i have the Bosch Gcm12sd miter saw and I can’t tilt it to the right to get it to 0° My knob on the right, the circular one doesn’t move I can’t move it to the left or to the right it’s locked straight up I’m at my wits and have no idea how to fix this. Any ideas?

call or go online to the bosch website. they have online chat help available. I feel like with mine, I have to tilt it a little before turning the knob, like I have to back off the pressure.

a slight update:
I was able to get the miter saw bevel back up to zero.
on p9, knob #41 is locked up and will not turn left or right, I called Bosch and they said that isn’t correct and I need to take it in to a service center to fix it.

Anyone else have this problem? Solutions?

Well it all works well now!

When my wife came home from work yesterday, I took her down to my shop to show her how this doesn’t work correctly and then the knob unstuck!

I think I needed to wiggle the head a bit.

Probably needs a little cleaning and some lube like graphite.
