I just purchased my first table saw, a Bosch 4100-09. I was debating between the Dewalt portable or the Bosch portable. I am very limited for space in my garage so that is why I opted for a portable TS. Obviously, I would have loved to get a good cabinet saw, but I am hoping in the future I will have space for one. Anyway, I do have a few other Bosch tools and I really like them plus the Bosch gets good reviews and the box store had 11% rebate. I am still in process of setting it up. So far I really like the gravity stand. I just bolted the saw to the stand. Now, I am wondering what accessories I really should get to help with properly setting it up and for future setups for different cuts. I understand this is a question on what I really plan on doing with the TS too. First, I plan on building some shadow boxes and then possibly a nightstand. I am just looking for some opinions that is all.
1. Would digital gauges really be worth it or just a good quality steel scale be suffice?
2. Zero clearance inserts, if so which ones do you use?
3. Saw blades, which do you recommend?
