Bosch 1587 VS

Technical Details Powerful 5 amp motor, 500-3100 SPM Tool-free blade change system - For fast and easy blade changes Exclusive multi-directional blade clamp mechanism - For superior blade hold Low-vibration design - Ensures extremely smooth operation 4-Stage orbital action adjusts blade motion - To match work-piece and cutting task From the Manufacturer Bosch invented the jig saw, and, with their Progressor top-handle model, they're getting close to perfecting it. The Progressor has a nicely shaped handle, tapered where other saws are not, and a nice rubber grip that lets users (of all hand sizes) steer the tool firmly in hand. (Some toolmakers ignore ergonomics, but not Bosch--and we appreciate it.) The safety mechanism works well with the trigger, and the cut is super smooth. We like the variable-speed dial, the light weight, and the foot plate's plastic cover, which ensures that surfaces won't get scratched as they can by saws with metal plates. Product Description 4position orbital jigsaw. Electronic speed control, preselect stroke rate to suit material. 4-position orbital action, controlled cutting motion. Tool free blade change system. 3-position chip blower for clear line cutting. Can be shut-off when cutting
