    Outstanding quality, excellent accuracy and a joy to use. Bosch really know how to make tools.

    This is my second one, first one was good, lasted about 10 years then things went south and needed to be replaced. As I stated it was a good machine but this one is much, much better in EVERY way. It is an extremely excellent piece of kit.
    My motto is get the best ( and look after it) and you will not regret it.

    I’ve only used this for a few jobs so far, but it’s an absolute pleasure to work with. Well worth watching the online video to see the features demonstrated. I’ve never yet been disappointed by a Bosch power too (or domestic appliance for that matter) and this saw is no exception. It’s outstanding and I’d highly recommend it !

    Works perfectly. Does everything I want it to. However, if you want the laser line to work longer than 3.5 seconds maybe this isn’t the saw for you.
    Otherwise great value for money.

    Golden Review Award: 154 From Our UsersFirstly let me say I’ve been a carpenter for over 30 years, so I have some experience with mitre saws.

    Ok I had three mitre saws that were all Dewalt. 1) a 305mm blade which tilts both ways which I use for larger roof framing projects etc. 2) The new cordless Dewalt which I use for smaller projects or if no plug in power is available. 3) A 216mm blade Dewalt which will handle most projects that I used daily, this saw eventually died after years of use so I needed a replacement.

    I don’t like the design of the new 216mm mitre saws from Dewalt, they remind me of an Elu I had many years ago. So I did some research and opted for the Bosch GCM 8 SJL on Amazon at the very reasonable price of 259. I almost went for the Makita equivalent which also looks a good machine, I have other Makita tools which are first class.

    Out of the box I checked the saws cutting accuracy, the saw cut absolutely spot on square so no adjustment required. The only thing I had to adjust was the laser. I always download the Pdf manual of all my new power tools from their makers websites, but this saw also comes with a paper manual which explained how to adjust the laser.

    The sliding action is very smooth and the saw has an adjustable depth stop for doing trench cuts etc, a very useful addition which I’ve used for lap joints. The saw has table extensions both left and right which I really like for extending the support of material. This saw only tilts one way, but that’s not an issue you just need to reverse your cuts. The mitre adjustment setup is different to what I’m used to on the Dewalt saws, but it works perfectly fine. The saw has plenty of power and comes with a very good quality blade, I’ve cut through 8″ x 2″ timber like a hot knife through butter.

    Another reviewer complained about the dust extraction? If you connect an dust extractor to the machine it works really well, if you don’t you will get a buildup of sawdust but that happens with all machines. I’d always recommend connecting an extractor if you’re working inside for health reasons, if you’re working outside it’s not an issue.

    Now this machine is a Bosch and it’s a mitre saw, so I certainly expected to pay much more for it. The fist thing I did notice when I unboxed it was it’s made in China, something a work colleague didn’t like. However I’ve had it about a month now and I must say I’m impressed with it, this saw certainly has German engineering.

    So I’d say it’s not the best mitre saw I’ve ever had, but for the money it’s defenatly the best value and will do just about any carpentry project thrown at it. So far I’ve cut a small hipped roof on an extension with it, it’s cut skirting, architraves, studwork, handrails, base rails and spindles etc all very accurately.

    If you’re looking to buy a mitre saw think about what sort of work you’re going to do with it and what size timbers you’ll be cutting, then buy accordingly. I use this saw for every day general carpentry and so far I’m pleased with it. So for that reason and especially for the price I’d recommend it and I’ve given it five stars!
