Safety Notes
General Power Tool Safety Warnings
Read all safety warnings and all
instructions. Failure to follow
the warnings and instructions may result in elec-
tric shock, fire and/or serious injury.
Save all warnings and instructions for future
reference.
The term “power tool” in the warnings refers to
your mains-operated (corded) power tool or
battery-operated (cordless) power tool.
1) Work area safety
a) Keep work area clean and well lit. Clut-
tered or dark areas invite accidents.
b) Do not operate power tools in explosive
atmospheres, such as in the presence of
flammable liquids, gases or dust. Power
tools create sparks which may ignite the
dust or fumes.
c) Keep children and bystanders away
while operating a power tool. Distrac-
tions can cause you to lose control.
2) Electrical safety
a) Power tool plugs must match the outlet.
Never modify the plug in any way. Do not
use any adapter plugs with earthed
(grounded) power tools. Unmodified
plugs and matching outlets will reduce
risk of electric shock.
b) Avoid body contact with earthed or
grounded surfaces, such as pipes, radia-
tors, ranges and refrigerators. There is
an increased risk of electric shock if your
body is earthed or grounded.
c) Do not expose power tools to rain or wet
conditions. Water entering a power tool
will increase the risk of electric shock.
d) Do not abuse the cord. Never use the
cord for carrying, pulling or unplugging
the power tool. Keep cord away from
heat, oil, sharp edges and moving parts.
Damaged or entangled cords increase the
risk of electric shock.
e) When operating a power tool outdoors,
use an extension cord suitable for out-
door use. Use of a cord suitable for out-
door use reduces the risk of electric
shock.
f) If operating a power tool in a damp loca-
tion is unavoidable, use a residual cur-
rent device (RCD) protected supply. Use
of an RCD reduces the risk of electric
shock.
3) Personal safety
a) Stay alert, watch what you are doing and
use common sense when operating a
power tool. Do not use a power tool
while you are tired or under the influ-
ence of drugs, alcohol or medication. A
moment of inattention while operating
power tools may result in serious person-
al injury.
b) Use personal protective equipment. Al-
ways wear eye protection. Protective
equipment such as dust mask, non-skid
safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing protec-
tion used for appropriate conditions will
reduce personal injuries.
c) Prevent unintentional starting. Ensure
the switch is in the off-position before
connecting to power source and/or bat-
tery pack, picking up or carrying the
tool. Carrying power tools with your fin-
ger on the switch or energising power
tools that have the switch on invites acci-
dents.
d) Remove any adjusting key or wrench be-
fore turning the power tool on. A wrench
or a key left attached to a rotating part of
the power tool may result in personal inju-
ry.
e) Do not overreach. Keep proper footing
and balance at all times. This enables
better control of the power tool in unex-
pected situations.
f) Dress properly. Do not wear loose cloth-
ing or jewellery. Keep your hair, clothing
and gloves away from moving parts.
Loose clothes, jewellery or long hair can
be caught in moving parts.

g) If devices are provided for the connec-
tion of dust extraction and collection fa-
cilities, ensure these are connected and
properly used. Use of dust collection can
reduce dust-related hazards.
4) Power tool use and care
a) Do not force the power tool. Use the cor-
rect power tool for your application. The
correct power tool will do the job better
and safer at the rate for which it was de-
signed.
b) Do not use the power tool if the switch
does not turn it on and off. Any power
tool that cannot be controlled with the
switch is dangerous and must be re-
paired.
c) Disconnect the plug from the power
source and/or the battery pack from the
power tool before making any adjust-
ments, changing accessories, or storing
power tools. Such preventive safety
measures reduce the risk of starting the
power tool accidentally.
d) Store idle power tools out of the reach of
children and do not allow persons unfa-
miliar with the power tool or these in-
structions to operate the power tool.
Power tools are dangerous in the hands of
untrained users.
e) Maintain power tools. Check for mis-
alignment or binding of moving parts,
breakage of parts and any other condi-
tion that may affect the power tool’s op-
eration. If damaged, have the power tool
repaired before use. Many accidents are
caused by poorly maintained power tools.
f) Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Prop-
erly maintained cutting tools with sharp
cutting edges are less likely to bind and
are easier to control.
g) Use the power tool, accessories and tool
bits etc. in accordance with these in-
structions, taking into account the work-
ing conditions and the work to be per-
formed. Use of the power tool for
operations different from those intended
could result in a hazardous situation.
5) Battery tool use and care
a) Recharge only with the charger specified
by the manufacturer. A charger that is
suitable for one type of battery pack may
create a risk of fire when used with anoth-
er battery pack.
b) Use power tools only with specifically
designated battery packs. Use of any oth-
er battery packs may create a risk of injury
and fire.
c) When battery pack is not in use, keep it
away from other metal objects, like pa-
per clips, coins, keys, nails, screws or
other small metal objects, that can make
a connection from one terminal to anoth-
er. Shorting the battery terminals togeth-
er may cause burns or a fire.
d) Under abusive conditions, liquid may be
ejected from the battery; avoid contact.
If contact accidentally occurs, flush with
water. If liquid contacts eyes, additional-
ly seek medical help. Liquid ejected from
the battery may cause irritation or burns.
6) Service
a) Have your power tool serviced by a qual-
ified repair person using only identical
replacement parts. This will ensure that
the safety of the power tool is maintained.
Safety Warnings for Jigsaws
f Hold power tool by insulated gripping sur-
faces, when performing an operation where
the cutting accessory may contact hidden
wiring. Cutting accessory contacting a “live”
wire may make exposed metal parts of the
power tool “live” and could give the operator
an electric shock.
f Keep hands away from the sawing range.
Do not reach under the workpiece. Contact
with the saw blade can lead to injuries.
f Apply the machine to the workpiece only
when switched on. Otherwise there is dan-
ger of kickback when the cutting tool jams in
the workpiece.
f Pay attention that the base plate 7 rests se-
curely on the material while sawing. A jammed
saw blade can break or lead to kickback.

