Hello All,

My Bosch is jigsaw is dying (blade changing knob stripped and blades coming out while cutting).

Seems like the Makita 4350 is a good replacement for the price? Does anyone have this saw?

What is my best bet in the $150-$200 range?

Thanks,

Tom


PS. Anyway of getting a Bosch 1590 in the market place?

Hi Tom - not really much into jigsaws but the feedback I keep hearing is that, other than Festool, Bosch is the gold standard in the things. I have been shopping around some looking to upgrade my old Skil and I think 1590's seem to have been discontinued. I find them once in awhile on the reconditioned market.
Here's a pretty decent place to start looking, I've bought quite a few tools from CPO

Thanks MDnrdr!

I loved my old Bosch 1587, and would like the 1590 but can't find it new or reconditioned.

Which Bosch do you have?

Tom
