    Editorial Review

    Bosch's 10-inch Worksite table saw might just be the best of the current bunch. Benchtop table saws--which weigh 60 to 100 pounds and are light enough for one person to carry from the truck to the job site--have increased in popularity in recent years. They set up easily on a workbench or sawhorses and generally feature stable components that make them great for pros and serious hobbyists alike. Although at 60 pounds the Bosch is lighter than any other saw in its class, this saw is no lightweight. It sports a die-cast undercarriage and powerful 4.4-horsepower, 15 amp motor--burly components that make it a serious, albeit slight, contender. Conveniently, the Bosch comes ready to use right out of the box; we were making cuts about 10 minutes after the UPS delivery. Plus, it's the only benchtop table saw with an arbor lock, so mounting the blade is a one-wrench affair (less chance for busted knuckles). The wrench--like all those that come with Bosch tools--is forged, rather than stamped, and so there are no sharp edges that dig into your hand during blade changes. It's a small detail, but one that matters and one that's typical of the attention to detail paid by Bosch engineers.

    A flip of the paddle-style on/off switch initiates the soft-start electronics, which ramp the blade up to speed quickly without any disturbing jolt. The electronic feedback, popular on many saws today, keeps the blade turning at a constant speed, no matter what the load. The fence is the heart of any table saw and we found Bosch's to be a beauty. It's well machined and locks securely and accurately to the table. The cam-lock handle is padded, seats flush, and feels good to use. Like the comparable DeWalt saw, the Bosch features an extendable fence that makes it easy to rip four-by-eight panel material. It feels solid and slides smoothly, and the scales are easy to read. (There's even a built-in magnifying glass to cut down on the squint factor.) As with all the new Bosch tools, wrenches and removable items store nicely onboard the saw. The fence snaps into a holder on the side of the saw and stays put, and the miter gauge slides into a slot on the front of the tool--yet another small detail that we appreciate. The bottom line? The Bosch is a powerful saw that handles big stock without bogging down. --Mark McDonald ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars THE Best portable table saw EVER
    I have been a carpenter for over 20 years.I have never used a portable table saw as nice as this one.Very Happy

    4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent saw but now having problems
    I've owned my saw for almost 2 years and I do finish carpentry along with some general carpentry and I am always loading and unloading this thing from my truck. I love the acurracy, smooth start and steady power. I have always had problems changing the saw blade because the inside blade gaurd gets in the way when taking the blade on and off. I've had to grind the corners off the gaurd to eliminate this problem. More recently the mechanism that tilts the blade wont tighten up and I can'tfigure out how to adjust this, now I have to take it in to a service center. Also the stand has problems locking in the upright position.
    This sounds like I dont like the saw but I really do, I am just frustrated with these issues and I dont have time to drop my saw off for several weeks while it gets repaired.

    4-0 out of 5 stars No Portable Saw Deserves 5, But This Is The Best By Far
    I'm a home remodeler, so I really pay attention to the portability of a job site table saw, as well as its performance. On both of these levels, the Bosch is simply the best. I've used, owned, or researched just about every job site saw out there from the major manufacturers, and side by side, there really is no competition. I know a lot of folks eventually pit the Bosch against the DeWalt, however, I found it impossible to believe that the DeWalt fence system, as smooth as it is, can withstand the day-to-day abuse a job site saw must endure. Yes, the table top of the Bosch is easily marred, and the splitter ain't worth a damn; however, for what it is, and what it is supposed to do, the Bosch is the one to get.

    Oh yeah, as I stated above, no portable table saw out there, not even the Bosch, merits a 5 star rating. The very nature and purpose of a portable table saw means that some things must be sacrificed in its engineering and construction, usually on the performace end, or on the portability end (sometimes both!) It just seems crazy to me to expect the performance of a cabinet saw when portability is required as well. Something's gotta give!!! ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Bosch's 1617EVSPK is a strong entry in the 2-1/4-horsepowercombination router market. Solid, all-magnesium construction makes theBosch durable and lightweight, while special touches, such as woodenhandles on the fixed base and contoured, soft-grip handles on the plungebase, add to the comfort of users and give the tool a look ofdistinction lacking in some of its competitors. Of course, looks areonly skin deep, and this router has plenty to offer below the surface aswell. At its heart, a powerful 12 amp, 2-1/4-horsepower motor deliversconsistent results at variable speeds of 8,000 to 25,000 rpm. Theexclusive precision centering design ensures bits are perfectly centeredin the router base, a handy feature for maintaining accurate cut lines.A wider-than-average base opening provides superior visibility andallows the Bosch to accept larger bits, while a micro bit-depthadjustment system makes fine-tuning fast and easy. Unlike manycomparable routers, the Bosch 1617EVSPK is designed to move from base tobase without the use of tools. Instead, it clamps solidly into place forquick and easy transfers. What's more, the motor never rotates whileadjusting depths, allowing you to stow the power cord on either sidewhere it's out of the way. --Carl Thress ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Information on switch problem
    Ok, Do you want to put this whole switch issue to bed?I took my non-functioning switch out last night and disassembled it.The switch is fine, there are no electronics inside, it is a standard toggle switch.The problem is it is the wrong switch for this application.When I opened mine there was at least 1/8-1/4 teaspoon of saw dust packed in there.So the only problem was that the contacts were being held open because there was saw dust between therm.I just cleaned all the dust out and put it back together and it worked fine.

    There is a new Bosch part number for the replacement switch, which indicates a design change.I hope the new switch is sealed, but I don't know yet because I haven't received mine in the mail.If it is not I'm going to look to find one that is the right size and amp that is sealed and it should stop this issue altogether.

    I think mine failed sooner than most because I have used it in my router table more than free hand routing and my table has an enclosed area for the router which does get pretty dusty, I think static draws the dust in from the outside because the switch body is pretty well sealed from the inside workings of the router.

    Good Luck

    4-0 out of 5 stars Awsome router kit
    Simply put, this combo kit is the one to get.Powerful and very easy to use.The soft start and variable speed are very nice.The case is comes with is pretty nice, bits and wrenches have a spot inside as well.I've only logged about 15 hours with it and have only one complaint, the switch stopped working.I took it apart and cleaned it up and it worked fine again.But other than that I've loved every minute with it.I'm a carpenter and furniture making hobbiest.Definately worth buying.Bosches portable table saw is very good also.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best tool in my shop

    Editorial Review

    Bosch builds good saws. This 10-inch sliding compound miter saw has the smooth, easy-to-control action we demand in a slider. This saw's built burly, too--here's a slider that looks likely to survive a tumble off the back of a pickup truck (not that we tested it). The blade guard has good action and retracts well, so visibility and motion aren't restricted when cutting and there's no danger of it binding or sticking. The grip is contoured and tapered for the human hand, no matter the size--but there is a safety switch that makes this saw difficult to use left-handed. Bosch has also cleverly mounted the important wrenches and keys on the body of the saw (exactly the sort of attention to detail that makes toolhounds happy). We tip our hardhats to the good people at Bosch; they've made a great saw. --Michael Shilling ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Bosch rocks
    Personally, I think woodworkers around the country should trade in their power tools for credit and replace them all with Bosch.
    I started using bosch tools over 12 years ago in a furniture shop, and my first experience with their tools was a jigsaw, which apparently has since reached legendary status.
    This particular jigsaw was thoroughly abused every day for years.We'd burn through all the sears brand stuff, replacing them every few months, but the Bosch tools only needed the occasional cleaning and replacement blade.
    I saw first hand the kind of torture Bosch tools could withstand and have been a devoted fan ever since.
    In addtionl to the durabiltiy inherent in nearly ALL their tools, i've also found them to be highly ACCURATE, which is absolutely required when crafting furniture.
    This particular tool carries on the long tradition of high quality, tough, accurate and well designed tools from bosch.
    I'd give their tools 6 stars if i could.

