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.

Best jig saw I've owned
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!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

If you want the best jigsaw, from the company that wrote the book on jigsaws, then this is your tool. No gimmicks, just an amazing, powerful, and durable saw. Easy to use and powerful enough for any task.
Runs like a Swiss watch .
from Mills River, NC, United States
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 .

I received this jig saw as a gift. I finally put it to use the other day making mop trolley platform. Installing and removing the blade was real easy and fast. The feel of the handle was great controlling the saw. I am sure this tool will be used for other projects and I am looking forward to use it again.

Good, Reliable Jig Saw
from Tyler, TX
I've used this saw a few times and getting more from it each time I use it. I do better at cutting an accurate line with a slower speed and less blade orbit and have also set the dial to reduce the max cutting speed. With the high speeds, I can cut through wood like it's butter. I really like the blade guide to keep the saw blade straight for accurate cuts. Also the lever in the front to quickly change blades. The saw has a blower which I use but it doesn't blow right at the cutting point but about 1/4" to 1/2" in front of the cutting point.
third times a charm
from Colorado Springs, CO, United States
My first experience with a jigsaw was with a low end consumer model which rounded curves like a truck without power steering. The second was Definitely an upper end but was difficult to use. I finally decided to go with the best , and am happy I did. Plenty of power, to go through 1 1/2 inches of material, using the correct blade. The blower works well enough, but the tool must be at maximum for it to fully function. Control knobs are tight. I also purchased the jig for cutting 8 inch disks out of 3/4 inch oak. after a little practice, it worked as I had hoped. A very well made and functional tool.

After having a couple less expensive jigsaws I finally bought one with power! It's a bit heavier, but it cuts through plywood without lacking the power needed. I should have bought this rears ago!
Powerful, with little vibration
from Oconto, WI, United States
It's well worth every penny, super long power cord, and the quick change blade feature is awesome. Would of gave 5 stars, but it needs a light, or a laser.
