Bosch CM12 12-Inch Single Bevel Compound Miter Saw
Bosch CM12 Lightweight and Portable 12-Inch Compound Miter Saw
The theory of work smarter not harder also translates to travel and pack lighter! The new Bosch CM12 12-Inch Single Bevel Compound Miter Saw fits that motto by allowing one-handed portability with a well designed and placed handle and it’s no frills design to reduce weight and make this truly a portable saw.
I run a small remodeling business and most saw applications require me to cut a 1×6 / 2×6 or smaller board. That means, most days, I do not need the size, capacity and weight of a huge compound, sliding miter saw. Being able to carry a miter saw one handed means I can open doors with one hand and maneuver thru them or carry an additional item in addition to the saw.

The Bosch CM12 12-Inch Single Bevel Compound Miter Saw features nine adjustable miter detents and large miter and bevel scales with uniform markings, making them easy to read. Additional a side bevel lock lever allows for quick and easy saw adjustment without having to reach to the rear of the machine.
