Q:Does anybody have problems with the platform not flat? Just bought one and the right platform was not flat. It dropped down 0.63mm. I went to the store and brought two more saws home and all are the same. Middle platform is flat but the two sides are off.

            I purchased the saw and stand for my small workspace. The saw came all setup for use. The stand assembly instructions made it easy to assemble. I used it the next day to make picture frame step using composite deck material. Worked flawlessly.

            Best compound miter saw I’ve had. The arm movement is so smooth. It cut perfect right out of the box. I suggest getting the Bosch stand as well.

            Great miter saw
            Overall this is a great miter saw. I do have some complaints though. First of all, it was square right out of the box. There was minimal setup involved. The gliding mechanism didn't need adjusting. It was very smooth. There is one issue I am noticing. The cuts aren't clean. The blade makes a weird sound. As soon as I hear the sound, I know the cut's going to be off. The blade seems to wobble. The funny thing is that it doesn't always happen. I will make some adjustments to see if I can correct the issue. Also, I knocked off a star because, for the price of this saw you'd think they could include a stop on the extension wings. This saw is replacing an old 10" craftsman miter saw. The only thing that saw had that this one doesn't is the axial glide. I'd expect Bosch to have thought about including that and not make it an after purchase accessory.

              Cheap metal for locking mechanism.
              I have a custom woodworking shop and have used DeWalt and Hitachi sliding compound saws daily for the last 6-7 years without any major issues. Decided to go with the Bosch this time because of the reviews and the sliding mechanism they designed. We only had the saw for 10 days and the knob that locks down your angle in the front completely snapped and split the metal base where the boards sit. Did not over tighten, it snapped with just being snug. Wouldn't recommend for more than a hobbyist tool

                Manufacturing Error
                I would still recommend the saw stand I think. Problem is step one with assembly, the holes on one side of a tube don't match up with the other so a bolt has no way to go through in a perpendicular manner, the bolt obviously cannot go through at an angle. I am disappointed that I have to get a drill out and drill a hole correctly and it will be half drilling into a hole and half out of it which is not easy to do and will not be as strong. Is this stuff really that hard to produce. Is there any quality control?

                  Shadow line LED for Bosch miter saw
                  Bosch miter saw is almost perfect except it misses shadow line or laser. To build one, you need Dewalt N030317 Work Light, 5V AC to DC converter at least 0.45mA (1.5"L x 0.77"W x 0.6"H), a switch (or one from Dewalt Miter Saw Power Supply N078832)
