Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Works great but right fence has warped My CM 12 is about a year old and has worked extremely well to date. Recently the right hand fence has begun to warp. I am unsure of why. Saw still works very well except now I am unable to make 45 degree cuts on the from upper left to lower right because the blade guard now gets in the way. Otherwise the saw is wonderful for making clean, smooth cuts. August 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Accurate and a Great Value This is not the saw to buy if you're cutting very wide boards or large molding. However, if you're a typical woodworker like myself, this is one of the best values out there. The fence was dead square, and all of the adjustments were accurate right out of the box. The dust collection is much better than most of the competitors (single-bevel non-sliders). The only con I've found is that it could come with a higher quality blade. I've yet to come across a miter saw that includes a decent blade. If accuracy is more important than features, than this is the saw for you. October 17, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Really nice solid saw. Out of the box, the standard you would expect from Bosch. Saw needed some adjustment not perfectly square out of the box. Made the adjustment and cuts real nice. Changed out the blade that came with it for an 80 tooth blade and the cuts are spot on. Powerful sturdy saw. A little pricey for the amount I use it, but you get what you pay for. Overall a solid saw. May 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great quality saw Ok, had to review this since on one else has. I shopped around a long long time trying to decide what I wanted. This is a no gimmick quality saw. I went with it over the Dewalt double bevel. Other than extremely large crown molding you'd probably never use the double bevel function anyways. The sliders are great but they are heavy heavy machines. The are also big and hard to fit through doors. The machining on this saw is top notch. The portability is great too. It did take a few minor adjustments to get it lined up perfectly but the manual provides instructions on how to calibrate it. It wasn't bad out of the box but the 45 bevel was slightly off. Just unlock a lock nut and turn a screw. The fence and the 90 degree cut angle was spot on. I did read one complaint on the net about the detents being off. That part is adjustable to and you need to lock it down after it hits the detent setting. Overall I am super happy and the machining on it is second to none. It really is a good buy. Read the manual and pick it up in the indicated locations and you'll be good to go. It slices 4x4's like butter. I might upgrade the blade down the line for finish work (comes with a 40 tooth) but for general board cutting it is just fine. October 22, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Excellent, CM12 has worked right out of the box. Very happy with performance. March 26, 2014
