HI All,
I have a Bosch GTS 10XC, which is basically the UK/European version of the 4100.

With a few exceptions. Blade size is 254 mm with a 30 arbour. 30 mm arbour is accomplished by the inner washer having a 30 mm shoulder. The actual shaft is 5/8 of an inch and obviously the 254 mm blade size is 10 inch.
Arbour nut threads are slightly less than 5/8 probably metric.

Unfortunately can't fit a dado set, as the 30 mm shoulder is approx. 1 mm deep.

Logged onto Bosch US and reviewed the parts drawing (and the picture RCP16 posted of the Bosch 4100 troubles) realised that the 4100 shaft could be fitted to the GTS 10XC.

Ordered the following parts is the US

Shaft Part Number: 2610950043
Washer (Outer) Part Number: 2610950045
Washer (Inner)Part Number: 2610950046
Nut Part Number: 2610950047
C-Clip Part Number: 2610997281

Removed the shaft and fitted the above parts, now can run a Dado. Also can use either 254 mm blade arbour size by fitting the original inner washer. Or fitting the 4100 inner washer and can now use 10 inch blades with 5/8 arbour.

Please note to strip the original shaft down. Will require a bearing puller. The space between first bearing and the gear wheel is quite tight. Will require pullers with rather thin feet.

I used a hub puller which allowed me to get between the bearing and puller.

Stripping the shaft and shaft locking plate are relatively simple. As requires a Philips head

I'm having a similar prob. With fitting a dado set. Is the 4100 arbor longer than the one fitted to the gts 10xc?
Also is it poss to use 30mm bore dado set?
Thanks

I'm daring to guess it's because they are trying to make the most of what they have(?)

Arbor is exactly the same length. The difference is the 5/8 arbor the flats extend the full length.
The thread part on the 4100 is exactly the same on as the plain shaft part. On the gts 10 it is slightly less in diamaeter.
To use a dado set the inner washer is removed, the outer washer is moved in to the inside. Then the dado is installed.
30 dado cannot be used as the inner washer has only a very small shoulder which the 30 mm bore blade sit's on.
Hence the reason I changed the arbor.

The 4100 manual states that an 8 inch dado can be used

Hope this helps

Hi Phil the 4100 manual states an 8 inch dado can be used. Where as the GTS can't.

I only have a small workshop 4 X 4 meters, the bosch is ideal as it is mounted on the gw stand which moves about on rollers and can fold down.

Regarding dado use it is just another process tool I can now use.

Just bought the GTS 10 XC

First of all I have just become a member of this forum and I am also a beginner so all the experienced people should forgive me for asking elementary questions...

Dear Jolly1,

I have just received the Bosch GTS 10 XC and I have seen your post regarding the American parts you ordered to replace the original ones so you could use other blades including dado sets...

I have three quick questions if I may:

- Are you still happy with the American parts in your saw?
- If so where did you order the parts from?
- You mention a bearing puller... Would you be so kind to post a photo of one like the one you used?

Thanks ever so much for your time

Jorge

Hi Jorge,

here is the address
ereplacementparts.com
Bosch4100-09
Parts List and Diagram - (0601B13010) : eReplacementParts.com

If I remember correctly, delivery was around 2 weeks. As the shaft was not in stock.
Also got hit for customs import charges,

As for using the dado yes has been ok. I take it you know that the outer washer on the shaft goes on first then the dado set. As you end up with 2 outer washer, I fit the second one on after the dado. This restricts the width of the dado to 18 mm, which is fine for plywood. I take the cuts in a couple of passes.

Also when fit a dado you will require an insert plate for the dado



Bearing puller I bought from screwfix.com


You will also require an inside circlip remover pliers.

Pictures attached.

Hi,
When fitting a dado set you said you will require an insert plate for the dado
What is the insert plate ?
Does it come with the dado set ?
Do you have any pictures of one ?
If so it would be much appreciated as i have bought all parts from the states as you advised and would like to make sure it is done properly.
Thanks

Insert plate is the red part of the table which the blade comes thro. Or rather the part that is removed to access the blade

reading this with interest - do you think this will work for the previous model gts 10 - the model without the sliding table on ball bearings?
many thanks

Hi,
The shaft I used in the GTS10 XC was from a 4100, so you would need to check if the shaft from the 4000 and 4100 are compatible.
I have been running an 8 inch dado successfully, with no problems.

Currently I am modifying the mitre slide to remove the small amount of sideways play.

Replacing the washer...

Hello,

Been following this ever since I thought of buying the GTS 10XC and now that I have, I was wondering could I just get the inner washer (the one with the 30mm shoulder) replaced with the 4100 model - so that I could use a dado set ? perhaps I'm missing something...

Thanks
