About This Product

The Bosch-exclusive Axial-Glide offers wider cross-cuts, enhanced alignment and smooth glide for the life of the tool. The Bosch miter saw's 15 Amp motor delivers no-load speeds of 4,000 RPM for quick, accurate cuts in many materials. For added convenience and versatility, the saw is compatible with a variety of 12 In. blades and it has a clear lower guard to provide unobstructed cut-line visibility. The GCM12SD provides easy adjustments with upfront bevel and miter controls and detents at common angles. The saw's all-metal bevel lock lever and range selector are located up front to make bevel adjustments easy. The Bosch GTA3800 Folding-Leg Miter Saw Stand with Wheels features an industrial-tough design and is an indispensable accessory for mounting miter saws on job sites and moving between work areas without dismounting the saw. This light and strong stand fits most miter saws on the market, including the Bosch 12-in., 10-in. and 8-1/2-in. single- and dual-bevel miter saws - as well as competitor saws. The stand has smooth end rollers that are modifiable in height to match the height of the user's miter saw. Adjustable rails on the compact miter-saw stand hold workpieces up to 16 Ft., and they have stops to set up for duplicate cutting. The adjustable leveling foot works on uneven surfaces. The stand is equipped with transport wheels for easily moving it from location to location without removing the saw.

      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.

        Q:What is the footprint of this saw? I am building a miter saw table for it, so I need to know the dimensions to be certain it will be a good fit.

        Answer This Question

        A:  One very important measurement you need to know is the base height for your miter table to match. This is what I struggle to find online. I did find 3 and 3/4" from the bottom to the saw to the flat seat of the saw. Problem for my 3 and 5/8" table.

            Bought this saw a few months ago for a home renovation project. Since then I’ve come to a few conclusions about this saw. This saw is well packaged and easily recyclable material. Heavier weight gives it a more in a shop feel than a jobsite saw. Amazing ergonomics and powerful. Easily mitered 6x6 PT posts in 2 cuts. One gripe is the safety on the trigger could be easier to use. All around amazing saw and glad to have it in my arsenal.

              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

                  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)

                      Not the same saw as the demo unit or picture
                      This was my dream saw. After saving for a while, I finally decided to get this saw after playing around with the sample saw at Home Depot. This saw provides a great reach and glide with the axial glide system so I’m able to keep it against the wall and save a lot of room. The glide was smooth and I didn’t feel any play when sliding back and forth, but I could see an issue if you’re forcing the saw through a cut. The biggest problem I have with this saw is that Bosch made a lot of changes to the saw and it does not show in the product picture OR the sample product at the store. The picture you see is the older model, the newer model is missing a chunk of metal from the fence (both sides), missing the button for the detent lock, and they changes the safety switch from the handle. The last part is the biggest issue for me since I have small hands, the handle itself is pretty large already, but having the safety switch underneath the handle means I have to slide my hand up and down in order to get the saw to start. My wife has to use both hands since she cant reach at all! Way to go Bosch! Again, I think for a $700 saw I think it should include at least a laser (I know the European models do) and a locking clamp. Sadly, this saw is going back to Home Depot and I will be picking up a different saw. Shame, I had such high hopes for this saw.

                        This review is for the stand Bosch T4B
                        Although it came with no instructions it was easy to assemble. I returned Makita’s most expensive stand and got this one. This one is the perfect one to get the job done. Built very tough. It is absolutely worth the price.

                          The best thing that sets this saw over others is the axial glide mechanism, which is simply put superb. The glide mechanism unlike the steel bar extensions which as they accumulate dust/grime get more difficult to slide. The glide mechanism also saves you about 12 inches in front to back space. Additionally, it has extension wings that come out on both sides which do not come with most saw on the market. I have the gen 2 version of this model, which differs from original mainly in the adjustable fence that has a cut-out in the middle for the hold down clamp to come tru. The hold down clamp is simply put disappointing and useless. The very first upgrade i made was purchasing a better blade like a 80-100 tooth crosscut blade (freud/diablo). Second was making a zero clearance insert plate out of plywood. Finally, a mobile miter saw station. Dust collection definitely needs an upgrade like a larger rubber dust chute. Does NOT come with a laser line or shadow line, unless you upgrade it after purchase. The saw needed some minor adjustments in the 0 degree detent which wasn’t difficult. What would make this saw better would be to: better hold down clamp, better dust collection, a shadow line for blade cutline indicator.
