axial glide saw

I've more often than not liked my Bosch tools...and this one will be dedicated to my shop(too damn heavy to move anyway)..it is incredibly smooth..good dust collection for a bag..it's not worth attaching dust collector as both leave some dust anyway..goood positive stops..I paid $649 for it and that was the most I though it should cost..I sold two other saws to justify this purchase..

Pros
fit and finish great..calibrations were as well
Cons
if bolted to your bench in a shop setting the mitre will work fine up up close to a wall,however to mitre at 45 and bevel at 22.5 plus, you will need 3" away from the wall to alow for the motor(left hand bevel) and handle(right hand bevel)..net gain over a slider is mabey 5"..
