Customer Questions & Answers

This saw has no light no laser??

Asked by: RAT
That is correct. I believe this feature is the only thing keeping this saw from being 5 star worthy.

Is there an adjustment for the depth of cut, for such purposes as making a dado or kerf cut?

Asked by: Anonymous
Yes. There is a depth stop that can be used.

Where is this saw manufactured?

Asked by: Anonymous
This product is made in China, as most power tools are (even the professional grade). I especially like the Bosch official response. I know that the quality aspect is very important, however Chinese products have consistently not lived up to the standards of other countries such as USA, Germany, or even Japan. For me, I do expect quality in my tools, but the fact that the production work has been removed from the United States is upsetting. For this reason, I personally shop for products made in the USA. I expect that the US jobs aspect is the reason this question was asked and is frequently asked about almost every tool.

15 Amp Corded 12 in. Dual-Bevel Glide Miter Saw with 60-Tooth Blade is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 241.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent bit of kit! I have a older Bosch 3914 that still does the job but having a 10" blade greatly restricts my ability to do built up crown moulding with butter cuts. I too depend on my tools to do the job and consider each purchase as an investment in my company. I finally made the jump to this saw. There's a learning curve as you read the manual (Bosch manuals are among the best since they are written by humans to be read by humans) and experiment with the various controls. All the locks are red for easy identification. Do several different cuts before you start into doing any production cuts. Before you do any production cuts make sure the saw is spot on. Get out your combination square and make sure the table is true to the blade, etc so you will get the highest quality cuts. This saw enables the beginner to make master carpenter cuts because of the ability to set the saw up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Small or Large Job After doing research for my first ever miter saw, I came to this Bosch Dual Bevel Glide Miter Saw for my final purchase. What sold me on this saw was not just one feature but many and with continual use, other features will probably stand out as well. Pros: First, the dual bevel feature and the way the saw glides on each cut was a must to have when working with limited space. Thus, because of this system the dual bevel operation could possibly be the most accurate cutting miter saw on the market. Second, the extension on the saw that increased the work surface was exactly what I was looking for so that I could mount it on a mobile cart and still stay compact. The left and right hand safety trigger was not a selling point for me, but now after using the saw it is a must for work flow ergonomics and safety. The versatility of a 12" blade to cut large 4' x 4' and the adjustability in about every area of the saw allows the user to always have consistent cuts. The fence has 2 parts, the upper and the lower one that is connected to the base of the work area. This allows you to extend the upper fence when needed and still have a narrow lower secure backing that allows for more accurate non-binding cuts. The fence measurement lines make rough cutting a whole lot faster than marking it with a sharpie pen. Cons: So far I have only found two minor ones. Depending on each person's setup, the dust collection system is a unique size and does have to have an adapter to fit any non Bosch shop vacuum. Not an issue yet and it might not be one, but.... I wish the saw came with a zero tolerance strong plastic insert. For the adjustable one that comes with the saw is nice and closes the gap REALLY well, but could be an issue when cutting smaller more fragile material. I would recommend anyone to buy this saw novice or pro. It has excellent value for all the engineering that went into make this miter saw. If you want your saw to last and still function like the day you bought it, this saw is for you.

I had been considering this saw for some time and when my existing 10 inch compound miter saw went out, I picked one up at my local HD. I am very impressed so far. The saw cuts nicely, has a great capacity, and I really appreciate that I can put it right up against the wall in my basement shop without having to worry about the sliding rails sticking out the back. This is hands down the best miter saw I have ever used and is significantly better than other saws at the same price point. The dual hinge mechanism for the sliding functionality is great. It operates super smoothly and seems well built. There is a locking lever in the back that keeps the saw either fully extended or retracted. It is simple and easy to reach so, I keep the "sliding" retracted unless I need the extra capacity that it offers. All the levers for the table extensions, fence and miter operate quickly and easily. In my time using power tools I have found that many accidents take place when you don't take time to setup the tool for the cut you are making. When it is quick and easy to adjust the tool for your operation, you will generally make the necessary adjustments for a safe cut. The compound miter adjustment only bevels to the left by default and has a stop at zero degrees so that it is dead simple to get it back to perpendicular to the table. If you need to bevel to the right, just turn a simple knob and the saw tilts to the right. There are just two things I would like to see improved on this saw. First, I would really like to see a laser included by default. Bosch sells a replacement arbor washer with a laser but that only activates when the blade is spinning which doesn't help you line up your workpiece without turning the saw on and making adjustments while a 12" blade is spinning in your face. Second, the dust collection is flimsy and fragile. The small shroud collects very little dust even compared to the budget $200 saw I replaced. In addition, the dust collection shroud is flimsy and easily broken. less than 10 cuts in, I had a small off-cut fly back and break the shroud in half. I consider the whole dust collection setup on this saw to be it's greatest weakness. Overall, I am very happy with this purchase and would recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful design Zero clearance feature makes this one of the best Miter saws. I cut all kinds of wood including 82" hard maple and it handles everything I can throw at it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great The 12" saw is great! I have an older 10" which I really like, but the new 10" saws are having some problems cutting straight. (at least 50% of them from what I have seen on other sites). Bosch has great features and functions really well for the general contractor. I use it for everything inside and out and am completely satisfied. It is heavy and the dust control isn't the best, but that doesn't really bother me. Great saw.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beautiful. Engineering Masterpiece. Amazing Form Factor. The Porsche of Miter Saws. Won't Cut Straight. This was my dream saw. The first one wouldn't cut straight, leaving teeth-marks down the length of the board. I calibrated it. I tried to get it fixed at an authorized service center to no avail. I exchanged it for a second saw. Same exact problem! Called Bosch. No help. I'll be returning this one too. I hated to do this--it's like trading a Porsche for a Volvo--but I bought a nice Dewalt and, though it's not pretty and takes up the majority of my two-car garage, it cuts perfectly. I'm so flippin' bummed. 2 saws , 2 setups, 2 calibrations, and 3 blades later, I've had it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best saw I've used This is the best saw I have ever used! The glide is super smooth, even when cutting on a bevel where other saws may start to bind. I love the gravity rise stand as well, setting up is a breeze. After using this saw, I can't go back to any other!

I've had it about a week and have been using it regularly; I never knew how much I needed this saw! It was dead-on accurate right from the box. Packaging was good and there was no damage in shipping. I've used it to crosscut both wide boards and thick boards. I also ordered the laser disk. Although other reviewers had trouble with the blade not tightening with the laser disk in place, I had no trouble with that and it is operating as intended. I notice there is a washer on the right side of the blade, so maybe Bosch responded to the complaints and modified the saw to accommodate the laser.
