I purchased this tool after burning out 3 competitors jigsaws in as many years. After using it almost daily for more than 20 years as a flooring contractor, I can say it is worth every penny I paid and more. The tool-less blade change is has worked flawlessly. This saw works as well today as it did when I bought it, which is impressive since I've dropped it onto concrete from off my table saw dozens of times. It doesn't look pretty anymore, but there is no need to replace it. When it does die, another Bosch will replace it

I recieved this jigsaw (JS260) as a gift. Tried to use it for the first time and after 30 min. of trying to get a blade in it, I did some research and found that it does not take Bosch U-shank blades. Ok. I tried a standard T-shank blade and after an hour of bloody fingers, internet research and instruction book reading, I realized that I, and hundreds of others willing to express their disappointment in Bosch on line, had gotten an lemon. Their innovative tool-less blade change system is worthless and the engineer who came up with the JS260 jigsaw probably should be fired. Very disappointed with my first and last experience with Bosch! Most frustrated experience I have had in years.

Comments about Bosch Tools 6.0A Top-Handle Jig Saw:
I got this for Christmas after having done A LOT of research and comparing. I've used numerous big brand jig saws but they don't compare to the Bosch quality. A very smooth and detailed cut. Very easy to hold, handle and control. I would recommend this saw to anyone who is looking for a quality saw for a good price.

met my expectations
from Houston, Tx
easy to handle with various cutting surfaces. Switching blades was very easy.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Worked great until the blade lock and release quite working after 3 projects. So with that being said don't waste your money on this horrible design. Learn from my mistake.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
My wife brought me a Bosch jig saw as a gift. I was really impressed by how well it handled and how well it cut the wood. I used it to cut plywood, plywood siding and 2 x 4â€™s. It didnâ€™t have any trouble going through it there was plenty of power and easy to use. The more you pull the trigger to more power you have. No comparison to my old saw. I wonâ€™t look or buy anything else besides a Bosch because Iâ€™ve been so impressed with their products. And they all come with a nice carrying case. :) I would definitely recommend this product.

Love tool as a smooth working and very controllable tool. Excellent design with quick change blade lock feature. Expect to get years of service life. To me, a best buy!

Th so saw will keep you always confident when using I cut circle with the saw I was once in a certain situation where my band saw just wouldn't turn on so what I did was I got the bosch metal cutting blades and cut the metal with that it got the job done so now I can put food on my family's plate thank you bosh
Poor design in blade lock.
from Hamilton, ON, Canada
I have used my jigsaw once. The release ring split and does not hold a blade. I believe this is a design flaw. I requested assistance and they directed me to a tool repair store. I didn't even get a phone call from a service representative.
Great jig saw to use around the house
from Jacksonville, FL, United States
I purchased this jig saw few days ago do cut laminate flooring and it was working better than big table saw. Very smooth and strong tool. I used T-shank blades for laminate and the cuts very clean with no chips. I have couple other Bosch tools and I am extremely satisfied with them.
After limited use....
from Perth County, ON, Canada
After limited use, the Bosch JS260 Jigsaw release ring split and will no longer hold the blade in. I was under the impression that Bosch made quality tools but this part appears to be easily broken rendering the saw unusable. The saw was perhaps used a dozen times.
Great power tool with great features
from DeKalb, IL, United States
I bought this tool to replace one similar that I had just bought and would not do the job. This tool was a great help in building a machine shed for my 4 year old grandson. The tool was a good value for the price and had a feature that I have never seen on a sabre saw.
