Default Bosch GTS 10XC and Dados thanks RCP16

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.

Default 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.
