Ok ---- since apparently no one is going to man-up and support my rack & pinion Dewalt saw choice...
I have no choice but to drink the Bosch kool-aid too!

When I get back in town, I will order the Bosch 4100, with zero clearance and dado inserts.
All the reviews and youtube videos seem to agree with all of you. You are Wise Men after all.

The very first thing I will do, before unpacking anything, is to measure the miter gage slots to make sure they are parallel to the blade.
THEN.... I will need help on deciding what to make the runners out of, for my cross-cut sled...... (two, three, four....) -- hahaha

I just finished reading the novella posted about runner blade materials !
I laughed, I cried, --- hahaha --- I actually learned a lot.

I will do an unpacking and review when I receive it.


Thank you all again -- and I hope to learn the secret Bosch Hi Sign after I get my saw.!!!

RT is "reconditioned"...by Bosch, better than off the line...

Points to Ponder...

LEARNING - the decision you make to know and
understand more about some thing.

TIME - the thing that gets in the way of learning.

The table saw is such an important tool, the center of the shop really, that its is wise to take your time and find out which is the very best for the money. Stick is right about reconditioned being better than factory original. The highly skilled techs don't want to get it back, so they tend to perfect it. EVery Bosch tool I own was pretty much perfectly set up out of the box, but I'd never expect that, so checking is good. Pretty easy to realign with the Bosch 4100. I was fortunate to have been able to afford to upgrade to a Laguna Fusion 10 inch saw from a Delta Contractor saw I picked up on clearance from Lowes, for $300. My son in law has it now. When you get ready for a better, higher capacity tool check out the Laguna saw.

I agree. Many times I've wished to have a portable.

I may have already posted this, but a friend has a 4100 that he built a table around. There's a cutout where the saw fits tightly. He leveled the saw's table to the wood table top so he has both an infeed and outfeed table. I'm amazed at the work he turns out for boading. He cut dados for the extra long runners so he can cut a decent sized piece of material despite the small size of the saw. The Bosch has a nice size table for a portable.
