Bosch DXS2124 – The SpeedClean of Bits

Concrete is strong and it pretty much lasts forever, well until Bosch comes along.  Now I know this isn’t true, but for some reason I always have this picture in my head.  I picture some concrete guy walking into Bosch and trying to convince them that he has the best concrete.  I just picture the Bosch people laughing and telling him to go back to the drawing board.  I know that is a weird picture, but Bosch owns concrete.  In fact, the only thing the concrete God is afraid of is Bosch.  All I can say is Bosch dominates...

Bosch T4B Gravity Stand – Just May Be The Best Stand You Will Ever Own

Okay, in the title I say it may be the best stand, but right now I am taking a stand and saying this is hands down the best stand on the market.  While there are a ton of miter saw stands to choose from, it only seems like there are two types, either junk or pretty good.  The Bosch is by far my favorite stand for a couple of reasons. I will go more into the stand, but the two main reasons this stand stands above the rest is first, it’s easy to open. When you open and close...

Bosch Blades

Okay, before we get started I wanted to make it clear Bosch didn’t pay us for this review, but we did get them to send us some blades.  Not long ago Dan was asking me what blades I used.  I told him it depends upon the tool. For table, miter or circular saws, I use Bosch or Diablo.  For Reciprocating saws I use either Milwaukee, Lenox or Bosch.  For Jig Saws and oscillating tools I pretty much stick with Bosch.  He ended up pointing out the obvious that I use Bosch as one of my major blades no matter...

Bosch Multi-Tool Blades 30% longer life

We can’t always agree on everything in this world, but one thing we can agree on is that Oscillating blades suck.  Well we shouldn’t say suck because they are great for a wide variety of projects, but they never last.  Also it’s not like they are cheap to replace.  Bosch is going to help take care of this little problem by increasing the life of oscillating blades, by 30%, over conventional blades. We all know heat kills blades.  With the new Bosch blades, the heat is spread out over the blade allowing it to cool quicker and not run as hot....

New Bosch Rotary Hammer Bits

Drilling holes has come a long way since back in the day when it took days to drill one hole.  You had some guy sitting there spinning a tool by hand to make a hole.  Nowadays you have hammer drills and rotary hammers.  The process that used to take hours, now takes seconds.  When you think about what’s happening, it’s actually pretty cool.  Not only is it cool, it’s amazing a bit doesn’t bust easier or get dull right away. Speaking of that Bosch introduced a new rotary hammer bit to make them even tougher.  The bits deliver more...

Bosch introduced a new pocket size reciprocating saw blade.  How many times have you tried to use a conventional 6″ blade to get into tight spots?  Right, too many times.  What happens?  Well after the swearing and a little banging stuff up and vibration to your hand, you finally cut through the wood or pipe.  Well Bosch listened to the end user and came out with the pocket size blade, a 4″ blade.  This is a perfect size especially when combined with a compact hand held saw.  Bosch uses a 2×2 tooth geometry and a thin kerf for faster...

Bosch SB5013P Rapid Feed Spade Drill Bit Review

This review is for the Bosch SB5013P Rapid Feed Spade Drill Bit set.  This set includes 13 spade drill bits with a 1/4″ shank.  As you can see from the pictures they are all stored in a nice Nylon case that closes with a Velcro strap.  This set comes with the following sizes – 1/4″, 3/8″, 1/2″, 9/16″, 5/8″, 11/16″, 3/4″, 7/8″, 1″, 1-1/8″, 1-1/4″, 1-3/8″, 1-1/2″. According to Bosch their feed bit system leaves cleaner, smoother holes with reduced splintering.  One key advantage is, it supposed to leave less break out material on the back of the hole than traditional bits.  The reason is Bosch has cutting spurs on the edge that score the material before the cutting edge removes the material and this is what produces a cleaner hole. For our review we ran the Bosch speed bits against a tradition bit to see which provided a faster, cleaner cut.  As you can see by the video below, the Bosch cruised through the material with no problem at all, in fact, it was faster than the traditional spade bit.  One item that did not show up on the video was we went through a piece of 3/4″ plywood with the Rapid feed and traditional bit.  On the back side of the plywood, after we cut through the wood, the Rapid feed produced a better, cleaner hole.  There was less splintering. We found...
