Bosch JS470E Jigsaw needs new power switch!

Hi all, our amazing Bosch JS470E jigsaw has been loved to death! The analog variable speed power switch has worn out! The effect of this is that the saw runs at low speed when first plugged in, even if the switch is not pressed! Obviously this is dangerous, so I’ve put a lockout on the power plug until we can fix this tool.

This is where I need your help: I have the time and the know-how to replace the power switch, but I don’t have the money to order the replacement part. Is someone willing to order this part: for VHS?


I’ll get it from Amazon - with shipping it’ll be quite a bit cheaper. Should arrive in a couple of weeks as it’s coming from the US.


Do want me to take it across from the US. I comeback every weekend.

Whichever is easier. We still have another jigsaw, so we can wait for shipping. Thanks @rsim!

Thanks @tdwebste! I’ve sent you a PM.

Thanks to the one-two power combo of @tdwebste and US Prime shipping, this has already arrived at VHS! :grinning: :grinning: Thanks Tim!!

@Metal_Janet has put it in the dropbox.


That’s amazing. Thanks @tdwebste and @rsim.
