I purchased the Bosch axial glide 10” dual bevel miter saw to replace a 20 year old Makita that I just plain wore out. I really wanted to increase the capacity of my miter saw for years but didn’t want to expand the depth of my cut off table and give up valuable floor space. Then the 12” axial glide was released a few years back. Again, I wanted to stay with a 10” saw because of the investment already made in 10” saw blades, all my blades are Forrest and all my s...

Perfect for beginning but will want for more

Perfect for beginning but will want for more

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...

Bosch Pocket Driver Packs a Punch

Bosch Pocket Driver Packs a Punch

01-25-2008 08:50 PM by Blake | 11 comments »

I really like my new pocket driver. Bosch has reinvented the cordless driver, and it leaves nothing to be desired. The way it fits in your hand makes you feel like a cowboy. No kidding. It really makes it want to practice your quick-draw. Due to it’s Li Ion battery it only weighs 4.88 lbs but delivers 80 in.-lbs. of Torque with a variable speed trigger. The LED light is the icing on the cake. I like my heavy duty DeWalt 14v cordless drill for boring holes but sometimes I go back a...

Not bad, Not Great

Not bad, Not Great

For a few years I made do with a ryobi plunge router. In fact it’s still going strong, but the time came for an upgrade. I knew I wanted a kit, that way I could put the fixed base under the router table and just switch the motor over. The plan was to make some rail and stile doors so I figured on at least a 2hp router. In doing the research it seemed like this router and the dewalt were fairly close. I wasn’t planing on doing much template routing and actually liked the feel...

Bosch 1617EVSPK: a fine museum piece

Bosch 1617EVSPK: a fine museum piece

06-13-2012 10:12 AM by foleyinmaine | 20 comments »

I purchased this router set about 2 months ago and it has performed as I expect any tool with Bosch’s name on it to perform: perfectly. What I didn’t expect, is just how beautifully finished this router is. This tool belongs in art museums to represent the epitome of modern industrial design. Everything about this router, including the case it comes in, suggests that the people who designed and built it cared about it, and that makes you care about it and the work you do with it. ...

I recently acquired a Bosch router, the variable speed 2 1/4 hp 1617. It is day and night compared to my old Ryobi. First, it comes in a massive blue case with ample room for the router motor, fixed base and plunge base as well as accessories. It comes with the 1/4 and 1/2” collets, a set of wrenches, a manual and a special wrench to adjust the plunge base from above the table. You can adjust the speed from 8000 to 25000 rpm by turning a dial. It is also variable speed and will eas...

Older Jigsaw

Older Jigsaw

06-21-2012 03:59 AM by Bob Kollman | 23 comments »

I bought this jigsaw about 3 months ago. The model is no longer available new, but after visiting 5 stores I was able to find this older model on display. I wanted the 1590evsk, because there have been so many reviews done on this model I knew it would meet my needs. As you see in the picture I bought a couple blades to go with the saw. This guy on e=bay puts up 89 blades a week on e=bay auction and I bought all these blades for 65 bucks. I even got a blade for cutting leather and rubber. ...

I was smitten with this little baby the first minute using it. I have gone thru three finish sanders; a cheapy from Harbor Freight, a Porter Cable, and most recently, a Craftsman, after only about a year. My wife said, “Why don’t you buy the best one, since you do so much sanding?” – which made sense. So, I did some research, including a recent FWW article, and decided on this Bosch. I paid about $70 at Lowe’s. As I said, right after starting ‘er up, ...

Very little vibration on this little guy

Very little vibration on this little guy

As I blogged yesterday my old PC 333 ROS went to the great tool yard in the sky in the middle of my project. I needed something quick so I could finish the project. After looking through the reviews here at LJ’s this was the one my mind was set on. It was $70 at Lowe’s but I got them to honor a coupon from the BORG and got $5 off. PRO’s - Very little vibration, unlike the old PC- Dust Collection was very effective as previously noted- Nice long power cord – seem...