    5-0 out of 5 stars You won't beat this deal!
    I must admit I was worried about purchasing this saw, because it seemed to cheap (price) compared to comparable Dewalt, Porter Cable, makita saws.However, bosch makes great equipment, and they came through with this one as well.

    After setting this up and testing it, I have to give it 5 stars simply because the price is unbelievable, and the saw performs flawlessly.There are a few minor things I would change if I could, but they are minimal and not very important, only matters of design, convenience, etc. see below.

    One negative reviewer stated that the detents weren't adjustable, and couldn't believe Bosch would build a saw without adjustments.This is incorrect.In order to adjust the angles on a miter saw, you need to change the relative position of the detents to the fence.On some saws, like the Porter cable, you can move the detents.On others, such as this, you move the fence.(The detents are cast in position and can't be moved).My saw wasn't correct out of the box, so I followed the instructions and loosed the fence and squared it to the blade with a combination square.However, this was difficult to do, and it still ended up slightly out of adjustment when tested on a board.My advice, which made it a piece of cake:Pick a 12" piece of wood with a perfectly straight edge (I used MDF), make a cut, check the square, adjust the fence and retighten, make another cut, and continue until you are dead on square at 90 degrees.This method wasted a little bit of wood, but I got it adjusted dead on accurate in about 5 minutes, and no fumbling around with a square against the blade.

    Once I got the 90 degree detent in position, I checked the others making 45 degree cuts in both directions on 6 inch material and the results were PERFECT.I mean dead on perfect.I can't imagine better miters.

    Another reviewer said there was play in the detents of 1 degree or so.If you put it in a detent and don't tighten the knob, there is some play, but only like 1/4 degree or so, and if you tighten the knob as you are supposed to, the play is taken up and the blade centers on the detent dead on in the middle, same place everytime I try it.If used correctly, there is no play.

    Other positive's:
    -Comes with a quality 40 tooth blade.You don't have to buy a new blade to get good results with this saw.Most of the others come with a cheap blade that will cause tear out on your trim.
    -Wrenches included for fence and blade, and mounted on the rear of the saw in convenient places.you'll never find yourself without the wrench you need.
    -Adjustable slide on left end of saw gives you a little bit of extension in the table, about 4-5 inches.
    -No upward kick with startup like my old delta saw, and what I hear from dewalt.I hated my old saw for that.I would line up the cut, and then when I hit start, the saw would kick and make my board jump, and I'd have to line it up again with the blade spinning.This saw doesn't do that, I'm happy to say.

    Negatives:
    -Dust collection isn't very effective, but I've never seen a miter saw that is.Seems average to me.
    -Handle is vertical position.I would prefer horizontal like the dewalt, but I don't think it's worth paying the extra money.Then again, I don't make miter cuts all day everyday.
    -Blade guard is a little too cautious in my opinion, and not adjustable.Guard stays pretty low to the table, so when you are lining up the cut, you have to have your eyes nearly level with the board to see your mark.In other words, the guard obstructs your view if you are looking from above the saw at all.Easy fix is to mount the saw in a high position, as most people do with miters anyway.However, if you put the saw on the floor temporarily to do a few quick cuts, this can be a real pain.

    Overall, a lot of thought went into the design of this saw.It is well constructed, the quality you'd expect from bosch, and dead-on accurate.It does everything I would expect it to do and more, and at a price that I still can't believe.I had reservations before I bought it, but now I'm thrilled that I did.Thanks Bosch!

    5-0 out of 5 stars great blade
    It's great for slicing wood (walnut,maple,redwood,and mahagony) very clean and precise.It can slice just about anything.I have read that the Makita has a nice blade included with their model and the Hitachi with the LAZER sounds cool ($500.00) but this saw was excellent for the price. ...

    Editorial Review

    Bosch invented the jig saw, and, with its top-handle models, it's getting close to perfecting it. The 1587AVSK has a nicely shaped handle, tapered where other saws are not, and a nice rubber grip that lets users (of all hand sizes) steer the tool firmly in hand. (Some toolmakers ignore ergonomics, but not Bosch--and we appreciate it.) The safety mechanism works well with the trigger, and the cut is super smooth. We like the variable-speed dial, the light weight, and the foot plate's plastic cover, which ensures that surfaces won't get scratched as they can by saws with metal plates. The blade-change system--if a little tricky at first--works great. No question about it, this jig saw keeps up Bosch's reputation as one of the prime movers in the power tool industry. --Michael Shilling ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great saw but...
    this is a great saw because it is well balanced and operates very smoothly. The case is very good with metal clasps that are durable, however the built-in storage area inside the case never stays closed so every time I open the case I have to stuff the spare blades back in and close the storage cover. I have had some problems with this saw that include the quick blade change mechanism, it would not release the blade easily and would not tighten all the time. I had to return it and get a new one, I bought it at Lowes so it was easy to return for a new one. Last week I droped the saw and bent the shoe so I need to replace that part but I think I'll upgrade to the Bosch 1590EVSK

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great jigsaw but documentation should be better
    I graduated from the Sears Craftsman "aren't all jigsaws the same?" mindset when I was blown away by this great saw.I found myself with limited access to tools and needed to build; this saw handled every task beautifully.Thick, thin, rip, crosscut, bevel--smooth, powerful, and accurate.The tool-less blade change is a real luxury.

    As a first time user I encountered a few bumps in the road:First, the instructions say to turn the blade change handle counterclockwise 3 turns and insert/twist the blade.Much frustration and repetition and still no luck (is it me or is it the saw?The blade won't budge!).Finally I just kept turning the handle counterclockwise and with 6 turns there was enough laxity in the shank to turn the blade and center it on the guides. Whew. I was off to the races! But it takes me 5 or 6 turns every time (definitely NOT 3). Second, the saw came with a nice assortment of blades (including the Progressors) but they looked nothing like the Sears blades I have used for 20 years. No big deal for the pros among you, but why are the teeth angled up instead of down I wondered?And what is the best use for all these different kinds of blades?No clues in the owner's manual, so I went to the "home center" closest by and looked over the selection of Bosch blades and read all the packages. I can't say I picked up much knowledge as the fronts and backs of given packages were inconsistent in their descriptions, and the descriptions were inconsistently worded between blade types. Hey Bosch, lots of room for improvement here! All the blades that looked like woodcutting blades made great, smooth cuts, so maybe it doesn't matter that much. I uased them on walnut, cherry, andfir. Third, the 90 degree detent has a fair bit of play and takes some tinkering to get the base truly square.Once I got it squared up and tightened down there was no drift despite hours of use--unlike my two Craftsman jigsaws that liked to drift and flex, requiring frequent readjustment and gnashing of teeth (my teeth, that is).

