Bosch 12V Max I-Driver

This is my first review so go easy on me.. I was at my local sears store just looking around and i saw this bosch driver tucked away on a bottom shelf. It had a big factory reconditioned sticker on it. the battery was charged so so i gave it a try. sounded like it had a lot of torque and it worked great, looked great. sold! half the price of a new one. six months later now. i have drove over one thousand screws with this driver. the only thing that has happened to it is the the swi...

Small sander that does a big job

Small sander that does a big job

02-27-2010 09:52 PM by Sawdust4Blood | 8 comments »

I bought one of these because I was looking for a detail sander that could get me into the corners of furniture projects. But since I make sawdust almost every weekend, I was looking for something that was going to last. I had looked around at a lot of other detail sanders and they all struck me as cheap flimsy things designed to be used on one or two projects then forgotten or thrown away. I also considered a couple of the multi-function tools for their utility but sanding was more important...

Serious sander, seriously expensive

Serious sander, seriously expensive

I took a deep breath and forked over the money for this sander on the strength of the reviews on Amazon and in a couple of woodworking magazines. I’ve been a woodworker for 50 years and have had many random-orbits, belt sanders, profile sanders, etc., but this baby actually lives up to the hype. I just finished a kitchen remodel where I built about a dozen drawer boxes as well as face frames & cabinet doors. This sander cut my sanding time literally in half. Since most other random...

Sweet little tool

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...

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

08-07-2009 01:31 AM 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

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...

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.

Bosch PS30 -- whole lotta torque

Bosch PS30 -- whole lotta torque

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...
