Another bad bosch router product

Another bad bosch router product

03-30-2014 01:55 AM by TheGermanJoiner | 17 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.

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?).

This is a serious jigsaw!

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. ...

A Saw For a Lifetime, Even for Proffessionals

A Saw For a Lifetime, Even for Proffessionals

02-09-2016 09:57 PM by Kelly | 6 comments »

For reference, this is my third Bosch saber saw. I bought my first one over twenty years ago. Before it, I bought “high end” B &D’s and others touted as professional quality. They all died within six months of heavy use. In contrast, I sold my first Bosch to my brother seven years after I bought it, when I upgraded [to the first model not requiring a screw driver for blade changes]. My first Bosch was a barrel and was bought by mistake. I had never used one before. A ...

Bosch Colt router has collet problems.

Bosch Colt router has collet problems.

I thought I would add to this review due to some of the replies I have received. Every time I operated the tool I experienced an issue with either the fence vibrating loose or the bit vibrating loose. Every time I operated the tool means maybe 7 or 8 times total. It appears to me some people think “every time” to mean 150 or 500 times or whatever they want it to mean. When purchased this tool was meant to go on a cnc router build I was going to do so other than looking it over ...

Does what it's supposed to do...  with a bit of frustration

Does what it's supposed to do... with a bit of frustration

04-20-2016 06:25 PM by vulgarviking | 3 comments »

They say hind sight is 20/20. I recently bought this because my stand alone Craftsman (diecast deluxe router table and cabinet) was taking up too much space in my one car garage and with the recent purchase of my Delta 36-5000, I needed all the space possible. So, I sold the Craftsman and rather than take the money to build a router table between the saw’s rails, I bought the Bosch. And the reason why I choose this is because the table is exactly 27 inches and with some modifications...

Bosch Miter Saw Crown Molding Stops

Bosch Miter Saw Crown Molding Stops

What is there to say but these are a must have. installation is not to too bad depending on the miter saw you have. And you may have to modify/shorten the tightening knobs. in my case things would have gone much smoother if I had removed the saw from my flip stand. I didn’t use the 4 short screws that come with the set since I was also in no mood to tap the holes and besides on most miter saws the metal is too thin and soft so I got few 8-32 screws and nuts and shortened them. the set ...
