Power and Precision for Accurate Cutting
Powered by a 6.4-amp motor and providing 500-2,800 spm, the Bosch Top Handle Jigsaw gets the job done fast. It features a 1-inch stroke length for 3/8-inch capacity in mild steel, 1-1/4-inch capacity in plastics, and 1-4/5-inch capacity in stainless steel. For optimum control, this saw comes equipped with the Precision Control System, which ensures better accuracy with virtually no blade wander.

Secure Blade Clamp and One-Touch Blade Changes
With the Bosch jigsaw, blade changes are no problem--one touch does it all. One-handed insertion and lever ejection make for fast and easy blade changes. And you'll never need to touch a hot blade.

A multidirectional T-shank blade clamp mechanism provides superior grip of T-shank blades, eliminating play and preventing pullout and breakage. The jigsaw does not accept U-shank blades.

Versatile Design Handles Different Materials and Jobs
Its four-position orbital action adjusts the blade to match the cutting job, letting you move from smooth to aggressive cuts. For supreme convenience, its tool-less, die-cast aluminum footplate with tension adjustment makes for fast and easy bevel cutting.

A low-vibration design ensures smooth operation, while the variable speed lets you choose the proper setting by using a dial to set maximum speed, or via the convenient accelerator trigger. To help maintain steady speed, Constant Response circuitry provides consistent performance under load.

Dust Blower and Comfort Features
The jigsaw is exceptionally user friendly. An ambidextrous button is accessible from either side of the ergonomic top handle, which features soft-grip areas for a solid, comfortable hold. A dust blower with on/off switch keeps your view of the cut-line dust-free, while a non-marring plastic footplate overshoe protects delicate surfaces.

L-BOXX 2 for Organization and Portability
This kit features the new Bosch L-BOXX system carrying case complete with one-click stacking ability. It also includes top, front, and side handles, lockable capability for theft prevention, and a shockproof, durable design.

Warranty Information
The Bosch 120-Volt Top Handle Jigsaw is backed by a manufacturer's one-year limited warranty.

What's in the Box
Jigsaw, three blades, insert, footplate overshoe, dust collection kit, and carrying case.

Swiss-made quality tool. Smooth, powerful, variable speed, little-to-no blade wander for accurate cuts. What more could you want? An LED, maybe? OK, there is no LED, and the blower is a bit weak on lower speeds, but that is about it. The two best jigsaws made are the Bosch 1590 and the Festool Trion. The 1590 is about a hundred clams cheaper than the Festool, so the choice is not that difficult to make. The rumor is that Bosch has been planning to replace the 1590 with something made in China for a couple of years now. The 1590 no longer appears on the Bosch Tools website - so get one while you still can. Unless you want an LED light so you can work in the dark, that is.

Heavy, rugged, powerful - LOVE IT ! It goes into hardwood like butter, but still can make precise cuts with appropriate blades. Plus, the trigger is so smooth and precise !

What a beast! I've now had this for a couple of years. Super duty, super strong, used with the thick blade and the anti sway guide, you can get very good results!

5.0 out of 5 stars Blade stability features actually work... Aug. 7 2011
By Victor H. Agresti - Published on
Bosch 1590EVSL 120-Volt Top Handle Jigsaw Kit

The recently introduced Bosch1590EVSLsupersedes the similar Bosch1590EVSK, which came out in 2004.

All professional grade jigsaws have a slotted roller guide (above the footplate) that the blade rides in, to stabilize the blade. This Bosch saw also has user-activated blade rubbing blocks below the roller guide, even closer to the workpiece. The blocks are featured on Bosch 1590 & 1591 jigsaws, and perform the same function as bandsaw blocks -- keeping the blade straight while cutting. See the Customer Image of the roller & blocks, then look closely at the best Milwaukee, Makita, or DeWalt jigsaws - and observe that they only have a blade roller guide.

At a recent Woodworking show, I asked the Bosch representative why their JS series jigsaws lacked the rubbing blocks. He said they wanted to keep the cost down on the JS models, so the blocks are only included on their two best saws (the 1590 & 1591).

This blade stability system makes for squarer cuts than my 8-year-old Bosch model 1587 jigsaw, which has the blade roller guide only. No jigsaw has zero blade deflection since the blade isn't supported from the "bottom" (as on a scroll saw). In fact, even on a saw this good, the blade can be made to slant to one side, IF the saw is pushed to one side while cutting.

