  1. Great Little Saw

    Posted by IKSO_99 from Essex, Ontario Canada on 12th Jun 2020

    After some research, I decided on this saw as I have limited space in my shop, portability was not an issue for me, but it is a nice feature. I also got this to fit into an existing miter saw bench, which with a few alterations (to the bench) it fits quite nicely. I've cut a number of different woods already and so far the CM8S has performed perfectly. It seems quite well built, pretty quiet and the clamp works quite well to secure items both to the fence and table. It was not quite true out of the box, but the adjustment was pretty easy and now straight and miter cuts are true and sharp. My only complaint is the dust collection, very little makes it into the bag and even seems to get clogged in the chute going to the bag. Besides that issue, I'm very happy with the saw and would highly recommend.

  2. Great Miter Saw!

    Posted by Slipin Lizard from Portland, OR, United States on 12th Jun 2020

    After looking at the many different miter saw options, I decided to give the saw a go. What a terrific saw. Super accurate & easy to use. Comes with an owners manual that is very well written and highly detailed. This saw is definitely old school... built very sturdy and has no gimmicky features... I've been using the saw for a major home renovation, including a lot of trim work, and this saw makes highly accurate cuts. I replaced the stock blade with a Freud. Cuts so smooth and accurate on trim you can barely see where the cut is when you put the two pieces together. I've read some of the complaints about this saw that I'd like to address... 1) no laser... Who cares! One thing I LOVE about this saw is that if you are having any problems lining up the blade to the mark, you can look straight down through the saw housing from above and see exactly where the blade is contacting the wood. Its a simple feature, its brilliant, and negates the need for a laser which is just another thing to go wrong anyways. 2) not being able to bevel in both directions. Again, who cares? Professional carpenters have been using single sided bevel miter saws for decades without tearing their hair out... its really no big deal.
    To me, this saw seems designed to be low on frills, high on accuracy and performance, which is exactly what I was looking for. The features is does come with are very practical and make using the saw a joy. My only regret is that I didn't get this saw sooner. TIP: if you've got some serious work ahead of you, get the BOSH miter saw stand to go with this saw. Makes working with longer pieces super easy. BOSCH, I love this saw and wouldn't change a thing.