    Bottom line for you Sears diehards (excuse the pun): get a real jigsaw a start having fun.If you look around, most HD stores are still stocked from the Christmas special bundle deal: the 1587 plus a free variable speed Bosch 5" orbital sander (which works wonderfully, by the way).

    I'll be buying more Bosch.

    I own a small home improvement/remodeling company, I use this tool frequently and really like it.

    Editorial Review

    This is the barrel-grip version of Bosch's bestselling top-handle 1587 model. Many woodworkers prefer the barrel grip on this model, however, arguing that it's easier to cut scrolls and curves when the saw is pushed forward (as opposed to down). Aside from the difference in grip, this saw is much like its top-handle counterpart: the balance is superb, the 5 amp motor packs plenty of power, the foot plate tilts left and right (up to 45 degrees), and the base retracts for flush cutting. The tool-free blade-changing system also works well. Simply put, this a compact, powerful, well-designed saw--a perfect buy for users who prefer barrel grips. --Jon Groebner ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful tool
    Whether ripping straight lines through plywood or making intricate scroll cuts, this jigsaw performs flawlessly.The quality is apparent just by holding it your hand- it's one of those tools that will probably outlive it's owner...Knocking it because of the country of origin is a philosophical/political argument and says nothing about the actual quality of the tool.Bosch's industry best 3 year warranty and the positive comments from people who have actually used it speaks volumes though.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Made in China, should be $10
    Where is the savings?Pay a premium for an item made in China at a huge discount.That sounds like a good deal (no jobs left and no savings - sign me up for that program).I will return this "discounted" item asap; or better yet, use it as a hammer.

    My quest begins for tools made in this country - such as Milwaukee orbital sawzall: good price, excellent tool, would have paid much more.I do not care if a tool(made here) costs three times as much as one made in China and I have to spend three weeks locating it!Tell that to your economics professor.


    5-0 out of 5 stars Made in China -- so what?
    I first bought a DeWalt, and it was horrible -- tons of blade deflection, slow cutting, etc. Someone recommended the Bosch, and it was like night and day. This is the Cadillac of jigsaws! I've owned the top handle version for six years now, and I'm about to add the barrel grip to my collection.

    To the reviewer who was shocked to discover that this "supposedly quality tool" was made in China (which has long been known as the PRC): did you really give this excellent tool one star simply due to its origin? My goodness, I'm going to love explaining this to my friends here in China... ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Bosch has really broken ahead of the pack with their new miter finder/digital protractor/angle finder. The handiest thing, in our opinion, you can do with this tool is calculate miter and bevel angles for crown molding cuts easily and efficiently--using the molding spring angle and the corner angle as your input. It's also great for remodelers who often need to cut trim at odd angles to achieve a good fit. The tool's digital display is large and easy to read, and there's also a hold function that freezes the measurement. The finder also has an old-school leveler, so you know you're operating in pure horizontal reality. Plus, it fits lightly in your hand. Really, this is a very cool and unique tool, one we think finish carpenters and remodelers will find invaluable in their quest for quick, perfect fits. --Michael Shilling ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars My angle finder is precise!
    I hadn't been able to perfectly square-up my 12" radial arm saw until I bought the Bosch DWM40L Miter Finder Digital Protractor/Angle Finder.Using a large square, or my other protractor tools, the blade appeared to be at a perfect right angle to the fence, but cuts were ever so slighly off-square.Placing one edge of this tool on the 12" blade and the other on the left side of saw fence, it read 89.7 degrees.Placing it on the blade and the right side of the fence, it read 90.3 degrees -- the perfect complement of the first reading.After a good bit of adjusting on the saw, I was finally able to get a 90.0 reading on both sides.Now, the radial arm saw cuts accurate right angles.I used this tool to "perfectly" set right angles on several tools, and have used it sucessfully in construction projects to precisely match angles.

    I agree with another reviewer that said the tool should have a locking mechinism to hold the desired angle.However, since the angle is clearly displayed on the LED readout, it's not difficult to adjust the tool to whatever angle you want if it changes.

    This tool a huge technological leap forward when compared to mechanical protractors/angle finders; because the electronic LED display shows the angle to a tenth of a degree.If you don't need that level of precision, consider a less expansive angle finder, such as the excellent Starrett 505A-12 ProSite Protractor.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Efficient and NEARLY (not exactly) precise, but...
    This product does NOT, I repeat, does not give you an accurate reading--at least not for 90-degrees, anyway. I own the most squared stainless steel square ever built. It is the same square I use to establish set angles on my table saws and other tools. When lining the DWM against it, the DWN falls short. Nothing monumental--we're talking fractions of a degree, nonetheless... take it for what it's worth.
    The product appears to be durable and the programmable angle calculations are anon and accurate. But... is this product actually worth the price? Absolutely not. And here's why.

    The manufacturer lists accessories for this angle finder. One of the most important ones is the extension. That extension should NOT be an accessory; it should be included in the price because 3 out of 5 angles I measure do not have long enough bases to rest the tool on. Hence, the extension. Are you reading this, Bosch? Stop being so cheap!
    Further, the case is extra as well. I mean, come on! Nearly every tool that is sold on the market comes with its own case. What makes this product any different? Oh, I know... capitalism. Yes, it's certainly well constructed and definitely not meant to be banged around. So why not include the carrying case with it? Make the extension and the carrying case part of the package, then, YES... the price would be worth it.
    One more con. I cannot believe the engineers of the DWM opted not to place an angle lock on this device. I really can't. If you're using this product to measure, let's say, several measurements containing the same angle, God forbid you accidentally bang it, or bang the tool into the wood, etc. You'll instantly lose the angle. It's not as feeble as you may assume upon reading this; nonetheless, it will indeed move with the slightest nudge.
    Hope this helps....

    5-0 out of 5 stars Worth learning how to use it
    I bought this over a year ago to help with a house I'm building. I started doing the kitchen and couldn't remember the directions so I did part of the kitchen, a inside and outside corner without it. I was all trial and error and I wasted alot of wood.

    I decided to sit down and learn how to use this tool and it was worth it.I finished the rest of a large kitchen with a few crazy angles in one day and it came out great.

    I just wished I learned how to use it properly sooner. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars I won't buy from Bosch again!
    We have a high end millwork shop and often build large quantites of custom doors and jambs. I recently purchased a Delux Bosch hinge template kit to speed up production of our doors. The template itself is a very good product and works well, however the kit arrived with a router bushing and bit to mortise 1/4" radius hinges. Before opening our millwork shop, I was a commercial/residential contractor for 27 years and have not seen a 1/4" radius hinge for 20 years. The standard hinge for door manufacturers is a 5/8" hinge. I spent 4 hours going through the enclosed instruction manual and calling local tool suppliers trying to find out what I needed to cut a 5/8" radius hinge. There is no mention whatsoever in the instruction manual refrencing what is needed to cut different radiuses. The next day I spent another 3 hours on the internet and Bosch's website trying to determine what I needed to cut a 5/8" radius hinge and while Bosch does reference different parts for the template by part number they do not tell you what the purpose of these parts are. I contacted one of the largest Bosch distributors in the southeast and drove 2 1/2 hrs to their place of business. After working with 2 salemen and the owner for 3 1/2 hours we finally determined what was needed to cut a 5/8" radius hinge with this template. The solution to this problem was for me to purchase a fourth router( Bosch of course), a bushing and bit at an additional cost of $285.00. Including the time and travel expense I lost trying to mortise 47 doors, I could paid for 35% of the cost of a production mortiser. To make this short, I will not purchase another Bosch Tool until they drastically change their, instruction manuals, website and cataloging of their tools. I CAN"T AFFORD THEM!!!!!!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best adjustable template kit
    The Bosch hinge template kit is the best of all the numerous metal adjustable templates available. Bosch bought the tool from Stanley tools decades ago, and Stanley bought it from someone else years before that. It is an old design that is yet to be improved upon by anyone else. Although the initial price seems high compared to lesser capable templates like the Porter cable, you will make that money back very quickly in time saved and problems avoided.

