Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 49 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Took a Chance - Hit a Home Run Knew Bosch's well earned reputation for quality and that is the first thing that led me to their jigsaws. The barrel-grip I was uncertain about. It seemed like an excellent design for control and comfort but I had no experience with it. First time I used it I was truly impressed with the ease and precision of control it has. The natural way you hold the saw and the power it has made every cut accurate and almost effortless. This is a tool I will use often and count on for many years I can tell. May 13, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AWESOME JIG SAW!!! I'm a finish carpenter and needed a barrel grip jig saw to mount a my "coping foot tool" for cutting crowns. The Bosch JS470EB was the recommended jig saw for the Collins Coping Foot. The barrel grip allows you to hold the jig saw upside down with the coping foot and there is no variable speed trigger switch. You want to run it at full speed when doing coping cuts. The blade guide is steady and easy to control. Highly recommend the Bosch Jig Saw. October 22, 2013
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Nice saw but...could use a light I got this for X-mas and have used a couple of times so far but for the most part it is a decent saw. My main gripe is that you cannot see the line you are cutting unless you lean way down in front of the machine and even then I struggle following the line. It is not all that ease to operate. I would buy a conventional D-handle saw if I had to do it again, one with a light so you can see what you are cutting. January 4, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Heavy-duty, if heavy... Great saw for the money. This was my first jigsaw purchase in 28 years. Like most woodworkers, I don't use a jigsaw every day, but when I do use it, I want power and maneuverability. This one has both. I bought the saw without seeing or testing it, so when it came I was surprised to see that it is a good bit larger and heavier than I expected. The size and weight were easy to get used to, and now I really like the saw, and would highly recommend it. January 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Heavy Jigsaw The JS470EB is a heavy-duty jigsaw that will perform over and over again with no fuss. It is a weighty saw, but the quality is evident right out of the box. This is my first Bosch tool, and it won't be my last. Fast blade changes (make sure you hold the blade when removing it - it will shoot out of the saw about 5 ft!!), fast cuts, excellent options available (even after market). Highly recommend!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This Product is a winner! I have used this product to cut out Nativity figures from 3 full size sheets of 3/4 exterior plywood. It is comfortable to use, fast cutting and handles tight corners with ease. The blade ejection systems makes changing blades quick, easy and is tool-less. No handling hot blades. I would recommend this tool to anyone looking for a high quality jigsaw. September 28, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 7-Amp Barrel Grip Jig Saw The jig saw works quite well. Admittedly, it might be more suited for those with larger hands. My wife has a hard time being able to control the saw as she isn't able to comfortably wrap her fingers around the barrel. I have read other reviews saying that this saw is quite loud, and while the saw does make a substantial sound, I wouldn't necessarily call it noisy by any means. It doesn't seem to be any louder than other tools in the shop. November 11, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Accuracy and ease! I love this jig saw. The blade change is quick and easy. The barrell grip gives greater feel and control while cutting; which is essential when following scribe lines. Would recommend this saw to anyone professional or hobbyist. July 25, 2014
