GCB10-5 Deep Cut Bandsaw

The Bosch GCB10-5 Deep Cut bandsaw is the easy-to-handle tool to deliver low-spark, clean cuts in rebar, conduit and other metals. These precise cuts require limited rework because the 10-amp saw is powerful enough to handle professional-sized jobs on most materials.

The Bosch GCB10-5 has a 10-amp motor, which delivers precise cuts in everything from rebar to copper pipe, from steel track to threaded rod. The bandsaw saves time by making clean cuts that require almost no rework for burrs or tempering colors. It accommodates most common applications in a single pass thanks to a cutting depth of up to 4-3/4 in.

The tool is ergonomically designed and weighs only 14.5 lbs., allowing it to provide efficient performance in a compact package. The bandsaw also includes a saw hook for during-the-job storage and an LED light to illuminate the cut line for greater accuracy.

"The Bosch GCB10-5 Deep Cut bandsaw offers the light weight and compactness that users demand on the jobsite,” said Mike Iezzi, product manager, Robert Bosch Tool Corp. “For most applications in electrical, mechanical, plumbing or construction trades, 4-3/4" depth more than gets the job done. It’s a great tool – versatile enough for dozens of tasks on the jobsite.”

The Deep Cut bandsaw provides nearly spark-free cuts for safer metalcutting operation. It features variable-speed settings, so the user can match the cut rate to the material for greater precision. Settings start at 100 sfm and go up to 380 sfm.

With a compact design and weight of less than 15 pounds, this bandsaw is suitable for cutting tough metal in difficult areas or for extended overhead applications. The main handle provides a comfortable grip for cutting in various positions. It also has a carry handle for easy transport.

Related Glossary Terms

  • bandsaw


    Machine that utilizes an endless band, normally with serrated teeth, for cutoff or contour sawing. See saw, sawing machine.

  • metalcutting ( material cutting)

    metalcutting ( material cutting)

    Any machining process used to part metal or other material or give a workpiece a new configuration. Conventionally applies to machining operations in which a cutting tool mechanically removes material in the form of chips; applies to any process in which metal or material is removed to create new shapes. See metalforming.

  • sawing machine ( saw)

    sawing machine ( saw)

    Machine designed to use a serrated-tooth blade to cut metal or other material. Comes in a wide variety of styles but takes one of four basic forms: hacksaw (a simple, rugged machine that uses a reciprocating motion to part metal or other material); cold or circular saw (powers a circular blade that cuts structural materials); bandsaw (runs an endless band; the two basic types are cutoff and contour band machines, which cut intricate contours and shapes); and abrasive cutoff saw (similar in appearance to the cold saw, but uses an abrasive disc that rotates at high speeds rather than a blade with serrated teeth).

  • tempering


    1. In heat-treatment, reheating hardened steel or hardened cast iron to a given temperature below the eutectoid temperature to decrease hardness and increase toughness. The process also is sometimes applied to normalized steel. 2. In nonferrous alloys and in some ferrous alloys (steels that cannot be hardened by heat-treatment), the hardness and strength produced by mechanical or thermal treatment, or both, and characterized by a certain structure, mechanical properties or reduction in area during cold working.
