      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.

      Great Jig Saw

      By gat50

      from Hudson, WI, United States

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

      I've used the JS470E for one project so far, cutting several pieces of plywood for a dust collection box for my table saw.  I made all straight cuts; some were at a bevel so I could make the box narrower at the bottom than at the top and have ends that were flat on the bottom and the top. I used a straight edge guide to make the cuts. The JS470E was smooth, fast, accurate and easy to use. The blade did not wander from the cut lines. Vibration was minimal.

      amazing life!

      By carol147

      from Cleveland, OH, United States

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

      I'm a public artist and in 1996, I received a commission to create art for a rapid transit station in Cleveland, Ohio. I bought a Bosch jigsaw and cordless drill for the project. With the jigsaw I cut 60 6' tall intricate aluminum sculpture sections. Since then I've used this saw routinely as a shop tool and cut everything from plexiglas to steel with it. It's still going strong and is working fine as is my Bosch cordless drill. Before this time i had several jigsaws that jiggled as i sawed and eventually burned out with use. I always tell everyone, Bosch tools are sturdy and dependable and will last forever. I love them! Carol  A, artist

      The "Real Deal Holifeild"

      By Mastercrafter

      from Dallas, TX, United States

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

      This saw is worth every penny. It has a great balance and  is very well made. The small things matter here. Tool free blade changing...that works. Unlike many, Dewalt come to mind, that claim tool free, but you have to burn your fingers to get the  blade out. Long power cord is another small, but thoughtful touch. Made in Switzerland! Like a fine watch.     If I had a negative? A small LED light aimed at the cutting  line/surface would make this the absolute BEST EVER.

      Cuts like a hot knife through butter

      By Meee

      from SouthWest California

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

      I bought this because my old jigsaw had a blade-holder problem that I just didn't want to spend the money on to have it repaired. So, I researched several brands and settled on the Bosch. It featured a more straight-forward blade holder and guide design that was a lot less complicated than what was on my old jigsaw. This jigsaw not only cuts well but, easily stays true and straight. I also like the way it keeps the sawdust out of my way. I'm very pleased with this purchase.
