My retired machinist neighbor picked up a used Bosch 4100 TS last Winter, He did a major cleanup and adjustment on it and it's running perfectly now.
I gave him my old 8" dado set, so he was committed to making some DIY table inserts, before he could use the dado set.
OK; question.
on one the side of the table opening (left below) there is a raised ledge, part of the table casting and nothing to do with the insert leveling pads.
Have any of you 4100 owners removed that ledge to simplify making DIY plywood insert plates?
(See pic below)
He can work around it but it'd sure be simpler if it wasn't there...i did mention that he's a machinist.

Poor engineering then; it's at a higher level than the leveling pads. He can certainly work around it by routing that section deeper...just a p.i.t.a.
*bonus; he had a great time today dadoing, after making the plywood insert. First time dadoer... :)

nope...
cake and pie..

excellent...

the thinner ZC's are thicker at the pads to allow for more threads...

Doesn't explain why they raised that one section, unless it had something to do with the design of the casting.
it's also a key way...

BACK THE TRUCK UP!

WTH IS GOIN ON!

This is the only place that I've found where a person can go to talk about routing, and have a good time talking other trash, as well! I hang here, to catch up and blab as much if not more than FB! (No drama here, and I can talk about my 2nd favorite subject: Wood).

Y'all are devastating me. I feel like I walked into a horrible movie, and someone closed the doors to the theatre and I can't get out! Add to the mixture that I have NO freakin idea WTF is going on, and what started this entire mess, and my "Good Girl" is about to go BEYOND bad, and my "RUN IF YOU VALUE YOUR HIDE" is about to come out!

Barb, something hit the fan. Have paper towels handy. Maybe Cricket can enlighten us ?? It's all a mystery. Maybe it's got something to do with the changes coming up. ????

I am with you on this one, Barb,


Something seems to have occurred between some members and the owners.


I only trust that the upcoming changes are not so dramatic, they cause the forum to fold...
