I'm in the market for my first table saw and I've been looking around on the List, but haven't found exactly what I'm looking for so I went to the blue box store and the new Delta 36-725 caught my eye. I also like anything Bosch, so the 4100-09 is also a contender. They are two different type saws, but I can't really decide which one! They are the same price and the fact that one is portable doesn't really matter. I just think Bosch makes really good tools. I'm afraid the Delta is TOO new and the kinks aren't worked out yet. I've heard customer service is terrible and the issue with the throat plate bothers me (sheet metal and non zero clearance). So help me guys…. Which one?

If you like Bosch tools you'll love the Skilsaw 3310! This thing has all the safety features you could ever want (except for sawstop technology)! A riving knife, that big plastic thing that you slide the wood under, and those one spring loaded doohickeys on the back to prevent kickback. The aluminum table itself is for the environmentally minded individual - if you ever want to get rid of the saw it's easily recyclable! The fence is excellent as long as you always measure (at least) twice (front of blade to fence, back of blade to fence).

Let me know what I have to do to get you to drive this tablesaw off the lot today!
