I have been using the laser guide that came with the Bosch SCMS for approximately 6 years. Changed batteries three times, and it finally died on a cabinet crown job. This is a very dependable laser guide.
Lasers quickly show where the cut line will be. I have used other brands in the past. Off brands don't seem to last, so I decided to spend a couple bucks more and compare the quality. Appreciated the correct fit for my Bosch miter saw. Haven't had very long but my expectations are high.
Shoots an accurate line if you know how to use it...
Installation of this laser guide was simple. It replaces the outboard washer on the Bosch miter saws. There is a centrifugal switch that turns on the laser when the blade spins up. The line is "fat" but if you put your pencil line on the right edge, it seems to be quite accurate (to 1/64" IME). This beats creeping up on the line as I've done in the past.
The saw I replaces lazer had a on/off switch, the lazer could be turned on without the saw running. This made cutting set up easy. With the Bosch lazer the saw needs to be running in order to put the lazer mark on the cutting mark.
