My next Jigsaw after a Craftsman for 40+ years!
Initial unpacking and checking out all the features ... looks like it will perform up to the high customer reviews I read online!

Awesome Endurance and quality.
I purchased this to replace a Bosch jigsaw I bought over 20 years ago that finally gave out.

When possible, I will always buy Bosh tools.

I have a 20 year old red and black jig saw that cuts wood but that’s it. I researched, read reviews, actually convinced the guys at the depot to let me try this saw and the yellow one, the two top saws.... Bosch was tops! Some toolmakers have a sweet spot and the jig saw is Bosch’s best. When I have used it, I felt like I could cut very intricate cuts with ease but there was enough power there to cut steel with ease... I smile every time I use it....

This tool is well built, low vibration, and relatively quiet for a jigsaw. The long cord is also handy.
One criticism is that, for the premium price that this tool commands, that Bosch would include at least a few accessories and an assortment of blades. It would cost very little, and would go a long way toward customer good will. Including blades is a good way to introduce the customer to Bosch quality, and promote future sales. I was disappointed to find that the little plastic dust extractor was a not too cheap option. REALLY??

This is the best jigsaw that I have used. I have not used Festool’s, but I’ve read some good reviews. I have no complaints about the tool. It is on the heavy side, but I think that is a good thing. The weight makes it feel more stable and easier to manipulate on detailed cuts. I did modify the case to accommodate a Bosch blade case that I keep with the saw. It doesn’t take much for me to want to customize things though.

This earned it's number one ranking for jig saws. Quality parts. Low to no vibration and cut through my hardwood like butter. Easy to use and built to last.

Good Saw
Purchased this saw to replace a battery-operated Bosch jigsaw that was 12 years old. I have lost the ability to get away from the shop, but the corded saw is noticeably more powerful. If this saw holds up as well as my first one, it will be a great purchase.

Quite an improvement from my old 1578 jig saw. Blade change system is great. Other features are easy to use. Info about speeds and orbits is now great to get on the blade packaging.

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.
