Jim, after 14 years of coming in to the bay...and more than a few of them after dark...we have local landmarks which we can line up to get in the bay safely without decorating the rocks with our bottom paint.

The other good thing is that it was high tide. The extra 12 feet of water makes all the difference!

Doesn't that look clever.

It seems to be a combination miter saw and mini table saw, kind of hard to tell without more information.

I don't know how big the blade is, but I guess it's big enough to cut wide trim.

oh'mike do you know anything else about this little guy?

I swear I lost at least two pounds getting that sucker on. No wonder they have so many people working in the foam store! Now I know why.
thats why it was cut small and should'nt you be naked in emperors new clothes

I always worry when they try to cram to many tools into one that accuracy and ease of use get sacrificed

No I don't---I saw pictures of it a couple of years ago and thought it was clever---I wonder about it's usefulness,however.

Looks like the depth of cut is not much.

Might be handy but I've never been happy with combination tools.

They seldom do a satisfactory job.

That is the first time I ever saw one, the blade on this one is 12 inches. I can see where it would come in good doing trim and such. It would be a lot better if it could be removed, I think. The down side to me, would be the possibility of not being able to see where I am cutting on the miter saw very well.

Mike and Tim: The smaller combination tools often have very little real value as such. I think they are aimed at the portable type tool buyer who might have a specialized use on a job site.

Even the very big combination tools - of which there are several - have their limitations. My biggest gripe with the big combo tools is the time it takes to change from one to the other.

I know the manufacturers all try to make the changes as simple and fast as possible, but still all those minutes catch up.

With my table saw, the most aggravating time waster is switching between a regular blade and the dado blade. It only takes a couple of minutes, but it seems that every time I need to use the saw (which is still every day) I always manage to have the wrong blade on there.

When we get to our next place I'm going to get a second table saw so I don't need to be changing blades constantly.

Sorry Jim I posted before yours came through.

OK, I was deceived by the picture. The blade didn't look to be that big. In that case, it may well be a more useful machine. I wonder if the mini table saw part on top doesn't lift up out of the way to use the miter saw?

Knowing Bosch, they probably have the tool so it is easily used. They aren't inclined to make useless tools.

if you stack one more tool on that one you could have your dado, that would be silly tho, it would need to be added to the side next to the bottle opener
