Want to thank all over the past several years who have bragged on the Bosch jigsaw. Santa finally brought me one — barrel style. I have used it three times since Christmas.
There is NO comparison to the old jigsaws (I have three old ones to be thrown out now). Sure, it is heavy, no speed control on the trigger, and no laser light. However, the dust collection (with optional dust collector shroud) works great. Probably the best hand power tool dust collection of any of my tools. The blades are SHARP. Enough to be dangerous if you are used to the old blades I have been buying.
Again, thanks to all who suggested I get this one. Especially Sarge!
Happy New Year.
