This unique saw features Bosch’s 'Axial-Glide'™system, which provides the smoothest and most precise cutting action of any mitre saw on the market today. Rather than using guide bars, the GCM 12 GDL features vertical and horizontal hinged arms with sealed bearings. The arrangement guarantees a maintenance-free, super smooth and highly accurate action.
In addition, the design saves space. You do not need to allow for guide bars projecting to the rear and as the controls for setting mitre and bevel cuts are at the front of the machine; you can position the GCM 12 GDL against a wall. The saw has a large cutting capacity and wide ranges of both mitre and bevel angles. A laser projects a dual line defining each side of the kerf for precise line-up before cutting. A depth of cut limiter allows you to groove or rebate.
The table has pull out material supports right and left, with stops for repeat cuts. The back fence, with a total length of 1,016mm offers maximum work support. The Axial-Glide™ system locks for transport.

Recommended. Has some limitations for pro use, but beats all the competition hands downI bought this saw mainly to cut 4” oak rafters and such like for timber framing, as well as general carpentry. It is a good saw. I bought the package deal with the Bosch saw trolley. There is very little choice of manufacturer when you need this capacity: mainly Makita and DeWalt. Bosch is a bit more expensive but not enough to matter for a long term purchase.

So smooth!After owning a comparable makita and using larger dewalt chop saws, this one is in a completely different league!

GCM axial glideJust got the saw, perfect straight out of the box first impressions it's a fantastic saw so smooth and plenty of power even in hard oak, don't think much of the dust extraction though they claim 80 percent recovery but I thinks that's very optimistic hard pushed to recover 50 per cent I would think, any way thanks Axminster, spot on service as always .

Fantastic sawBrought this saw a couple of months ago it's nothing short of brilliant. Axminster looks after you. Go there and buy, you won't find a better service anywhere.

Laser light broke real fastSuper saw but laser light lasted all of about three weeks. - For a NZD $1450 saw this is a little hard to stomach . .
