Re: New Bosch Tools


SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO GLAD I returned the makita....when that sucker is for sale I will be owning one...

This is one the reasons I like Bosch...they usally arn't the first to come out with something but when it comes out it takes what is out there and make it better....

Re: New Bosch Tools


yup, bosch just makes it better, where as dewalt claims it...... i look forward to seeing the router, as for the mitre saw it would be something id have to try out for a day as to if i like it

i was looking at the new makita scms, it looks like a hyrbid of the best of the old makita and the current bosch. only thing was when playing around with the features the display model jammed up and i couldnt reset it to 0 on the bevel.....

Re: New Bosch Tools


The new Makita 12" has 15" of cross cut...sorry Bosch. I'll take the Makita from the first glance at this new Bosch. I would like to see a shootout once it is released.

Re: New Bosch Tools


Interesting. I want to know what the vertical base/nested crown capacity is. Thats the most important part if you ask me.

Re: New Bosch Tools


What the heck is up with the handle position on that saw?

It looks awkward and dangerous. Even the blade guard looks sketchy.

And the LBOXX is lame.

Re: New Bosch Tools


Big deal on the router video, festool's of 2200 (2200 watts) won't even move slinging a 3 1/2" bit with a 1/2" shank.

About time someone put some care into their tool's.

It looks like it will be large with the way the blade housing is cut out.

The handle position looks the same as with the current Bosch sliders and the guard looks similar to makita.

Re: New Bosch Tools


I'm surprised they moved away from sliders! The are pretty proven and you have very minimal parts to wear (unlike the Bosch axial arm) so you get good accuracy over the life of the tool. The Bosch looks a little over complicated and how well that arm will wear is anyones guess. But from what i can see you have at least 12 areas for wear on the joints.

I would say it is pretty damn close in relation to the blade....

I was too when I first thought about it...but then I also thought that in order to keep progress moving forward you have to try new things.... I am going to go with there will be less deflection with the arms and of all the different miter saws i have used, new and old, I havn't met one yet that had a worn out pivot for raising and lowering the head...

Its new, its got ALOT of nice features that you simply can't find on other saws...it could suck, but I doubt it. I am gonna try it. I have yet to meet one bosch tool that I would say sucked...

@warner

The LBOXX is lame?

I thought systainers were the best thing since sliced bread. Bosch just started making the same thing for their own products. Maybe they have done things they think are improvements. Wouldn't it be a good thing if other manufacturers put their tools in proper boxes?

Re: New Bosch Tools


The problem I see with the LBOXX is that it has little protrusions on the top sides where the boxes lock together. It's not flat like the Systainers. I do like the idea of having handles on both the top and front.

Re: New Bosch Tools


I really like the innovation Bosch is showing.

I am a big fan of the systainers, but the LBOXX looks like it might be a little easier to stack and separate.

FYI: You can buy the L-Boxx directly from Sortimo, but the addition of the handle in the front is a Bosch exclusive for now. Also the front handle is only for the smaller boxes. I don't see why it would be needed on the larger boxes anyways.

Re: New Bosch Tools


i would let the miter saw be out in the real world for a year or more before sinking 700 bucks into it. i'd rather save up and get a 10 inch kapex and get a better saw. i already have a 12 inch dewalt and i love it but I really need a 10 inch also.

i don't have many bosch tools. i am phasing out all other cordless tools and sticking with makita lithium ions as tools wear out. i still have a cordless dewalt circ saw, and sawsall, but I hate the dewalt 18 volt regular batteries. they suck.

Re: New Bosch Tools


My only issue with the LBOXX is that it will probably be impossible to find any sort of accessories here for it.

I do wish all tool manufacturers would go with some sort of standard tool case, such as a systainer or even god forbid a LBOXX.
