Best cut in miter saws
Purchased in 2001, used as go-to saw to this day. Most stable cutting path of all major manufacturers. A reputation maker.

Best miter saw ever!
Very precise saw that is dead on the mark straight out of the box. A little heavy, but all saws this size are. I like this saw better then the 12 inch hitachi.

Professional Stability & Results Every Time
This Bosch saw is my "Go to" Power Miter Box.
It has exceeded my expectations & I am really happy that I upgraded to this saw. I use it daily in my business with multiple users & even after 6 months of steady use, the calibration is still right on the money..... Great Product, Great Company!!!

Bosch compound miter saws are the best
In our construction business quality products are vitally important. Our first Bosch miter saw we purchased was very popular over a lesser quality one. Most of our employees chose to wait for the Bosch to be available. Whether it was used for simple 2'x4' stud cutting or more angular cuts this saw had the heavier metal quality to complete any job

Awsome Compound Miter Saw
I recently sold my table saw when I had to downsize my shop. I bought the Bosch GCM12SD compound miter saw as an interim replacement. The tool is awesome. It cuts exactly the angles for miter and bevel and both with plenty of power. The cuts, using the Bosch Diablo blade are comparable to the table saw. The features of the GCM12SD allow me to do all of the cabinet and trim work that I need to redo my house. Excellent tool. I am proud to have it in my shop.

Older version excellent
Sorry for Bosch but great for me, I bought my Bosch compound miter many years ago. Couldn't ask for anything better. May be a tool to pass along to my grandkid.

Well built and great design.
I've used this only once so far, but love it. Precise, easy to use, well built. Upgraded to a Bosch from a craftsman, no comparison.

Enjoy greater cutting width
I like the additional width I can cut with the glide arm. It was easy to put together. It is a little heavier than i was used to, but on a portable base its no big deal.

I purachses the 12 In. Dual Bevel Slide Miter Saw a few years back and instantly it became one of my favorite tools. I use it for various woodworking projects and numerous home improvement projects. Once you figure out how to adjust it for the task at hand, it becomes an incredibly precise and easy to use saw. It keeps amazing me on its versatility and easy of use. I have recommended it to friends and would recommend it to anyone.

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.
