Bosch GTS10XC

Home/Tools and Jigs/Bosch GTS10XC

I have this year retired my trust Triton series 2000 workcentre. It has served me well but is getting old is very noisy and has limitations. I have been looking for nearly a year. I don’t have space for a cabinet saw as much as I would like one.

I started looking as the compact table saws. There were three contenders Bosch, Metabo and Dewalt. I did briefly look at a Makita but didn’t like the finish.  All three were comparable in price. I was to some extent aided by an article in Wood Review  an Australian woodworking magazine. There were pros and cons. The Dewalt had a rack and pinion fence system but I didn’t like the finish of the machine  overall.

I thought long and hard about the Metabo one of its strong point was an integral stand. Simply fold up and roll away.

In the end I opted for Bosch GTS10XC. I liked the braking when it shuts down. A mobile base would have been good but it came with a foldable base. The dust extraction works well and I can hook up my shop vac no problems.

I can rip up to 650mm wide. It also has a sliding table which holds the mitre gauge. Its simple to use and accurate. It has cut square out of the box.

I intend to build  a mobile base for Bosch GTS10XC table saw with storage draws. This will allow me to move it about and roll it away when not in use. I will also try and create a cross cut sled for this machine.

So its vale Triton Series 2000 workcentre and welcome to the Bosch GTS10XC.
