    Brad, like your reviews. Wished I would have waited one more year, picked up on the dewalt last year. Nice, but really like what I hear and see with the Bosch.

    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

    Are you using any dust collection (vac) with it now?

    I think that’s critical if you enclose it.

    If you enclose the bottom, you need to have good airflow at the opposite side of the hose connection. Making sure this airflow passes over the gears will prevent the buildup you experienced.

    When I built my router table, I had heavy dust build up in the corners and on the opposite side of the dust collection port. I drilled a couple of holes opposite the dust port and solved 90% of the problem.

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

    I am just here for l-boxx porn.

    @thedude306 have you thought about making a zero clearance insert for this guy yet?

    He said on page one that he made one out of plywood.

    Yup, and I now have a bunch in mdf for a couple angles. Once you make one you can just whip them out on a router table. I need to experiment with some holes in them for better DC

    No DC yet, So if you enclose yours with a bottom plate would you add a second suction in that area or would you rely on the main blade shroud to suck it all up?

    I see what yer saying, Good idea. An intake port

    well I finally got sick of all the dust on the floor and whipped this out today. I can’t tell you if it works any better as my big DC is still in saskatoon. On the shop vac it just sits on the plate instead of falling to the floor. I think it will help a lot once connected to 1500CFM.

    Is enclose the motor with all the sawdust a good idea? My saw is open bottom and in the yearly clean out I blow a lot of sawdust out of the brush area, but on the other hand wood isn’t really abrasive.

    Nice mod Brad! Are you hooking up both dust ports? I know if I connect my shop vac to the dust port on my baby Bosch TS it can barely keep up with heavy cutting. If I hook the shop vac up to the big table saw in the shop that has the bottom port the vac doesn’t even come close to keeping up….I have been sliding a plastic mortar pan under to catch saw dust…

    The whole hope is that the DC keeps all the dust out of the motor and gives it a place to go… down the DC. I will keep monitoring it to see what kind of build up it gets. I was very surprised how much dust is packed in the motor/housing without the panel. I can’t seeing it being worse unless you don’t turn on the DC with it.

    Chad, my plan is to use both. I have a Y to go to the other port. I think it will work slick but until I get the big DC I won’t know.

    Oh, here I found a picture. I will use this on both the router table and the TS.

    Nice. Once you have that hooked up to your big DC I doubt you will have a problem with dust building up on the motor.

    That’s what I am hoping. I looked at the router motor and I think the TS motor is better sealed. Time will tell I guess.

    I have seen a guy in the web that took spray foam to his. I haven’t read it failing. It was pretty ugly but worked.

    Although not a bosch Acc I wanted to put this in here, because it should be:

    Home made router table insert

    That is wayyy cool. I have the old 4000, but it is similar. The housing…boy the housing is just destroyed. That’s the only problem I have had with that saw…minus the bearings that go on everyone elses.

    Nice work Brad. I live my 4100, but the dust collection could use an upgrade.

    Did you ever hook your DC to the port on the back of the saw or just a shop vac? I’m curious what kind of improvement this will net.

    Has anyone noticed the dust collection on the demo gts4100 (the Reaxx)?

    What about it? I haven’t specifically noted it, but the rest of the saw seems to be similar to the 4100-09 saw.

    Not commenting – asking.

    With Dust collection becoming such an important feature, I wonder if they improved it over the 4100

    I noticed the Ridgid r4516 (the little one with built in wheels) has a decent dust shroud underneath

    Bosch should be able to blow that little $300 saw out of the water

    It helps but it just goes from really bad to bad. I hope this helps more.

    I also have an above blade guard with built in DC (part number 2 610 018 328 Protective Cover) coming from the UK. It’s for the boschGTS 10 XC saw but fits on the riving knife so I think it can be made to work. The two piece abortion of a guard on the 4100 is well… brutal.
