Well, we were in Friedman Bros Hardware and they were having a 1 day 20% off
sale... I've been itchy and bitchy since my DeWalt 708 got ripped off last
year and SWMBO says that I could get either the Bosch 4412 or replace my
DeWalt as an early Christmas present.... Well, as you can imagine, I was
all over that like white on rice... I picked up the new Bosch 4412 12" SCMS
because of the front controls. I have read posts (Amazon) about possible
loose arbor bearings, but my earlier inquiries to Bosch (I do LOTS of
research before I pick a tool) said that it was VERY isolated and long since
corrected. I also spoke with the district sales manager for Bosch and he
said out of the 350+ saws he sold through May, only two had any trouble and
everything currently for sale is okay.
Anyway, after we got the saw, SWMBO asked if I didn't need a Forrest
Sawblade "Like the good one on your tablesaw?".... and that that SHOULD be
part of the package. And if you're wondering, no, she doesn't have any
God bless her..... I expect I'll have her up to her ass in compound angle
planter boxes way before spring...
A full report on the saw after I go set it up and make some sawdust...
