I agree with previous post concerning lazer on saw, not much good for
precision work, but if your a framer, go for it. I did some carving
work for a furniture company, the guy's in the shop had a variety of
miter saws at thier work stations, Delta, Craftsman, Porter Cable,
Makita, Bosch, and Dewalt. I found that for precision, and capacity
the Makita Dual Slide 12" was my favorite, but the most precise saw of
the bunch was the Bosch 10" Dual Sliding Compound. I liked it so much
I went and bought one for my shop.
What I like abut it are:
All the controls are right up front, no reaching around behind the
saw to adjust anything.
The detent stops are right on.
The blade tips both left and right. (some don't)
I require exceptional accuracy, and the Bosch is the best I've seen
What I don't like:
$685 bucks OUCH.
The blade stop is difficult to engage for blade changes.
The depth stop is kind of cheezy and difficult to set accuratly.
By the way, I have a friend that owns a tool repair shop, and is the
autorized service center for all the above brands. He says he's never
had a Bosch in his shop.
