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

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.
