    I think I’d rather carry it without a stand at all

    hhmmm. Interesting as I am looking at getting the 8″ sliding miter saw and will put it on my GR that my axial glide is on (it will be permanently in the shop) and I was looking at the disconnects for the miters saws. It would be nice at times to have them not all as one unit. I never take the axial glide off as it is an absolute tank to move around, but the little guy should be easy.

    I wonder if something similar could be done for the GTS table saw? A quick release method on top of a GR??

    I spect a guy could pin it on there, Or perhaps even better those flip down clamps. I forgot what they’re called, but they’re used a lot on like drill presses to hold the material down

    EDIT; Ok I looked em up, Toggle clamps Duh!! Here’s another one too that might even be better, And you could make yer own

    The stand for the thing folds to nothing, is light to carry, and is stable as a tank

    I dont see why someone would sacrifice most of the compact footprint and portability by putting it on a gravity rise.

    Also, there is a good deal on at lowes (free shipping to quebec too) for the GTS1031 including the stand for 350 CAD…..

    I like the way it breaks down for portability, what is the weight of the GTS1031?

    Whatever it is, its a relatively easy one-handed carry from the side handle. Maybe 50-60lbs….

    Its a well-balanced weight

    The GTS1031 is easy to move around. I’ve taken mine up 3 flights of stairs for the last 3 days with no problem.
    Oh and yes it will shave a RCH with no problem for those in the trades. See the van down there…. So glad I have the small sliding chop saw and small table saw.

    I spilled water all over myself just now when I googled RCH.. lol

    Yep if I go with 1031 I’d get the folding stand with it, not GR. Pretty sure lowe’s is saw only, no stand, so that’s another $120 on top.

    Oh shoot just realized something. The 4100 I saw in stores has imperial scale only, is either one available with combo imperial and metric markings?

    Was in Hd the other day and they had the saw on clearance and the stand too. Think the saw was 329 stand 49 .
    Seems as though HD is phasing out on Bosch or expecting new models?

    The 4100 is impressive. Smoothest jobsite table saw that I have used. The gravity rise stand is incredible.

    The only reason for the GR stand with the GTS is well, I’m getting old…

    Sometimes it’s just nice to wheel it around instead of lifting it off an on.

    Oh, and the split guard, anti kickback and miter gauge all suck on both machines. The riving knife is nice.

    I had high hopes for the miter gauge, Then I had high hopes in tweakin it a bit to be better. Haven’t tried that yet but I have an idea

    Maybe 50-60lbs….

    No way it weighs 50 lbs.

    Well it is
    the smallest unit of measurement practically possible.

    I’ll add the throat plate to that list, it’s too soft.

    Would you happen to know if an Osborne EB3 would work on it? I have one that hasn’t been used in years. Ben thinking about getting one of those two saws.

    I haven’t really needed my ts since I’ve been using the track saw. It sure is easier to run the saw c over a sheet then run a sheet through a saw.

    Looked it up on the Bosch site. 52lbs

    But its a well balanced 52lbs

    ThanX for that Eric, That would beat carrying around than my Craftsman that isn’t portable but light and a PITA to move around.

    I wonder if that’s shipping weight. On that video the dude pics it up with ease. He’s a big guy but 50+ lbs is still pretty heavy to make it look easy.

    While it does give you the ability to adjust the miter and set a positive stop to come back to that precise angle…it lays seems to loosen itself! I’ve been using my Kreg miter gauge over the stock version…too bad I can’t store the Kreg on the saw!
