    Nice job Andrew, you’re review was very informative, and helped me make my decision!

  2. Paul C on February 7, 2022 at 10:26 pm

    Festool. Best ones made but very expensive.

    Makita 4351ce is slso worth considering. Comes in an identical box to the Festool and can be bought cheaper than the bosch and is probably better made too.

    Which one you think has the edge over the other?
    Which one would you go for?

  4. sultan Merchant on February 7, 2022 at 10:29 pm

    Very expensive and no provision of led light

  5. Mark Rider on February 7, 2022 at 10:30 pm

    This is great, then mind was blown when I saw the video clip of your surfboard making. very cool.

    i like to think every time he does a blade switch he just launches them across the room. Great review Andrew.

    This is the one I use,its low center of balance and better hand placement is second to none!

  8. MB B on February 7, 2022 at 10:34 pm

    BOSCH GST 135 CE is even better.

  9. jt on February 7, 2022 at 10:36 pm

    Well presented. I ordered mine about ten minutes ago. Based on this review

  10. 962pepo on February 7, 2022 at 10:38 pm

    I already order my. Thanks for the review..

    I just used mine for the very first time. I ordered blades on AMAZON and after a couple of test runs… I was able to trim the bottom of my refrigerator cabinet to accommodate at taller new refrigerator. This thing cuts like butter ! I suffer from neuropathy, and using power tools can be problematic for me. This jigsaw had very little vibration and did not bother me at all ! My only negative is, it is VERY heavy when using it sideways, and takes some effort to keep a straight cut. Thanks for the recommendation and review. I am very happy with my purchase.

    First of all Bosch jigsaws is by far not the best I know this personaly

  13. Big Mike is talking on February 7, 2022 at 10:41 pm

    Thank God you didn’t show it in use. We wouldn’t want to see that at all!

  14. Shizuka Sama on February 7, 2022 at 10:41 pm

    *I use this saw regularly and if you actually read the instructions, this saw is fool proof. It makes absolutely straight cuts>>> **** set the orbital control on "1" for most cuts. Perfection! Regarding blade retention, I’ve noticed that you need to make sure the blade is fully seated in the chuck. It will work with the bade not fully seated, but you run the risk of the blade falling out. Also, the base adjustment does in fact have a detent for 0 degrees. You pull/push the base plate to engage the 0 degree detent. Overall, great saw!*

    Great review, I just ordered mine 😄

  16. Lowegy on February 7, 2022 at 10:47 pm

    Thanks for the review. I’m in the market for a new one and will be considering this one. Thanks again

  17. Hieu Pham on February 7, 2022 at 10:49 pm

    Does it get hot? I just did like 3 cuts and the hump gets pretty hot

  18. Omar Flores on February 7, 2022 at 10:50 pm

    After watching your video i went and bought it. Everything you say is accurate. It works phenomenal. I went from a walmart jig saw to this so just imagen!!! Hahah.. The one thing i did not like about it is that i have small fat hands. The barrel can be a bit uncomfortable for me. A little hard to grab. Im still considering changing it for the one with the handle. We’ll see.

  19. FARAFADDIA ABU HANIPAH on February 7, 2022 at 10:50 pm

    All tools today must have LED light ..this dont have? Makita has LED on all their latest jigsaw because of the shadow cast from the saw causes dark spots at the cutting blade

  20. Dylan Boxler on February 7, 2022 at 10:50 pm

    Great review. Do more.

  21. Phil Niddrie on February 7, 2022 at 10:50 pm

    Hey Andrew…I greatly enjoyed and greatly appreciate your’ve sold me for sure! I have been a professional carpenter, woodworker, renovator, you name it, for the last 50 years…but I am always open to finding out about new tools..I just trashed my Dewalt today…it totally sucked and I have been using it for years..finally it wouldn’t hold the blade any longer. So I thought I’d see what was out there and found your review of this Bosch..had thought about getting the one which sells for about 70 bucks, but I know this is a better one and won’t disappoint. Thanks..

  22. selvin sagastume on February 7, 2022 at 10:51 pm

    nice i used this tool on 2004 the best

  23. Alex Oryol on February 7, 2022 at 10:53 pm

    Thanks for making this review. Helped me with my decision.

  24. lionCDM on February 7, 2022 at 10:54 pm

    Can you cut metal with it?

  25. Marc Gigliello on February 7, 2022 at 10:55 pm

    Nice job on the video. I liked your honesty. Festool, by the way is the professional brand. I will be purchasing this jig saw.
    Stay Safe.

  26. Chris Cardona on February 7, 2022 at 10:55 pm

    Does this work with Collins coping foot?

  27. Ty N on February 7, 2022 at 10:56 pm

    No, not Festool (although Festool is pricy). You’re thinking the even more expensive Mafell P1cc, which has the same barrel grip design, but accepts a twice as thick blade. Funny thing is that I’m pretty sure most of the Bosch/Mafell accessories for this saw are interchangeable: parallel guide, circle cutting guide, track saw attachment.

  28. Priya Mathew on February 7, 2022 at 10:57 pm

    How much for this

  29. David Kasman on February 7, 2022 at 10:57 pm

    Very helpful. Thanks!

  30. Mr. Teff on February 7, 2022 at 10:59 pm

    Very helpful review. I’m sold.

  31. TragestyX on February 7, 2022 at 11:14 pm

    This was first released 10 y ears ago, almost 11 in 2010. Is it even worth it now compared to updated tools.

  32. Ron Weber on February 7, 2022 at 11:15 pm

    Great review

  33. R R on February 7, 2022 at 11:15 pm

    Dude, excellent review, seriously, you got straight to the point and discussed every feature in-depth without dragging on. Keep up the amazing work!
