Summary: Operation of the saw is flawless, controls are in the right place. It's our 5th slide compound saw and it's second to the "Festool" which is almost twice the price. It's almost perfect out of the box, only a slight adjustment was necessary.
Summary: I was in need of a new miter saw since my old one was wearing out after several years of use. I compared every 12" saw out there and in the end liked all the features this one had to offer. Up front bevel control is awesome. I use this saw in my woodworking shop and it is a very accurate saw. I have been using it for 1 month now and am happy with my purchase every day when I use it. You definetely can,t go wrong buying bosch tools.
Summary: The saw will not cut square on both sides of the fence. The blade is .025 out of parallel to the glide path. Cannot be corrected as far as I can tell. I have followed the instructions in the users guide to no avail. You can square the glide path to the fence or you can square the blade to the fence but not both. I will need to contact customer service to see if I am missing something.
Summary: I purchased this saw because I wanted the best, knowing that it will probably be the last miter/chop/trim/slide saw that I would ever need. I am not a professional woodworker/carpenter by any means ---- but I have been in the building materials/ contractor sales business for well over 35 years, so I am familiar with many of the tool brands available.
Summary: Build this saw 2 years ago and I build my garage with it what a charm it was to cut all those roof truss... My dad wanted to borrow it on the long term and I said no ... now he want one too. If you were waiting on a saw to buy do not wait anymore and go buy one now!! You wont regret it.
Summary: If you are looking for a great saw and price is not an issue, I would highly recommend this saw. The construction and features make this saw well worth the money.It is easy to use and the angles are very easy to change. Although I loved my DeWalt saw, there is no comparison.
