Most Bosch jigsaws have a handle on the top of the main handle that you need to pull up and rotate counterclockwise to allow the screw to accept the blade. Insert the blade and rotate 90 degrees into position then tighten the handle and press back down into place. In the beginning it may seem like you are going to break the handle pulling it up but rest assured it will get easier as it gets used.

How to lock the jigsaw blade to make straight cuts on my Boschest 1587svs?


Use a straight edge guide. Clamp it on the work so the jigsaw can run against it. Be patient and go very slowly.

I have an old bosch 158IVS uh, what do you call a little reciprocating saw? jigsaw? anyways i can't for the life of me figure out how to change the blade. i've undone every screw. opened up the motor...


well the sawzaw will be drastically different from the jigsaw, but the jigsaw will have either a round twist lock that needs to be turned a little to remove the blade, or two screws that hold a flat plate that clamp the blade. and as for the sawzaw, it will be a twist lock, or a latch lock, the latch lock will look like a lever that needs lifted to remove the blade, and the twist lock is the same as the jigsaw.

My original blade broke so i bought a new blade from wickes 10tpi now when i use it i saw on the line i have marked but on the other side of the 2x2 it is about quarter to hallf inch out how can i make...


There are good blades and there are cheap blades. Good blades are straighter but less tolerant of poor technique and so tend to break, cheap blades can and do bend far more. You can keep the blade straighter by not forcing the blade through the work and allowing it to cut at it's own rate and by experimenting with the speed settings on the jigsaw. It also helps if you pick the correct blade for the job: 10tpi is a bit too coarse for ripping a timber batten along the grain but fine for rough cutting chipboard. Also, it's difficult to keep the foot of the jigsaw absolutely level on 2x2 which adds to your problems.

My bosch jigsaw keeps saing sideways!!!


could be the yoke inside that is loose, unplug the tool and lock the blade in and see if you can turn the blade by hand. also make sure that you are using the right shank blades and lastly is the locking mechanism fully engaging the blade. Let me know the model number if none of these help and I will look at an explosion for you.

Blade wonders on straight cut


When doing any straight cut use a straight edged piece of something to run the jig saw along, using as a guide, this will usually keep it all straight, sometimes it can be a loose blade, or a bent shaft?

Blade misalignment


The 1590, like several Bosch jigsaws, has a selector switch to choose the type of cutting action. You have to choose the appropriate cutting action, either straight or oscillating, to accommodate the material you cut and the blade you cut with. For instance, if using a very slender blade for clean curved cuts in wood, a slight oscillating motion ( setting II or III) reduces friction on the blade. 
If you choose the straight cutting action you get maximum accuracy, but drastically increase the friction because the blade is held firmly to the roller bearing.  A slender blade can handle that for brief periods, (say... less than thirty seconds) in soft, thin wood with a straight cut. In hard woods or engineered wood products ( plywood, MDF etc.) the thin blade will heat up and bend. 
You can reduce friction by choosing an oscillating cutting motion, or you can use a larger, sturdier blade. The "Aggressor" blades do not cut as smoothly as the "clean" blades, but they cut faster and are stronger. To cut thick wood ( 4x4 ) or a long cut in engineered material, that is the blade I use. Select number III or number II for 'type-of-cut' and use a bigger blade. See if that stops the "bucking."
Good luck!
