Question about Bosch 12" Dual - Bevel Compound Miter Saw with Upfront Controls and Laser Tracking 4212L

1 Answer

Table and base not level (co-planar). Extension wings higfher than base as well.

Bosch 4214L Cmpd Miter Saw. The base and rotating table are not co-planar. The table is highr than the base, more on the left than the right. The extension wings are highert than the table on both sides. Thsis causes cuts to be not square. I did not discover this initially becasue I used short pieces of scrap to calibrate the saw at initial set-up.

Just read thru most of the user manual and they do not address this situation. Most major adjustments they list as Service Center meaning they might have to completely disassemble and find out hy this saw is not accurate, wish I had better news.

Bosch Glide Miter Saw get stuck at 45 degree bevel to the left


Adjusting the miter angle involves two cast surfaces sliding against each other. If those surfaces have some irregularities, high spots on the two surfaces will bind against each other. You may have to disassemble the rotating table from the base and do some filing or grinding.

What is a compound miter saw?


A compound miter saw has a rotating vertical pivot allowing the cutter head & blade to be tilted (or beveled) sideways in addition to the horizontally rotating table. This allows vertical & horizontal angled cuts as well as cuts angled in both planes.

you might try some silicone lubricant spray (available at auto supply) the stuff is very slippery. spary a little on the underside parts that rub on one another, try not to get any of the silicone on the top parts of your miter box as it will get on the wood that you are tyring to cut and it will leave a stain.

The table binds when I rotate it to change miter settings. When I cut miters(45 degree) I'm not getting straight cuts along the edge. The saw is on a plywood base mounted to a Dewalt miter saw stand. I...


Could be the wear plates under the table between it and the base. Or if it doesn't have any then the two mating surfaces are dry and rubbing causing this problem I would suggest going to Dewaltservicenet.com and typing in your model number and downloading a breakdown for the tool. To remove the table on most saws you have to remove the fence and that requires that you square everything up upon disassembly. Let me know and I will try and help further. By the way to clean the parts I use a surface conditioner with something like a scrubbing pad and then after everyting clean use a dry silicone lubricant or equivelant.

Saw har to rotate for bevel cuts


There are tabs on the glide rings and yes there are only 3, you should find indentations in the base for the rings, I would clean them off thoroughly and use a lithium grease on them (film coat) check the table for signs that the rings have dug into it and if so smooth out before reassembling. If tabs are broke off the glide rings you would need to replace them. Let me know if you need more help
