i have been looking at sliding mitre saws for under £250 and the bosch GCM800S kept popping up as being a good saw for the the money
it looks great but it only has a 6cm depth of cut!
why do they make these saws so small?
i understand that a good saw for a small(ish) amount of money has to lack somewhere, in this case the size of the thing, but making the saw too small makes its uses very limited!
i really want a sliding saw that cuts accurately with little fuss and has the potential to cut whatever a hobby woodworker asks of it
what to get? my budget really cant go past £250
thanks

I bought that saw about 15 months ago, and I must say it's done everything I've needed it to do. It's accurate and portable, though the fence on mine did need a tiny bit of adjusting to cut square. Yes, 60mm depth of cut isn't huge, but the few times I've needed to cut anything thicker I've just done it by hand, and anything wider than about 10" I use my plunge saw.
