I got one of those Bosch 4100-09 on the gravity cart NW. It's all shiny and new but I have a pile of well seasoned wood I milled 4-5 years ago that dying to become something other than a pile of timber. ;) There are a few pix of it and some of the wood over here. Looking for a table saw and compound mitre saw.

I've had the 4100 for 2 years now, and absolutely love it! Yep, it was a pain to assemble, but once that was done, it soo easy to set up. I got mine with all the options, so I can cut up a full sheet of plywood without any help.

That Bosch saw looks like a keeper. I'll bet you have it for years to come. Congrats!

Thanks guys. Looking forward to putting it thorough it's paces.

009 to 009, Are those the table extensions you're talking about? I saw a digital readout scale as an option but my eyes are still pretty good. ;) I figured my saw horses would function for longer pieces. That gravity cart is excellent. I love how easy it sets and closes. They just need to include a better illustrations in the assembly instructions. I don't "feel like" I'm a dumby ;) but I did get a bit frustrated putting that together and had to reverse couple setsof bolts,washers and locknuts after the fact. Just common sense stuff I suppose but it would be simple enough to include a "schematic" print of the thing.

On another note: I have had one of those jaw horse rigs for a couple of years. Very handy contraption when working alone.

Common sense.... I'm thinking we older people have it, but as we die off, it seems to die with us. You youngsters should know, it's not something we just pass on, it's something that you need to see and take. :)

Speaking of common sense, or lack thereof...that nephew that wanted (and didn't get) us to co-sign a loan.... The car he's driving has no inspection sticker, nor can it get one. So, he wants to borrow 6 grand from us to buy a 4WD truck. Well, that truck didn't pass my inspection so I had a talk with him. I suggested that as much as he desires a 4WD, he actually needs basic transportation. I suggested that we find him something that will get him by a year or two & let him save up a down payment for a decent truck. There are two Rangers locally that might fit the bill for less than $1,500. I suggested he let me go look at them. He said "but I want a 4WD". Yaaaa, soooo.... what are you going to do if the cops stops you, does not write a ticket, but tells you he doesn't want to see that car on the road again & you can no longer drive at all? His answer was "I'll pay the fine". I said " I told you he gave you no ticket". The nephew then says "But I need a 4WD". Arghhhhh!! I want back to square one "Do you want us to go look at the local 2WD's?" he said "I'll think it over". I'm done... he can keep thinking.

Yep, the table extentions. They may look flimsy when you get them, but once put together and installed, they work great, and fold away really easy. LOOKOUT! more bad instructions with those!
I was lucky, when I put my gravity cart together, I could refer to my brother's 4100, as he lived just down the street. Even so, I did the same thing, had a couple bolts reversed the first time around.
My brother is a professional contracter/carpenter, and his 4100 has been going strong for nearly 10 years now. So I figured mine should last a lifetime, for the small percentage of time I use it. I like the way the table explands to cut wide wood sheets. It took a little getting used to the reverse ruler/guide, but once you learn it, it becomes intuitive.

Sorry to hear about your frustrating,head banging against the wall Family Dilemma,Freddy ! Give a Guy a fish,and he eats for a day,Teach that same guy to fish,and he always eats! The problem seems to be when a loved one has the "inlet valve" to their brain jammed shut. They just seem to not want to learn to help themselves out. Tough Love does,unfortunately,have it's place. It hurts,but enabling a lack of tactical,practical common sense is not going to help someone live a good life...Ehh,random thoughts,I guess. I'm not entitled to anything,and that includes tomorrow's wake-up....Hopefully he'll wake up,smell some of your coffee and see the light ! Have a great weekend,everyone,and take good care ! :idea:
