Original Press Release:
Bosch's New Adapter Nut Allows Universal Quick Change System to Work with Competitor Saw Cups
Mount Prospect, Ill., September 7, 2007 - The Bosch Power Tools and Accessories Quick Change Hole Saw System offers users more flexibility than ever before. What makes it universal? Bosch's new patent pending adapter nut, which lets users cut with any Bosch hole saw and with almost any other manufacturer's hole saw cups.
Users simply attach the adapters to their cups, drill a hole, and pull back on the mandrel to change cup sizes in seconds. The quick change system also eliminates the time-consuming task of digging the plug out from the middle of the cup. Again, in seconds, the user can eject the plug upon angled re-insertion of the pilot bit.
The universal adapter nuts feature a hex shank for easy installation and removal with the quick change mandrels. The heavy-duty hex drive design ensures that hole saws lock quickly and securely into place, unlike conventional threaded systems, which can seize up and force parts to weld together. The adapter nuts are designed to work with most major brand hole saws so users can experience quick change with their existing hole saw setup, measuring the time it takes to change cups in seconds, not minutes.
Bosch offers a number of kits allowing users to get the quick change experience. The HBUSKIT provides 4 key hole saw sizes ranging from 1" to 2-½", a quick change mandrel and two adapter nuts. The PCM38AN kit includes a 3/8" mandrel and two adapter nuts while the PCM12AN includes the adapter nuts and a ½" mandrel. Finally, the CK2 provides 6 adapter nuts, 2 small for holes sizes 9/16" to 1-3/16" and 4 large for holes sizes 1-¼" to 6", to convert a wide range of saws to quick change.
