    Fantastic saw
    I typically have either a DeWalt or a Makita at work since that's what my company buys. When I was in the market for a saw for myself that's where I started but I ended up buying this saw even after playing with the Festool Kapex. Having arms instead of rails means the wall behind your saw is never an issue. The arms contract and do not extend past the back of the base. The arms also deflect very little when compared to rails. Before I bought it I pushed all of the saws I looked at left and right to see how much they deflect and this saw deflected about half as much under what is nothing short of abusive lateral force on the saw. As far as blade deflection, we'll it's a 12 inch saw. If your terrified of blade deflection get a 10" saw. I do stair railing for side work so deflection is a concern for me and my cuts must be precise. Cutting hard woods on angles around 40 degrees isn't the easiest thing for your blade but a good blade and not forcing the saw like a apprentice and this saw makes beautiful cuts every time. The saw isn't light but I just avoid moving it. All of the controls are up front so you don't have to reach behind the saw and try to adjust for a angle. Personally the best saw I've ever used.

    100% accurate saw
    I purchased this saw under the advise of a Jet dealer when I was trying to find info and hands on a Jet sliding compound saw.
    This saw is absolutely perfectly square and straight out of the box. Only complaint I have is no lighting, seriously for the money you spend, no lights? I did find on there saws sent to other country's have a led light built into the plastic tip of the blade guard, Just not US models. I used a sewing machine led light idea from YouTube, works awesome.

    Beware Blade Issues
    Just so you know "Freud" branded blades will not work on this saw. They are metric and are generally only 11 3/4 in diameter. Saw will not complete the cut with them. Talked to Freud and they told me this and also recommended using their Diablalo (sic) brand as all of them are true 12". Now the question is too Bosch why make a slider so critical to not let end users be able to use very popular blades (Freud) on their saw. Anyone know the answer to this one.

    The blade has too much lateral movement to at full extension and/or when beveled.

    Does this saw have a laser?

    BEST ANSWER: No
    Is there any loss of stability (play) while the glide is fully extended as there is with slides?
