Comments about 12 in. Dual-Bevel Glide Miter Saw:

This is a very nice saw to use. I use it a lot for lp siding. The 14 inch depth of cut is great for cutting the wider sidings. And it glides so much smoother than the old slide styles I've used in the past. It is very well built which brings me to my only complaint. It is quite heavy. I guess weight is a drawback to being constructed out of heavy duty materials, so i can live with it. I put mine on a folding, rolling cart and it is not an issue any more. I bought the reconditioned model and when you consider it has no sales tax i saved about $250 off the price of buying it at menards! Other than some minor signs of use where the bed pivots and a little saw dust on it it looked brand new. I'm very happy and will buy recon. again.

Comments about 12 in. Dual-Bevel Glide Miter Saw:

This saw sees heavy bench time cutting hardwoods and some ply in a production/custom furniture shop. It replaced an older Bosch that is being repurposed for a different cut task. My only gripe is my chop saw bench is out in the elements and have to drag this saw out and in daily. It's not light for moving in and out of shops or vehicles unless you're built like a tank. It's got way more torque/power than previous saw and sliding mechanism/articulating arm is eye candy. I can't get over the ingenuity behind it. I'll often stare at it instead of working. Got this one refurbished and it's worth the discount. Put off buying a replacement due to the fact that compound sliders have their limits and accuracy issues. Accuracy is next best thing to a festool at 3x the cost.

    I replaced a 10" Delta Compound Miter to build my new deck that was two levels and 850 sq ft and this saw made the cutting a breeze. I added a laser since that seems to be the in thing with most of the competitors.

      Looked every brand. Went Bosch because of the qualify of the design. Out of the box, the saw worked perfectly. I plan to purchase one of the Bosch portable miter stands next because the saw is heavy. CPO has a very good return policy and 60 reconditioned warranty. I will always buy reconditioned from CPO based on my first purchase experience with them.

        Q:

        Does this saw have an " adjustable stop mechanism" for notching wood instead of cutting all the way thru it? For example if a person wanted to notch out a 4x4 post to fit a 2x4. Thanks!

      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.
