This is a unique saw with a very special 'Axial-Glide'™ system that gives the smoothest, precise cutting action of any of the mitre saws on the market today. Guided by means of a glide arm, mounted on sealed bearings and made from robust die-cast aluminium, it is maintenance-free and guaranteed to be smooth and accurate running for a lifetime of cutting. It has large capacities and a wide angle range plus dual laser-line for precise line-up before cutting and groove function. The machine saves space as it can be positioned against a wall. All controls are at the front and the scales and positive lock handles make setting the machine easy. Fitted with integrated material supports right and left of the main table, it has a back fence with a total length of 1,016mm to give maximum work support. The glide system is lockable for transport.

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 .

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 . .

Excellent sawI bought the Bosch 12 Glide Axial Miter saw from Axminster three weeks ago for my DIY projects….I am not a carpenter and have not used this machine before therefore every time I wanted to know anything I phoned Axminster and found they are an excellent company..So far I phoned four or five times and they helped me all the way.The machine is wonderful and I think I made the right choose buying the best machine available..Accuracy of the machine is unbelievable and very very smooth cutting. The machine is a bit heavy but I am going to use it in my garage so it didn't matter at all..I made my mind up that any Diy machines I will definitely buy from Axminster.I couldn't fault their customer service and the technical department…Good luck Axminster you made another customer very very happy..

Sadly Laser Gave UpI too bought this saw for its accuracy as I am in the final years of a furniture making course where I have to complete projects at home as well as at college. The college has one of these and I found it to be very precise at 90 degrees as well as at 45 degrees.
