We don’t usually use the Tool Test column as a compare-and-contrast opportunity, but when looking at the newest jigsaw from DeWalt, we had to. Bosch has been a recognized leader in the jigsaw category for years, so we put the DW331K up against the Bosch 1590EVS. The result: DeWalt is a strong competitor in the jigsaw category.

Both saws’ specifications are nearly identical: variable speed, four-position orbital action, blower, toolless shoe adjustment, toolless blade change and dust collection available. Even the prices are within $10 of each other.