    I use this tool for retrofit and for new construction and no longer carry fixed templates anymore. For new construction, you simply spend a few minutes assembling and configuring the template and then it is good to go for days of door hanging. It takes just moments to switch the hinge size for different door thicknesses, a time saver compared to fetching another full size template that could be lost in a different part of the jobsite. Retrofitting new doors in old jambs is cake as you can easily match the template to the old hinge layout for perfect mortises that fit the first time.

    The rails have holes that engage ball bearings on the template frames. This prevents the hinge layout from changing if you should drop the tool on end. If you have ever used the PC template and bumped it while transferring from the door to the jamb, you know what a problem it is too have the template spacing change on you.

    Onroom additions, it is easy to match the hinge layout for the new doors and jambs to match the old doors due to the adjustability of the Bosch template (this is important in situations where the new doors are close to old doors and the homeowner would notice the hinges not lining up). The kit comes with 2 top guides of different lengths that accomodate any top hinge spacing you will find in the field. The rails allow infinite adjustment so you can quickly match any hinge layout.

    One thing the PC has over the bosch is that edge stops retract. This is only an issue when remortising the hinge gaines on an old jamb that has casing and caulking too close to the jamb edge. On the Bosch, the fixed edge stops can sometimes hit the caulking or casing and prevent the template sections from laying completely flat. On the PC, the stops can retract to counteract this problem, but overall the Bosch is significantly more accurate in retrofit situations.

    When you first get your new Bosch template kit, you need to fine tune the hinge length stops. From the factory, they are not correct. Two screws loosen and allow an adjustable plate to be moved into the correct position. A quick run on a 2x4 lets you check for perfection before you ever touch an expensive door.

    As mentioned by others, the small metal case is much more user friendly than the extra long PC box, but it doesn't hold the 4 hinge conversion kit or the 3 hinge extended rail kit. What most guys do is buy an additional standard kit, and make custom wooden rails for 8 to 10 foot doors. This way you have 6 template sections instead of four, and you can theoretically have 2 guys hanging 6-8 doors for more production.

    The nails are very strong, I have spares but haven't had a problem with breakage at all. In fact, you can order from Bosch any part you need and can get stuff shipped next day if the parts are in stock.

    The jamb gauges only fit Timely or hollow metal frames, so you need to file them down to fit wood jambs for retrofit jobs. But there are other ways to match existing hinge layouts so I don't recommend the jamb gauges unless you like to order book doors for commercial jobs or do nothing but retrofit.

    Like any metal template, when you hit it with the router bit, it gets nicked and the bit can get damaged. But the template sections completely disassemble so any damaged part can be replaced. More than once I forgot to put the template guide in the router and got some healthy gouges in the template. A call to Bosch and all was fixed. Usually, though, you will nick the sides or length adjustment plate and these are quickly fixed in the field. The sides can be "reversed" and the length stops can be filed flat and readjusted. The hinge size adjustment bar can be rotated to move the nick out of the way. Very reliable even when damaged!

    This is a terrific professional tool for the professional door hanger. And it works with any router that has a 1/2" mortising bit and 5/8" template guide. It even works for 5/8" radius hinges with a 1 1/4" mortising bit and 1 3/8" template guide. A homeowner would not need this tool, and it is not efficient for hanging just 1 door.

    5-0 out of 5 stars This Bosch kit solves all of the problems
    If you have ever hassled with trying to install hinges on a non pre-hung door, you are familiar with the challenge. Figuring out the proper layout of the hinges on the door. Trying to take a single templet and align it perfectly straight up in order to prevent an off angle hinge. Trying to mount that templet at exactly the correct amount of depth to get a uniform edge. Routing without a glitch, or even moreso hand scribing an edge, then chiseling a flat base. Even if all of that goes perfectly, then we have the challenge of transferring those settings to the jamb in order to hang the door. How do we close the door on the hinge and scribe out the edge of the hinge onto the jamb. Opening the jamb and laying the hinges on it kinda works, but then how do you keep the distance correct for the clearance of let's say 1/8 inch at the top of the door. In plain words using the door with the hinges mounted is a rough way of getting the job done.
    What Bosch does with this kit, is give you three adjustable for hinge size templates for routing, that are attached, and once again adjustable. You can preset the distance between the hinges, and be sure that the templates will be perfectly upright. No off angles, which is all too often the case without this kit. Once you attach the entire apparatus, with the built in pins you rout away. Then you remove the kit from the door, attach it to the hinge jamb and rout away.
    This is an all metal kit that should give you years of service.

    So why not just buy pre-hung doors and not bother to deal with it? The problem is that in order to trim the jamb to the thickness of the wall, you have to remove it from the door, disassemble it, then run it through the table saw, then reattach it. Or, in the event of a wall thicker than the pre-hung jamb, having to live with a seam, or a very large molding to cover it. With this kit, you can buy doors that are not pre-hung, and buy jamb boards that are wider than the jamb, trim them to size on your saw, then assemble for installation. Additionally you might want to create your jamb out of something other than the standard pine.
    My hat is off to the Bosch engineers for designing this one. A complicated job made simple. Highly recommended. This tool falls in the category of most favored tools. It solves all of the problems. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Well-executed design combined with solid, reliable performance make this Bosch belt sander a tool with noticeable performance advantages. The Bosch features a magnesium-and-plastic housing that's lightweight yet durable. The tool is nicely balanced, comfortable, and easy to operate--important features in a tool that's often used for long periods of time for removing large amounts of stock. The Bosch comes with a cast-aluminum platen--so there's none of the warping that affects stamped-steel platens--and it sands perfectly flat right out of the box. Like many of the sanders in this class, the motor on the 1274 is aligned with the belt edge to allow flush sanding into corners. The tool's only drawback is that visibility is limited when sanding into tight corners, but that's a small minus when weighed against all the pluses. The belt-changing system works well--we didn't suffer any spring pinches--and the tracking adjustment tracks the new belt quickly and keeps it in place. There's a variable-speed dial built right into the trigger switch, which makes adjusting the belt speed fast and convenient. Wood magazine tested 10 3-by-21-inch sanders and liked the 1274DVS best. We agree that it's a great tool. --Mark McDonald ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars dust bag a concern
    Got mine today but the dust bag is not the more expensive one available at local retailers or pictured on the box or in the manual. The box came with the factory seal but I am perplexed why a very cheap bag that doesn't carry the Bosch name made of flimsy fabric was in the box. It does match the amazon picture but not anything from the Bosch website or the box. It is not of the same quality as the dust bag on my Bosch random orbit sander.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Decent sander
    I bought this sander after trying the Dewalt and having it die in about 15min of work.After researching other sanders, I discovered B&D owns Porter-Cable and Delta, along with Dewalt. Since every B&D tool I have ever purchased failed, I amhesitant to give B&D my money.

