The first electric jigsaw was invented in 1946 when Albert Kaufmann, development engineer with Scintilla AG in Switzerland (part of the Bosch group), had the idea to add a saw blade to a sewing machine in order to cut curves in wood. The new Compact Generation of Bosch jigsaws are handier, lighter and more precise than their predecessors. Regardless of your DIY needs, you will find a jigsaw to suit you in the new Bosch Compact Generation range
Its unequalled versatility has made the jigsaw one of the most important power tools in the past 50 years. Capable of making straight or curved cuts, it is easy to operate and ergonomically designed. Regardless of the type of cut users need, the jigsaw handles and solves cutting problems like a true master.
The Bosch Universal PST 700 E features a greater cutting capacity (70mm in wood) ideal for projects such as:
The PST 700 E is also very capable cutting in aluminium material up to 10 mm and steel up to 4 mm thick. Other possible projects include cutting skirting, inlay floors, garden fences, racks, garden benches, dog houses or carports.
The PST 700 E is extremely handy and guarantees comfortable and precise straight and curve cuts. The tool features a powerful 500 watt motor and weighs only 1.7kg, which ensures fatigue-proof working over prolonged periods of time and under difficult working conditions. The PST 700 E offers optimal and controlled user comfort thanks to its compact size (-21% vs. predecessor) and small weight (-15% vs. competitors) for outstanding manageability and improved guiding.
The Bosch electronic speed control trigger allows slow (soft) starting of cuts and fingertip control to precisely match the saw blade stroke rate to the material. The Universal PST 700 E has a no-load stroke rate from 500 to 3000 strokes per minute.
The Bosch SDS blade change allows easy saw blade change without the need for screwdrivers or hex keys--simple.
Pendulum, or orbital, action on a Bosch jigsaw introduces a swinging motion to the blade stroke that improves chip ejection and speeds up cutting, especially in thicker materials. Using pendulum action also increases saw blade life.
The dust extraction capability is via the integrated dust spout at the rear of the machine. Simply connect a suitable vacuum cleaner (such as the Bosch PAS 11-21) for effective dust management and a cleaner working environment.
Ergonomic shape and superior technical features allow the Bosch jigsaws from the PST series to be operated with one hand if desired. Bosch jigsaws are designed in such a way that the user’s hand is positioned above the saw blade. This allows easy and comfortable guidance of the saw when cutting.
The Universal PST 700 E features an adjustable footplate (151 mm) which can angled to 45 degrees for bevel cuts.
The new Bosch jigsaws are equipped with ‘Low Vibration’, a counterbalance mechanism that neutralises the vibration generated by the motion of the saw blade, ensuring comfortable operation.
The Softgrip surfaces of the PST provide a better and more comfortable hold, and reduce the risk of the user losing their grip and therefore control of the machine.
The 4-position switch is found on the side of the machine.
Hints: Laminated materials: these can be cut cleanly from above using a down-cutting blade (T101BR turn off Pendulum position ‘0’) or by turning the material over so that the finished surface is facing downwards (using a standard blade with pendulum on if necessary).
A wide variety of jigsaw blades are available from the Bosch accessory program, for best cutting results the correct blade should be selected. Replace blades regularly whenever a drop in performance is noticed.

They are compact, lightweight and always sit securely in your hand. Whether you are an occasional DIYer, a proficient DIYer or an expert: Bosch jigsaws are always the right choice and are precisely tailored to fulfil your personal requirements.
It works but I hope it lasts longer than the last Bosch jigsaw. The cooling fan shattered and a replacement had to be sought.Published 6 days ago by Straggly Dan
