We’re told that Perceptron and Bosch have entered into a partnership to jointly develop new optical inspection devices. Perceptron is known for their non-contact measurement and inspection solutions, and as you should already know Bosch is a strong competitor in the power tool market. Details are very vague at this point, but it looks like […]
Bosch has just released a new video demo of their new 12″ dual-bevel axial glide miter saw. The video actually does a great job of highlighting the hard-to-visualize features Bosch developed for their innovative saw. Although the saw is designed for jobsite use, it looks to offer many DIY-friendly features as well. Bosch GCM12SD Axial Glide […]
Bosch’s new generation of compact lithium-ion cordless tools offers more speed, more power, greater comfort, and ridiculously lightweight and compact packages. After using the new PS21 pocket driver and PS31 3/8″ drill/driver for a few projects, my impression of the tools is even better than expected! Given the two tools’ core design similarities, they are […]
Bosch just announced that they will be releasing two new laser range finders to complement their short and medium-range platforms.

Bosch is rolling out new additions to their lineup of oscillating multi-tool accessories. Since oscillating multi-tool users spend most of their times cutting various materials, Bosch initially focused on developing [MANY!] new cutting accessories.
Reader Jan sent us in a tip that Lowes is holding an unadvertised promotion on Boch 12V tools. If you buy one of the qualifying 12V tools (new or older models), you get a free 12V battery, in-store. Jan notes that the free batteries are the older 411a models, not the newer 412 series ones, […]
Bosch has just announced their new Speed-X Hammer Carbide bits, which are said to be game changing fast. Not only are these new bits the fastest in their class, they’ve been engineered to last even longer. Pros who need to drill deep holes in concrete, are you excited yet?!
Over at Coptool, Jay spills the beans about which Bosch tools will be the first to be bundled with the new Bosch-Sortimo L-Boxx tool cases. It looks like the first 3 kits will be Bosch’s new 12V PS31 drill-driver (PS31-AL $159), their cordless 12V Multi-X oscillating tool (PS50-2BL $199), and Bosch’s new jig saw (details TBD). […]
Bosch’s PS41-2A 12V pocket impact driver has just started popping up at online retailers. This update to Bosch’s PS40 impact driver is not as huge of a step forward compared to PS21 Pocket Driver and PS31 Compact Corded Drill, but it’s still quite an improvement. As we mentioned in our sneak peak a few months […]
HomeFixated has confirmed what we had been hoping for – after a long wait, Bosch and Sortimo’s joint tool storage products will finally be making their way to the USA! Sortimo’s L-Boxx tool storage system looks like it could rival Festool’s Systainer line in terms of jobsite versatility and flexibility, and it will be interesting to see […]
Coptool (of Ohio Power Tool) just broke the news that Bosch will soon be releasing a new woodworking router spindle (MRC23EVSK), complete with redesigned plunge and fixed bases. Bosch has earned themselves a solid reputation amongst woodworkers with their current 1617 series routers. From the looks of it, Bosch outdid themselves and their new feature-rich routers […]
Judging by the attention it’s been receiving lately, Bosch’s new GCM12SD Axial-Glide sliding dual-bevel miter saw must have been the crown jewel of their media event. Bosch’s engineers managed to increase the work capacity of this miter saw while shrinking its footprint, making it a compact high-performance monster of a saw.
A few weeks ago, we talked about Bosch’s new Power Box 360 music/power center, and how it claims to “re-define” jobsite sound. The new Power Box 360 features four speakers and a subwoofer, modern media connectivity options, and quite a few snazzy features. While that sounds great on paper, how does the Power Box 360 […]
Bosch’s popular woodworking router comes with 1/4″ and 1/2″ collets, but what if you want to use different shanked burs and bits? We found that replacement collets were available by 3rd party manufacturers, such as Galaxy Products.
Bosch next-generation Power Box 360 sound system and power center offers five speakers and an integrated subwoofer (!!!!) to project high-quality sound in all directions. The new Power Box 360 is more powerful than the original and updated Power Boxes, and offers many more modern upgrades.
I don’t know about you, but except for a chain saw, an angle grinder is about the last thing I want to be more compact and slim. It looks as though I’m in the minority here as both Bosch and Ridgid offer small slim grip angle grinders. Maybe they’re on to something after all.
Bosch has just announced a new line of high performance Impact Tough accessories that are designed for use with cordless impact drivers. This new line of accessories will include insert and power bits (Phillips, square, Torx), nut setters, socket adapters, sockets, and hole saws. These new Impact Tough accessories are engineered to take the hit and […]
Just when we thought we covered all of Bosch’s new 12V compact lithium ion cordless tools, we caught a glimpse of one more, the new PS41-2A impact driver. The PS41 is an update to the venerable but dated PS40, and like Bosch’s new PS21 pocket driver and PS31 drill/driver, the new impact driver appears to have been significantly […]
Following hot on the heels of the newly redesigned PS21 Pocket Driver is Bosch’s new PS31-2A 12 volt 3/8″ cordless drill/driver, which improves upon their PS30 model. The newest addition to Bosch’s lineup of compact lithium-ion cordless tools is lighter, more compact, and stronger than its predecessor.
