As the originally developer of the first jigsaw, Bosch has since reinvented it over & over again. The Bosch JS470E Top-Handle Jig Saw provides unsurpassed cut precision. Finish carpenters & kitchen & bath installers will appreciate the best-in-class 7.0-amp motor & variable-speed control, making this saw an excellent choice for curve-cutting. It delivers 500 up to 3,100 strokes per minute – with a stroke length of 1". A dial on the back of the tool controls the maximum speed & the accelerator trigger controls the operating speed. Built with an aluminum gearbox & an insulated cover, this jig saw comes with a low-vibration plunging design & Constant Response circuitry for consistent speed under load. It has a large die-cast aluminum footplate. The JS470E's multidirectional blade clamp delivers superior grip of T-shank blades (but it does not accept U-shank blades). The blade-ejection lever that eliminates need to touch hot blades. It has a dust blower for max cut-line visibility.
