So, what are the projects you can use this awesome Bosch 4100-10 table Jobsite saw in?
This saw is really great for any kind of work, be it residential and construction work, furniture carpentry work, DIY restorations, Home-building or general house woodworking.
It is very easy to operate and will always be a reliable partner in all sorts of projects.
Another great thing about this saw is that it comes with gravity rise, which is an all-new stand design for table saws. If you want to raise the table height or maybe lower it, you can use this feature and work in comfortable table height position.
You can rip both ply and hardwood with this Bosch portable saw for professionals. No matter if you are doing flooring, cabinetry or decking, this saw can handle all that with any problems.
Usage of this table saw is not limited; you can use it for prolonged periods of time. It is a machine that Is always ready to support professional on their everyday work.
NOTE: To make sure that the table saw functions at 100% all the time, make sure that all the moving parts are well lubricated and make sure that you clean all the dust-up every now and then.
The staring of the saw is very smooth and quickly deliver the maximum power for your cutting needs. We also like the constant response system which will deliver more torque when needed and will regulate the output power to make sure that there is enough to cut the wood you are operating on.
Very handy, yeah?
This Bosch 4100-10 comes with a digital display. It has got the Bosch DC010 display which is a high visibility LCD display screen to measure the cuts accurately when ripping wood.
After you assemble the saw and calibrate it, the display can be attached to the fence magnetically. This measurement hat you take while working is very accurate and can be true to 1/32 inches.
Mind-blowing isn’t it?
The display also picks up repetitive cutting work. It will work in unity with you and show you precise measurements each time.
The rip fence on this machine is made out of high-quality materials and will help you cut true square cuts. Although we did not like that one need to adjust it with two hands.
Power & Speed
The power draw of this saw is 15 Amp which means it is an electricity eater. Well, after all, it is a power tool! You will need a 120V electrical outlet to operate it.
The motor that is fitted in this Bosch 4100-10 table saw is a 4 Horsepower motor. The motor is enough to boost the blade to an RPM level of 3650.
The amount of torque it generates is really good and will cut into hardwoods and ply like a champ.
The vibrations while cutting wood on this Bosch 4100-10 are really minimum, it is there but not enough to annoy you.
The design of the table saw has been in a way that it rips through any kind of wood with ease. It will cut with accuracy and consistency.
Power of this Bosch 4100-10 is very impressive, and it can cut maximum dado up to a length of 13/16 inches.
The saw comes with 24 teeth 10-inch blade, which is made out of high-quality carbide. This blade is normally enough for everyone, and it does the job well. You will be ok with this blade for a while before upgrading to something better.
Bosch 4100-10 portable table saw can extend to 29 inches where you will be able to get 8.5 rip capacity on the left of the blade and 24 inches of rip size on the right of the blade.
If you are an expert and have a person to help you out, you can actually remove the rip fence and work with much larger pieces of wood.
BUT this is not advisable because safety is our first priority.
During working, you would find that the SquareLock rip fence is a great thing. It will actually help you cut precisely and easily with one hand. The fence will slide along the rail very easily, and you would get work done efficiently.
You will have a surface of 29 inches by 21-1/2 inches, which is really huge for a portable table saw. You can rip a 4 feet wide wood sheet with a 25-inch rip capacity, isn’t that really amazing?
This saw is great for people who want to attach a vacuum cleaner or a dust bag to their machinery. You attach whatever you like to the dust port that is provided in this table saw.
The diameter of the dust port is 2-1/4 inches.
If you do not use anything, then the dust is going to be expelled from behind the table saw (opposite of the worker). People who have used this Bosch 4100-10 table saw have written in their reviews that they are fairly satisfied with the dust collection.
However, you have to be careful about the dust building up inside the unit. What will happen is, the dust will start gathering inside, and then it would be hard to lower or raise blade when you need.
Make sure you keep cleaning up the settled and gathered dust regularly.
TIP: if you don’t like the dust kickback, then remove the aluminum panel near the ejection port. This will reduce the dust kick back by a little. To do this, you just have to unbolt two wingnuts. It can be done with hand without any kind of tools.
Movability & Transportability
When Bosch people were designing this extraordinary Bosch 4100-10 table saw, they made the portability of the machine a priority.
They wanted to make a table saw for people who did not have to do the heavy lifting to move the saw around form one job site to another.
This is one of the few saws that come with a joined stand assembly. The stand of the table saw is made out of very sturdy tubular aluminum parts. This stand is also completely coated with a powder coat to make sure that no tarnishing occurs.
The overall dimensions of the stand are 30 inches high, 20.9 inches deep and 39.13 inches wide. Once you set up the table saw, the height of the cutting table will be at 37.5 inches although this can be adjusted if you like.
If you want to stow away the whole machine, the table saw will occupy the following dimensions: 45 inches tall, 30 inches deep and 28.5 inches wide.
The whole table saw can be moved on the two wheels easily. It is now easy more than ever to move around the saw with you everywhere you go.
One downside we noticed with this table saw is an absence of large wheels. The small wheel on this table saw makes the frame scrap on thins when pulled. If you want to solve the problem quickly, then try affixing felt furniture roll or some kind of protective tubing on the frame of the stand.
There is an integrated storage area on this table saw. You can actually place all your safety equipment and other accessories in this storage area.
This would make it very easy for you not to forget a few pieces of your accessories here and there, especially when you are shifting from one job site to another.
Talking about the safety aspect of this Bosch 4100-10 portable table saw, it features an anti-kickback mechanism in it. It will stop most of the kickback of wood which can cause problems and injuries as well.
Along with that, they have also added a feature to add a riving knife in it. This will help prevent accidents and injuries due to wood pinching and kickbacks. Don’t forget the Arbor lock, and it’s really helpful to change the blade quickly.
They have a smart guard system installed in this table saw for experts. The riving knife is adjustable, and it is paired with a transparent view barrier guard assembly.
Overall, they have thought about durability and safe usage that would last for years when making this saw.
The total weight of the Bosch 4100-10 table saw is 92 pounds.
If you remove the standard equipment and the stand, the weight of the bare saw will be 58 pounds. The whole assembled saw is quite heavy, make sure you have a helping hand when you are lifting the saw to place it or retrieve it from your van or truck.
Bosch makes only high-quality machines; they stand behind their machines as they have complete confidence in their performance and durability.
They will offer a complete warranty for 1 year, although we are sure the table is going to work flawlessly for many years as long you maintain and service it from time to time.
