Mount Prospect, Ill., December 20, 2007 - Lightweight and powerful, the new JS5 Orbital Jigsaw from Bosch Power Tools and Accessories is the ideal option for woodworkers, remodelers, serious DIYers and others who are ready to move up to a pro-caliber jigsaw.

Long known for industry-leading innovation and performance in the jigsaw category, Bosch's latest offering delivers both without breaking the bank. For example, Bosch's exclusive One Touch(TM) blade change system enables one-handed blade changes. This feature provides quick and easy blade changes during any project.

The variable speed dial allows users to precisely control the saw's 5.7 amps of power and match speed of cut (500-3,100 SPM) for a smooth and quality finish on their workpiece.

The Bosch JS5 offers top-notch comfort and control, thanks to a counterbalanced drive system that minimizes vibration and a soft-grip handle and body that reduce user fatigue. Visibility is maximized by an adjustable dust blower, designed to keep sight lines clear during use. The lightweight JS5 barely tips the scales at five pounds.

The Bosch JS5 Orbital Jigsaw comes complete with a rugged carrying bag, blade, anti-splinter insert and an Allen wrench. The saw is covered by a one year warranty.
