Fixing my Jigsaw, isn't the internet great?

My jigsaw (a Bosch 1587AVS) won't allow me to change blades, bummer.  I could drop it at the repair place, but it is over a hour to drive there and surely over $100 to get it fixed. I was searching the internet and came across a YouTube video that showed how to fix it, and a link to buy the replacement part I'm like to need.  It is less than $20, all in.  I get to fix it myself too, which I like.

Computers and the internet make us all more efficient and wealthier.  Don't know about you, but I think it is so cool.