Bosch Power Tools 1 609 929 W85 | (15.7.10)
f When the cut is completed, switch off the
machine and then pull the saw blade out of
the cut only after it has come to a standstill.
In this manner you can avoid kickback and
can place down the machine securely.
f Use only sharp, flawless saw blades. Bent or
unsharp saw blades can break or cause kick-
back.
f Do not brake the saw blade to a stop by ap-
plying side pressure after switching off. The
saw blade can be damaged, break or cause
kickback.
f Use appropriate detectors to determine if
utility lines are hidden in the work area or
call the local utility company for assistance.
Contact with electric lines can lead to fire
and electric shock. Damaging a gas line can
lead to explosion. Penetrating a water line
causes property damage or may cause an
electric shock.
f Secure the workpiece. A workpiece clamped
with clamping devices or in a vice is held
more secure than by hand.
f Always wait until the machine has come to
a complete stop before placing it down. The
tool insert can jam and lead to loss of control
over the power tool.
f Do not open the battery. Danger of short-
circuiting.
Protect the battery against heat, e. g.,
against continuous intense sunlight,
fire, water, and moisture. Danger of
explosion.
f In case of damage and improper use of the
battery, vapours may be emitted. Provide
for fresh air and seek medical help in case
of complaints. The vapours can irritate the
respiratory system.
f Use the battery only in conjunction with
your Bosch power tool. This measure alone
protects the battery against dangerous over-
load.
f Use only original Bosch batteries with the
voltage listed on the nameplate of your pow-
er tool. When using other batteries, e. g. imi-
tations, reconditioned batteries or other
brands, there is danger of injury as well as
property damage through exploding batteries.

The vibration emission level given in this infor-
mation sheet has been measured in accordance
with a standardised test given in EN 60745 and
may be used to compare one tool with another.
It may be used for a preliminary assessment of
exposure.
The declared vibration emission level repre-
sents the main applications of the tool. However
if the tool is used for different applications, with
different accessories or poorly maintained, the
vibration emission may differ. This may signifi-
cantly increase the exposure level over the total
working period.
An estimation of the level of exposure to vibra-
tion should also take into account the times
when the tool is switched off or when it is run-
ning but not actually doing the job. This may sig-
nificantly reduce the exposure level over the to-
tal working period.
Identify additional safety measures to protect
the operator from the effects of vibration such
as: maintain the tool and the accessories, keep
the hands warm, organisation of work patterns.
Declaration of Conformity
We declare under our sole responsibility that
the product described under “Technical Data” is
in conformity with the following standards or
standardization documents: EN 60745 accord-
ing to the provisions of the directives
2004/108/EC, 2006/42/EC.

Replacing/Inserting the Saw Blade
f When mounting the saw blade, wear protec-
tive gloves. Danger of injury when touching
the saw blade.
Selecting a Saw Blade
An overview of recommended saw blades can
be found at the end of these instructions. Use
only T-shank saw blades. The saw blade should
not be longer than required for the intended cut.
Use a thin saw blade for narrow curve cuts.
Inserting the Saw Blade (see figure B)
f Clean the shank of the saw blade before in-
serting it. An unclean shank cannot be fas-
tened securely.
Insert the saw blade 11 into the stroke rod 17
until it latches. The SDS lever 12 automatically
snaps to the rear and the saw blade is locked.
Do not manually press the lever 12 toward the
rear, otherwise you could damage the machine.
While inserting the saw blade, pay attention that
the back of the saw blade is positioned in the
groove of the guide roller 9.
f Check the tight seating of the saw blade. A
loose saw blade can fall out and lead to inju-
ries.
Ejecting the Saw Blade (see figure C)
f When ejecting the saw blade, hold the ma-
chine in such a manner that no persons or
animals can be injured by the ejected saw
blade.
Turn the SDS lever 12 forward towards the con-
tact protector 13 to the stop. The saw blade is
released and ejected.
Dust/Chip Extraction
f Dusts from materials such as lead-containing
coatings, some wood types, minerals and
metal can be harmful to one’s health. Touch-
ing or breathing-in the dusts can cause aller-
gic reactions and/or lead to respiratory infec-
tions of the user or bystanders.
Certain dusts, such as oak or beech dust, are
considered as carcinogenic, especially in
connection with wood-treatment additives
(chromate, wood preservative). Materials
containing asbestos may only be worked by
specialists.
– As far as possible, use a dust extraction
system suitable for the material.
– Provide for good ventilation of the work-
ing place.
– It is recommended to wear a P2 filter-
class respirator.
Observe the relevant regulations in your
country for the materials to be worked.
f Prevent dust accumulation at the work-
place. Dusts can easily ignite.
Connecting the Dust Extraction
(see figures D–E)
Insert the vacuum connection 18 into the open-
ing of base plate 7.
Place a vacuum hose 19 (accessory) onto the
vacuum connection 18. Connect the vacuum
hose 19 with a vacuum cleaner (accessory). An
overview for the connection of various vacuum
cleaners can be found at the end of these in-
structions.
To enable optimum dust extraction, use the
splinter guard 20 if possible.

The vacuum cleaner must be suitable for the ma-
terial being worked.
When vacuuming dry dust that is especially det-
rimental to health or carcinogenic, use a special
vacuum cleaner.
Splinter Guard (see figure F)
The splinter guard 20 can prevent fraying of the
surface while sawing wood. The splinter guard
can only be used with certain saw blade types,
and only at a cutting angle of 0°. When sawing
with the splinter guard, the base plate 7 may not
be offset to the rear for sawing close to edges.
Press the splinter guard 20 from the bottom into
the base plate 7.
Sliding Shoe (see figure G)
The plastic guide plate 6 of base plate 7 reduces
sensitive surfaces from being scratched up.
When cutting metal, use the steel sliding shoe
21.
To mount the steel sliding shoe 21, insert it at
the front of the base plate 7, push it up at the
rear and allow it to engage.
Operation
Operating Modes
f Before any work on the machine itself (e. g.
maintenance, tool change, etc.) as well as
during transport and storage, remove the
battery from the power tool. There is danger
of injury when unintentionally actuating the
On/Off switch.
Orbital Action Settings
The four orbital action settings allow for optimal
adaptation of cutting speed, cutting capacity
and cutting pattern to the material being sawed.
The orbital action can be adjusted with the ad-
justing lever 8, even during operation.
The optimal orbital action setting for the respec-
tive application can be determined through
practical testing. The following recommenda-
tions apply:
– Select a lower orbital action setting (or
switch it off) for a finer and cleaner cutting
edge.
– For thin materials such as sheet metal,
switch the orbital action off.
– For hard materials such as steel, work with
low orbital action.
– For soft materials and when sawing in the di-
rection of the grain, work with maximum or-
bital action.
Adjusting the Cutting Angle (see figure H)
The base plate 7 can be swivelled by 45° to the
left or right for mitre cuts.
– Remove the vacuum connection 18.
– Loosen screw 22 with Allen key 5 and slide
the base plate 7 in toward the battery 3 to
the stop.
– For adjustment of precise mitre angles, the
base plate has adjustment notches on the
left and right at 0° and 45°. Swivel the base
plate 7 to the desired position according to
the scale 23. Other mitre angles can be ad-
justed using a protractor.
– Afterwards, push the base plate 7 to the stop
in the direction of the saw blade 11.
– Tighten the screw 22 again.
The vacuum connection 18 and the splinter
guard 20 cannot be used for bevel cuts.
Offsetting the Base Plate (see figure H)

