"I needed a jigsaw to fit my kitchen as my 10 year old black and decker was really past its sell by date. I decided on Bosch as I had used them on site before and found them sturdy and reliable.
I was really impressed with every aspect of this jigsaw, it feels solid & dependable, even the carry case seems well made and like it might last.
This saw gave a lovely smoth and straight cut in melamine faced chipoboard, ply, solid walnut & steel (with the right blade!) I liked the quick blade change which is light years ahead of the fiddly allen key or long screwdriver affair I remember from years ago. Variable pendulum action is good for a faster cut where necessary, and the trigger gives a nice predictable start / speed variation for introducing to the workpiece.
I really can't find anything to criticise with this jigsaw. Great for a diy project, but having worked as a furniture fitter in the past I would feel confident taking this on site with me."
"After buying many cheap corded jigsaw which never last long. I decided for this one which was on offer. I am a diy'er but doing quite a lot and I never had such a good tool to use. I replaced all my saws with this one as I could do scriting boards even the angle for connexion, cutting doors, worktops to size, and much more..."
