Bosch Miter Saw

Hi guys I was thinking of getting the Bosch 12" Dual-Bevel Glide Miter Saw because it can go up against the wall in my small shop. But I am not to sure if it worth the money. about 800 just wondering what you guys think?

I have no personal experience (I keep looking for one of these at one of the local big box stores so I can check it out). I got curious as to user feedback too, so I checked Amazon here: http://www.amazon.com/Bosch-GCM12SD-...owViewpoints=1

Reviews are mixed.

Find it hard to believe this:


"2. The table on my saw is not flat. The center is low by .029" which seems excessive to me."


Can't believe Bosch would put out junk like that. Did they get taken over by someone else?

Harrison, at your service!

internet reviews

I have heard some of the bad press to but in the reviews it seems that bosch was trying to fixxing the problems (which most seemed from shipping). But that is why I was trying to find someone that had one on here. I can't find a demo one around to play with either. So I was hoping someone out there had one since you all seem to know what you are doing I trust your opinion more then random internet post.

In reading through the reviews, it seems problems like above were caused by shipping like crazytiki mentioned. One post said that the box was dropped off the back of a tractor trailer. Ouch! Bosch needs to pack these things to avoid damage like that.