If you've never used a jigsaw with a quick-change blade system, you'll absolutely love it. A "T" blade can be popped out in a second or two without touching it, and it only takes a few seconds to install a new one. This saw only weighs 6 lbs, has minimal vibration, a dust-blower with an off/on switch, and a clever new tool box. The non-marring plastic footplate works fine. I really like that the footplate is the tool-less type, rather than needing an allen wrench to adjust it, as some saws require. The handle is comfortable, the switch has no places that pinch your fingers, and it feels like a professional tool in your hands. The speed control knob at the back of the motor sets the maximum speed; the trigger varies the speed from 0 to that maximum setting. The electronic feedback circuitry maintains full power even at the lower speeds. It's made in Switzerland.

If you've only used Harry Homeowner model jigsaws such as Ryobi, Skil, Black & Decker, or even the cheaper models of the professional brands, this saw will be a revelation.

At 6.4 amps, there is no more powerful jigsaw on the market and none that has the blade stability features of this one. Other than Festool models, this might be the most costly jigsaw; but of course, top-of-the-line tools are expensive. If you prefer the barrel-gripped style, check out the Bosch 1591EVSL.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cuts like BUTTA! May 17 2011
By Jon The Great - Published on

I've been wanting a good jigsaw, so I finally bit the bullet to help put in an engineered wood floor. I also bought Bosch's laminate floor blade kit, and this thing cuts like butter. I originally planned to just use this for the notches and a few curves, but it cuts so well that I used it for all the cuts. I was using a portable table saw for ripping the flooring and a miter saw for the cross cuts. This thing cuts extremely straight, and is easy to control. It's also light weight, and I don't have to take time to setup the fence on the table saw. I haven't used it for any other projects, but so far I am extremely happy. Oh yeah, I almost forgot that the saw is Swiss made as opposed to Chinese like a lot of tools these days. It seems to be well built, and a good tool that will last a long time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another awesome Bosch power tool. Sept. 13 2011

In the past I had been borrowing my brother's el-Cheapo made-in-China jigsaw when I needed one for a small job. Frustrated at how imprecise and wandering the thing was, and how terrible it made my work look, I borrowed a friend's older Bosch. WOW - what a difference! Next thing ya know, I bought this one, and it's several steps above and beyond the one I borrowed even. So much fun to make accurate smooth cuts and not worry about the saw veering to and fro across lines - and the blades cut so well I am blown away. Great product, great case, great build quality.

4.0 out of 5 stars Jigs Saws are not all created equal Dec 26 2011
By mgyoung - Published on

I recently purchased the Bosch 1590EVSL Jig Saw Kit. I spent about 6 hours with it in my shop today cutting both wood and hard surface materials. It has exceptional power. This jig saw replaced another Bosch jig saw which just went belly up after 8 years of heavy use. I am a woodworker. The button on the front of the jig saw allows you to tighten the blade almost eliminating blade flex entirely. This is especially good for doing detail work in that it allows you to truly follow your layout lines, thus reducing sanding time. In additon loading blades is truly a one handed operation and the blade ejection works great when either changing blades or having to remove a blade that has broken. Though the blower function does not work as well as on past Bosch models, the dust extraction is very effective and fits any standard shop vac hose. Given Bosch invented the Jig Saw, it appears through thoughtfull engineering and innovation, they have managed to stay at the front of the pack even after more than 50 years. The only draw back besides the less than impressive blower is the wired safety guard that sits in front of the jig saw which blocks the view of the blade's track forcing one to have to get a little too close to the blade in order to keep the cutter true to a line. Otherwise, I feel I got my monies worth and I don't think anyone will be disappointed with this selection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best jigsaw - period. Sept. 22 2011
By Art - Published on

This is my second Bosch 1590 jigsaw. I'm still using my first one and have been for 5 years with zero trouble. It is so easy to change blades, is very accurate, and has so much power that I use it more than any other cutting tool in my shop. I needed a second saw for an out of state project so naturally, this was my first choice. It came with a newer case, which is pretty nice, but not any better than the case I got 5 years ago. The black insert is made of flimsy plastic, which I doubt will last very long - but the case is rather peripheral and will still be useful without the form-fitting insert. Although on the expensive side, the saw is awesome and I'm glad I now have two of them!
