Excellent choice
I ordered the reconditioned model. Other than the sticker that says Bosch Recon I can tell no difference in the saw. I like it. Very accurate. A clean cut with the provided blade. As a con I rated it as heavy. It is! I can't imagine it being lighter and hold the quality of the cut. Heavy but I can pick it up and move it. I did order the Bosch Gravity stand with negates the weight issue.

I have two of these saws and I absolutely love them. Controls are user friendly and functionable, it saves a lot of space being able to have it up against the wall and the dust collection works great !

Great miter saw
I got the reconditioned saw, great deal, looks and acts like a brand new saw. Very powerful motor, you can feel it torque and twist your hand on start up. Performs accurate cuts, and returns to true angles on the detents. I used it for like a month now and performs great. I also got the laser attachment which works well with this saw. I also upgraded the saw blade to an 80 tooth blade for fine cuts, Original blade was not too bad, left a smooth edge.
I contemplated this saw for weeks, but the sale and additional discount was to much to pass up.
The Axial glide arms act very smooth and save a lot of space.

Great saw
None of the play you find in sliding arm saws. Great Power and accuracy. Not light, but no good miter saw is.

I love this saw
I bought this saw because it had all the capabilities that slide miters do but without the drag of the bars. With a good fine tooth blade this saw is unbeatable

An awesome saw, just too heavy to drag around
I now have three dual compound saws, two sliding, this one articulated. It is certainly the best of the three designs, unlike the others, everything is accessable in the front plus you can place it against a back wall as there is no slide mechanism that would protrude out the back plus nothiing to clog up with sawdust. I placed it in my shop and took the 10 pound lighter saw out to use on job sites. Face it, a single swing compound saw will do 98% of what we normally want to run through it, but this saw will cut wider, and you can rabbit and dado with it as it has a limit device for depth of cut.
This saw was supposedly reconditioned, I could not tell if it had ever been out of the box. I would have never suspected that it was not new off the shelf. I have two other Bosch reconditioned tools, the same goes for them.

Recon Purchase
So far I am pleased with my purchase of the recon Bosch 12" miter saw. It arrived in good condition, however UPS had trouble locating my condo. Not CPO's problem. My first step was to review the owners manual and set up instructions. Not that I had to set anything up, just a few minor things had to be done. After reviewing the user instructions I proceeded to try a few test cuts and everything worked well. Cutting accuracy was good right out of the box. This recon unit was a great value and there were just a few minor paint scratches on locking handle. The blade provided look like new. It obviously had been used because there was still saw dust in the track fence. It also was minor. I am now in the process of adapting the saw to a cabinet that I made. I am looking forward to a couple of major furniture projects that I have coming up. This saw will be a compliment to my Bosch table saw allowing me to work more efficiently..

The best site to purchase quality tools
I've been looking to purchase this saw for some time and then found cool outlets. Everything has been fantastic, I can't tell the difference from new. Other than the price I paid.

Bosch GCM12SD-RT 12 in. Dual-Bevel Glide Miter Saw
The only reason I didn't give it a five star was of the handle. When you go to start the saw it's difficult to bring the handle down with the way the safety switch is designed to start the motor. other than that I love this saw. Moving the base to different angles is easy. The extension on the base to handle longer pieces of wood is great.

Does the reconditioned model come with a blade?
A shopper on Jan 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes it comes with a Bosch blade, but I replaced it with a Freud diablo, the Bosch blade wasn't sharp enough for me
I see from the part list that this miter saw uses a brushed motor, which is frequency independent (I.e. either 50hz or 60hz will work). Can I convert this to 230v by fitting the 230v UK armature or do I need to buy a step down 230v to 110v transformer? Or will either approach work?
Mark on Mar 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Your question would be best answered by Bosch directly. Please call 877-267-2499
Is the saw in rough condition.
What repairs were needed.
TERMITE on Dec 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The reconditioning is done by the manufacturer not CPO. We do not receive documentation of what was repaired on the unit.
Can you provide any details of the 60T blade provided with the saw? Tooth configuration, rake angle, etc. Is it a carbide tipped blade?
DON on Sep 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The Bosch DCB1260 Daredevil 12 in. 60 Tooth Fine Finish Circular Saw Blade comes with this miter saw.
Can a laser be bought for the saw? I see it is available in Europe and want to know how much extra this would cost and how difficult is it to install.

Also do you sell the Bosch miter saw stands for it?