    I chose the Bosch after comparing with its twin, the Ryobi BE321. The sander is well balanced and comfortable in your hands.It took a little getting used the "brick" design, but The egornomics are great.It has the power to get the job done. The dust colletion is average.Afterall, it is a belt sander!

    I would recommend this sander to anyone.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Well built and easy to use
    This is an excellent tool that fits comfortably in your hand.It removes material efficiently and is easy to control.The belt tracking system works better than any other I've used.Since it is light weight (for a belt sander), it won't wear you out like most other units.The inline design allows you to easily get into tight spaces and unlike many sanders, the dust collection system really works. It's made in Switzerland and the resulting quality is obvious. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Bosch's Brute Tough line of cordless drill/drivers are designed and built from the inside out to offer the most power and durability possible. At the heart of this drill is a Bosch-built unibody power train that contains the motor, gearbox, and clutch in one contiguous unit for durability and the best alignment possible. The two-speed gearbox has large all-metal gears for strength, and offers a whopping 500 inch-pounds of torque in high-torque mode and up to 1,300 rpm in high-speed mode. The 18-volt motor has built-in overload protection and externally replaceable brushes to help extend its life. The drill also has a steel-reinforced collar to protect it in the event that it's dropped on the chuck. While we don't recommend dropping your tools off one-story buildings, Bosch claims this one can stand the abuse and keep working. The final layer of protection for the drill is its flexible ABS/Nylon-blend Duracell housing that protects the insides without cracking or shattering on impact.The drill also features a a strong reliable grip and a 1/2-inch ratcheting chuck with carbide teeth for one-handed bit changes. This model comes with two batteries, a one-hour charger, a bit holder, a snap hook, and a carrying case. --Brian Trinen ... Read more

    2-0 out of 5 stars WHY NI-CAD BATTERIES --cheaper????
    After using a Panasonic (long story) for 2 years, I would NEVER ever buy a tool w/ NiCads!Why?the run time!NiMH batteries are SO FAR superior in this regard!They are lighter, have no 'memory' effect and run far, far longer than the ancient Nicad technology.

    I will never go back to nicads.And let's not forget the environment I'm no treehugger, but -- Cadmium is a deadly poison.

    Bosch cheaped out on these batteries!

    2-0 out of 5 stars Not brute tough, not even wife tough!!
    I have owned this drill for less than a year in a home use setting.My wife was using it to hang pictures in a plaster wall when it "stripped out", i. e. the motor was turning but not the chuck.I purchased this drill because it sounded like the components were not likely to fail in a light duty application.Oh well...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding cordless drill
    The very first thing I did with my new 18v Bosch drill was to drop it 6' onto a concrete floor.Didn't seem to affect it.Review:

    1.The chuck is an engineering marvel -- has the be THE best designed drill chuck on the planet.You can remove and insert a bit, and tighten it, in practically no time at all - with only one hand on the chuck.I.e., hold the tool with your left hand (or left foot!) and unscrew the chuck with your right hand (about ½ turn is all it takes).Insert the new bit and tighten the chuck.(You can actually perform this operation with just one hand; just laying the drill on a flat surface or holding it between your legs - in fact, this may be the only drill that could be used by a one-armed person.)Many keyless drills have dual-ring chucks, the ones that require two hands to work.When the bit slips, I find those chuck designs to be nearly impossible to get REALLY tight.Tight is no problem for this tool.I also own a DeWalt ½" electric drill that requires you to hold a button down to tighten/loosen the chuck. That works OK, but on this Bosch drill, the drive shaft locks when the motor is off, so that button isn't necessary.It really is ingenious.

    2.Massive torque.If you're used to a 14.4v drill or even other 18v models, keep your eye on screws you're driving.This beast keeps driving until I release the trigger.I've also snapped a couple of screws due to the high torque this tool has, when the clutch setting was on maximum torque.

    3.Speed.Low speed is fine, and high speed (1300 rpm) is OK most of the time - but, occasionally, I'd like it to be a tad faster.One of the ways Bosch gets all that torque is through lower RPMs.Besides, for the types of large hole cuts and other things owners would be doing with a tool this powerful, the 1300 rpm maximum does make sense.The trigger's control of speed is flawless.

    4.Battery run-time.These batteries last an incredibly long time before needing a recharge.

    5.Balance, comfort, and other ergonomics are perfect, at least for me (I have big hands).Very comfortable handle - no sharp places.It's not uncommon for me to dislike tools because of ill-conceived handles, triggers that pinch your finger, sharp corners, too small, etc.This tool feels just right in my hand.It also comes with a quick-detach hook for attaching a strap or hook - nice touch.

    6.Weight.Other than price, the only downside to this tool is, it is heavier and slightly larger than 12v or 14.4v drills - i.e., it's a little too heavy for my wife to use comfortably.(Of course, it's much more powerful, holds ½" bits, battery run-time is better, and it has that ingenious chuck.)In any case, I usually keep two cordless drills handy on jobs:this one, and a lighter/smaller (12v or 14.4v) drill for more delicate/small-hole drilling, or when working overhead extensively.The other reason for having two tools, in spite of how incredibly easy it is to change bits on the Bosch, is, to avoid having to change bits/drills as often.

    7.The gears are made of steel.That's important to me because my Porter Cable 14.4v drill stripped it's weak nylon gears after a couple of years, long before the batteries wore out.P/C doesn't sell just that $3 gear of course - you had to buy an enter "gear box", as they call it.$60. Heck with that.No more P/C plastic-geared drills for me.

    8.Nice plastic case, with a mini-case for bits.Everything fits, and it even has decent metal clasps.Well done.

    9.Has the best warranty I've seen for such tools (and the battery), but somehow I doubt if I'll ever need it.

    In summary, if it's not too heavy for you to use comfortably, you'll not find a better cordless drill. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    This dual-bevel sliding compound miter saw from Bosch offers as much capacity as possible combined with a host of features that make it easy to work with. It miters 52 degrees to the left and 60 to the right, and it bevels from 0 to 47 degrees in either direction. We really like the front-bevel lock lever on this saw, which eliminates the need to reach around to the back to make bevel changes. The base is 25-1/2 inches long and has sliding extensions on each side that bring the total length up to 40 inches. There's a 4-1/2-by-11-3/4-inch-long sliding fence on each side that allows for cutting crown molding up to 6 inches vertically or up to 10-1/4-inch crown molding laid flat. The saw also has the capacity to cut up to 4-by-12-inch stock at 90 degrees, 4-by-8-1/2-inch stock ata 45-degree miter, and 2-3/4-by-8-1/2-inch stock at a 45-degree miter and a 45-degree left bevel. The four-position rotating handle is another great innovation on this saw. Some people prefer a horizontal handle and others like a vertical or diagonal handle, so Bosch designed this saw to work for everyone. They've also made the lock-off and release buttons ambidextrous out of consideration for lefties. The saw performs as smoothly and accurately as you would expect from a top-of-the-line Bosch tool and it's built to stand up to tough job site conditions. --Brian Trinen ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars Great features, one major flaw.
    Unbelievable! The saw cuts beautifully and everything about it is well designed except for the fact that the detents that are cast into the base are not accurate relative to 0 degrees. When I calibrate 0 degrees accurately and swing the saw table clockwise to the 45 degree detent, it cuts 45.1 degrees. Not bad. When I swing the table CCW to 45 degrees, it cuts 45.4 degrees. There is absolutely no adjustment for the position of the detent! Okay for framing but not finish work. Makes fitting 8" crown a challenge. I know I can simply override the detents but feel strongly that the priciest of 12 sliders should have accurate detents.

