The saw is better than I expected. Everything was in perfect alignment. The blade elevates and tilts easily. I especially like the table extension. The lock handle is very positive so I am sure it is locked down before I make my cuts. My splurge was the digital carriage. It is so accurate, I am glad I bought it. The smart guard is a great idea and because it is so easy to install, (no tools), I put it on when needed. I can always find it because it stores right on the saw. I like the gravity rise stand idea, but after setting it up, I find it has such a large footprint, it's awkward to get around. I wish I had bought the standard stand.

I purchased this saw based upon the various reviews I read as well as the Bosch reputation. So I would love to be reviewing the saw for how good it works as a saw but unfortunately I cannot. As I was going through the adjustments, as per the instruction booklet, imagine my surprise when I was adjusting the blade parallel to the miter gauge slots when one of the screws stripped. Well it was the aluminum saw blade housing that the screws screwed into that stripped. I didnâ€™t use that much force; in fact I used more force to loosen the screw than I did to tighten them. It appears that the steel screw thread is too fine for the aluminum application. I wished that I didnâ€™t need to adjust the blade but the way I received it, it was about a 1/8â€� off parallel â€" front to back. This was just too far off. This happened on a Saturday morning and the Bosch service department is closed on the weekend so I had to wait until Monday morning to call them. They recommended I take it to a local Bosch authorized service center (not Bosch owned) which I was glad to do. Once there, the service department told me they would try to expedite it but it may take a week to get it back to me. If they had to send it back to Bosch it would take a few weeks and they would HAVE TO CHARGE ME THE UPS SHIPPING CHARGE. The saw is brand new and I have to pay to fix a defect on a new saw? I guess we will see how this plays out. I know I should have waited until this did play out but I wanted to get my experience out there so people thinking about purchasing this saw would be aware of the potential stripping of the adjustment screws as well as the potential problems getting a new saw fixed. I personally feel since the saw is new (the zip tie installed at the factory to lock the on/off switch hasnâ€™t been cut yet) Bosch should just replace the saw â€" no harm no foul. Whether they do or not doesnâ€™t fix the fact that the aluminum saw blade housing is a potential problem. I do give two stars because I purchased this saw with the gravity-rise stand and it went together rather nicely. The instructions were incorrect with the necessary wrenches required. It seems that they have beefed up some of the bolts because the wrenches mentioned in the instruction booklet were smaller than actually needed. The solid tires are a nice change from the pneumatic tires that used to be provided. Once the saw was attached to the stand it worked nicely in moving the saw to my truck so I could take it to the repair facility.

Comments about Bosch Tools 10" Table Saw With Gravity-Rise Stand:
I'm am intermediate woodworker who enjoyed a cabinet saw for many years, but have moved and needed to downsize my shop. I tried to get away with not have a table saw, but I really missed the many operations one provides. Reviews pushed me to the 4100 and I am glad they did. I have been using the saw for the past three months. The saw was dead on accurate right out of the box. The miter gauge and rip fence lock securely and accurately. I up-graded the blade and use care to not push stock too fast through the cut. My last few projects were in walnut and the cuts are smooth and burn free. I have even resawed 1x4 walnut down to 3/16's (using great care, multiple feather boards and two passes) with very good results. I haven't put a dado blade on it yet. The folding stand works great in my small shop. Pushing sheet goods or long stock might reduce the stand's stability, but for medium and short stock it is solid. Dust collection is about 80% effective and it is loud. Small price to pay for accuracy and portability. Speaking of price it is probably the highest price saw in its class, but you definitely get what you pay for. If space or portability is important to you AND precision; this is the saw to get.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I had a table saw for 30 years and it worked fine until lately the pulley kept falling off. I got tired fixing it so I went shopping for a new one and after reading many reviews, I decided on getting the Bosch and I'm glad I did my homework. This is an excellent saw that will last another 30 years (although I probably won't...lol). It makes very accurate cuts and had lots of power. I ran 5/8 in OSB through it as fast and I wanted to push and it didn't even slow down!! My old one would have been choking at half the speed. I also love that all the accessories, blades, push stick etc. has a place to be stored right on the saw so they are always handy when needed. Also the stand is very easy to use once you get used to it. I highly recommend this saw. The only thing I didn't like is that a bit of dust escapes even though I had it connected to my shop vac.
Simply the Best

The Bosch 4100-09 10-inch Worksite Saw and Gravity-Rise Stand is a perfect match. The Gravity-Rise Stand itself is an engineering marvel and best power tool stand on the market without exception. Why?, because it's simple. The beefy 11/2" tubing will support any power tool you would like to make portable; table saw, planer, etc. With a quarter turn of the locking handle, it goes from storage position to working position in two seconds; no other legs or locking mechanism to fuss with. The name says it all, as the weight of the saw allows the stand to open and close smoothly. In open position, the table sits at a comfortable 37 inches high. The table saw has all features for a jobsite saw. Onboard storage for extra blades, the blade guard, fence, miter gauge, powercord, pushstick, and wrench. The tool-less blade guard, anti-kickbacks, and throat plate can all be quickly removed and installed. The riving knife is adjustable and can be secured in multiple positions, and only one wrench is needed to change blades, due to the integrated spindle lock. The underside of the table also comes predrilled and tapped for some accessories such as the outfeed support kit and left-side extension support kit, both sold separately.

We purchased a workshop for our Son. He has built several projects, Work bench, cabinets, shelves, etc, etc. He is really enjoying his hobby. The equipment is perfect. We will add more Bosch Equipment for his Christmas.
Great for its intended purpose
from Great Falls, MT, United States
I bought this due to downsizing to replace my 20 year old Delta Unisaw. So far I've only used it on sheet material but for that it was good. No where near the cutting power of the old unisaw but I think it will be just what I need for 90% of my needs. Probably not the best for long 2x rips but it should get the job done. I really like the stand and portability.
I waited too long!
from Garrettsville, OH, United States
I hesitated to make this much needed purchase because I was accustomed to carrying my saw from van to work site and having a small footprint while in the van. I took the plunge after seeing yet another demonstration at a local trade show. The gravity feed stand works effortlessly every time. The wheels roll right up my 1x ramps into my van. The space the saw takes up in transport is not a problem because, 1: I can easily stack tools or supplies ON it or UNDER it. 2: The saw performs wonderfully. Smooth cuts, enough power for just about anything, and nice features for dust collection. The riving knife gives me some comfort. The handy storage of cord, fence, square, and push stick keeps everything safe AND easy to find. Now I know why I see this saw so frequently on job sites. Performance and ease.

I bought this saw over a year ago and use it for home projects (benches, cabinets, etc) and this saw is perfect. The precision of the saw and the ease of adjustment is well worth the value compared to more expensive cabinet saws. Don't get me wrong, you can't go wrong with more power and a bigger benchtop, but for the average user this thing is more than capable.
