Track Saw Review of Bosch

I’ve possessed a Triton trail saw for three and years. During the time that I purchased it, it turned into a excellent improvement to my own shop. Considering having a course saw, I’ve abandoned using my table saw for wearing down sheet goods.

The trail saw is simpler, accurate and easier to work with. The Triton has been doing me great support and that also I enjoy this unit.

Bosch can be really actually just a relative latecomer into the trail saw market while inside the united states. But, it was preceded by its standing in Europe. The saw comes with a legacy produced from the favorite and Mafell track saws. Therefore my expectations were too high, because i have read a lot of sawguru reviews.

In the very first time I started the L-BOXX-4, ” I saw that the standard, fit and finish of this tool. I’d set the Bosch GKT13-225L against any different saw for contrast.

Once I matched the saw into its paths for the very first time, the Bosch saw’system’ impressed me with all the accuracy of the match involving your saw body and also the monitors. There clearly is not any play involving the saw and the trail.

I strove to detect some movement by bending the saw and found not one. This fit is expected to just two adjustment knobs in the base of this saw to make sure a fit between your aluminum extrusion and the saw. All these are flexible to carry any movement together with arms which close any difference at the fit.

In reality, you’re able to correct these knobs to become so tight you can’t proceed the saw over the trail. No matter that I located the sweet spot between a true fit and the simplicity of moving the saw over the trail.

Among those secrets to this success of an monitor saw may be your monitor . The paths were made by Bosch . Moreover, Bosch did a excellent job maximizing the track system’s usability features. By way of instance, the paths have end caps that are installed.

These help an mounted vacuum hose and also the cord slide within a cut should they get the close of the extrusion. Until I used the Bosch monitors, I forgot just exactly how often I had to discontinue as the corrugations of my vacuum hose or cable becoming captured on the trail endings of my saw.

Still another case of this superb track features could be that the connector that unites two monitors. My preceding saw (as well as accurate for Makita along with Festool monitors ) used connectors which put vertical pressure onto the t-slots so as to join two sections of course.

While that worked to put up the paths the straps didn’t help out with ensuring the monitors coordinated their cutting borders.
Put still yet another way I really could place the paths together and also have a small misalignment in the cutting strip.

The connector sets pressure at a horizontal mode onto the part of the extrusions to make certain the monitors align. Bosch does that orientation using four cams that the paths are aligned by two cams align the connector’s cap and each path.

I strove to misaligned the Bosch monitors so that since I countered the connector, the connector required out the inaccuracy all.

Ultimately, I truly liked the feature the trail connector doesn’t interfere whatsoever by means of quick clamps. I undergone lots of times at which I needed to alter up the track or down on the cut line as my monitor straps reach on the bottom connector.

There isn’t any way he jack and clamps will enter echo way. The clamps are absolutely free to visit the length of their paths.
The Bosch GKT13-225L trail saw abandoned me having a superb pair of impressions and that I had been excited about putting it to use.

The chance presented itself for me personally to make use of the Bosch trail saw onto a little job to make a few fittings to get a coming TBB 12 v head to head review. I had to split four sheets of AC plywood and CDX down, to bits that are smaller and that I used the Bosch GKT13-225L trail saw with this particular job.

To start, I started dividing the period of the four ×8 sheets in two and ripped them right down to only just a little less than 1 2 inch widths. The CDX sheets snapped and I started with all the one-piece sheet products and the cut borders had been a excellent cut.

Vacuum Set

A clutter outcome was produced by the combo of both of these Bosch items of equipment. After cutting all the sheets I didn’t detect a noticeable quantity of dust in my cutting table.

Unlike my course saw, Bosch provided a dust shroud in front end of the saw at which the sawdust would depart the material. I pulled on shroud to the cap of the cloth and saw no more dust. The saw includes a hose interface to permit an individual the control of this job of the hose that is attached.

An additional feature is the fact the nozzle has favorable stops over the selection of spinning to hold the nozzle position. After cutting eight sheets of plywood, then the picture indicates the degree of the sawdust I drifted by the very top of my workbench.

Once I was cutting on the H2H stuff I tried the saw cuts, First, the Bosch GKT 13-225L Track Saw gets got the power to cut through the further stuff. Additionally, Bosch designed the saw using a line that makes certain that an individual won’t have to be worried about where you should put the paths.

