Bosch jigsaw blades

I just bought a Bosch 1591EVSK jigsaw and was wondering what the best deal on blades are. Anyone have any favorites other than Bosch blades, or do the Bosch blades work the best on Bosch jigsaws ?

Chuck: Bosch jigsaw blades are the best out there. They fit alot of other brands also. For what it is worth I only use Bosch, wouldnt touch another brand.
Also I think i sent ya an email but dont know if it went thru about the Penn State copy of your hood. :}:} I got one in my shop right now, helping another guy out by getting his saw ready to hookup to a DC.
There is NO comparison to your handmade on LOL LOL but we both knew that. At least you put rivets in every hole drilled LOL LOL, Penn's on the 4" extension were drilled for 3 and they only put in one :}

I agree, there are no better blades than Bosch.
Especially the Progressor blades ....they can't be beat.

Woodchuck, I have the european designed bosch jigsaw (1584AVS) because I do not like the western top handle design; I got it from Amazon I think. I do know that's where I found the best deal on blades later on. I bought a couple hundred assorted from an amazon.com reseller. He was selling them triple cheap. I agree with the other posters, I have tried them all I think, and the bosch blades are noticeably better than anything else I have tried. Check with amazon.com

Tex, the 1591EVSK that I bought is a barrel grip, no top handle. In Amazon.com the customers rate it very highly.

Yes I am aware. Yours is the latest model. Barrel-grippers unite!

Bosch barrel-gripper here too. I have a brand new DeWalt top handle that sits in the case under my bench. Yep, those Bosch blades are crazy sharp and can be a little pricey. I need to find some in bulk too. I'd like to be able to set up a small blower tip on mine that could run off the compressor, that's my only gripe about reciprocating saws, is that the dust always ends up on your line.

I am so accustomed to blowing it out of the way as I cut I don't even think about it. No wisecracks fellas.

It does seem like you could harness all that exhaust from the cooling fan and channel it to the blade. Suprised Bosch has not done that.

Ok, last time I tried that, it was a long winding cut and I started hyperventilating resulting in an even sloppier cut.

At least you didn't say your Jedi mind skills just guide you through the dust.

I understand from and article I read recently, Bosch has developed a new blade that is suppose to cut super smooth. Requires little or no sanding. Is there anyone out there that could provide more information on that blade?

The new blade is the T308B. Popular Woodworking's blog has an entry and video on the blades.

If you guys would buy quality tools like the 6268-21
you would not have that problem. It blows the dust away from the cut line is noooo problem!



Sometimes I use it to blow leaves in the fall!
Well... that might be just a slight exaggeration!

The Bosch jigsaw blades rock!! They are without a doubt superior blades. Worth the small extra $$.

Actually the Bosch 1591EVSK that I bought does have a adjustable blower, and is made in Switzerland.

I bought this set of blades a couple years ago w/my 1590EVSK.

http://www.amazon.com/Bosch-T5002-10...9961041&sr=8-3

They've breezed through wood everytime I used them.

Just recently used it for cutting metal. I used the T118A blade to shorten a aluminum frame for my neighbor this past weekend, cut it quite quickly and cleanly.

The Bosch jig (barrell grip) also blowes the saw dust out of the way! Rick

Lowe's is carrying the Extra Clean for Wood blades and they'll be hitting woodworking shops soon.

The guys at Popular Woodworking got marketing samples before the blade was released to retail.
