    That skl is a nice looking table saw.
    But then again so is the Bosch reax

    Wouldn’t mind upgrading my old Mastercraft 🙁

    I’ve got an old Craftsman TS that has seen it’s fair share of wood go through it.

    However this is this is the first generation of either saw, i hope all the bugs have been worked out.

    There’s always a bug or two slipped through the crack, personally I’d wait half a year or so before buying a new release.

    Bosch has been making table saws for many years now. I would not be scard at all.

    this instagram short video really shows how well put together it is. this is a quality table saw, it just needs the reaaxxx tech in it.

    I’ve been using table saws regularly for 40 years without Reaxx. I still have all my digits. The extra expense is not needed if you are careful and respect the saw.

    I just want it for the just in case, as accidents can happen. I have a table saw and use it but the fear will always be there. I also want it for teaching friends how to use it and have a backup just in case.

    No there is no way we will ever be able to use the table saw without the reaxx in it. I feel like the next time I use one I will hack a digit off. RW you must get the reaxx saw or face loosing a digit or three.

    Once a saw has Reaxx then operators will begin to get careless knowing that the tech will back them up. I sill think Reaxx is aimed at companies looking to reduce their liability in case of an accident. It will become “mandatory” in the sense of if you don’t have it and an accident occurs you will be held liable because you did not do everything possible to prevent it.

    How about that feature on a gas chainsaw in the future?

    Hey what ever makes things safer can’t be a bad thing. There are people who drive for years with no tickets or accidents. Then there will be some who get tickets and accidents

    Like most things, the user has to determine whether the benefit justifies the increased cost. I think that most old guys like me, who have been around these machines forever, would say no. But I’m not against the option.

    I am with Mark on this. I think it is a great technology that will serve some people very well but I don’t see me buying one.

    i don’t see myself buying one right now, i can wait till the price drops a bit on it. However going forward, i really can’t see having more safety features a bad thing. I mean look at air bags, when you need them, you need them.

    LOL! the next movie will be the almost texas chainsaw hotdog massacre.

    Back on track about the skill saw, pro tool reviews did a table saw shoot out and rated this saw better than the 4100.

    For the overall it was behind the 4100 but the REAXX, 4100 and Skilsaw Worm Drive Table Saw were leading the top. I’ve said this in the another topic but I think there’s some bias. DirtyWhiteBoy brought it up.

    My impressions of playing with a display model of the Skilsaw was pretty good. It seemed like a proper improved version of the Bosch GTS1031.

    Well once again I’ve scored a wonderful opportunity to review the new and improved Skilsaw Wormdrive Table saw.
    More power, larger capacity, rack and pinion fence and a rolling stand.

    Good to see tools actually going to pros that can give an honest review Mark. Will be looking forward to your review.
