Thumbs ups
So far it doing well, bought it to replace a very old Bosch that I can't even find parts for. Would love to have it repaired. The JS470E is the workhorse now helping me finish a 22' x 24' TREK deck. Blades gum up but the saw powers through. A good addition to the tool chest. Bought it because the construction crew at work uses theirs to cut through 2"x 24" x 24" steel floor tile for the clean room. It the only brand that would last on the job.

Just purchased for wooding projects. Set cut speed to Max and cut 2 6 in. circles. No problems. Works great.

JS470E sabre saw
I had an old Craftsman sabre saw. I had a table top of 3/4" plywood veneer to cut into a pattern (1920s. My saw burned the wood and wouldn't do the job. This saw is incredible. I used a 20tpi blade and cut a 2'x'2.5' patterned top out without a problem. The edges, almost, did not need sanding. When blade gets hot, flip lever and the hot blade literally pops out. At med to high speeds the saw deflects the air going out to a blower to make it super easy to see your mark. This saw has the power to do anything. Love it.

Great tool!
I brought this because my old, old Bosch jigsaw was unable to be repaired - parts not available. This model has the same weight and feel of my old one and I am happy to use it with new features. I don't like the plexi-guide as I can't see the blade as well. Love everything else about it.

No light or laser makes this saw not so attractive
The saw seems well-built and speed control is good. A pain that it won't accept standard blade "U" blades, but a real irritation that it has neither a light nor a laser.
For $160 it does NOT shine against my old $30 Ryobi Laser Saw. Returning the Bosch and looking further.... big disappointment. I should have researched more.

Blade has a lot of side action
This is the first and only jigsaw I have owned, but I would say I am definitely on the negative end of the spectrum regarding my experience. I've used it on several occasions and have yet to have a satisfactory cut even with guides etc in place. I've even upgraded the blade and still had a lot of uneven cuts/side action.

I have had this saw for a good while now and I love it. Easy to change the blade and low vibrations.

Steady saw that is constructed excellently.
I'm a weekend warrior, and my very old jigsaw was no longer up to the task of increasing skill when doing things with it. It would vibrate strongly and the shoe on it kept slipping to angles I didn't want. I was done fixing it up.
This new saw is a dream to work with. Given proper guidance this cuts very well without a lot of vibration. I have cut some 1/4" thick plexiglass using a steel blade and this saws vibrations are kept in check well enough for the plexiglass not to split or break off. Fantastic.

Has been an excellent tool
I have had this saw for 21 years and it has seen a lot of use over the years. I have cut wood, plastic, aluminum, and steel with it. If it ever gives up on me, I will certainly purchase another Bosch like this one. Before I retired I work in construction and maintenance for 40 years and have use different brands of jigsaws as well as other power tools and this one was and still is my favorite jigsaw.

Which jigsaw has a light?
Don K on Nov 24, 2016
The old 1590evs has an excellent blade guide system that grips the blade in 2 places along it's length that greatly minimized the "flex" in the blade along a curved cut--especially in 2x material! Does this model retain that same system? If not, which models do? Thank you.

BEST ANSWER: Yes it does.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 120 days.
