New Bosch 12 inch slider

Looke here fulla's...

http://www.tool-rank.com/tool-blog/news/new-bosch-axial-glide-12%E2%80%9D-miter-saw-20100604690/

Now this is somthing pretty new and exciting.... sealed bearings back to the wall ability.

Bearings and machined ally components should make things accurate what do you think!

Since it uses a fancy lever-based mechanism instead of the usual bars, can this saw still be referred to as a 'slider'?  [blink]

Nope, it moves. [wink] So we now have to call it a 'Mover'.

I just got an email from Gary Katz.  Check out his online magazine This Is Carpentry for a review of the Bosch saw.  The review was not personally done by Gary.

"While I don’t think there is a better saw on the market today for a shop set-up"

Those are big words there and a heck of a claim to make.  :)

Also translates into a boat anchor that is not easy to carry or move around. [big grin]

Yeah he said that, but I don't carry my saw around anymore, those days are long gone. I stay in the shop and that's where I will be for the remainder. To me this is more a shop saw. I sure would like the Milwaukee miter gauge on it though. Since I got used to that I just can not give it up.  :)

For a shop saw, I would rather have an Omga.  At least they were designed to stay still and are built that way (very heavy).

I don't see a sliding miter really being made to be a shop type saw.

For a shop saw this CCMS seems to be a real bargain --> saves you lots of money on a dedicated shop Vac
as attaching a Vac would be fairly useless on this saw  [big grin]

Credit goes to my beloved Kapex for great DC - thus saving my lungs  [thanks]

It works for me.  :) There is always something better out there.

I consider my self lucky my dad and grandpa had no power tools like we have now. So I will be happy with what I have.

I seem to make perfect miters and cuts with the Milwaukee, Rigid and yes even a Kapex(I no longer have it) and they are all nice shop saws in my opinion.  :)

These saws do not have near the capacity I need:

A properly adjusted slider gives a good enough cut for anything I have ever made out of wood.

I have allways like Bosch tools.That's all i used before i got hooked with Festool.After reading reviews on that new saw,i don't think it is all that.
The cutting capacity is not all that great for a 12".Dust control is somewhat ok.The weight of the saw is on the heavy side.The review stated that it is hard to pick up/hold the saw for transport.
But then again,i have the Kapex and i don't feel that it is the best saw,  GOOD, but not perfect.
I guess what matter the most is how good it cuts.And stays that way.The Kapex does that very well.Hope the new Bosch does the same.
I don't understand!?! I keep cutting it,and it's still too short!

Well good, then they are made to last.

It is all relative to what you need it for.

I just picture a big Omga when some one says the want a shop saw.
