Improving the Bosch

I love my Bosch Glide mitre saw.   It is a wonderful piece of machinery.  If you have been following along though, you will realize that it does have some short comings.  One of them is the dust chute.  Here I do a simple job, with a reclaimed inner tube from a wheel barrow, to improve it a bit.  It is still not perfect, but it is a lot better.  I suppose that having the vacuum or a dust collector hooked up would improve it more, but I do not have the power to the shop yet, so we will have to wait to see what that does.

Thanks for dropping by


  1. Nice mod! It's worth knowing this sort of thing so that people stand a chance of getting the best out of their tools, thanks for the insight. Unfortunately I think a lot of other models suffer from the same problem, but there that makes this a fairly universal fix.
