Power Tool Advancements Over The Years

Over the years lots of different types and designs of power tools have come and gone. One of the big questions on lots of people’s lips is: “How much better are modern tools, compared to the ones of say 10 years ago. ” In the article I’m hopefully going to answer that question, plus maybe a few others along the way. Firstly lets compare a classic, the Bosch GST 85 jigsaw with its newer cousin the Bosch GST135. I think it’s fair to use Bosch as an example here as they designed the first jigsaw way back in 1947, and they are the first choice for tradesmen all over the world. According to Bosch’s website, one in every two jigsaws in use world wide is made by Bosch. Motor wise the 135 has a much more powerful motor at 720watts compared to the 580watt input of the GST85. However that said the 85 has a faster stroke speed of 3100spm. So, I hear you ask those number are great, but how far has the jigsaw come since the GST85. Well, perhaps one specification will make it a little clearer. The GST135 can cut through 135 mm of wood. The GST85 only 85mm. Perhaps that’s how they get there name. Ok well what about price. Well the GST135 retails for around £165, its list price is higher, but as a rule about £165 is what I’d expect to pay. The GST85 used to retail at around the same price if not more. What that tells me is there aimed at the same price range, but in the modern age of ecommerce the price of tools has come down. In use the Bosch GST135 feels a lot more powerful and responsive. One specification I often hear about the 135 is it has 25% more torque that the GST85. It shows from the moment you turn the tool on. The newer model also offers the added function of dust extraction, and also the new technology of Constant Electronic. Constant Electronic basically is a clever piece of electronic trickery that boost the power output when under heavy loads. I’d defiantly conclude in the case of jigsaws the Bosch GST135 is a major step forward over is predecessors, not only in specifications, but in use. If you ever get chance to use one I’m sure you’ll agree. Wielding one of these bad boys makes you feel like a true workman. Even Brazilian hard wood will yield easily under will of this Bosch power house. In summary I suppose it is obvious that power tools get better as technology improves. However is it worth replacing your trusty old tools with the newer versions? That’s a harder question to answer. I recommend considering how often you use the particular tool and I suppose it depends on what you use them for. So Johan I hear you ask “How much better are modern tools, compared to the ones of say 10 years ago?” In short they are vastly better, but don’t get rid of your old tools until you require something better.

Bosch On How To Get Ahead In The Power Tool World

When it comes to power tools Bosch is the key word. Bosch always seem to have much more choice on offer that many other manufacturers of similar tools. However, Bosch are indeed the largest manufacturer of power tools in the world, so you assume he range of tools to be very impressive. Whether you're looking for a quality jigsaw, table saw, drill sander retrieval system or dust, Bosch tools are recognized internationally as among the best in the industry.
  Following the vision articulated by its founder, Robert Bosch, Bosch Tools has continued to prosper by focusing on the manufacture of quality equipment and developing new designs. Bosch has been synonymous with power tools since the first Bosch electric hair clippers in 1928, followed by the first electro-pneumatic hammer in 1932.
  I myself have always been a fan of Bosch Equipment. As is the case for the vast majority of German technology, it really does seem to last and last. But it is not only the reliability of Bosch that I love. They always seem to run much smoother and quieter running it as many other brands of the same level.
  Bosch seems to be always a step ahead of the competition. They seem to have spent much of their search for energy in developing ways to make their tools more efficient, easier to use, light to transport and more compact for easy storage. When Bosch launch a replacement for one of the oldest machines, there is still a huge improvement over its predecessor. Some manufacturers seem just launched a new tool ever months ago to improve the old design. It seems that since the beginning Bosch engineers and technicians, not only built tools, but also developed visions and translate them into reality.
  With Bosch Lithium have capitalized on yet another, he advanced search. There are many benefits of a Lithium Ion Machine, such as maximum power and more performance without a weight penalty, and Bosch seems to have checked the whole list there.
  The study of ergonomic principles in the early 1950s and Bosch is one of the first manufacturers to use design tool ergonomic hand power tools.
  In summary
  Bosch engineering is driven by a desire to produce tools with low vibration, minimum noise level, precision, dust extraction / police, simple and easy accessory changes and the best power to weight of the tool. More simply, in any category of power tool, there's just nothing better than the Bosch brand for reliability, design and performance. Robert Bosch high reputation is cemented by virtue of their heavy power tools, their illustrious pioneer history, and the consistency of their car in branching and development of patents and how to improve current technology.
