After using the saw a couple times found I couldn't get the blade to snap in and hold. On closer look the blade holder had rotated 180 degrees and was facing backwards. Installed a new shaft and chuck assembly and it worked great, twice ! Inserted a blade a couple times and after removing the blade the chuck assembly is now facing backwards.
It's going in the garbage, at least the the carrying bag is good.

Don't buy this model, it also has been superceded March 24 2011
By Benjamin S. Chin - Published on
I bought this Bosch jigsaw from Lowe's for $99.00 when my cheap $25.00 generic died. I presumed buying an expensive jigsaw from Bosch would be more durable. I was wrong. The blade holding mechanism is fragile. After using it infrequently for about 6 weeks, the spring clamping mechanism no longer secure the blade confidently. Manually turning it tighter only works temporarily until the tool vibration loosen it again.

I explained the problem to the tool tech at Lowe's. As part of his examination of the tool, he tried to adjust the blake holding mechanism but can't as the mechanism has retreated deep into the tool's housing making it almost impossible to reach. When he finally reached it after squeezing his finger into the housing, he, too, found the blake clamping mechanism loose and weak. The entire frustrating experience is one more additional reason why this tool is garbage.

Having experienced the same aggravation as I had, the Lowe's tool tech gave me credit and allowed my trading to another tool. As to not take advantage of Lowe's excellent customer service, I purchased their top-of-the-line Bosch jigsaw, $135.00. After using it just twice, I found the blake holding mechanism to be superior and blade change easier than the $99 model.

Recommendation: avoid Bosch's cheap model. Buy the expensive model.

Good saw March 30 2012
By Greystoke - Published on
Unlike the others reviewing the saw, I've had no problems with mine. I've used it extensively for a week now and the blade mechanism is fine.

It's really not that bad for the money. Oct. 13 2012
By D. M. Harman - Published on
Used this to cut out the pattern and rough out some cherry before using a router trim bit for a set of table legs I was making. If you're used to one of the cheap $29 dollar one's like I was you'll think this is a huge improvement. It's cut out over 40 feet of curved lines ( some pretty tight) in 4/4 and 5/4 cherry and while I wish I had a band saw, well, sometimes you just have to adapt and overcome and use what you have.

I've had zero issues with the blade holder, the blower is nice, it's tough to see the line but honestly not any harder than normal, a light would be nice but I didn't want to pay for it. Compared to a cheap one it's solid, not nearly as loud, runs smoother, cuts faster, doesn't bog down and is a joy to use. It's been a good solid no frills jigsaw that's done everything I've asked of it and then some without the over $100 price tag.
Good Saw With Plenty of Power April 4 2014

Plenty of power for this DIY's needs. Good quality product which I expect from Bosch. The only complaint I have is that blade changing is a little cumbersome, and the blade doesn't always eject as the manual says it will (yes, I read the manual). For me these are minor issues and do not detract from the saw's performance. This is an excellent no frills saw which is exactly what I wanted.