    FWIW, the 4412 is made in Taiwan. I will reserve judgement pending the resolution of this problem with Bosch.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Blade wobble problem is gone
    This is bosch's specific response to those with blade wobble problems. I bought my saw 3 weeks ago and it does not have any blade wobble.

    "Dear Tyson,

    Thank you for writing!

    The blade wobble problem which affected approximately 1% of all units manufactured was corrected July, 2003.  Consequently any saws that you purchase today do not experience this problem.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Swiss Make Great Knives, and Jig Saw Blades
    On the side of these blades is imprinted "Bosch" and "Swiss Made" (for Bosch) These blades are scary sharp. The instructions tell you to wear gloves when installing them. My ego told me different, so I skipped the gloves. One of the blades touched, or should I say just glanced lightly against my finger, and my skin immediately created a fine shred. Oops. Now I wear gloves. These things are definitely sharp. I don't have another blade in any category that are as sharp as these. Exercise caution when using them. Of course this makes for a great jig saw blade. They effortlessly go through material. With three different levels of coarseness, you can meet any task. The 30 pack has ten of each, coarse, medium and fine.
    With a 4x8 leftover edge of a piece of plywood as my guide, I used the jig saw to cut an edge on a piece of MDF. It was so smooth and even, that I only touched it lightly with a sanding block and 120 grit to produce a factory edge. That is saying something for a jig saw.
    I am using these on a Bosch jig saw, that I can not say enough about. These blades work well, I understand, on any jig saw that takes the T-blade style.
    You can't beat the price. Everything is cheaper by the dozen. The 30 pack enables you to buy a blade that is way sharper and resilient than any other jig saw blade I have ever used, and at a price that can't be beat as well.
    I bought the Bosch metal cutting blades for the jig saw as well. Jig saw blades are something that needs to be renewed due to the unusual material and positions we put them through, so you might as well buy a pack and save the money. Just be sure and wear some gloves when changing them, or concentrate on only touching the back edge.

    10 each of fine, medium and rough cuts.All great quality and only a buck each!You can't go wrong.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Talk about BANG for your buck!
    I purchased these when I bought my Milwaukee sabre saw..they're terrific! When you think that it's a buck a blade there is no way that you can go wrong! I keep looking at the pack & thinking I should order more because I can't believe the price I got them at. I've cut everything from rough wood to laminates with them and can't say enough about them. ... Read more

    I am a former Union laborer, and I have done some demo in my day. This hammer while easy to use is ah, shall we say gutless, I mean this thing has no balls. If you only have a little bit to do, or your inside, it is better then a electric demo hammer, but do not evenbegin to think that this thing packs the same punch as a pneumatic hammer. But it is easier to use and much better inside for light work

    5-0 out of 5 stars Not that scary!
    Recently, I have to do a tought plumbing job. I was worried if I was going to be able to jack-hammered a 4 inch concrete floor. We went to a tool rental place and got the Bosch Brute Hammer. In the beginning I thought "is going to be a scary kind of job". But I was wrong. In a few hours I was able to complete the whole job. The vibration was not bad after all. It is not a tool that I need on a daily basis, but is was a good help for me that day. Also, the hand truck was great with all the tools orderly in place.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Almost Perfect!
    The other reviews have the count of blades correct . . . Tool Crib are you listening . . . put it in the main description!!
    My only complaint is that these ship in a ziplock back with no padding to protect the blades, they are not carded like the 3, 4 and 5 packs. So, by the time they get to you will have rubbed together enough to have lost a little of their paint, and thus you may have trouble for example telling the T118A from the T118B. I'm also afraid of what this may have done to the blade tips themselves . . but can see no problems.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Swiss Make Great Knives, and Jig Saw Blades
    This is a review I wrote for the 30 pack of woodworking blades. Since it applies as well to the assorted 30 pack for metal and woodworking, I thought I would submit it as well. Here it is:
    On the side of these blades is imprinted "Bosch" and "Swiss Made" (for Bosch) These blades are scary sharp. The instructions tell you to wear gloves when installing them. My ego told me different, so I skipped the gloves. One of the blades touched, or should I say just glanced lightly against my finger, and my skin immediately created a fine shred. Oops. Now I wear gloves. These things are definitely sharp. I don't have another blade in any category that are as sharp as these. Exercise caution when using them. Of course this makes for a great jig saw blade. They effortlessly go through material. With three different levels of coarseness, you can meet any task. The 30 pack has ten of each, coarse, medium and fine. The assorted pack gives you metal and woodworking blades. See item description.

    Editorial Review

    This well-designed planer offers fast stock removal and the smoothest finish--exactly what we expected from Bosch. The powerful 6.5 amp motor runs the versatile two-blade Woodrazor system at 16,500 rpm with a protective shield that covers the section of blade that's not in use. The fence itself deserves applause--bevels are accurate and easy to adjust. We love the chip ejection as well. Too many times, we've tried tools with an exhaust system that might as well not be there, but this one actually moves the removed stock and it's multidirectional! Deep cuts are possible in just one pass without bogging or chatter. There's even a spring-loaded park rest stand that protects blade and workpiece. The saw is a special shape that allows easy start-up in the middle of a workpiece. Accidental starts are a thing of the past because of the lock-off release button. Bosch thought of everything; we're impressed. --Kris Jensen-Van Heste ... Read more

    2-0 out of 5 stars Needs a trigger lock, not a trigger safety.
    Alot of tools these days have trigger saftey guards, especially cordless tools. While this may seem safe for your average homeowner, 90% of the guys on my crew always swear at them. Why? Because they want the dexterity for controling the cut, many of which are made in precarious unleveraged positions.Sound dangerous...well thats building. I'm not saying take your blade guard off and install a trigger lock on your skillsaw; but when I light up a planer, I like to lock it on and tune..less trigger fatigue...ask any one with framers elbow. I have a Hitachi F30A, two Makita 1900Bs and a Ryobi L1121, all have trigger locks and when its time to rock n roll andstraight edge, the crew leaves the Bosch in the box.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Recommended without reservation
    I am a home builder and after considering where my time and energy was leaking, I decided to pick up a planer. Went with the Bosch model because of the brand and because of the exhaust port. As you read in other reviews, planers produce wood snow faster than any other tool by far. My anticipated application was smoothing subflooring and punishing misbehaving wall studs. Turns out there are a lot more places where a quick judicial touch will plumb, square and level framing and cabinetry, thereby boosting overall work quality and satifaction. In other words, it makes life on the site easier all the way around.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Bosch very helpful to consumers even on minor issues
    After reading all the reviews here, I bought the 1594K planer expecting nothing but the best.I was sold by the chip eject direction feature, power, smoothness, and my previous positive experiences with Bosch tools.To me the mis-aligned shoes mentioned elsewhere seemed like a short-term QC problem that had been resolved, judging by all the positive reveiws.

