Product Reviews from Real People
“I’m the guy you may have seen complain about sliding miter saws in other venues. I have tried many saws, but they all had the same problems. First, the blade was never perfectly aligned with its path (heel), and there was no way to adjust it. The resulting cut would be OK in some places, but not OK in others. Secondly, the slide always had vibration. This would impart a less than smooth cut. I have been waiting to try this new design; it just looked like it had to work the way it should. I have it now, and I absolutely love it! It is smooth as silk, with no vibration, and the blade is “almost” perfectly aligned with its path. I am thankful they finally made a miter saw I could appreciate, because I don’t think I have too many years left to wait for one to be invented. I really do recommend this saw.” By MezJarJarBinks “Chuck”
“This is a great saw with very good precision and capabilities. The dust collection works very well too. It is taller than my previous saw and had to customize my miter saw table to fit. I would recommend this saw to anyone that needs precision in their cuts and ease of motion.” By John S. White
“This saw it’s amazing. Very smooth. They really re-engineer a good machine. Very accurate and user friendly. The dust collection system doesn’t work well. Unless you are using in a shop like me and have a central vac hook to your units. Besides I am very happy with this unit. Capabilities are excellent.” By Camilo Arango
“Very nice saw! I have been in construction for over 25 years, and know good tools when they come around. This is one of those. I not only have built homes from the ground up, but I am a cabinetmaker and finish carpenter. Let me tell you if I had this saw then, I would have been able to make more money at what I was building. The transition time between angles is phenomenal! I highly recommend this saw if you are contemplating it DO IT! Oh and by the way it is quieter than any other miter/chop saw I have ever used.” By Dave
“This saw is beyond amazing. The articulated arms save so much space in my shop. It goes next to the wall and all the controls are up front and logical. I’m a professional woodworker. I make a living with my tools. I looked at the Festool, but chose this because of capacity and space (I own lots of Festool hand tools). I built a curved conference table and this saw was perfect for the miters. …. Pricey, but well worth the $$$.” By Roger Hunter
This 12″ Bosch Glide Miter Saw is a high precision piece of equipment with ergonomic design and expanded capability. Compact and portable, this powerful machine is on the higher end of the cost scale, but the miter saw reviews show that it is certainly worth it.

Neat Axial Gliding System
This is what is responsible for the smooth cuts. The Bosch’s patented Axial System was designed to provide smooth cuts while ensuring that you have total control over its cutting action. The Axial-Glide does not incorporate the traditional rail setup and thus, the saw takes up to 12 inches less work space as compared to most of the saw’s competitors. Read more here…
