I have large hands, and this jigsaw accommodates them better than most. The grip is solid, comfortable and easy to handle. The only improvement would be, for me, an angled handle (lower at the back) for a more ergonomic grip. The saw performs better than most others that I've used, though how it holds up under extended use remains to be seen. Blade changes are easy and fast, a plus when doing production work. The blade stays true, for the most part, unless cutting curves into very thick stock. But slowing the feed helps prevent blade wander. Overall, after just a month of use, I'm decidedly happy with my purchase.

First of all I like Bosch. I have had many tools from them for years. but this jigsaw just falls short. We are an aerospace firm that makes custom interiors for large (A340 Airbus and Boeing up to 747) air craft. We do multimillion dollar jobs several times a year. We have been using these for about a year and are looking to replace them. The vertical cut ability is not always straight. When we are trimming at +/- 0.020" a perfectly vertical cut is mandatory. Also the distance from the bottom of the foot to the top of the stroke is too far. We are cutting composite panels that have a phenolic honeycomb core. So the top and bottom are the only real cutting areas as the phenolic is so thin that it offers no resistance. What happens is in panels thicker then 0.250" using the diamond grit blades we must use it has a tendency to pull the blade too high and damaging the bottom surface. Other than these issues which are a game changer for us. This saw is well insulated and almost vibration free. The blade changer may be the best in the industry. The build quality is very high and replacing parts has been great.

It's Solid

By 

from Morehead, KY, United States

Comments about Bosch Tools 7.0A Top-Handle Jig Saw:

I haven't had a chance to use it too much yet but my initial impression is very positive. It has some weight to it and I like that in a jig saw to keep things steady. When looking at different models this one seemed to have a heaftier blade release/retention lever. It has a much longer cord than my previous jig saws which is nice. Adjustment knobs are convenient. I may add more once I've had the chance to run it through some different materials.

Rugged and Powerful Saw

By 

from Smithtown, NY, United States

Comments about Bosch Tools 7.0A Top-Handle Jig Saw:

Without using this jigsaw extensively yet, I can attest to the power, speed control and overall solid feel to this tool. I would give it five stars but were it not for the overall heavy weight, lack of guide or laser and edge/circle cutter accessory. I can live without a laser guide, but it would be a nice addition. Holding and starting the heavy saw is somewhat awkward but I am getting used to it. As far as the circle cutter, I am unimpressed with the cheap construction and inaccuracy, yet I will make use of it as a more reliable edge guide. Overall, this is a saw to grow with and build on. Getting over 30 years from a cheaper less powerful competitor, I feel I made it to the 'Big Leagues' and will be able to achieve many years of reliable performance.

Comments about Bosch Tools 7.0A Top-Handle Jig Saw:

I recently purchase the JS470E jigsaw and it has out performed my expectations on a number of projects I have tackled I would recommend the JS47OE for anyone who needs a powerful all purpose jigsaw that performs exceedingly well for light to heavy duty projects.

Great Jig Saw

By 

from Illinois

Comments about Bosch Tools 7.0A Top-Handle Jig Saw:

Needed a new jig saw to replace my 46 year old one. The blade holder holds the blade straight and true with no wobble or twisting. At last I can saw a straight plumb line. Very well balanced and easy to hold. It is now a pleasure to be able to saw with precision.

Comments about Bosch Tools 7.0A Top-Handle Jig Saw:

Love this saw, I use it a lot to cut metal and it works perfectly, I've only used it up to 1/8" but it eats thru it. The one feature I like a lot is the drive roller right behind the blade which keeps the blade from bending. But overall I'm impressed with it completely.
