The portable table saw is the best woodworking tool a contractor, Handyman, Craftsman and remodeler, should have. Imagine for a moment, ripping several pieces of hardwood flooring, using a circular saw and straight edge. I am sure you can see how that is an extremely hard thing to do, and a good way to get someone hurt. On the other hand, using a portable table saw equipped with a rock-solid, easily adjusted rip fence, is unbelievably easy and much safer to use when making rip cuts to hardwood flooring, plywood, and building materials.

Simply the Best Portable Table Saw

For Woodworkers, Craftsman, and Handyman working on a woodworking project, the need for a table saw comes up. The first thing we think of is a large cabinet table saw, like the behemoths used in a serious woodworking shop. With large cast iron tables, smooth running powerful electric motors that repeatedly make extremely accurate cuts, and efficient dust collection systems.

The problem with a cabinet table saw, they would take up as much space in our garage workshop as one of those  smart cars, and cost as much. Being frugal minded as we are, that kind of expenditure is not about to happen any time soon.

However, on the other end of the spectrum, there are the cheep bench top table saws that seriously cannot make accurate rip cuts to a full sheet of plywood, hardwood trim, or yellow pine two by fours for that matter. There are a few good things about inexpensive bench top table saws.

Bench top table saws are easy to pick-up and move around a jobsite, workshop or garage. Cost less than a high quality ATB carbide 80-tooth blade, and easily stored on a shelf or under a workbench, they also make good garage sale items. When you get tired of fighting with them and decide it is time to get the portable table saw, you should have gotten in the first place.

The first feature we should have on a portable table saw is without question an easy to use, and set-up portable saw stand. The Bosch 4100DG-09 10-inch worksite table saw with digital rip fence, and gravity rise saw stand, is exactly what we should look for in a portable table saw. Simple and easy to set-up, patented gravity rise saw stand, is easy to roll around a garage, or roughest terrain found around any jobsite is no problem for the eight-inch pneumatic wheels. The durable anodized aluminum saw stand only weighs 39 pounds and easily folds up for storage.

The best portable table saw should have plenty of power for our entire rip cutting, and cross cutting jobs. The Bosch 4100DG-09 10-inch saw delivers here as well. With a 15amp, soft start constant response electronic control motor, delivers a maximum four horsepower at 3650-rpm, and easily adjusted to make bevel cuts from -2 to 47 degrees, and enough power to make dado cuts up to 13/16 inch. The motor is set-up to use a standard 5/8 inch arbor 10-inch blade; however, narrow kerth blades make it easier on the motor especially when using an extension cord on the job site.

Before any table saw can simply be the best, it must have a large cutting table, strong easy to adjust rip fence. The Bosch 4100DG-90 has both, a precision-machined aluminum table, for rugged durability and long life, the best in class SquareLock digital rip fence for fast, easy adjustments and accurate rip cuts to 1/32 inch. The cutting table measures a generous, 21.5in long by 29in wide, with a maximum ripping width of 25in.

The best in class, SquareLock digital rip fence is easily adjusted and effortlessly glides along the saw table with one hand, has a large LCD readout that will consistently read in increments of, 1/8in,1/16in, 1/32in or decimal inches and millimeters up to 0.5, that ensure repeatable accurate cuts on your next woodworking project.

The first of its kind Smart Guard System, is quick and easy to set–up without any tools, and provides important protection for the user, by providing better visibility, which helps to avoid kickbacks and contact with the blade. Which I think you will agree, is a very good thing to have on the Bosch 4100DG-09 10-inch Portable Table Saw, which is simply the best portable table saw, a Contractor, Handyman, Craftsman and Remodeler should have.
