New Low Vibration, High Quality Random Orbital Sander from Bosch

Bosch ROS65VCL-6 Review In spite of the fact that I use a ROS quite a bit, and have had a love/hate relationship with this tool category. I enjoy the benefits of fast, swirl free sanding, but the gyroscope effect from most of the units that I have used leaves me feeling beat up after a… Read more

Sander Reviews: My Five Favorite Sanders

I used to loath finish sanding because it was slow, super dusty, and just down right boring. These days I embrace the process, and rather enjoy the steps involved in creating a smooth surface, but I still find the work boring! The reason for this dramatic attitude change is due to technical advances in today’s… Read more

Bosch Slider That Isn’t A Slider

I love the capacity I get from a sliding miter saw. Where most miter saws cross cut to 6″ – 8″, a sliding saw can crosscut out to 12-1/2″ or so. Very useful in the shop. What I don’t like about sliding saws is their mongo footprint. You’ve got to have a lot of real… Read more

Bosch MR23EVS Router

The new MR23EVS routers from Bosch have some great features. Which one do I like best? The trigger on the handle. Sounds simple, doesn’t it? Here’s the deal. Multi-base routers offer a lot of versatility by providing one motor that fits into both a plunge and a fixed base. The problem with swapping the motor… Read more

Bosch PS 21 Pocket Driver

I really like the cordless, compact drivers, and they just keep getting better and better. Bosch has reworked their PS20 Pocket Driver, resulting in the new PS21, $145. Just in case compact wasn’t good enough for you, Bosch has made the PS21 even compacter (is that a word?). The overall length of the head is… Read more

Bosch 12v Max Multi-X Carpenter Kit Review

Bosch 12v Max Multi-X Carpenter Kit

Model PS50-2B Being the frugal woodworker I am, I had to ask myself if this Bosch Multi-X wasn’t one of those “Do I really need this” tools? To my surprise, I find it more useful than I imagined. It lives on my bench for quick access, and I use it to do many odd jobs… Read more

Bosch 14.4V Litheon Compact Tough Drill Driver

  Model 36614-02 I recently purchased one of Bosch Tool’s new 14.4-volt Litheon Drill Drivers, and I must say, it’s a fine tool. Cordless drill/drivers have really come a long way during my 30-plus year career. This drill beats the living daylights out of any vintage cordless drill/driver. It sells for around $180. For that… Read more


Never Again Lose Router Wrenches

Even with dust collection on my router table, it seemed I always had the same problem. I’d open the doors on the cabinet below the table and find a mountain of sawdust. The biggest problem was that somewhere below that sawdust were my router wrenches, collet, and other tools I needed for the router table…. Read more

They’re already convenient, and Bosch has made them even more convenient by going cordless. Their new Multi-X Cutting Kit, $185, runs… Read more
