      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.

      I manage a Model Shop for the School of Architecture at the University of Florida. It can be very hectic and the students are extremely hard on equipment. As I transition hand tools over to Bosch, I have found them to be among, if not the best. The students have put this jig saw through its paces and it is still going strong and maintains its accuracy. Miter saw and drills are on the way.

      Was looking for a replacement jigsaw that burned out last year and am very pleased with this Bosch jigsaw. Blade changes are a snap and it cuts as expected...no surprises. Have a Bosch tablesaw and dishwasher...outstanding products!

      Blade securing system the best.

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

      Bought this product because my old jigsaw blade securing screw was stripped and it would not keep the blade stable. Really like the blade changing and securing and the overall balance of the tool when in use. Blade guide gives the tool a solid feel when cutting thick material. Tool has ample power and I am really pleased with the quality for the price.

      This tool did everything expected and more. It is very easy to operate, provides a great cut, and the anti-splinter insert is a great plus.

      I was eagerly looking forward to using my new Jig Saw for the first time when I went out to my Garage an realized that thieves had broken into my garage and stolen about $1,250.00 worth of my power tools, including my new Jig saw. I will have to purchase another one soon so I can try it out. I will find a safer place to store it next time.

      I bought this tool for doing small projects at home. It is very handy and useful. The only issue I have is some splintering of wood when I cut it.
