Mitre saw for the serious DIY enthusiast

If you are involved in large DIY or woodworking projects where you need to make repeated cuts, cut bevel or mitre joints, take a look at the Bosch 1800 SD mitre saw.


Replacing the PCM 7 Sliding Mitre Saw, the Bosch PCM 1800 SD Sliding Mitre Saw offers even more for the serious DIY enthusiast. From experience I know that cutting mitre joints and bevels is almost impossible if you don't use a mitre saw. When you have to resort to using a mitre box you wonder whether it's worth doing it yourself or hiring someone to do it for you. If I didn't own a sliding mitre saw quite a lot of projects would not get done!





A sliding mitre saw differs from a conventional mitre saw with the added feature of being able to cut longer sections. If you compare the Bosch PCM 1800 SD Sliding Mitre Saw (above) and the previous Bosch PCM 7 Mitre Saw (below), you will immediately notice that the PCM 1800 allows the saw to move forwards and backwards on sliding rods. This means that you can cut much longer straight, mitre and bevel cuts on one machine.

With a powerful 1800W motor, dual bevel mechanism and 254mm saw blade the new features make this the ideal tool for repetitive cutting, bevel cutting, mitre and double mitre cutting through wood and aluminium. The additional of extendable side bars also allow the saw to support larger work pieces, which is essential when cutting long sections of wood.

This model also boasts an integrated laser with horizontal imprint scale to allow the user to achieve smooth and accurate sawing results every time.  The Bosch PCM 1800 SD also features a multifunction clamp for horizontal and vertical fixing of the work piece, dust sealed ball bearings, a dust extraction port with vacuum attachment for a cleaner work area, and a spindle lock for convenient blade changes.

In its class, the Bosch PCM 1800 SD Sliding Mitre Saw offers the DIY enthusiast access to a powerful and versatile saw that reduces the time spent on trimming wood.
