Editor's Review: 10-in. Sliding Compound Miter Saws

by Andy Beasley

review date: August 10, 2006

The best saw in our review of sliding compound miter saws from five manufacturers has many features that make it exceptionally easy and enjoyable to use. The adjustable, four position grip is ideal for either hand; up-front controls make this saw the most convenient for permanent mounting; and the large workpiece clamp operates like a bench holdfast and is the easiest to position. In addition to its miter-detent override, the saw features a microadjustment knob for fine tuning a cut 2° on either side of a detent. That’s good, because the miter scale and its chubby pointer aren’t all that precise (though the detents are). The laser cutting guide aligns with only the left edge of the blade and is too blurry for accurate work.

I have been using this saw for the past year and I am impressed. I used a Makita LS1011 for many years, however, this saw out performs that by a wide margin. The differences are quite wide. The Bosch is much quieter, it doesn't stall cutting hard timber. It can cut a 4X4 with ease and the pull out supports are outstanding. No fumbling around to put the supports in and lock them. The extensions on the mitre work really well. Altogether a sound and well made saw.

I've had this saw set up in my shed for 2 years and it no longer cuts square. I've tried to get the fence squared to the blade and its impossible without machining the fence (elongating the bolt holes) This is really disapointing for a 500$+ saw. I never got close to 500 worth of work out of it. The thing has always been treated gently though may have had slight bumps with 2x's.

I own the 12" and it's one of my favorite power tools. Always a pleasure to use.

I use this saw daily in my work as a trim carpenter. I have had it for several months now and the honeymoon hasn't ended. The micro-adjust and detent over ride are excellent features, as are the upfront controls. It has a very wide swing on the right side for making very sharp angles, something like sixty degrees. The handle/trigger, no matter which way you postion it, has two safety switches so you can easily switch from left to right hand depending on the cut. This is the first saw I have used with a laser, but after a week of getting used to it I loved it. I just started to get a feel for how my mark and how the laser lined up. It doesn't make a perfectly smooth cut in hard woods, but I suspect if I upgrade my blade I will see some improvement there. All in all this is a great saw.

I like BLUE stuff....sometimes there actually are some other colors that I find more attractive.....but BLUE stuff never disappoint me! This one works....it´s heavy...I have a small Makita if I need to get mobile...but it´s hard to leave my blue friend at home! Buy a lot of blades...and have fun! Oh... I forgot... buy the T3B stand to...I got mine together with the saw...Bosch had a deal I could not refuse!


The Bosch 4410L is the best "type" saw I've ever used - dust collection suffers significantly - my small basement shop can't handle the dust - are there any after market solutions?

Best on the market, and I have worked with them all. The ONLY problem I have had is that my 30+ year old Freud blades have been sharpened so many times that they won't completly cut when the adjustment for depth of cut is bottomed out. The 10" blade is probably 9.875" now. If Freud would make this sawblade again, I'd replace it. When I bought it, Freud's market in USA was high end cabinet shops, now it's Home Depot. Enough about politics - The Bosch is a great saw.


I bought this tool based on a number of reviews and handling it in a tool store. This is the 5th power chop saw I've owned. Previous saws were Delta 10", Hitachi 10", Makita 10". This is by far the best engineered of my previous saws. The detents are precise, the numbers easy to read, and the variable handle angle unique. I was surprised by the niceties on the tool. The extensions are not just bent rods, but aluminum "mini" tables. The dust port connects with my Festool CT22 and collects an amazing percentage of the sawdust. I highly recommend this to someone looking for a high-end sliding compound miter saw.

It is a great saw
