What Should I Buy?

I'm new here and "Hi" to you all. I want to buy a good orbital jigsaw. Below are two I have looked at. What do you think or should I look at something else.
I'm retired USAF [SAC] and quality and trouble free products mean a lot to me.

Milwaukee Electric Orbital Jig Saw ó 6.5 Amp, 300 SPM, Model# 6268-21 or Bosch 1590EVSK-6.4 Amp Top Handle. Both cost about $150.00.

Welcome Sloopy. Milwaukee has some great tools, but when it comes to jigsaws you really can't go wrong with the Bosch.

Bosch gets my vote

This may depend on the service and dealer you purchase from , however. All other things equal, I love my Bosch. bill

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

Bosch definitely!!!

My Bosch was my 3rd try to get a good jigsaw and it is most certainly the best. Wouldn't think of replacing it.

Do like you always do,,,, get what you always get!!

Welcome aboard Nelson,

If those are the choices I would go with the Bosch. I have a Dewalt and Love it but Bosch is just as good or maybe better.

I just joined myself and haven't done too much woodworking, so take this with a grain of salt. However, I have had a Bosch for several years and I think it's a great tool.
