Bosch JS470E Jigsaw, Bosch Tools, $133

Bosch has long had a reputation for making great jigsaws and they’ve continued this tradition. I’ve used mine for everything from fine work on MDF and 1/4″ plywood, up to cutting a hole through a 4″ thick log when I was working on my homemade cat trees. This tool is both ergonomic, and has intuitive design features that will lessen the amount of button-fiddling you’ll do while working. It also has four different setting for reciprocating motion so you’ll get the best cut depending on the material you’re working with.
