Bosch 4100-09 10 Inch Worksite Table Saw Review

The Bosch 4100-09 10” table saw is a durable and accurate tool for a woodworker. This model from Bosh comes furnished with the latest innovative Smart Guard system, for safety measures. It has a robust sub-base with a SquareLock rip fence, which allows one to easily operate it using one hand only. It also comes with carry handles.

The SquareLock rip fence makes this an effective and precise table saw with a lot of features. This allows one to craft the products easily and quickly. The Smart Guard system comes with enhanced fully anti-kickback pawls and is located along the modular blade guard and a riving knife system – giving one top quality control and extensibility over the cutting material as they work and further giving them an optimal length of view and maximum safety measures.

Have you been wandering around shops to buy a table saw and then got overwhelmed with all the choices available in the market? You are not alone. A table saw is an important tool for a woodworker and will be the backbone of his workshop. Here are some of the things to ponder about before buying a table saw: needs versus wants, space and safety measures.

  • Needs versus Wants

The very first task to determine what you need to do with the saw. Do you see yourself working with the thinner wooden boards? Then a saw with a large engine will not be very practical for you since a smaller engine will be a lot cheaper and will need less maintenance if it consists of ripping 1.0” or lesser thin board, then a 1.75 or 1.50 HP of motor in a table saw or a hybrid saw is adequate enough. Otherwise, one would require a 3 or 4 HP industrial strength motor, to rip down boards as thick as maple.

  • Space

If space is an issue in the workplace, like having the workshop be located in a basement or somewhere even smaller, then some saws can easily be knocked off the list because they will not fit in there. Saws, which are meant to rip down plywood, have a wide rip capacity, which requires a lot of space in front and the back of the saw.

  • Safety Measures

Table saws come with loads of safety features, but still they are inherently dangerous. One important improvement in the table saws is of the addition of a riving knife to help prevent any kickbacks. Some enhanced saws come with a flesh detection ability and stop as soon (in fact it is in milliseconds) as it detects any flesh involvement, letting anyone barely escape with more than a scratch only.

However, the best safety feature lies in the craftsman, and that is attentiveness. No matter how advanced or how highly patented the safety feature of a saw is, loss of focus can unfortunately lead to a loss of flesh.
