It?s a glider, not a slider

It's a glider, not a slider

Take one look at Bosch's new 12" saw, and what you don't see reveals the innovation. Bosch replaced the traditional tubular rails that the saw head slides on with an articulated-arm system that yields a super-smooth glide forward and back. Another big benefit: You can position this saw tightly against a shop wall because it doesn't need the extra space at the rear for the rails.

Bought the 12" saw love the slide feature but for certain operations (compound miters)the saw can not be tight to the wall. Otherwise I love the saw

I've heard that the 10 inch is in development and may be offered in the next 12-18 months. The 12 inch has a 1 inch arbor and will not allow sharing blades with other 10 inch tools. I have a tiny shop and wish I could have purchased a 10 inch version, but their sliding 10 inch is really nice too, and not that much longer than the total length of their 12 incher. For me, using very high quality blades, buying a number of equal quality 12 inch blades is a LOT of unjustifiable expense.

I used one just the other day and loved it. It is so smooth that you could not feel it working.
