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.

Poor design in blade lock.
from Hamilton, ON, Canada
Comments about Bosch Tools 6.0A Top-Handle Jig Saw:
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.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
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.
Poor design of "tool less" blade insert
from Altadena, CA, United States
I've owned my JS260 for a short time and it is already broken. The blade won't stay inserted. Very poor design.
from Gainesville, FL.
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.
Easy to Use
from Roseville, CA, United States
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!
from Santa Cruz, CA, United States
I am sold on the quality and performance on this and all of my Bosch power tools.
Blade securing system the best.
from Mundare, AB, Canada
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.
Strong cutting ability
from East Greenwich, RI, United States
