Have decided to go for the Bosch GCM8 SJL with the ~GTA 2600 stand. The package is £350 at aximinster but have found it for £315 at www.rsis.co.uk.

Am going down to my local tool shop today though to see if they can do price match.

Would be interested in peoples thoughts in the stand though?

In my space limited and overcrowded workshop I will be looking for a mobile solution for mine, possibly with fold out extension table wings. :eusa-think:
