    I wonder if our bosch buddies know? What was their tag again?

    Are you talking about Marco and Jenny?

    No, the customer service, or service center tag was the one I was thinking about. I can’t remember what it was.

    I actually never received it but it’s on my list of must haves. Amazon.ca wouldn’t ship after 3 months and I have never found one for a decent price (on sale) I am going to wait for the Christmas sales on amazon when you get $20 off bosch.

    I’m seeing a few placed that are listing the display as discontinued.

    What?? Oh no! I wonder why they would do that, Maybe there’s a new one coming out or something

    That would be neat if a new one was coming out – and Dustin is definitely right – most places are “out of stock” or have it listed as not available currently…

    Thanks Boyd. So, @boschtoolsservice Any info on the digital readout that no one seems to be able to get?

    The Side Ext has enough adjust ability to get it flat with the table. Here is the problem with the rear extension:

    Here is the fix, it’s pretty easy, just shim the front side of the mounting bracket down to lift up the back side. I needed two different thicknesses of washers side to side:

    And the results. Works much better but there is still to much flex for my liking at full extension. I put it 3/4 of the way out and use my bench as an out feed table after that.

    Dang I’m surprised ya had to do that, I’m a little disappointed that they’re not stronger too. But I guess that is a lot to ask for with a full sheet of ply, I understand what ya did perfectly and thanks for the info. I’ll be sure to check mine when I get them on

    That’s the only time it’s an issue is with a full sheet over 1/2″. For cutting just about everything else they are great and I truly believe a must have.

    The silly this is that I think it is somewhat of a ‘known’ or consistent issue – I remember reading about this issue elsewhere and Brad’s solution looks perfect.

    I put mine on yesterday and yep, I came across the same issues. I see the side one adjusts so you can get it up to level when it’s extended but then it’s about 1/8″ too high when retracted, No biggy though as ya just pull it out when ya use the saw even if ya don’t need it

    And the ‘C’ clips are weird too, The one that’s spose to stop it from sliding in all the way does nothing. Unless I have the end peice backwards but I put it with the lip facing inwards according to the directions. I might turn it around the other way, Also the one that’s spose to stop it from coming out doesn’t do anything either unless you unscrew the locking set screw all the way, Otherwise it does the stopping LOL. And it prevents ya from sliding it back in sometimes if the open area isn’t just right, It’ll hit the blue plastic body..

    The rear is the same as yours and I haven’t shimmed it yet but I will, I do like that it’s heavier duty though, And the ‘C’ clips seem to do their job on that one

    Overall I like them and glad I have them, I think they’ll be a great help

    Ya, you gotta wonder if they where designed for another saw or if they just where not thought out that well.

    I too am glad I have them but they are a head scratcher.

    I went back and looked at your pics and we both have the side mount main piece the same, With the lip towards the inside.

    I would have liked to see them made out of I-beam shaped material or something instead of round stock, I just don’t think ya get the same strength with round plus the bit of slop there is in the sleeve bracket doesn’t help

    I also noticed when I had the level.straight edge on it that the extension table piece isn’t perfectly flat with the rest of the table. It bows down a little even when closed, I didn’t check it open though

    Great review! I’ve got the same extensions for my 4100-09.

    @thedude306

    Thanks for the review. I always wondered if the extensions would be strong enough.

    I just order them.

    I am not a pro. But I play one at home.

    Glad you like it. Every time I use this saw I still enjoy it. It’s been a great tool.

    My only big thing I am going to do to it is to try and improve the DC by sealing up and closing off some areas.

    @thedude306 – do you move yours around enough that you really need to keep it on the gravity rise stand or have you considered building a mobile base for it? That could possibly make sealing it up a little easier

    it gets put away every couple of days.

    on edit:

    I think even putting a simple piece of plywood (or luan or something light) under the saw between the stand might work. As long as it doesn’t interfere with folding. I will have to have a look in the morning.

    I am sure that something can be made to capture the dust at the bottom. I have never measured it myself.

    I have plans to mount mine to a mobile base in my shop. I have even purchased additional rails to give me a larger RIP capacity.

    I have plans for this as well. And to be able to use the fence on the left side of the blade again. With my router insert it doesn’t allow me to any more.

    Another project for after Christmas! I would love to see any/all modifications you come up with.

    As far as putting a plate under the saw I like it, but here’s something to consider. The other day after cutting a lot I noticed the blade height was hard to adjust, So I looked under and the gears were full of sawdust. I couldn’t hardly turn the crank, I wonder if putting a plate under it would make it collect even more dust in the gears
