great for small shop

Tinker, Bosch US
26 June 2015
  • Summary: I bought this saw a few months back and it is perfect for my small shop. With a few minor adjustments out of the box I was making straight cuts in no time. With my small hobby shop, space is a premium and with the glide design I am able to put this saw right up against the wall.

  • Summary: I am glad I waited in purchasing a sliding compound miter saw. The biggest selling point was that it fits on my 24" standard depth workbench without poking into the wall with rail systems of other saws.

Great Saw, needs a dual laser feature

  • Summary: I love this saw. The axial glide arm is effortless to use. It was dead on accurate out of the box. My only wish is that it had a dual laser line for making super accurate cuts on crown molding. I would love to see a laser attachment that wasn't a washer. ..

  • Summary: I purchased this saw after several months of research. I chose this saw based on overall reviews and price. Once I had the saw home, I set about checking calibration. I was very disappointed to find that the calibration was not right.

What? No Laser

  • Summary: Great design, however I would expected there to be a laser or an add on accessory laser available. For this design and price point, I would have spent a little more just for a laser guide

Love that it fits up against the wall.

  • Summary: This could be the very best saw money can buy. Up front controls, easy to adjust, built in extension wings and very accurate. The axial glide is tremendous. However, the lack of a built in laser or LED blade shadow light, the only real drawback with this saw, makes spending the extra money hard to...

  • Summary: bought this last week from home depot, finally got it setup on the T4B stand very nice but couldn't calibrate the 0 degree bevel, turns out the aluminum base is machined wrong, I will be returning it. For $600 I or anyone would assume this would never leave the plant where its made!!

Initial reactions after setup and first use

7 October 2014
  • Summary: I bought this saw on the basis of the Bosch name, the cross-cut capacity and the zero rear clearance requirement. I was my intention to mount the saw to a bench equipped with extension fences and a measuring system.
