Smooth like a sewing machine
My craftsman jigsaw died after 30 years and I couldn't be happier with this smooth running bosch replacement. I just finished using it on a flooring project. The only complaint I have is the blade view is blocked by the guard, so it requires looking off to the side to see the blade cutting. A light might help this some.
The saw is light and compact. The quick change blade system is a joy to use, no more screwdriver to change blades.

Great Saw By BOSCH
I tried the JS5 figuring it was going to match
other saws I have owned. I was very pleased
when I used it as it is sturdy enough for
heavy sawing and surprisingly smooth for detail
cutting. I have used it on the following materials with great success. Fiberglass, wood, steel, plastic molding and trim.

Power with Precision
This beautiful Swiss made saw is very smooth and quiet in operation, and it's compactness makes it very easy to use. It's just as powerful as my larger Bosch saber saws, almost a pound lighter, plus it's much smaller. The blade change mechanism is really cool, as you merely push the blade in to lock it, then twist the holder to release it. They thought of everthing!

It's like brand new
This was supposed to be re-conditioned but it appears to be a brand new product. Perhaps it was only a display model that was repackaged. It works great just like the one that Norm Abram uses on New Yankee Workshop.

Great Jigsaw
Very impressed so far with the Bosch Jigsaw. Would highly recommend. A little difficult to follow the blade cut during use, but I think I will adapt easily.

Excellent tool
I purchased this after using an old jigsaw for most of a project. This one is far smoother, quieter, and more powerful than the one I used before. It is simple to change blades, and they stay in securely. I would whole-heartedly recommend this product.
