Bosch Axial Glide GCM12SD

16 September 2013
  • Summary: After evaluating internal components in the motor and glide system, Tom Hintz at NewWoodworker.com resolves that "the way the Axial-Glide System is designed and built all but insures a very long life in even the busiest of shops." Likewise, few owner reviews mention durability issues; however, many find the factory blade to be of poor quality (a common issue among miter saws).
  • Pros: Gliding action is smooth and vibration-free, Compact design saves shop space, Well built and durable
  • Cons: No built-in laser, 65-pound weight and no carrying handles limits portability, Shorter one-year warranty

Bosch Glide Miter Saw Review – GCM12SD

Pro Power Tool Guide
7 November 2011
  • Excerpt: OK, it is finally time to write the Bosch Glide Saw review.  I have had this saw for about two months and had plenty of time to play with it.  I have been dreading writing this up.  Not because I don’t like this saw, but because I love this saw and want to talk about everything on this saw.  So I knew it would be a long review and I hate writing.  I would rather be building something or playing with some new power tool.

Expert Review

Tool Snob
29 November 2010
  • Excerpt: If there ever was a tool that sucked the oxygen out of the room, it's the Bosch Axial Glide Miter Saw . It's crazy, but everyone is talking about it. Even our non-tool friends are asking, 'hey have you seen that saw with the Bionicle arms?" Until recently, we had actually only seen it on paper.