Starting Operation
Inserting the Battery
f Use only original Bosch lithium ion batter-
ies with the voltage listed on the nameplate
of your power tool. Using other batteries can
lead to injuries and pose a fire hazard.
Insert the charged battery 3 from the rear into
the base of the power tool. Press the battery
completely into the base until the red stripe can
no longer be seen and the battery is securely
locked.
Switching On and Off
To start the machine, firstly press on the safety
switch 1 next to the symbol to deactivate it.
Then press and hold the On/Off switch 2.
To switch off the machine, release the On/Off
switch 2. Activate the safety switch 1 by press-
ing on it next to the symbol .
Note: For safety reasons, the On/Off switch 2
cannot be locked; it must remain pressed during
the entire operation.
Controling the Stroke Rate
Increasing or reducing the pressure on the
On/Off switch 2 enables stepless stroke-rate
control of the switched-on machine.
Light pressure on the On/Off switch 2 results in
a low stroke rate. Increasing the pressure also
increases the stroke rate.
The required stroke rate is dependent on the
material and the working conditions and can be
determined by a practical trial.
Reducing the stroke rate is recommended when
the saw blade engages in the material as well as
when sawing plastic and aluminium.
After longer periods of work at low stroke rate,
the machine can heat up considerably. Remove
the saw blade from the machine and allow the
machine to cool down by running it for approx.
3 minutes at maximum stroke rate.
Temperature Dependent Overload Protection
When using the machine as intended for, it can-
not be subject to overload. In case of excessive
load or when not within the permitted battery
temperature range of 0–70 °C, the speed is re-
duced or the machine switches off. With re-
duced speed, the machine will not run at full
speed again until after reaching the permitted
battery temperature or when the load is re-
duced. In case of automatic shut-off, switch the
machine off, allow the battery to cool down and
then switch the machine on again.
Protection Against Deep Discharging
The lithium ion battery is protected against
deep discharging by the “Electronic Cell Protec-
tion (ECP)”. When the battery is empty, the ma-
chine is switched off by means of a protective
circuit: The inserted tool no longer rotates.
Working Advice
f When sawing small or thin workpieces, al-
ways use a firm support.
Contact Protector
The contact protector 13 attached to the casing
prevents accidental touching of the saw blade
during the working procedure and may not be
removed.
Plunge Cutting (see figure I)
f Plunge cuts may only be applied to soft ma-
terials, such as wood, gypsum plaster
boards, etc.!
Use only short saw blades for plunge cutting.
Plunge cutting is possible only with the mitre an-
gle set at 0°.
Place the machine with the front edge of the
base plate 7 on to the workpiece without the
saw blade 11 touching the workpiece and
switch on. For machines with stroke rate con-
trol, select the maximum stroke rate. Firmly
hold the machine against the workpiece and by
tilting the machine, slowly plunge the saw blade
into the workpiece.
When the base plate 7 fully lays on the work-
piece, continue sawing along the desired cutting
line.

ing screw 24.
Circular Cuts (see figure K): Set the locking
screw 24 to the other side of the parallel guide.
Slide the scale of the parallel guide through the
lead 10 in the base plate. Drill a hole in the work-
piece centred in the section to be sawn. Insert
the centring tip 26 through the inside opening of
the parallel guide and into the drilled hole. Set
the radius as the scale value on the inside edge
of the base plate. Tighten the locking screw 24.
Coolant/Lubricant
When sawing metal, coolant/lubricant should be
applied alongside cutting line because of the
material heating up.
Maintenance and Service
Maintenance and Cleaning
f Before any work on the machine itself (e. g.
maintenance, tool change, etc.) as well as
during transport and storage, remove the
battery from the power tool. There is danger
of injury when unintentionally actuating the
On/Off switch.
f For safe and proper working, always keep
the machine and ventilation slots clean.
Clean the saw blade holder regularly. For this,
remove the saw blade from the machine and
lightly tap out the machine on a level surface.
Heavy contamination of the machine can lead to
malfunctions. Therefore, do not saw materials
that produce a lot of dust from below or over-
head.
Lubricate the guide roller 9 occasionally with a
drop of oil.
Check the guide roller 9 regularly. If worn, it
must be replaced through an authorised Bosch
after-sales service agent.
The plastic guide plate 6 should be replaced
when worn.
If the machine should fail despite the care taken
in manufacturing and testing procedures, repair
should be carried out by an after-sales service
centre for Bosch power tools.
In all correspondence and spare parts order,
please always include the 10-digit article
number given on the type plate of the machine.
