Rated 5 out of 5 by from Professional Great saw. Accurate , powerful, well made. Everything you need from a sliding mitre saw. It's a Bosch and that says it all !

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not that great I bough one one of these saws a couple of years ago, it is cheap for the specs but I have to say that you get what you pay for. I have done a lot of work with the saw (worn out the brushes) but the user experience is not particularly great. The saw needed significant initial tweaking to make it accurate and also ongoing adjustment to make sure it was cutting true. The supplied blade is also very course, if you want to cut wood without splinters you will need to buy a better blade. When you add that expense on top of the initial cost of the saw, it is no longer such a good deal. So, in summery, unless you are on a very tight budget or only needing to make relatively rough cuts you should spend a bit more and invest in a better brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best in class. More cutting capacity (cross cut and depth) that the equivalent DeWalt or Makita sliding, single bevel 216mm. Only the Hitachi has a little more cross cut (but less depth). Was square straight out of the box. This is checked everyday as accuracy is important in the workshop. Still hasn't needed to be adjusted. Not that we need it in the workshop but the top carry handle would be useful for those having to move it around on site. Really like the double dust extraction (there's an extractor hood that sits behind the parallel fence and one that moves with the blade). Does a pretty good job of collecting most of the mess. The laser is pretty powerful and again was dead on straight out of the box. The standard blade doesn't burr too much and is good quality. The soft start is a bonus too. One niggle; the saw does not come with a repeat cut stop. Easy enough to find online for £5-£10 but considering it's just a small metal plate and a screw, I can't see why it isn't part of the kit. All round very pleased and would highly recommend.

Use with Titan stand

I have a titan stand, will this saw be able to be used in conjunction with this?
Asked by: YUNGCHIPPY
Hi YUNGCHIPPY. We are unfamiliar with the stand in question, however after some research we assume you are meaning the Titan YH-MS029A Mitre Saw Stand? If so, this GCM should be able to be successfully mounted, and used safely, on this stand as these type of stands are usually 'universal' and compatible with most makes & models of Mitre Saws.

Asked by: wondernee
Hi Wondernee, unfortunately the GCM 8 SJL does not come with a stand.

Can anyone help identify the correct dust extraction adapter for this saw?

Asked by: JS1976
Hi, thanks for your question. A vacuum hose with diameter 35mm can be connected directly to the dust extraction port on the machine, no adapter is required.

can the depth of cut be controlled with some form of stop on most sliding mitre saws?

Asked by: Dinkytech
Hi there, If the machine is the GCM 8 SJL 240v 0601B19170 this machine is equipped with depth of cut limiting capability. however the GCM 800 SJ 240v as shown on the Screwfix website is not equipped with depth of cut limiting capability.
