    How long does it take to respond to an email?

    Good point! It doesn’t really take that long.

    I would have to say back when the site seemed to be more closely monitored, the redemptions were in the 4 to 6 week time frame. I have had a couple come immediately, but most were in that range.

    In my opinion, if you need it right away, buy it, If it is more of a want than a need, order it.

    I think you are spot on Kurt with the redemption history and whether you need it right away or not. Good point.

    I had 2 12″ boxes stolen in the last couple years off jobs,

    Do you have any insurance against stolen work tools and materials?

    With all your posting Bill, I wondered what you might be looking at. Now I know. Nice tool! Make some sawdust.

    I plan to. It is a very nice tool.

    I do, but it is cash value and I have a $2500 deductible. It takes a lot to get to the deductible and then I would only get a couple hundred bucks for a saw. Two claims in a couple of years and your insurance goes up about 25% for 4 years. We pay over 10K for our insurance with our developments and everything, so unless a claim is really big, it is not worth doing. To me a claim would need to be close to the 10K to make it worth it because it could cost me a lot more than that in the long run. I think I have only had one claim ever.

    BINGO Big thank you to the BTP Team yesterday I received my 12″ Glide. I am extremely happy to say the least. Again Thank you to al at BTP that made this happen.

    This will probably be my next redemption. I had 2 12″ boxes stolen in the last couple years off jobs, I still have 2 but it never seems like we have one where we need it and keep running to another job to grab one.

    I may look at the 10″ to save weight however. It is not all that often we really need the capacity of the 12″ and it would be nice to save the weight since the saw will not be permanently set in one location.

    I just took a look at the weights of the 10″ and the 12″ saws. I was very mistaken thinking that the 10″ saw would save weight moving in and out of jobsites. The stated weight of the 12″ Axial Glide is 65 pounds and the stated weight of the 10″ is 64 pounds. Virtually no difference in weight. At that point, the 12″ would be the way to go.

    Strange , I thought it would have a larger difference in weight , yeah I guess better have more cut capacity especially since it’s only a pound different

    Yeah, same as my hurricane coverages LOL. All of them have a 5% damage deductables. So a 400K rental if hit by a hurricane a tree falls on the roof blows down fences power lines down flooded floors, has a 20K deductable. Last hurricane came by I have four properties with substantial damages, ranging 15K to 20K, most of them a little under the deductable, so nothing was covered. but because I did reported them and they had an adjuster came by, they raised my premiums on all of them, even on properties where I didn’t report damages.

    I did also. I figured the 10″ would have a savings of 10 pounds or so.

    I recall looking at the weight difference between the 10 and 12in glides, and it is a mere pound or so.

    May be they are the same saw LOL?

    I know the Bosch 4.5″ and 5″ angle grinders are the same exact grinder except the size of the guard itself.

    The 7 and 9 inch grinders are like that. I think the amperage on the 9in is higher though and probably its motor inside what seems almost identical housing, if not the same.

    You would think there would be alittle difference in weight between the new sizes of saws. But since there isn’t the 12″ would be the way to go.

    I never knew that about the grinders ,

    I was only referring to the Bosch GWS18V-45 and Bosch GWS18V-50. When I was deciding between buying one vs the other I noticed they looked the same, they have the same specs. I then found the exploded parts diagrams for both and the part numbers are the same except for the guards. Strange. I emailed Bosch tech support and they told me these are identical except for the guards.

    At the time the 4.5″ was $99 and the 5″ was $130. I can buy a 5″ guard for $9.95. So I bought a 4.5″ plus a 5″ guard instead, came out to $109 for the grinder and two guards. I haven’t used it much because the battery doesn’t last long enough unless I am doing quick one off type grinding or cutting.

    Ok so if I bought the bigger guard I’ll be able to use 5 inch disc’s 🤷‍♂️
