We purchased the Bosch 12" Dual Bevel Axial Glide Miter Saw to be used during a recent home renovation project. We decided to lay laminate flooring throughout our entire upstairs. My husband convinced me that we needed this saw, yet after I saw the price I thought he was just trying to get another tool. I caved, however, and let him buy the saw and I am so glad that he did. This saw made our project go so much smoother. We bought a laminate flooring blade to go with the saw and it cut the wood with no scarring. It is powerful and you can cut a 2 X 8 without having to rotate the board. It does precision miter cuts with ease. It rotates on its base with minimal effort. When doing such a large project everything that can help save time is worth it. We also purchases a portable stand and I would suggest doing the same. I have a feeling we will be using this saw often on future remodel projects.
