I am absolutely through with this pile of junk. After a year and a half of giving it a try I'm finished. Recently tried to install a kitchen and trim some openings with flat beaded casing and this thing has so much blade wobble, all of it came out looking 70% at best. Totally unacceptable. Good thing it was paint grade... totally embarrassing to bring this to a job and expect perfect performance. In the past month I have purchased three different blades for this saw: 1: Freud 8" miter blade. 2: Tenryu 8" miter blade 3: CMT commercial finish blade. This problem is NOT THE BLADE ITS THE SAW. Not for precision work at ALL. Might make a good saw for cutting 2x4 studs. Just might.
However, the angle setting was off bu a degree or so. When I went to adjust the setting, one og the four screws that secure the platform to the body of the machine would not loosen up. The other three were very tight, but I managed to loosen them without damaging the heads of the screws. The fourth was a different story. The head (phillips) was a bit damaged.
While I do not know this machine's history, it has the feel of a refurbished (angle adjustment) machine that was not properly inspected before being sold. I could probably drill out the screw and use the other three (the machine seems well enough built), but that would be a whole nother adventure.
I'm going to cut my losses (over $250) and just fire sale the thing on Clist. Tempus fugit. This seems more of a dealer problem than a Bosch problem.
I hope this is helpful.
As for the operation of the saw.... no problems at all. I went through the initial set up of the saw. It cuts very "true". I put a Freud blade on it and have not experienced any wobble. It has plenty of power to cut trim, hardwood fillers, even enough clearance to cut 3 1/4 crown. Overall... great saw.
I also bought the Bosch stand with legs (not the gravity rise one).
The Bosch appears to be very well built. The only negatives I can see is that the slide seems a bit rough, as if there isn't enough ball bearings in it. But it doesn't affect the accuracy.
I went down to my workshop and compared it to my Makita 12". The Makita was a bit smoother, but not much.
The other complaint is that the carrying handle gets in the way of the dust bag, or a vacuum hose. I have mine hooked up to my Festal vac.
I'm glad I bought both the saw and the stand. It will outlast me!
Top international reviews
Comparing to other saws in its class (Makita or Hitachi 8 1/2 inch mitre saws), pros are:
* Very good build quality (Hitachi's latest generation received tons of bad reviews)
* Very good extension support (much better than Makita's "bare bars")
* Large bevel lock lever
* Carrying handle
* Dust collection shroud
But it does lack a few bells and whistles, such as:
* LED light
* Laser guide
* Soft start
* Electric brake
These are not that important to me, but may be a deal breaker for someone (a picky person, I guess?)
1st compound miter saw I have owned. It is light, mobile, easy to use and gets the job done. 8 and 1/2 inch blade posses some restrictions to size of lumber.
Disappointed with the local delivery personnel, left the saw sitting on my step!
Only no Lazer, like on my last saw.
