Thanks, guys. @ Jason> Thanks for the suggestion, but I only go to Harbor Freight when I need a tool cheap and not concerned about quality. Oldog, I cracked up when I saw your reply. Even though we've never met, I could just hear you saying that. Thanks for the laugh! Wuzzat, thank you for the advice. As a DIY-er, not a contractor, I hope for this to be the last jigsaw I ever have to buy. Anyway, I followed several links for the Bosch and they all say discontinued. (Go figure ... they discontinue a jigsaw that both Popular Mechanics and Consumer Reports rate as the #1 jigsaw!). So, what are the top 3 or 4 power tool manufacturers that you recommend? Personal experience? Thanks again!