Even the Bosch monitors don’t have to be placed compared to the usual cut. My cuts have been flawless with variations or no marks from the top of cut.

Bosch supposed this saw to possess two alteration clamping screws in the end of the saw body. The modification scale reaches the front end of the saw. This scale indicates the alteration will vary between -1 level for undercuts to 4-7 degrees.

The detent which enables for increasing the scope will be a switch to scale that has to be pushed to participate the degrees. The detent which enables the -1 level cut is at a location on the back of the saw.

I needed to observe how true the 4-5 degree factory setting has been I checked it using an electronic digital protractor. The research was 45.1 amounts.

I liked with the Bosch quick release moves. These clamps have. There’s an increased degree of accuracy than your style clamp within my earlier trail saw. I enjoyed how Bosch provided a straightforward method to see by leaving a notch the way to set up the straps.

Without needing to go to the ending of the trail, bend and browse on by the conclusion of a course Like that I could fit the straps.

This focus on detail and endurance really is the reason why I am rather impressed with the Bosch trail saw.

Great design boosts an individual’s experience. Bosch did a excellent job designing the dip modification mechanism. The adjustment mechanism operates by moving the thickness stop and gloomy a knob.

What I enjoy about the Bosch design is that the scale is big enough to watch and see and also the fact that the fold is big enough to get thumbs. Both imperial and metric scales have been all on the saw body and also the alteration is at 1 millimeter increments.

When setting the thickness When these places do not lineup with the dimensions this enables a endurance.

There’s really just a reddish pointer to utilize in setting the thickness. This pointer could be flipped for 2 readings. Why? Because Bosch designed this saw should be employed with or with no trail. The GKT13-225L includes an tear fence which may be utilized for cutoffs without a track.

Bosch provided a straightforward method to correct for all those occasions once the saw will soon likely probably sit at the surface of these substances without a trail under the saw.

While this feature has its own benefits, an individual should assess the header is at the orientation and also the thickness of cut will likely probably differ.

Bosch did indicate the reddish dictionary with symbols to help the consumer in ensuring that the pointer is at the ideal orientation. However, I discovered the symbols.

Personally there was certainly a simple method. After the saw can be used with all the course, the thickness setting has to become greater to pay for the depth of this track.

Which usually means that the pointer has to signify that the smallest of its thickness settings. Since I shall mainly make use of the saw with all the trail (s), my regular operating position could be shown from the next picture.

My former course saw used to slowdown once I cut thick stuff or used it at a bevel setting. Not with the Bosch monitor saw. The Bosch saw gets got the power to float through the stuff I cut and also uses electronic equipment to alter the power consumption also to generate a constant blade speed under load.

When the consumer pushes the Bosch saw beyond its constraints, the person can’t hurt the engine since it’s an overload security that’ll cut right out and watch over the motor.

In Addition. The saw comes with a rate modification to change the rate for substances that are different.

The GRK 13-225L comes with a plastic bit to the base of the shoe which serves a exceptional function. In the event that you remove that fit, the Bosch saw will probably fit on the Makita/Triton/Festool paths!

While I must feel that a user would need to fit a cut strip to adapt saw kerf standing of this Bosch saw with a track. This feature that is synonymous is. This image shows the Bosch GRK13-225L Suited to some Festool track.

Bosch additionally sells an attachment named a Parallelanschlag for its GRK 13-225L. This apparatus (a.k.a. Parallel Guide) empowers an individual to split modest bits without a track. The user has an easy method to place the weapon and also create cuts at exactly the dimension.

This attachment creates the Bosch track saw into your table saw. I readily ripped a group of two” wide strips away of a sheet of plywood. In my dimensions, the concurrent manual attachment empowers cuts by the absolute the least 1 11/16″ to a max of 4 9/16″.

 

Perspective On-track Saws

Once I bought a course saw three decades before, I thought that I had been set with such a tool. And for 3 decades, I had been happy with my buy. I started to utilize my trail saw rather than my desk saw for cutting sheet goods. I use a trail saw to earn a cross cut if a table saw isn’t offered.

My encounter with all the Bosch GRK 13-225L has shifted my view track saws. The Bosch unit can be a measure upward in accuracy, endurance, power and features. It could be costly, however I feel the price is justified by that the standard. This really can be a nice addition to your own shop.
