Now I know what some of you may be thinking. Putting a JessEm MastRSlide on a Bosch 4000 is well, kinda like putting a bored out 350 engine into a Chevy Citation. But with the mastRSlide, I have been able to achieve very accurate and just as importantly consistent results with this set-up. While someday I hope to be able to afford a hybrid or full-blown cabinet saw, the mastRSlide has allowed me to take on projects that I otherwise would never have dared attempt on the Bosch 4000 alone.
While the MastRSlide will not make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear, it will make for a very capable platform that will handle just about anything from full 4’x8’ sheetgoods to the most precise tenons. And the best part is that the mastRSlide can be transplanted when I get a better saw for my shop.
I would highly reccomend the JessEm sliding table to anyone who uses a table saw. The only down side is the fairly steep price (only have to cry once) and getting comfortable working on the left side of the blade.
With a little ingenuity, portability does not have to come at the expense of accuracy.
