WOOD magazine review

Left-tilt only, but lots of great features

Review Summary

+Hits: Bosch's scaled-down slider has a lot going for it: a miter range of 60° right to 52° left with a detent override; miter and bevel stops for cutting crown molding; a front-mounted bevel lock; extension wings 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. -Misses: This saw bevels only to the left.
Its cast-aluminum miter scale has wide increment markings and proves difficult to 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. Its 4-1/2' power cord almost always will need an extension cord. And the porous dust-collection bag allows fine dust to pass through and become airborne.
