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.!!!
