Compact Axial-Glide System Creates Smooth, Controlled Cuts
Bosch's patented Axial-Glide System is designed to create smooth cuts and ensure you have complete control over the saw's cutting action. Axial-Glide doesn't use a traditional rail setup, so this saw takes up to 12 inches less workspace than many competitors.

Blade Compatibility and Powerful Motor for Versatile Performance
In addition, this Bosch miter saw's 15 amp motor delivers no-load speeds of 3,800 rpm for quick, accurate cuts in many materials. For further convenience and versatility, the saw is compatible with a variety of 12-inch blades, and it has a clear lower guard to provide unobstructed cut-line visibility.

Flexible Setup with Large Capacity
With a 14-inch horizontal capacity, a 6-1/2-inch vertical capacity for material against the fence or base, and a 6-1/2-inch crown capacity against the fence at 45 degrees, this miter saw is useful for a variety of cuts.

Additionally, the saw features two sliding integrated base extensions that provide adjustable support for materials measuring up to 40 inches long.

Quick-Release Squarelock Fences Provide Accurate, Easy Alignment
High-precision, trademarked Squarelock fences come aligned at 90-degree angles to the saw's table and require no adjustments. These quick-release fences utilize a one-touch lock/unlock feature that allows you to easily slide each fence into position for accurate material alignment.

Adjustable Miter Detents and Easy-Access Detent Override
An etched stainless steel miter scale with large, easy-to-read markings lets you accurately set cuts measuring up to 52 degrees to the left and up to 60 degrees to the right. Common angles are easy to set with miter detents at 0, 15, 22.5, 31.6, and 45 degrees on the right and left, and 60 degrees on the right.

A push-button miter detent override helps ensure fine miter angle adjustment for precise cuts. This thumb-actuated control is located at the front of the saw for easy access.

Up-Front Bevel Controls, Marked Detents, and Roof Pitch Angles
The saw's all-metal bevel lock lever and range selector are located up front to make bevel adjustments easy.

The bevel capacity allows you to cut at angles ranging from 0 to 47 degrees to the left and the right, while marked detents and roof pitch angles make the most common angles easy to set. The saw features bevel detents at 0, 33.9, and 45 degrees for both left- and right-facing cuts, and it includes a high visibility dual-bevel scale.

Ergonomic Grip and Dust Capture for User Comfort
Weighing only 65 pounds, this compact miter saw is easy to maneuver. It features a large, ergonomic handle with a soft grip for user comfort, and it offers an ambidextrous trigger setup for both right- and left-handed users.

To further ensure user comfort, this Bosch saw's combination dust chute and vacuum adaptor provides dust capture for a cleaner work environment and improved visibility.

Like all Bosch power tools, the 12-Inch Dual-Bevel Glide Miter Saw is backed by a one-year limited warranty.

What's in the Box
Miter saw, 12-inch 60T blade, tool-free material clamp, blade wrench, 90-degree combination dust chute elbow and vacuum adaptor, and dust bag.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Machine June 28 2014

Assembly was straight forward. Accuracy out of the box was excellent with no additional tweaks required. The articulating arm is a huge benefit in a small shop space. The only draw back is the weight but it is some thing I can live with.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Great Saw! March 30 2014
Verified Purchase
If I could have given this product 4-7/8 stars I would have! This saw runs super smooth and is very precise. There was very little set up and it was bang on from the factory. The amazon price on this saw was very low compared to elsewhere but I had to wait a while as it was not in stock the day I purchased it. It was however, worth the wait!
My only complaint with this saw is that it does not have built in work lights like its number one competitor, (in my opinion) Milwaukee. I almost went that route, however I just liked the smooth action of this saw as well as the Bosch T4B Gravity Rise stand you can match to it. (An Awesome stand - a must have with this saw)
This will be the last mite saw I buy and I know I will appreciate it every time I use it, but, I know there will be times when I miss having those LEDs illuminating the cut line. Come on Bosch, this is an easy fix!

4.0 out of 5 stars virtually no dust collection....oh, and its heavy Feb. 12 2014
so i replaced a 10 year old Makita 10" with a 12". I chose this saw after much research. i had seen a few reviews stating the dust collection was lacking and the saw was heavy. thankfully im only a hobbies so i dont have to move it around very much but the dust collection is a problem. i dont have a sophisticated cyclone dust system to hook it up to. i just use my shop vac, even that’s a problem. i have several adaptors but none fit the size of the bag fitting. i had a Forrest shopmaster blade on my 10", i will be replacing this blade because there is some tearout with this blade even though its brand new (probably same problem with any blade a saw comes with). those are the only things i can complain about, saw is very well built. shop around....prices very!.
