"Hi Dan.

Sorry mate I missed your post. I don't know about any new blades for the time being. The current one is a pretty good fit for the machine and it capabilities. However i am sure as the tool matures it might get some new functionality and blades. I'll ask see if anything is in the pipe line.

In regards to Ah. It only increases a tools run time.

The deadline for entry for Tool testers has already passed for this machine. The 5 Bob testers have already received their test tools."


Thanks for the replay. I am one of the 5 testers and have recived the GKS. I read some where it has 4 weeks for reciving the tool. So would the dead line for the tool be the 13th of May?

Hi Dan.

Yeah. We would really like to see your review after around 4 weeks of use. So we think a month after recieving the machine is a good time to give a good account of your experience.

I have had a very annoying problem with my GKS 10.8 saw

its ok freehand but sometimes I want a very straight cut so I have been trying to use it with a straight edge, but as soon as the full width of the blade goes into the material the base of the saw moves away from the straight edge - if I try to force the plate against the edge then the load on the saw motor increases - result is that the saw will not cut the required straight line as it will not stay up against the straight edge

Tried same with a Makita Specialised B-9204 saw blade in my GKS 10.8 and this stays straight andf up against the straight edge 

So there is something wrong with my original Bosch saw blade

Hi Rebecca.

As you can see we have had a huge update to the Bob Forum and there have indeed been some teething issues. I am confident to say that all the Gremlins have to sorted. I got the review thank you. If you still have it feel free to put it on the Forum as normal. Any more troubles come back to me :)

Hi Bob

As a Bosch Professional Power tool user i have invested about £7000 into bosch products over the last 3 years, my main profession is wood working,
I have a vast array of bosch tools ranging from routers, a lot of the 10.8v range aswell as quite a few 18v range which include grinder, combi drill, impact driver, circular saw, planer, sabre saw and my newly aquired 18v Multi Tool (last december) to name just a few, 
I love all my kit and would really love the opportunity to get my hands on the new GKS 10.8 V-LI Professional Cordless Circular Saw, for me it would be extremely handy for all those wood cutting jobs were a normal 18v circular saw wouldnt be practical.

Thanks for the opportunity
Many Thanks
Ian.
