I’m “patiently” waiting for my 4100-09 to arrive. I have a large stationary saw with an attached router table built into a cast iron wing and 52” Jet Lock fence. Can’t very well take that to a jobsite. I bought another set of yellow Board Buddies with the mounting rail for the Bosch. I have figured that the tee slot on the face of the Bosch’s fence can be used to attach an auxiliary 3/4” maple “face board” with which to attach the BB aluminium mounting rail to that. That being said if I wish to stow the fence on the saw in its storage slot all I will have to do is remove the aux fence board with the removal of 3 flat head machine screws that will be countersunk into the face of the aux board. There is an “entry point” at the far end of the fence to slide 1/4-20 hex nuts into that tee slot. The slot I’m told “locks” those nuts for tightening. All this leads to the fact that you can “extend” the length for the rip fence if need be. The table extends to 25”. Even with an aux face board of 1/2 or 3/4 you’ll still be able to rip a 4×8 sheet in half. I also ordered the left side table extension bar for it. That attaches the guides with 4 socket head cap screws into bosses cast into underside of the table. There is a set screw knob that locks on a flat side of the bar on the operator side. This gives another 12” of support to the left of the blade. It slides back against the table for stowage. As for the accuracy of the fence, that issue can be resolved with set up adjustments. This is a “jobsite” table saw, not a Bridgeport. If it will keep to 1/64, I’ll be happy. Hey, you need room for glue n’est pas? An Incra miter guide will be in it’s future too I think.

As for the 4100-09 I’m waiting to put it through its paces. I “kicked the tires” a bit at a Lowes where they had one on display. That Gravity Rise stand is simply marvelous. It even has pneumatic tires! I may Slime those just for S&G’s so that flats will be a non issue.
