WOOD magazine review

Dual-bevel, multiposition handle, and microadjuster

Review Summary

+Hits: It has a miter range of 60° right to 52° left with a detent override and microadjuster, miter and bevel stops for cutting crown molding, front-mounted bevel lock, table extensions that add 7-1/2" of support to each side, a tall, adjustable fence with etched scales for quick reference, and a dual-position safety-switch trigger.
There's also a multiposition handle right-tilting capability with a better bevel scale than its smaller sibling (Bosch 4405), and an 8-1/2-foot power cord. -Misses: This saw has a cast-aluminum miter scale with wide increment markings that prove difficult to read and set non-detent angles. The blade guard creates a slight hitch that you must push through before you can plunge the saw. You cannot adjust the throat-plate kerf opening. The porous dust-collection bag allows fine dust to pass through and become airborne.

Great Tool!

Review Summary

I've owned this for 15 years, and do not regret the purchase. The blade is excellent, just keep it clean. Bosch has redesigned it to a higher level since, however I would still recommend this over others.