    I was concerned when I received my new planer and saw machining marks that were less than confidence-inspiring.The machining marks on about 30% of one side were obviously not machined the same way as the rest of the sole plate.It looked like the tail end of the cutting tool was doing the work in that area, as the tool marks were arcing in the opposite direction.So I began to doubt the rear sole plate was flat.

    I contacted Bosch via e-mail on this matter.They responded quickly, and were extremely helpful.They sent me a new rear sole plate and forwarded my comments to a senior technical advisor to look into the matter.They also requested digital pictures (that I offered in my e-mail) to help them investigate the matter further.

    After looking at the tool more closely, the rear sole plate WAS ACTUALLY FLAT and fully functional.So, this issue turned out to be nothing more than a cosmetic complaint, but Bosch listened to my concerns and did everything in their power to make me happy.Customer service this good is rare, and I applaud Bosch on their efforts.

    Another thing I'd like to mention is that the planer kit comes with a chip bag, not the vacuum hose adapter.This typo appears in more than one place, but it's a fact that you get the chip bag instead of the VAC002 hose attachment.

    And, yes, the planer works great too.I'll let the other reviews speak to that! ... Read more

    Do yourself a favor, invest in this hammer, you will be glad you did! It is designed and built to last. The BEST of the BEST!Performance is outstanding.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Very effective when used correctly
    I purchased this unit after test-renting a Bosch 11316 Demolition Hammer in order to dig 25 very deep tree holes in the hard, California clay soil where I live.The 11316 was massive overkill for the job (I used it on 30-40% power all day), and often sunk deep into the cement-hard soil just under its own weight!

    The 11241 is a fantastic tool - it digs with a clay spade at a moderate pace, dramatically reducing workload for terraforming (moving a lot of dirt, as I did with a retaining wall), and for trenching, digging, and moderate-duty demolition.

    BEWARE - it takes 3-4 hours of use before it really *works*.Out of the box, brand new, you will swear this thing is broken.Read the manual - it vaguely refers to a 5 hour break-in period.Trust me, not much happens for the first 2 hours - I recommend finding drilling applications.

    So far, I've trenched, drilled holes in concrete, done terraforming, and some serious digging for tree planting and
    other gardening tasks.The weight of this unit is ideal for the application, and the power is just sufficient.(5 stars would be reserved for a bit more power - it takes a while to get through some applications where old roots are in the way - the 11316 cut through them like a hot knife through butter).

    I've yet to try this unit on concrete - I suspect it will do a credible job, but not great, due to its moderate power output.

    I have the clay spade, acaling chisel, and two bull points of different lengths.All work very well.

    One superior aspect of this unit over the 11316 monster - the vibration isolation is really nice in the handle.My wrists can tolerate 2-3 hours/day of this work, where 2 hours of the 11316 caused me a week or so of serious aching.

    Editorial Review

    What the Bosch 12-inch compound miter saw may lack inpopularity compared to some of its competitors, it makes up for inquality design and construction. The saw has a heavy-duty 26-inch steeltable that extends to 29 inches, and a tall sliding fence for workingwith crown molding and other large stock. While this isn't the lightest12-inch saw available, at only 43 pounds it's still plenty portable,and comes with a cushioned top handle for easy carrying to and from thetruck. Considering how solid and stable this tool is, and the amount ofmetal making up the base and table, we were actually surprised to findthat it weighs as little as it does. The 15 amp motor on this saw, intypical Bosch fashion, runs remarkably smooth and relatively quiet. Theelectric brake stops the blade quickly every time. The miter gauge onthis saw is engraved, so if the paint wears off you won't lose themarkings or need to replace the saw. This is a great feature, and theBosch saw is one of only a couple of saws on the market that includesit. It also features nine miter detents that can be easily overriddenfor micro adjustments, and we had no problem getting the table to lockin tight at a half degree off the detent.

    The saw has a comfortable horizontal D-handle, with a nice wide triggerand a safety switch inset in the handle right where your thumb canreach it. This saw offers all the accuracy and cutting capacity ofother 12 inchers in a design that's easy and comfortable to use. Bestof all, it comes with the Bosch reputation for solid engineering andsmooth performance. The saw comes with a quick-action clamp, adirectional dust chute, a dust bag, a 40-tooth carbide blade, andwrenches for adjusting the fence and changing the blade. --BrianTrinen ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Saw fo the Money
    I just finished using my new Bosh 12" miter saw to build a roof over and screen my 16' X 20' deck.It did a wonderful job of cutting right through 4 X 4 treated lumber, as well as the 2 X 6 treated boards stacked 2 high.I would recommend this saw to anyone with no resoultions.It is a great buy and works just as well as my neighbor's higher priced DeWalt saw.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Features!!
    I'm the one who posted the pics of this saw in my workshop and I've read all of the reviews. A couple of things that haven't been mentioned about this saw:

    The detent override is AWESOME. Sometimes you need that extra 1/2-1 degree to make your angles nice and tight. The detent override allows you to make this adjustment without the saw wanting to pop back into the pre-set angle that your closest to.

    The second safety switch for left hand cutting...holy crap, I use it more than I thought I would (and I'm right handed). When you're forced to cut smaller pieces at angles left of center...well, I don't know about you, but I like my fingers. With this saw, you hold the wood with your right hand and pull the blade down easily with your left hand, safely. There is a second safety switch positioned on the handle that is easily pressed by using your left thumb....now that's smart engineering.

    I think you'll find that anything you order through the mail has a potential of getting damaged or having defects. So, if you're too lazy to adjust the saw or send it back for a new one because of a factory defect, then drive your butt to the closest tool store (where they recieved it by mail) and pay the higher price.Your choice.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Not So Nice
    I purchased over $2,500.00 in tools for my Construction Co. a couple of months ago and of all the tools I purchased this one disappointed most. i guess i should have known that a drill with a 6.9 amp motor should have dedicated use, not try to be a "jack of all trades". The latter half of the saying applied to this drill--- Master of None! Too little power and the drill can't handle any kind of low RPM high friction/ torque work. It starts to smoke. I love Bosch and MOST of their products, this one is trying to wear too many hats for me--- 3 Stars.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Great Tool!!
    I own a small home improvement/remodeling company, I have used this for some small demo jobs like removing ceramic tile with a 1.5" chisel it has plenty of power and works great, fit/ finish is excellent and the case has plenty of room for all my bit's I highly recommend it!!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Bosch 11224VSRK
    I bought the 11224VSR to replace my old 11212VSR, which I have owned for about ten years. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the new 11224 is made in Germany, especially since these days so many power tool manufactures are shifting operations to Mexico, China and Taiwan. Even the free promotional SDS-Plus bit set that was included with the kit when I bought it is German made.
    The 6.9 Amp motor and stop-rotation feature make the 11224 excellent for light chipping and scaling with 3/4"or 1-1/2"wide chisels respectively. It is reversible, so it is ideal for installing and removing light to medium duty small masonry fasteners. The 7/8" solid bit capacity gives it the ability to make a hole in concrete large enough for pass 1/2" EMT through. With the available, impact rated 1/2" locking geared chuck adapter, you can use the tool for drilling in wood or metal in the rotation only setting or with standard straight shank percussion masonry bits in the hammer/rotation mode. The adapter is not something that I use all the time but was glad to have had it on several occasions because it kept me from having to stop what I was doing and run out to the truck to grab a regular 1/2" drill just to make a couple of holes in a metal enclosure or 2X floor joist.
    I also use it with the 1-1/8" and larger Bosch thin-wall core bits with an 11-7/8" shank for drilling through ceramic, granite and marble tile floors and poured concrete walls to run conduit and pipe. The Bosch thin-wall core bits are sometimes hard to find locally and are also expensive, but are well worth it because they make very clean holes and substantially increase the capacity of this small hammer.
    In addition, my larger Bosch 1-1/2" spline-drive hammer with a standard heavy-wall core bit just hits to hard and will almost always damage ceramic or expensive granite and marble tiled floors.
    The only thing I don't care for is the plastic storage case that comes with the 11224 hammer. It is flimsy and just lets everything inside fly around.
    It doesn't have the sliding tray for smaller bits up to 6" and separate compartment for longer bits and attachments or the secure latches of the superb metal case made by Merriam Manufacturing that came with my older Bosch 11212. Plastic cases have do their merits and are sometimes superior to metal cases for storage of some power tools but in my opinion, they are generally not a good idea for most rotary hammers, which usually require many different sizes and lengths of bits, attachments and boxes of fasteners to be used and stored with them.
    Other than that one complaint, I feel that the 11224 is easily the best and most versatile 7/8" SDS rotary hammer on the market and would have no problem recommending it to anyone. ... Read more

