The Bosch 5312 12 Inch Dual Bevel Slide is a compound miter saw.
Bosch was founded over 127 years ago and is a leading designer, manufacturer and distributor of a very comprehensive line of power tools.
THE BOSCH 5312 IS EASY TO USE
With its easy to adjust angles, sliding side extensions and swivel and bevel options this mitre saw is a very easy to operate option. It also has the bevel lock and range selector knob at the front making adjustments a breeze.
“If Tim Taylor could see it he would go hoarse from grunting so much at it. Its super smooth, a little quiet actually, cuts through oak like butter and is supper easy to use all of its features, the slide pullouts, the swivel and double bevel all amazing. I absolutely love it.”
The number one thing to look for in a mitre saw is accuracy and this one comes ready to go and extremely accurate right out of the box!
“The saw was accurate out of the box and has an easy system to adjust if it comes slightly off a perfect 90º. I tested the accuracy by cutting an octagon out of some scrap wood, and found the last miter to meet very well, which is rare in a sliding saw.”
The second thing to look for is power! The Bosch 5312 has more than enough power for almost any cutting needs. No matter what the project this saw is a beast!
“This saw cuts great. We are not about molding yet, we built a new stairway so all the wood we’ve been cutting is 2×4, 2×6 and 2×12. Nothing so far has slowed this beast down and the cuts are true & straight.”
For over a century the Bosch name has been synonymous with quality. This mitre saw lives up to Bosch’s excellent reputation.
“As for the quality of all the components of this saw I have no issues with it. It has been a solid performer from day one and is one of those tools that have really earned its keep.”
Whether you are a seasoned contractor or a weekend warrior this saw will stand up to whatever projects you can throw at it!
“I’ve only adjusted the saw once, after a big fall off a deck when another carpenter caught it with a 12-foot board. After the 9 foot fall, I didn’t have the time to test the saw and make sure it was square, so I trued it instead. Other than a small crack in the handle, the saw came through the fall without any damage, and the crack doesn’t affect the function at all.”
