The Bosch Compact Generation of Jigsaw--On a Mission to Precision

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

Versatility

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.

Cut types:
  • Curve cut: One of the most extraordinary features of the jigsaw is its tight turning-circle. The tightest curves may be cut with a jigsaw due to its narrow blades and exceptional manoeuvrability.
  • Straight cut: Guide rails and parallel guides may be used to assist in straight cutting with the jigsaw.
  • Circular cut: Circular cuts may be achieved using a circle guide. Bosch jigsaw parallel guides feature a circle guide function.
  • Cut-out (plunge cutting): Plunge cutting is a method used to create openings in board or sheet materials without the need for pre-drilling.

The Bosch Universal PST 700 E features a greater cutting capacity (70mm in wood) ideal for projects such as:

  • Wooden floors, sawing panels/boards to size.
  • Creating user’s own decorations and toys (such as coat racks, rocking horses, picture frames, etc.).

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.

Bosch Electronic

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.

Tool-Free Saw Blade Change – Bosch SDS System

The Bosch SDS blade change allows easy saw blade change without the need for screwdrivers or hex keys--simple.

4-Stage Pendulum Action

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.

Dust Extraction Facility

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.

’Realistic’ One-Handed Operation

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.

Footplate

The Universal PST 700 E features an adjustable footplate (151 mm) which can angled to 45 degrees for bevel cuts.

Low Vibration

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.

Softgrip

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.

Tips for Using Bosch Jigsaws

Using Pendulum (Orbital) Action

The 4-position switch is found on the side of the machine.

  • Use this position for clean cuts in wood, but cutting speed will be quite slow.
  • In wood cutting speed will increase but the cut will be not quite as clean and some break-out may appear on the top surface. This position may be used in steel up to 3mm thick. Slightly faster cutting and better blade life will result.
  • Faster cutting in wood, with even more break out. This position should not be used for metal cutting.
  • Fastest cut possible, good for thick wood (greater than 40 mm), do not expect a clean cut.

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).

Speed Selection
  • When cutting metal, cutting speed should be reduced and blade life may be increased by the use of a metal cutting lubricant.
  • When cutting plastics, reduced speed should also be used, this prevents the material from melting.
Blades

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.

Control
  • Make sure the base plate of the jigsaw remains flat on the material surface at all times when cutting to avoid excessive vibration.
  • Do not turn the saw in the cut without forward motion when cutting curves to avoid excessive vibration and blade breakage.
  • Wait until the saw has stopped completely before lifting the jigsaw from the cut to avoid damaging the material.

    I bought one of these ten years ago. To be honest, I haven't looked after it all that well, certainly not in the type of jobs I apply it do. Whenever I'm too lazy to use a saw, the jigsaw comes out. It doesn't matter if it's not for fine work, I'll even use it for firewood. I can't begin to imagine how many hours of service it has done in the past ten years, but on it goes. It squeeks a little now, and I've got through a lot of blades, but it keeps on going. That's Bosch quality for you. "Buy cheap, and you buy dear" they say. That applies especially to tools. Always buy quality, and this is a quality tool.

    Usual Bosch quality and it may be slightly more costly than some other brands, but this is easily made up for in this quality.. I bought this after my B&D jigsaw burnt out and have used this regularly for the last 4 weeks and found that the only issue I have is that it could be a little more powerful. However I could have bought its bigger brother!

    It comes with a general blade, which is a little soft, but works well and it is easy to pack away after use in its box. It also has good connection to vacuum clear or extractor. All round good buy!

    This is a nice tool and cuts veneered chipboard well with the speed wood saw (I am working on my kitchen units). However one major drawback is the saw does not come with a parallel cutting guide as standard. You have to buy this separately. When you have obtained the cutting guide – the case is so compact that it will not go in the case. Without the parallel cutting guide attached, I could not cut a straight line over any length to save my life! This is why I can only award 4 stars. My last jig-saw Black & Decker included a cutting guide.

    So far this appears to do exactly what I expected it to do. I am a capable DIYer and I find Bosch tools continually meet my expectations.

    It cuts as well as the blades it is used with. The front blowing mechanism is really useful while using a vacuum attachment at the back is also helpful. It has preset bevel cutting angle for 45 and 22.5 degrees but I don't know how accurate it is. The handle is comfortable to hold and trigger easy to control the speed. Cord isn't too long, just adequate for home use but easily solved with a socket extension. The SDS changing mechanism, while really easy to change blades, it doesn't have any clear indicator when the blade sits correctly. Bosch perhaps could have added a simple marker on bug red nob. I have to point out the SDS release nob does occasionally get stuck quite firmly. It would take two fingers from both of my hands to release the blade. This brings my biggest complain - the lack of a safety catch! You only safety is to unplug! You could switch off at the socket too but since the cord isn't too long, I often use an extension socket meaning it isn't too convenient to keep unplugging it to take out the blade and re-jig for the next cut. Overall, quite pleased for this low cost jigsaw.

    Delivered in good time and well packed. Previously I had been using a jigsaw attachment to my drill then I mislaid a vital part (the small coupling cam for the drill) so I had to replace the attachment. I decided on a dedicated jigsaw. The Bosch is far superior to my old jigsaw - much lighter so is easier to control, cuts much faster, blade changing is much easier (no allen key required) and it can use the blades from my old jigsaw - it can use both types of blade U and T shanks contrary to what I have read elsewhere - it is printed on the box. My old jigsaw was never able to make a vertical cut - the blade always seemed to wander off the vertical esp. when cutting thick material e.g. kitchen worktops. The is ALMOST non-existent with the Bosch but only happened when cutting 30mm chipboard and to a negligable amount - this is why I gave it 4 stars. I am very happy with this product and recommend it.
