work and found it to be most reliable as are other Bosch tools I use. Would highly recommend to anyone requiring a high quality tool.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works well, but has significant design flaws The JS572EB is a very nice jigsaw (and it better be considering the prce!). It produces clean cuts and has enough power to chomp through hardest materials. That said, I believe that Bosch needs to start working on an improved model ASAP. (1) Vibration is pervasive as is the noise, esp at the highest speed. (2) The anti-splinter insert will become loose after you put it in and take it out only a few times. It will not work with the non-marring cover. The anti-splinter insert is designed to aid with fine adjusmtent of the blade for square cutting. Once it becomes loose, it is useless for that purpose (more on that below). (3) The US market jigsaw has a cast aluminum foot plate (Europeans get magnesium). This aluminum is quite soft - as a result it will get a new scratch around the spherical part each time you change the angle for bevel cutting. (4) The fine square adjustment is hard to access and is very feedly. It relies on an eccentric bolt to press against a side of a cutout in the footplate. The bolt is held from spinning freely by nothing else but some thread-lock. After a couple of adjustments the bolt will either start spinning freely and/or it will dig into the cutout - both effectively negating its purpose. I can't overstate this: considering that the majority of cuts need to be square - this whole mechanism must be changed to allow for positive, worry-free 90 degrees adjustments.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cuts like butter, clean lines I've owned a few retail jigsaws and I've never thought of them as precision devices. They've always cut sloppily and were a pain to use. And worse the quality of the cuts required lots of cleaning up with other tools to finish the job. The Bosch barrel grip jigsaw is simply a thing of beauty. It cuts cleanly and smoothly. There is no where near as much vibration as I was used to. It's what I believe to the the "Rolls Royce" of jigsaws. As they say you get what you pay for, and in this case, the Bosche might be more expensive, but it DELIVERS big-time. Buy once, cry once. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You Will Love This Saw! I purchased the JS572EBL based on the great reviews it received. The thing that intrigued me the most was all of the top-handle jigsaw converts that are now completely sold on the JS572EBL barrel-grip saw and how it changed the way they work with wood. Being the skeptic and a top-handle user for over 40 years, I reluctantly decided to give it a shot based on the reviews and Bosch’s reputation. “THIS SAW IS EVERYTHING THEY SAY IT IS!” Once I got the hang of it I could not believe the power and accuracy this saw has. All of the features incorporated into this saw (LEDs, dust blower, quick-change blade system, blade tracking system, dust blower, L-BOXX, etc.) are very useful and not just gimmicks. I do have one complaint. I keep trying to find new ways to use it so my wife complains that I am spending too much time in the shop. I too am now a barrel-grip convert after using the Bosch JS572EBL. I highly recommend this saw. WARNING: Not for people with small hands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best jig saw I have ever used I have always used bosch jig saw because its one of many things they have always done very well. This is the best jig saw they have ever come out with. Its got all the features you need and more. The LED lights are brilliant and the swiveling dust collection tube is top notch innovation. This saw makes unbelievably clean and square cuts. The barrell grip feels excelent and balenced for cutting multiple differnt ways. I cant say enough good things about the JS572EBL

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jig saw This is a great saw works well for coping and very easy to handle

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well Balanced tool, precise, powerful What a pleasure to use the Bosch after owning other brands. Mostly appreciate its balance and square accurate cutting capabilities. Blade ejection is a helpful feature. The led light and dust blower are absolutely great to have, both are in use all the time. having the long power cord eliminates needing an extension cord for most applications.
