BOSCH Glide Saw, Up For Review

BOSCH Glide Saw, Up For Review

06-18-2015 07:13 PM by woodshopmike | 13 comments »

The BOSCH GCM12SD dual bevel glide saw is a remarkable tool that takes accuracy and ease of use to a new level. Now that I’ve completely let the cat out of the bag that I like this tool, lets see why. The most obvious features are the upfront controls and the super smooooooth axial glide that BOSCH has engineered and patented. These upfront controls not only allow for rotating the table, but also make it possible to tilt the blade left to right. Yes, that means you no longer have ...

Review of Bosch 4100-09 saw and stand

Review of Bosch 4100-09 saw and stand

05-23-2015 08:29 PM by Ccl2011 | 5 comments »

PLEASE EXCUSE THE PICTURE, LUMBER JOCKS REQUIRED ONE. I AM AWAY FROM HOME AND COULDN’t RUN OUT TO THE GARAGE TO SNAP A SHOT. I am writing a review of my Bosch saw after a few months of use. I bought this saw last November after my Ryobi saw up and died during a project. I looked at several saws in the $600-$800 range and narrowed it down to four options. The Bosch and DeWalt jobsite saws, and the Delta and Ridgid contractor saws. My requirements were in a realativly compact saw th...

This is a serious jigsaw!

This is a serious jigsaw!

05-14-2015 12:42 AM by Shadowrider | 14 comments »

I just purchaced this saw from Amazon on my Prime membership because my wife wanted some arts and craft projects cut out. They were about 16” x 20” and are going to be painted to look like a Mason Jar. I used 5mm birch ply. I was able to cut two at a time and the saw didn’t even know it was cutting anything. However a 10mm thickness in a pretty tight inside radius was a little too much for the Bosch 20 tooth Xtra-clean blade. I turned it a nice blue oxide color. Oops. ...

Awesome Vibration Dampening

Awesome Vibration Dampening

02-12-2015 07:57 PM by CypressAndPine | 6 comments »

I’ll start by saying that I don’t notice much difference in the sanding ability of the 3 different orbital sanders I’ve owned. First was a cheap pawn shop Porter Cable, second was a cheap new Dewalt, and now this very expensive Bosch. All of them sand wood very close to equal. However there are two huge differences I will state: 1. VIBRATION: I’m an offshore electrician and I have every nerve, tissue, bone issue you could think of in my hands and lower arms. My o...

Excellent fit/finish and ergonomics, but feels underpowered

Excellent fit/finish and ergonomics, but feels underpowered

11-26-2014 03:30 PM by paxorion | 6 comments »

I bought this sander (actually the Bosch20VSC with the only difference being a canvas bag vs the hard case) on a whim during Home Depot’s clearance of sanders. My rationale for purchasing this sander, was to have a speed sander and to devote separate 5” ROS sanders to different grits of sandpaper. In addition, for the price I paid for it (about $30), I figured I have very little to lose. Good: Overall impression, is that the sander has an excellent fit and finish and stellar ...

Perfect for beginning but will want for more

Perfect for beginning but will want for more

08-19-2014 02:18 PM by jshroyer | 18 comments »

When i was just starting out woodworking i didnt know anything about tools. I went to school for engineering and did mostly metal working. From this i knew i didnt want a tiny little tool that wouldnt work worth a darn and to make sure that the model i bought was common enough to get parts and accessories. After searching google for table saw review and beginner table saw i found the bosch 4100-09. It was just what i thought would be perfect. A portable table saw for moving apartments. It ran...

Can't believe how smoothly this jigsaw cuts

Can't believe how smoothly this jigsaw cuts

08-15-2014 01:52 AM by CharlesA | 31 comments »

For years I had a Skil jigsaw, a hack tool if there ever was one. I got in the habit of always cutting well outside the line and then sanding down to the line because of the roughness of the cut, no matter the blade or cutting mode on that machine. I found this Bosch on the CPO website for about $95 18 months ago. The first thing I noticed was how big and hefty it was compared to the Skil I think that helps stabilize it on cuts. I’ve mainly used it for rough work. Yesterday I ...

Bosch 4100 left and rear extensions

Bosch 4100 left and rear extensions

05-18-2014 03:29 AM by Holbs | 7 comments »

Wish I had known about these accessories sooner! For the last year, using the bosch 4100 table saw has been great, but these support extensions make me feel much more safer. These 2 extensions are a must have for the few left out there that use the bosch 4100. Granted, these supports do not replace TRUE structure table outfeed supports but for what it is, they are highly acceptable and affordable ($27 each?).

Brand new Bosch semi auto vacuum VAC090s

Brand new Bosch semi auto vacuum VAC090s

04-19-2014 12:55 AM by Jonwilliam | 12 comments »

I had some discretionary money to “invest” in a new tool and I settled on a vacuum. It was between the Festool ct 26-36 or the new Bosch line of vacuums. Vac140a/s, Vac140a/s. The “a” is for auto, the “s” is for semi-auto filter cleaning. I had to make a decision quick due to festool’s price increases the first of this month. So since I am also in construction (excavating) I went with the Bosch and so far am very pleased. I already have a grea...

Another bad bosch router product

Another bad bosch router product

03-30-2014 01:55 AM by Vertigo | 16 comments »

What the heck. For a company that makes such a good router their accessories suck. I used this template guide for maybe 2 feet cutting out miter slots on my new outfeed table see here and the collet snapped off of the plate. It took a nice chunk out of my carbide upcut spiral bit. I will be contacting bosch to see if I can get some compensation. If they make good on it I will let you know. If I don’t update this assume they suck still.
