My new bosch PS20 pocket driver

My new bosch PS20 pocket driver

07-02-2010 07:50 PM by lanwater | 18 comments »

This is a tool I picked up 2 weeks ago after my 18V power driver would not charge anymore.I originally set to buy a Dewalt from Lowes but ended up buying the Bosch PS20. While shopping there, I noticed they had the smaller footprint driver I have seen in many magazines. As an owner of other Bosch tools I decided to grab the Bosch PS20. Using it last week during assembly of one of my project was a delight. I liked it so much I decided to share a good tool with the LJ community. The packa...

Sweet little tool

Sweet little tool

12-19-2009 06:52 PM by Drewskie | 17 comments »

This is one of those tools that you buy for specific uses, so naturally I hemmed and haw for a while before purchasing. Over the last few months I have experienced using the Fein tool from time to time on different job sites. Once you use this type of tool you under stand the convenience, instead of breaking out you Japanese saw. I’m not one for long winded review, but I will say this Bosch always makes a quality tool and the quality, power and easy of use are on point with the Fein plus it...

Santa brought a New Bosch GCM12sd miter saw

Santa brought a New Bosch GCM12sd miter saw

12-26-2010 09:02 PM by SteveW | 17 comments »

My old Delta chopsaw has served me well for a number of years, but many recent projects hungered for a better way to cut compoundangles with a larger crosscutting capacity. Santa brought a new saw for me this Christmas. Its a Bosch GCM12sd, which is one very large saw, compared to the Delta chopsaw.This thing is amazing. The slide mechanism is a bit of engineering marvel if you ask me.The “articulating” arm, as they call it, moves effortlessly across the bed of the sawwith a o...

A good ready-made router table

A good ready-made router table

12-23-2011 10:02 PM by dadefreese | 17 comments »

This is pretty much the review I added to Lowes, which is where I bought this table: This table gets it right. The router mounting plate has many configurations for a variety of router brands and it features a large enough opening for biggest raised panel bits. The split fence is very nice as well with a t-track located above the split MDF auxiliary fences. The fence has a somewhat flimsy vacuum port and the back of the table also has a separate orifice for a dust collection hose to attach...

Another quick review: Bosch RO20VSK

Another quick review: Bosch RO20VSK

Third Update: Ignore the update below. Today, way after the fact I receive the roter plate Bosch, My faith in the company is restored. Good thing too because I own three of their tools, the sander, a 12” compound sliding miter saw, and their fantastic plunge router. I’m glad to see they keep their word even if belated. Thanks Bosch. Another Update (The above updates this older paragraph) 9/25: Read below regarding velcro problems. Bosch never followed through sending me the new...

G reat little impact driver - Bosch PS40-2

G reat little impact driver - Bosch PS40-2

06-10-2008 12:06 AM by GaryK | 16 comments »

I was looking for a small driver so that I wouldn’t keep having to swap bits out in my drill. I wasn’t really looking for an impact driver, but then I found about the rebate Bosch is currently having. Buy an impact driver and get a PS20 (non-impact version) for free. Now it doesn’t include a battery but the PS40 does include 2. So now I get both for the price of one. I got it for the out the door price of $142. How does it perform? Well, I drove a #8×3” deck...

Another bad bosch router product

Another bad bosch router product

03-30-2014 01:55 AM by TheGermanJoiner | 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.

This is a serious jigsaw!

This is a serious jigsaw!

05-14-2015 12:42 AM by Shadowrider | 16 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. ...

Bosch 5" Variable Speed Orbital Sander

Bosch 5" Variable Speed Orbital Sander

02-27-2014 05:02 AM by PaulLL | 15 comments »

I got a side job refinishing the slabs in the picture. They are stair treads going on a steel staircase that I built at my day job. 16 of them that our original finisher messed up with a crappy faux finish white wash, instead of the faux limed oak look that it was supposed to have. I was using my 5” King orbital to sand off the white but “unfortunately” is took a spill off my bench. So I checked my Popular Mechanic stack, remembering there was a sander ranking in one of ...
