I'm a happy Bosch sliding miter owner. Remarkably accurate angled cuts.

I used just a straight chop Delta at a factory I worked in once. We had one of two of those, a bunch of another brand I can't remember now, and one Milwaukee. No one liked using the Delta. The blade guard would bind up as you went down which would require you to manually move it past the hang up point so you could get it the rest of the way down. The Milwaukee was the nicest to use out of the bunch.

Tim do you have any issues with the blade guard on yours?

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

don't remember having that trouble when it was semi new but since I started back up yes sir it sure does. I was looking into adjusting that and also removing the stand and making a small cabinet for it. the stand takes up too much room. the price and the stand is why I bought it years ago. its on the list to be replaced but not at the top. pretty sure im getting a mast r lift tomorrow or Friday. I have the 7518 and want a 1617 in the future. jessum is the one plate that will fit either. I have an old pc 690 and a 2 hp 1613 plunge so I don't NEED to get the 1617 but its an itch I have to scratch

It wasn't my saw so I never checked to see if it could be adjusted to stop doing that. If you can then post it on this thread Tim. It might help someone else out. I considered the saw to be more dangerous to use and less accurate because of that problem.

I was looking to upgrade a year or so ago and narrowed it to the Bosch glide and the Milwaukee. There were some negative reviews on the glide being true and not being adjustable to correct it but the Milwaukee had virtually no negative comments (except it has no laser) and about that time the big orange put the 12" on sale for $399 our money so I grabbed one. It said in the instructions that it should be dead true right out of the box and they weren't joking. It has a digital readout that is accurate to 1/10 of a degree. Plus it was several hundred cheaper than the best price on the glide. I can highly recommend it to you.

I was out there for a minute tonight and got the blade guard adjusted and it works fine now. there was a screw driver handy so I tried adjusting the C screw until the roller D was moving. then I tried the 2 screws at each end of the arm just a little bit. I worked all 3 of those until it was as good as i could get it. I didn't have a crescent wrench near by or I would have messed with the nut on B. if things get hairy again i'll start there next time. but for now success.
I guess I wasn't supposed to mess with the two screws on the arm but sure didn't hurt anything.
