Ive just watched this beast in action......It was quite noisy but did the job of cutting out the old grout in a shower. Pity was the user must have slipped cos there is a chunk and a scrape missing from my wood ceiling now! So just watch whose hands it gets into!!! If their fingers are too big for bowling bowls and they have a passion for women who look like men, then be cautious if they have this in their hands, they could damage your ceiling too! :tool:

What is the best disk for removing grout and where do I get them. The serial number provided with the tool doesn't appear on the Bosch site?

Just bought one of these in Makro at £49.99 plus vat = £58.75.


Will use it one day I suppose. :thumbright: :thumbright:

I have just been using mine to cut plasterboard walls for wall boxes. It's ace, little or no mess far better than a dry wall saw :thumbright:

I wish I'd had mine when I did my kitchen, I had to put a false wall in and move sockets would've been handy then.
I'll have to think of a use for it before SWMBO finds I have'nt used it!

:lol: :lol: :lol:

Fit the sander accessory and let her use it to file her nails?

I'd like to lay some laminate flooring in my hallway; the skirting boards are concrete - post war austerity!

Would one of these go through the concrete (it's fairly sandy) ?

No, I doubt it very much.


You could probably do it with a small angle grinder and diamond tipped blade, but it will make a hell of a lot of dust.

You are sure the skirtings are concrete and not asbestos aren't you?

I'm sure someone had asbestos skirtings once, if they are you definately do not want to be cutting them.

Def concrete - the house was built about 1950 when there wasn't a lot of wood. Even the joists are mostly concrete with a small wooden center to nail the floor boards in.

I bought a 180E today from my local B&Q for £60. Cut through plasterboard no problem at all. Not so great with 15mm copper pipe as the edge was a bit ragged but that was probably down to me rather than the Bosch.

I sanded a varnished window frame back to the wood and was amazed; my B&D mouse is nowhere near as good! The only problem is, the sanding pad seems to have melted at the corners... :roll:

It is awesome at sanding!

I struggled cutting the copper pipe, although when I needed to use it on a piece that was wedged between two joists it was the only thing I could use.

:wav: I just bought one! Looking forward to having a go at diy using it. It was just under £60 but because I bought 3 de-icers for the price of 2 and spent £60,63p I got a £5 gift card for B & Q too. :thumbright:

I was wondering whether there is anything else that I should have bought to use on it. Are the attachments in the case really all you need?
