    Comments about 12 in. Single Bevel Compound Miter Saw:

    Fine Woodworking did a recent review and raved about the flat table and flat fence, so my expectations were high. I have an old Dewalt that is in prefect condition, but wanted the more accurate and better dust collection of the Bosch. Here is what I found: The fence is not flat along its full left to right length. Mine has a .010" hollow on the left side near the blade and another hollow on the far right side. The fence is also not perpendicular to the table. On the left side, mine is pretty close, but the right side has a .020" gap at the top of the high point near the blade. The blade is not perpendicular to the fence as shipped, but that can be readily adjusted. I will call Tyler and see about an exchange or as others have noted getting fence parts from Bosch. Overall, it is a solid and well designed miter saw. But for woodworking (vs construction) the fence should be at .003 flatness and near dead-on perpendicular to the fence. The dust chute was also not correctly attached, and the small plastic part where the screw attaches it to the base was broken. That is a simple part swap.

    I don't mind fine tuning, but flattening the fence is a machine shop job, so hopefully Tyler/Bosch will replace. I used a Starrett straightedge for the checks.

    I'd recommend as a general purpose miter saw. But without resolution to the fence issues, it's not the dead-on woodworking tool I was expecting. At least not yet. If Tyler/Bosch make it right, I will post an update.

    Comments about 12 in. Single Bevel Compound Miter Saw:

    Very good saw, crummy blade, for a woodworker. I replaced the blade with a Freud 96 tooth crosscut blade, and this combo works great. Usually, woodworkers don't need double bevel, compound miter saws, as I've never used the bevel capability. Always did it on my table saw. Maybe different needs for construction workers. Saw came pretty well set up, I checked the accuracy and didn't have to change a thing. Easy to use. Just sight down the blade face to see your cut mark, and cut. Don't need a laser line, which never stay in tune. Really happy with this purchase.

    Works great but right fence has warped

    By tboom

    from Des Moines, IA

    Comments about Bosch 12 in. Single Bevel Compound Miter Saw:

    My CM 12 is about a year old and has worked extremely well to date. Recently the right hand fence has begun to warp. I am unsure of why. Saw still works very well except now I am unable to make 45 degree cuts on the from upper left to lower right because the blade guard now gets in the way. Otherwise the saw is wonderful for making clean, smooth cuts.

    Comments about 12 in. Single Bevel Compound Miter Saw:

    I bought it after good review in a woodworking magazine. I have bought reconditioned tools before with no problems, but this saw arrived with two bent fences. I called CPO, who directed me to Bosch. The CS agent at Bosch was most understanding and promptly sent out the fences, no questions asked. I have cut 7" X 2" walnut like it was butter. I like Bosch tools, and this saw is another excellent product from them.

      Q:

      How do I adjust the factory set 45 degree detents? They are about 44 degrees from the factory now. Also, when I am making 45 degree cuts it does not cut all the way through the wood. Is there an adjustment for that?

    New Vs. Reconditioned

    What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

    Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
    • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
    • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
    • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
