Why wasn't the Bosch considered?

I didn't like the linkage that they used. So many moving parts and nooks and crannies that can collect dust and bind up or worse pinch your fingers in.

That is only for their glider. They make a slider just like any other SMS.

Not sure I can relate to this. There are 4 moving parts, and the permanently sealed bearings seem much less likely to become a problem than rails that can get dust and junk drug in and out of them. Pinching your fingers is feasible, but I can't imagine why you'd have a hand milling around the hinges while you're operating the machine.

Where can I purchase a shroud like the one in your picture?

I went through the same choice and purchased the Dewalt 780, and if you watch for sales they included a base for FREE which was a $200 value like Big Dave posted in his picture.

Retired VW Tech, performance boats until 9/17 STROKE! Now making sawdust to keep busy!

I own the DeWalt, but I have used the Bosch when the TechShop was still open. I did not like the thumb/trigger thing on the Bosch at all.

Also, I think the dust collection on my DeWalt is slightly better if I hook a shop vac to the outlet. It gets more than 50% of the dust from my experience.
