The Bosch JS120 12V Max Barrel-Grip Jig Saw provides fast cutting and long runtime, making it ideal for cutting out unique shapes in multiple materials. An outstanding tool for finish carpenters, cabinet makers or kitchen installers, this compact jig saw has a compact size – just 9.4 In. long and only 3.0 Lbs. (tool only, not including battery). It provides a three-stage orbital action to match cutting execution with application, powering up to 2,800 strokes per minute, and it has a counterbalanced low-vibration plunge mechanism. It has a 45° bevel angle range. This light jig saw can cut through wood and aluminum; it delivers a 2.5 In. maximum capacity in wood. It has single-handed blade change with a tool-free T-Shank blade design (does not accept U-shank blades). It also has an integrated LED light.
Compact, ergonomic barrel-grip body – features upfront soft grip area for control and comfort

Variable-speed dial – allows matching speed to task, with no-load speed of 1,500-2,800 spm

Small grip diameter – reduces user fatigue during extended use applications

Multi-directional blade clamp – provides superior grip of T-shank blades (does not accept U-shank blades)

Counterbalanced low-vibration plunge mechanism – ensures extremely smooth operation

Tool-free blade change – allows one-hand insertion and ejection, eliminating the need to touch a hot blade

Switchable LED lighting – for enhanced visibility of cutting area

Three orbital-action settings – provide different blade strokes for smooth to aggressive cuts

Die-cast aluminum footplate – has no-mar plastic overshoe for enhanced glide properties and protection of fine workpiece surface

I got it thanks OP, to go with my 12v drill and driver. As reviews suggest sliding switch power, speed knob on rear, no toolless adjustment for the angle, and no memory for led light and only functional with unit running are the main downsides to deal with. Pretty nice overall aside from that.

This is definitely one of my most used 12v. It'd be nice if they redesigned them with the Bluetooth module so we could optimize it. So far, Bosch has been the only Bluetooth tool I like.

And no matter what other 12v I try, I always come back to the Bosch. They just feel better.

(With that said, I'm pretty passed at Bosch right now fir the decisions they're making with their new tool lineups. So it's tough to offer them any level of praise.)

Really cant go wrong with Bosch. I picked up impact and drill 12v brushed set from Warehouse for $66 with battery and charger and couldn't be happier with them, they are really beautiful machines. Too bad Bosch has so few 12v tools....kind of annoying. Didn't realize they had BT in their tools...that's interesting...sounds very futuristic...modify settings and get usage stats via app....pretty Next Level stuff.

Bosch has the potential to be on top of the tool industry.

Sadly, the people at the top of their NA (North American) market always seem to make bad calls.

Bosch has the best innovation but never puts it to its best use.

I had seen a change in Bosch these past few years, but it is as if someone said up high said "Whoa... slow it down people. I git a golf game today, and you're just adding more work to the pile.

So, it seems Bosch keeps making cool stuff, that they don't promote, and other tool companies copy it and make a fortune.

Bosch had 19 new tools they were going to bring to market this year (only one 12v I'm aware of) but now it seems they're not releasing half of them. And there's no reason why. They have been hardcore tested, and it's like they just decided they don't want the extra work. Lol.
