Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not the same as my old one but almost as good [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I OWNED A BOSCH BARREL GRIP JIG SAW FOR I GUESS 10 YEARS ,COULD BE LONGER, AND WAS THE BEST DARN JIG SAW I EVEF USED. IT HAD A NICE ROUND BODY WITH A ROTATING KNOB ON TOP AT THE BUISNESS END ,VARIABLE SPEED AND WHEN IT WAS STOLEN ABOUT 6 MONTHS AGO I WAS SEVERLY DEPRESSED BUT WENT RIGHT OUT TO BUY ANOTHER. UNFORTUNATELY, THEY CHANGED THE DESIGN TO THIS CURRENT ONE AND IT IS NO WHERE AS NICE TO USE AS MY PREVIOUS ONE. THAT SAID NO ONE ELSE MAKES ANYTHING LIKE THE OLD ONE EITHER SO ALWAYS BEING HAPPY WITH MY BOSCH TOOLS I PURCHASED THE NEW MODEL. ITS GOOD ,NO ISSUES AT ALL BUT I MISS THE OLD STYLE AND HATE IT WHEN A GOOD DESIGN IS CHANGED FOR THE SAKE OF CHANGE...ITS ALMOST NEVER WORTH IT.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from JS470EB Barrel-Grp Jig Saw - Great Jig Saw [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought JS470EB Barrel-Grp Jig Saw over a year ago because is more ergonomic than traditional jig saws. I used since then in few projects and it is definitely the best jig saw I ever had.

what is the difference between the 1591evsl and the js470eb other than amperage and the red button (what is the red button for?)

Asked by: Jeff
The red button on the 1591evsl, turns the blower on - off. It clears dust off your line. The js470EB does not have this blower

Does the base have detents (stops) at commonly used angles?

Does the base have detents (stops) at commonly used angles? Or is it completely free swinging? Is there a guage for setting angles?
Asked by: David
No. When the screw is loosened from under the machine, the baseplate slides front to back to engage a 90 degree notch. It stops either way at 45. The scale is small with mediocre accuracy.

variable speed

why is it a dial operated variable speed and not a trigger mounted one. i have a bosch barrel grip jig saw at my Pennsylvania home and have wanted to know, what the benefit of the dial variable speed is. Is there a benefit of one over the other.
Asked by: Valerio
this has a wheel that you can set the speed you want. it doesnt have a trigger that you can change the speed. you have to turn the wheel