    Bosch’s two-speed gearbox lets you match speed and torque to the job at hand. A dual-function control lets you switch quickly and easily from rotation to hammer action, and a mounted depth gauge is a nice touch other makers ought to adopt. The auxiliary handle attaches easily and rotates a full 360 degrees to let you work at any angle. The keyed chuck accepts up to ½-inch bits, and at 5 pounds, it’s far from the heaviest drill of its caliber. The soft grip and comfortable trigger with lock-on button further relieve hand strain. The case will withstand all kinds of jobsite abuse. You can’t beat Bosch.--Kris Jensen-Van Heste ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Good, solid, quality hammer drill
    I used this Bosch hammer drill to make about 50- 3/8 inch diameter holes in a concrete floor slab, and 50 holes in brick and mortar, it worked great. The drill had a good amount of weight and power. I even used it to drill a 1" diameter hole (the bit fit a 1/2 in. diameter chuck) in a brick wall it was no problem after drilling a 3/8 in. pilot hole. I debated buying a lighter weight drill but would not recommend anything lighter for drilling in concrete. I thought the case was great (unlike other reviews) and the depth gage seemed sufficient although I didn't use it. The one I have is a -factory reconditioned- but was totally new and never used. Bosch is high quality and I expect this drill to last for many years. I would also recommend the Bosch hammer drill bits instead of the yellow brand. I used both and the difference was clear, you get what you pay for.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Good drill, but ..
    This is a very capable, high-quality tool.I bought it to bore through brick/wood and it did very well.

    However, the case is cheap.It looks like you can close/open it 4-5 times and it will be done.And, the plastic depth guage broke right away.If you don't care about the depth gauge or case, then this is very good value for you.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect for DIYer
    This is perfect for the DIYer.Concrete isn't a problem and drilling through block is no match.I've had to drill through wet wood that bound my "yellow" drill, but it couldn't stop the Bosch.Like everything else Bosch makes, this is one excellent piece of equipment that will last a long, long time.I would have liked a metal measure stick so that it would last as long as the drill, but that's minor. ...

    4-0 out of 5 stars Easy-to-use, finishing tool
    I do residential construction and was looking for equipment that can shape concrete foundations, piers and slabs. Although I already have a 4.5in angle grinder with a diamond cup, I was searching for something that would leave a smoother, flatter surface and would not put out clouds of harmful annoying dust.The Bosch 1773AK Concrete Surfacing Grinder is well designed and made from quality materials. It requires no skill to use. In fact, its boring. Just set it on top of a foundation wall or slab, apply a little pressure and drag it along at about 1/4in per second.The surface grinder has a dust removal port that mostly eliminates the dust clouds. An adapter (included) brings the diameter up to 1-1/4in and then another one on the vacuum hose (not included) allows connection to the 2-1/2in port on a Ridgid shop vac.Although the Bosch surface grinder functions correctly and does remove dust, I would call it strictly a surfacing tool rather than a grinder. Ironically, the equipment works best on surfaces that are already flat. This expensive, specialized tool leaves a flat, finished surface of exposed aggregate. It is for this specific task and does not replace the angle grinder. If I have to remove chunks, round corners or shape the material down to a somewhat flat surface, I go back to the angle grinder. ... Read more

    20. Bosch 1276DVS 4" x 24" Dustless Variable Speed Belt Sander

    Editorial Review

    The Bosch 1276DVS offers solid, reliable performance plus a few nifty extras, making it an easy-to-use sander that's serious about removing material. Bosch designers listened to customer feedback and developed a front handle that adjusts. Deep detents mean the handle snaps securely into place, giving it a burly feel and stability in any of the six positions. That, combined with nice balance and weight, minimizes user fatigue. Like many of the sanders in this class, the motor is aligned with the belt edge to make flush sanding possible; however, as with other Bosch belt sanders, visibility is somewhat limited once the sander gets into corners.

    The belt-changing system works well--we didn't suffer any spring pinches--and the belt tracking adjustment tracks the new belt quickly and keeps it in place. The 1276 gets its "dustless" name from the adjustable shoot that accommodates nonwoven belts up to 8 mm thick. Belt sanders are all about removing stock in a hurry, and the larger the area of sandpaper in contact with material, the faster material is removed. To achieve a perfect finish, it's important that the sander sand flat. The platen on the 1276 is the cork-and-steel type, not as efficient as cast aluminum, but a good, solid performance setup. Plus, the 1276 offers an optional graphite platen--a great high-performance extra. There are a few other accessories available and we liked the sanding stand, which holds the tool in an inverted position for fine finish applications, and the machined-aluminum sanding frame that keeps the sander up off material, reducing pressure on the belt and making smooth finishes easier. By offering these accessories, Bosch makes this already fine tool versatile to boot. --Mark McDonald ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars A Monster in Your Hands
    If you are planning to own one, be sure to check your physical strength. You'll needstrong arms and a good rest to handle this baby, in fact, it's a monster.It weighs a ton, and has power that can hurt your arms for the rest of the day.What I like about this machine is it's power with variable speeds, the ease of the belt change and adjusting.Also the adjustable left-front handle makes it more comfortable.The weight of the machine keeps stabilizing the operation, but the down side is you can't really use it for over your head job.If I need to do that, I would grab a lighter one.One real draw back of the design is the dust bag location.It is placed on the wrong side! and it might get in your way if you are doing a critical sanding.My conclusion, It'a a nice, powerful horse at a reasonable price. It would be even nicer if the carrying case is provided. Thank You Bosch.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Worked great for a bit!
    I bought this unit to replace a Black and Decker Sand Cat that had destroyed the front belt roller bearing.The unit has tremendous power.The bad part is that it will not sand flushto a wall.Then after using it about 4 times, it just plain quit.I'm lucky enough to have the service center within 5 miles of my house and the power switch was replaced under warranty.Otherwise the sander will take on anything and the belt rollers have decent bearings. ...
