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.

Purchased with a 10-pack ...

By 

from Coeur d'Alene, ID, United States

Comments about Bosch Tools 6.0A Top-Handle Jig Saw:

Purchased with a 10-pack of Bosch blades and a 2-pack of Spyder skeletonized blades a month ago. It's a joy to use with the tool-less blade change, variable speed, and ability to limit the maximum rpm. Cutting 1/4" birch plywood for top caps on kitchen cupboards turned out well. (Taping the cut lines to prevent splintering is a good tip.) I may use it later this winter to cut the frame on a wrecked Honda motorcycle as we build a static display to run the engine.

Great saw

Comments about Bosch Tools 6.0A Top-Handle Jig Saw:

Easy to change blade, does move dust away from blade area. Only improve on would be to add a light to the work area.

Great little saw!

By 

from Coopertown, TN, United States

Comments about Bosch Tools 6.0A Top-Handle Jig Saw:

I bought it specifically to cut a window on a metal building, I had tried with a rotary saw with a metal blade with very poor results. This Jigsaw was amazing I was able to cut 4 windows in record time. Dod not have any problems with the blade load as I had read in other reviews.

Great saw!

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.

Comments about Bosch Tools 6.0A Top-Handle Jig Saw:

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.

Great jigsaw

By

Comments about Bosch Tools 6.0A Top-Handle Jig Saw:

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 4’s. It didn’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 won’t look or buy anything else besides a Bosch because I’ve been so impressed with their products. And they all come with a nice carrying case. :) I would definitely recommend this product.
