This saw is discontinued now, replaced by a new model but some stores around me still have a few left on their shelves. I picked mine up for about $360.00, that price for a Bosch slider is pretty good in my books. As with any other miter saw out there dust collection sucks but that is to be expected I guess. It came with a 60 tooth blade that worked great but after its life was up I replaced it with a Freud. The only real problem that this one has is that it is very hard to pull down when you...

Bosch 5412L/T4B Combo Makes The Cut

Bosch 5412L/T4B Combo Makes The Cut

1839 days ago by CanuckGal | 14 comments »

It might not seem right for a person such as myself to be reviewing and rating a compound miter saw because I don’t have a lot of experience with them or many different models. But I think it’s suffice to say if a novice can buy and assemble one of these and use it within minutes of setup AND make dead on accurate cuts and miters then the saw almost speaks for itself. This is true of the Bosch 5412L 12” Sliding Dual Compound Miter Saw and Bosch T4B Gravity Rise Miter Saw ...

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...

Very little vibration on this little guy

Very little vibration on this little guy

1876 days ago by sIKE | 12 comments »

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...

Butter!

Butter!

1898 days ago by Emeralds | 3 comments »

This like most every Bosch tool I’ve had the privilege to use this is a quality machine. This tool is tough! It sports a perfectly balanced grip, a non-scratch shoe cover, a silky smooth variable speed trigger suitable for even the finest scrolling application, the most easily adjustable bevel angle base I’ve ever seen, a deep cycle long running NCAD, the standard battery used by virtually all tool companies but in the Bosch Blue Core format which promises future upgrade compatibility. Wit...

Bosch PS30 -- whole lotta torque

Bosch PS30 -- whole lotta torque

1919 days ago by Jim | 6 comments »

My 18V Makita finally died and I needed a replacement. I decided to get a more compact drill driver because I wanted to be able to get inside drawers, tight spaces, etc., not to mention the handyness of carrying a smaller tool. The PS30 isn’t as small as the PS20. The chuck is 3/8” – which I also wanted. And that’s what I got—not as big as a 1/2” drive, not as small as a 1/4”. Heavier and more powerful than just a driver but not as heavy as an 18V...

I picked up this sander last night at Lowe’s for $52. Seemed a little sturdier than the bargain basement ones from Black and Decker and Skil. The sander seemed stable and was coformtable in my hand so I brought it home. The ROS20VSK from Bosch already has a review here on Lumberjocks. In fact, that review is what sealed the deal when I was at the store. I wanted to see if the experience of this sander would be the same as the ROS20VSK. I don’t know the relationship between the ...

Bosch Colt Router

Bosch Colt Router

1993 days ago by wing79 | 19 comments »

I have this same router and I have been very impressed by the power and overall performance of the router. Maybe yours was an isolated case, or maybe mine? Either way I am sorry you have had problems, I would definitely return it. One other thing that made this router pretty sweet was the mini router table I made for it which is awesome for router small pieces and small rabbets. wing79

Bosch Trim Router

Bosch Trim Router

1994 days ago by Moron | 33 comments »

I bought this little router at HD as my 25 year old, never failed me, Black and Decker trim router was sounding like it was about to puke. I didnt look at prices as I am somewhat a believer in “buy once” ...then “cry once” then never cry again so it wasnt the least expensive one there. I use my trim router a lot, mostly for routing in butt hinges then clean it up with a chisel, same for inlaid bowties and “trimming” veneer and plastics etc., On first, se...

Bosch T308B Jig Saw Blades

Bosch T308B Jig Saw Blades

2004 days ago by Jim | 6 comments »

I had heard favoable reports of these blades and when I actually found them in a store here on Maui I was shocked. Usually we don’t get to see new products so quickly here. Anyway, I tried them and was very impressed. They cut on the up and the down. No to very little tearing even of veneered plywood. One less thing to think about—do I draw, and hence cut, on the bottom or the top of the plywood?!They’re a little thick so you can’t do tight turns, but other than tha...
