Topic tags/keywords: bosch bosch cm12 festool kapex dust collection miter saw review

Does anyone have any experience with the bosch cm12. Fine wood-working recently posted a fixed 12 inch miter saw review rating the bosch cm12 as the best overall.

I am trying to find feedback about how good its dust collection is? Is it as good as a festool kapex? I like the accuracy of the fixed 12 inch miter saws but need a saw with good dust collection without the kapex price tag$$.

Any feedback welcomed. Thanks.

What makes the DC so good on the Kapex?

I’ve got their 12” slider. Have loved it for the past 5 yrs. All miter saws suck as far as dust collection. It’s all in the capture and vacuuming that you need to do after you buy it.
