Product Overview

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
  • Super-accurate and durable design for long tool life

Nice saw, but too much wobble & Deflection
This is overall a very nice saw, except when you want to do very precise cuts and being 0.5mm off is a problem. when the saw is all the way back, (not extended) i can move the blade left or right using the handle. up to 1mm, well this is a problem, it should be much tighter then this. not acceptable for a saw of this price range and "caliber"

Great saw.
I had a compound miter and radial arm saw. Replaced both with this saw and wish I had sooner. Great saw, very smooth clean cutting saw. Accurate out of the box.

Actually does exactly what it claims to do, which is refreshing these days!!!
Excellent saw, and I have owned at least 5 different brands over the years. You set the angle and it stays there. Smooth action. Takes up very little space. I saved at least 10” of wall space behind the saw to the wall.

Best Miter Saw on the Market!!
I purchased this saw as the primary miter / crosscut saw for my woodshop. I have had other brands but was looking for a saw to build into a miter saw station close to a wall. This saw stood out to me because of the innovative glide mechanism versus the slide rails used by most competitors. I went ahead and purchased the saw and have been blown away with its ease of use and superior performance. One thing I was very surprised at is how well the dust collection is when hooked up. It's difficult to try to make a miter saw have zero dust but if you build a shroud around this and keep the dust collection hooked up, it's actually not too bad. I have been very impressed with this saw!

By far the best miter saw out there. Not only designed perfectly with the ability to place up close to a wall, which helps when working in tight quarters. The up front controls make changing angles and bevels a breeze. Smooth motion when making miters and compound miters "like a knife through butter". Don't waste your money on any other saw this is the one to get .

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.

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:

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 120 days.
