I have the Osborne and wouldn't be without it.

I had an Osborne and liked it well enough, but gave it to my son in law with my old Delta TS. I don't miss it. I think it is too large to work well on a small table, the miter bar hung out unsupported out of the front of the saw. It was quite accurate though.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

I have the Osborne and the Incra HD1000, and like them both. I bought the Osborne because I got a good deal on it.

Don in Murfreesboro,Tn.

Measure once cut twice and it's still to short.

One of the main features other than the multiple angle settings was the adjustable miter bar. That being adjusted properly adds a good deal to the actual cut.

Thanks for writing. I was joking about the pain pills. I do take them as needed but not a fan as they can cause nausea which is worse than the pain. In the hospital the day of my surgery, I walked so much the staff said they were going to put up my photo with a NASCAR banner stating I now held the record for most laps run in a 24 hr. period. I've already replaced the walker for a cane, and use that rarely. Still can't bend over to pick-up loose screws on the shop floor yet, but I feel good and so happy to have the worst behind me.Thanks for your concern.

I decided on the 1000SE and through Amazon it should be here Friday evening.

Glad to hear of your success with the 1000SE and I hope for the same.

Got the 1000SE this afternoon and hobbling around the shop got in fitted in my Bosch 4100-10. Couldn't have been easier to get it set perfectly in the miter saw slot.

As I had never seen or held one in the flesh, I can say it's a heavy, well-made piece of machinery.

Couldn't resist a few quick cuts to check for 90 degrees and the machinist square says so.

It's great to smell the sawdust after a couple of weeks and the 1000SE made it possible to do so with pleasure.
