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.

I had a jig saw from the 60's so I figured it's time for a new one. What a difference. Variable speed control and speed setting. Very comfortable cuts like a dream. Super tool.

Power and accuracy

By

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

I got this saw specifically to help me complete a custom hardwood table. The wood is aged NW Madrona, very hard and 2.5 inches thick. The JS470 does an outstanding job.....true, straight and efficient

Highly Recommened

By

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

The saw works better then expected. The blade lock works great, I tried the blade lock on a Dewalt after reading reviews and I struggled to get the blade properly locked in. I like that the shoe has a steel insert to resist scratches and wear.

Great saw

By 

from Albany, NY, United States

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

I haven't owned a jig saw for many years so I'm sure all of the newer saws are improved but this saw is great. I forgot my circular saw recently and used this saw all day to fill in and I'm amazed it did so well. Accurate and easy.

Great Saw

By

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

I recently retired and now have time to spend on woodworking projects that I enjoy. I decided to replace the jig saw I have had for years. After doing the research and reading the reviews I bought the Bosch JS470E. Unbelievable! This saw is Smooth, Powerful, and Precise. Everything I hoped for and more.

Best jig saw I've owned

By 

from Dallas, TX, United States

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

Such a great tool! I used to try not to use jig saws because I always had trouble making good cuts but once I bought this Bosch and used it, I now try to find an excuse to make a cut with it. It has great features and is very powerful. Not only does it have variable speed trigger but you can change the overall speed with a simple dial. The blade is really easy to change and the controls for blade orbital action and debris blower to keep your cutting line visible are simple to use. Great design!

Runs like a Swiss watch .

By 

from Mills River, NC, United States

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

I needed a new jigsaw to replace another brand that was wearing out . I looked for an American made tool with no luck . When I saw this tool was made in Switzerland , and from past experience with Swiss-made products , I decided to give it a try . I am very pleased with the performance of this tool .
