I recently bought a bosch 1584 Jigsaw kit and got a good deal on it. I
noticed on their website they do not offer it anymore and it looks like the
1591 has replaced it. Is there anything I should be worried about, does the
new model have any advantages over the old one? Thanks
You have a good saw. The newer saw simply adds conveniences that your model
does not have. Specifically, the blade change mechanism. On the newer
model you no longer have to go through a more complicated procedure to
change blades. On the new one, blade removal takes about 1 second and
putting in a blade takes about 5 or 6 seconds. With the older model you are
looking at about 30 seconds for the whole procedudure. IIRC the newer model
has a slightly better method of keeping the blade aligned when sawing, and a
touch more power.
You should be pleased with your new saw providing you use good quality
blades. Look at continuing to use Bosch blades. Also don't look at the new
one up close if you think you will tire of going through the blade change
routine on your current saw.
