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 78.

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.

So far, it's done the job fine. However, I like tools that have longevity, and only time will tell whether this saw meets that criteria.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saw I was using a skill saw for a few years a d finally upgraded to the js260. The difference was night and day. The pressure sensitive trigger is probably my favorite part.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best jigsaw on the market, hands down I've been using this style of Bosch jigsaw for 30 years, I've had many of them, I currently have both a corded, and cordless model.....I won't use anything else

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great power I had an old jigsaw that was probably 40 years old. It finally broke after years of work. It would cut, but I had to give it a push while it labored away slowly. My new Bosch is like a chainsaw by comparison. It is strong and I almost feel like I need to hold it back while it cuts away furiously. I am impressed with its power as well as its quick blade change system. This is a great jigsaw.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lifting Rod Unfortunately the mechanism where you attache the saw blade is not very sturdy since it is made of plastic. Used my jigsaw 3-4X and this part that holds the jigsaw blade broke. Replacing this part requires that you replace the whole lifting rod which is nearly half the cost of a new jigsaw. This jigsaw handles well but not very sturdy. A real disappointment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from jig saw I am week end user. This so far has been a great little saw. I have shoulder issues and this saw does everything I need without a lot of weight. Like it a lot.
