Bosch 12V Jig Saw Model JS120BN

As you know I am a huge fan of Bosch tools and believe they make one of the toughest tools around.  So when I heard Bosch was coming out with a new 12V Jig Saw, it was a tool I knew I needed to take a closer look at.  As you can see by the picture, this is a barrel style grip jig saw, which I tend to prefer.  Barrel grips just seem to have more control and are easier to maneuver around your work. Like most 12V batteries, the Bosch doesn’t have a fuel status gauge on the...

Friday Night Tools Fight – Cordless Jig Saws

OK, it’s not Friday night, but we recently did a Friday Night Tool fight between the Dewalt, Milwaukee and the Metabo cordless Jig Saws.  All of these Jig Saws are sold as bare tools or in a kit.  The model number on the Milwaukee is 2645-22, Metabo STA 18LT and the Dewalt is DCS331. We tested each Jig Saw with a 4 A/h battery.  We used Bosch Jig Saw wood blades to cut through a 2×4.  We wanted to see how many feet we could get off each fully charged battery.  Next we did a quick scrolling test to...
