The Reviews


The Bosch 5312 compound miter saw is one of the best saw by Bosch. This saw seems the most accurate, sturdy, easy and quick to use, and easy to carry. The saw is accurate out of the box and also has a simple system to adjust. The upfront controls make tilting the power head a breeze. It’s made trim jobs like tall baseboard and crown molding go faster and easier. It is very well designed for daily use. Also, it is very precise and flexible to make different cuts quickly. Good rugged saw with lots of features.


Bosch has an awesome version of this saw with a funky linkage mechanism, but the cost is very high, and the space saved just does not add up to enough. The stock blade is junk. Adjusting the side to side bevel to square is not as easy as the directions make it out to be. It never collects dust. The other downside of this saw is that kind of little hard in making accurate long cuts. There is a lot of lateral movement when fully extended. There are no adjustments to eliminate this lateral movement so in order to make accurate long cuts. The side extensions are not at the same height as the main table surface of the saw. The bevel or tilt adjustments on this saw just seem inadequate or hacky.


The Bosch 5312 compound miter saw has some great features which can make it work great and easy to use. It is kind of durable and accurate saw. The stand of this saw is awesome. The stand is compatible with many other brand saws as well. This saw can work great for all any projects. In addition, sets up fast, breaks down fast and the pneumatic wheels are great. Thus, I think the Bosch 5312 is one of the best saw that is appropriate recommended to use.
