Bosch GCM12SD 12 in. Dual-Bevel Glide Miter Saw

Details
The Bosch GCM12SD is a 12 In. Dual-Bevel Glide Miter Saw that features a smooth cutting motion, accurate performance and a space-saving design of the Bosch-exclusive Axial-Glide System. Pre-aligned Squarelock fences help the saw maintain precision throughout its life; a soft-grip ambidextrous handle along with a combination dust chute and vacuum adaptor add to user comfort. The saw also offers a large cutting capacity, easy-to-read bevel and miter scales with detents at common angles, and easy-access upfront controls.
Compact Axial-Glide System Creates Smooth Cuts - The Bosch-exclusive Axial-Glide System is designed to create smooth cuts and ensures that the user has complete control over the saw's cutting action. The glide system offers wider cross-cuts, enhanced alignment and smooth glide for the life of the tool. Axial-Glide doesn't use a traditional rail setup, so this saw takes up to 12 In. less workspace.
Powerful Motor for Versatile Performance - The 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 in. blades and it has a clear lower guard to provide unobstructed cut-line visibility. With a 14 In. horizontal capacity, a 6-1/2 In. vertical capacity for material against the fence or base, and a 6-1/2 In. nested crown capacity against the fence at 45 degrees, this miter saw is useful for a variety of cuts. In addition, the saw features two sliding integrated base extensions that provide adjustable support for materials measuring up to 40 In. long.
Features:
  • Patented Axial-Glide System remains consistent throughout the tool's life
  • Compact design saves up to twelve inches of workspace
  • Glide action gives unmatched smoothness of cut
  • Expanded cutting capacity
  • High precision Squarelock fence and one-touch lock/unlock to slide fence for added support
  • 40 in. left-to-right, 60% more left-to-right material support than leading competitor
  • Adjustable miter detents at 0 degrees, 15 degrees, 31.6 degrees, 22.5 degrees, 45 degrees, 60 degrees right
  • Bevel detents at 0 degrees, 33.9 degrees, 45 degrees left/right for accurate cuts
  • Category best 90% dust collection when used with a vacuum
  • Large form fitting ergonomic ambidextrous handle provides comfort for all-day use

Love the space saving glide action.
I've had this saw for a few months now and can say I've been very pleased with it. I really like the glide arm design and the space savings it provides being able to have the saw closer to the wall.

Great saw! So well engineered and designed
I’ve had this saw over a month. It is way better than I expected. The usability, the detents, the user friendly settings, the precise exacting cuts. All great. The need for an actual 12 inch blade, not 11 7/8... a small drawback. The Freud blade is just an 1/8 to small. The dust collection is 1/2 as good as my cheap old Craftsman.

I love this mitre saw. I've owned many different types of mitre saws over the many years in the building industry. And this is the best mitre saw I' have ever owned. It makes exact and perfect cuts every time. It's easy to set up. Quit compared to other mitre saws. And extremely reliable. Honestly I wouldn't changed this for any other mitre saw out there. I class her as my baby. And can be meticulous about anyone else using her. Which I don't allow. Unless I'm over there shoulder. I have the stand which I bought and so glad I did everywhere I go. My co workers are blown away when i pull it down as it has bug rubber wheels. Bosch really did a fantastic job building one of a kind mitre saw. if anyone has reservations. Don't be this is a fantastic mitre saw for the professional alike...

The stars dont mean anything!
It is very hard to evaluate this saw. I own the Bosch 4410 10” since 2010, I have had no issues with it , everything i wanted was on that saw. Here comes the dilemma! There are many 12" saw out there I initially went with the "Orange" 12" dual bevel miter saw, needless to say I was horrified when I got that into my shop, very awkward saw to work with. Back to the store it goes. I guess the ol saying holds true if it aint broke don't fix it. I figured I'd stay with Bosch. I picked up the GCM12SD. This saw is similar to the 4410 i.e in looks with some differences. Great feature the space saving ball bearing arm! and same good old power and accuracy form Bosch. Big misses for the price, saw has no laser or led guide. The back of the saw is open , the 4410 had a plastic plate which housed the adjustment tools for the saw. This is a big miss on the 12". This saw has no carrying handles to carry the saw . There are 2 hand indents on either side of the table but this makes it vey awkward to grab not to mention breaking your back since the saw is heavy. The 4410 had 2 handles on the top of the saw which made transport easy.
The saw is basically meant to be stationary in a shop, which suits my needs. However, buyer be ware it is not meant to be carried to a job site.
I think Bosch cheeped out on this saw, for the price this saw should have been top notch with all the trimmings!
Its really hard to give this saw a rating there are hits and serious misses! I cant recommend this it depends on the individual needs.

I bought this about 3 weeks ago and it really performs well. The only problem I had was the blade wasn’t 90 degrees to the table. It was easy to correct. All other adjustments were correct. I would highly recommend anyone buying this saw check all angle adjustments before using it. It will save a lot of frustration with cuts that are not accurate.

NEVER DISAPPOINTED
I own several Bosch tools and have never been unhappy with any of them. Always the highest quality without exception. I have not had a chance to fully engage this saw, but with the small amount of usage thus far I know I made the correct decision in purchasing another Bosch product.

What was the primary issue on the reconditioned versions of the Bosch 12 inch glide miter saws?
Jose on Jun 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Sorry I have no idea nor knowledge about any Bosch reconditioned miter saw. I brought a 12" Axial Dual Bevel Glide GCM12SD, that was new. I love the saw, but it is very heavy, so one does need the folding stand to move the saw around. Issues w/ this saw so far, I have none. From what I understand tho, a reconditioned saw is a little cheaper, but still is considered a new saw w/ the full warranty.
Where is this saw made? And what about the Bosch gravity-rise stand--where is it made? Thanks
Bruce on Sep 18, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Both of them are made in China now
Hi, i'm interested to this product, but I want know if this product can work with 220 volts current.
BYE:
Domenico on Dec 2, 2013
BEST ANSWER: No the saw will not work with 220volts.

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!
Woodman John on Mar 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: There is a depth stop plate and screw that will allow you to adjust the depth of cut of the miter saw blade. If you look in the provided manual, the numbers are 32 and 33:
