Makita makes great saws and provides nice blades too
Got this to replace a Ridgid 12" slider that was OK but took up too much space, My most used material is 1"x 6" which this saw can cut 3 at a time with ease. Also have a 10" Makita that I really like which is why I decided to try this 12" one. Both saws came with fine blades which is also a plus. There is something about these saws that is hard to describe other than to say they just feel right for me.
Very Happy with purchase. Best price I could find, fast shipping, no damage, and the Makita saw is exceptional quality. As a 30 year veteran carpenter I can vouch for the LS1221--holds settings, lightweight, durable, nice finish to base, minimal plastic, true cuts.
Great miter saw
I received this saw as a christmas gift from my wife and couldn't be happier with it.It was set nice and square right from the box and cuts good and accurate.I like that it came with the table supports and they work well with long stock,plus it also comes with a hold down clamp which comes in handy.This seems like a very well build,quality saw.
