    Looks like a near-clone of the Bosch 1590 series jigsaws. I know the Bosch is very popular -- I sure like mine. The price difference on Amazon is only a couple of bucks. If it were me, I think I'd go with the Bosch, since it's a proven performer. (Look at the number of Amazon reviews for the two saws...3 for the Milwalkee and 72 for the Bosch.)

    I'm guessing you'll be happy with either one, though.

    Well It’s decided!
    I came home tonight, made supper, fired up the computer, ate,
    Then I looked beside me on the floor and there it was!
    Seems my lovely wife noticed me admiring the Milwaukee T Shank Orbital Jig Saw Model 6268-21
    in the the big blue box store for the past two weeks and bought it for me!

    I musta walked right by the saw ( in it’s big red plastic case no less) a half dozen times and didn’t even see it !!!!!

    What a sweetie I have, now I’m looking for the honey do list!

    Thanks to all for replying, great to have you guys around.


    Now, I just gotta find me a piece of wood !!!

    Dave.

    Congrats, Dave. On both the saw and the wife. Looks like you did well on both counts.

    So I own this jigsaw. To me it is the Bosch 1590 with an LED light. I can find no weight or stability differences in the Milwaukee vs the 1590 Bosch. Maybe it is me. I love mine. The 10' power cord is great as well. Cheaper than a festool
