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?

They are two different classes of saws. The Delta is an induction motor saw and a nice fence making it a much more appropriate saw for woodworking. The Bosch is a great universal drive jobsite saw, but since mobility isn't a big deal for you, go with the induction saw (Delta). The Delta has been reviewed in great detail LJ by thetinman.

PS: Get ready for the onslaught of people advocating you scour Craigslist.
