Best Jigsaw on the Market
Bosch knows how to design jigsaws and this is no exception. Aside from the accurate cutting ability and simple blade change, this saw is just perfectly designed to fit the hand. This not only makes following a line easier but for me makes coping crown a much easier task. I cope crown (and base) holding the saw upside down and backwards (pointing at me) and this saw seems designed just for that operation. In this manner, the low and gripped head fits just right in my hand and allows me very free movement to trim every little detail perfect. On top of that, the weight is lower than most other jigsaws in it's class so a day of coping and scribing doesn't leave my arm feeling like limp rubber anymore. Good Job Bosch!

I use this on occasion for baseboards. I like that the base can be tilted and that it cuts quickly. It would have been nice if it came with a sampler of blades as that was the first thing I did.

Bosch Jigsaw Model JS470EB
As an amateur woodworker, I've been dabbling with projects for some 50 years or more. I've always had a Craftsman jigsaw that I used from time to time. And while it served the purpose, it was never anything like accurate. The blade wobbled about 3/8" or more.
I finally decided to buy myself one quality grade jigsaw. After much research - I found the quality of the Bosch jigsaw to be in the top two. The other brand that I was considering was more than 3 times the price! I've now used my new Bosch jigsaw on several projects, and just can't say enough about the precision of the cut, smoothness, and great blade change feature. I think if you're serious about quality you too will appreciate the product that Bosch has built.

I bought this to cut out some pieces to built some furniture. I use it in lieu of a band saw.  Because of the barrel design, the saw is easier to control during intricate cuts.  I was able to clamp two 3/4 " boards together and cut them together in order to ensure that the pieces were exactly alike.

Best jigsaw value
I have had the tool for about a month. As a Cabinetmaker, I feel that this is the best jigsaw that I could get for the price. It has exceeded my expectations. the blade release is really great, no more burned fingers grabbing a hot blade. Cutting is very precise even in thick hardwoods, although I primarily use this for rough scribing.

I have been using this saw for a year now for rough and fine cutting. It is smooth and accurate.

Best jig saw I have experienced to date. It cuts through metal and wood like butter! The blade deflection is minimal and the dust blower is an excellent feature to add to this tool. Love using it and cannot wait for the next opportunity.

Great Tool
Tool was a little heavier than I expected but works wonderfully. Great for on-site counter top and cabinetry modifications. Very solid tool for daily use.

Been using Bosch jigsaws for forty years, the quick release blade is a remarkable innovation and the base plate is significantly more stable and less likely to get knocked out of alignment. The thicker, more solid baseplate is also a marked improvement. I have been complaining for years that the cords were not long enough. Thank you for the eight-foot cord!

Does this come with a hard or soft case?
Taylor on Feb 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The JS470EB includes a hard plastic case
Js470. Any advantage of the D handle versus Barrel grip? The $25.00 price cut does not show at checkout, any suggestions?
chevy on Dec 5, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Biggest advantage is in keeping the tool's foot plate flat, and by having your hand closer to the blade/motor, you have better control and more tactile feedback.

Lack of handle also makes tool somewhat more nimble, and lack of big ole' handle could let you get the tool in tight spots where the "D" couldnt go!!

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
