Bosch Axial-Glide Dual-Bevel Mitre Saw


Bosch Axial-Glide Dual-Bevel Mitre Saw

Bosch has upped the ante with this mitre saw redesign. The Axial-Glide dual-bevel mitre saw looks, feels and, more importantly, works differently than all its predecessors. An articulating glide arm system allowed Bosch to get rid of the sliding rails common on other large mitre saws and reap the benefits along the way. What Bosch produced was a mitre saw with a smooth feel, a high degree of accuracy, consistent long-term performance and a smaller footprint. To top things off, it even (as the name implies) makes bevel cuts in both directions, making your woodworking life a little easier. If you’re someone who uses a mitre saw while earning a living or if you want some increased performance while cutting crown, baseboard, furniture trim and the like, you should consider this machine. It isn’t cheap but you’ll thank yourself every time you walk away from it. I wonder how long it will be before Bosch incorporates this technology into some of their other mitre saws.
