Customer Questions & Answers

Does the Makita LS1016L compond saw swivel left and right for miter cuts?

Asked by: Anonymous
Yes, it miters and bevels both left and right.
Answered by: Heff
Date published: 2016-03-01

dose it have 4sildes or just 2 slides

Asked by: Anonymous
it has 2 pairs of dual rails, 4 in total. Also, it uses 6 linear ball bearings on the rails. Very smooth and long lasting. Most other saws just have the one pair of rails, and only use a single ball bearing and a bushing

How do you adjust the bevel angle out of the box? Followed the instruction but it won't move. Is there another lock besides the lever in the rear?

Asked by: Anonymous
Loosen the rear lever and unlock the stop lever on the right side. To adjust the bevel to the right, tilt the saw slightly to the left then push the button on the left side of the housing and the saw will tilt to the right.

How much depth is required in the bench for ideal installation of the LS1016L Makita compound miter saw?

Asked by: Anonymous
The table height is 4 1/2", so I imagine you'd want to make a "pocket" 4 1/2" deep so the saw height matches the bench.

Customer Reviews

15 Amp 10 in. Dual Slide Compound Miter Saw with Laser is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 69.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality miter saw I purchased this saw as an upgrade from a lower end saw that suited me for many years. I am a prior professional finish trim carpenter and have owened a Makita chop saw in the past. I decided to go back to the Makita brand since I felt my first Makita was a quality product. After lots of research and reviews on this saw (even with many noting it was not accurate out of the box, which many saws aren't perfect out of the box) I decided to purchase it. I chose this particular saw for a few reasons: Brand, blade size, double bevel, direct drive motor, and adjustability. Out of the box impressions were high. This is a stout, prescision built saw. The table, fence, slides, handles, and clamps are all excellent. They operate smoothly and precisely every time. The two section slide is a bit odd to me but it seems to make the saw a little more compact and do not hinder blade travel at all. Everything on this saw feels strong and very well built. The included clamp operates well and is very easy to adjust quickly. The included blade wrench has a clip on the base so it will always stay with the saw and not get lost. The presets for cutting crown on the bevel gauge work well however it seems very tight to disengauge it but has not posed any problem. I checked the saw fence and blade with the included square to check for accuracy. Everything seemed accurate from 90 to 45 degrees miter to 45 degrees bevel. Right away I mounted this saw to my mobile saw stand and did not have any issues with the mounting holes lining up or fitment. I used this saw this weekend to build a small shelf for the wife. It was my first real use with the saw. I made many angled cuts including crown moulding as well as many 90 degree cuts. After making several cuts I did notice that the fence is off a tiny bit when cutting 90 degrees. Nobody but myself would probably notice this. I may try to adjust this but since it is such a very very small degree of error I might just leave it alone for fear of making it worse. The included blade cuts well on both trim and raw material. I would say it's a good all around blade but I may switch to a more fine blade for extra clean cuts later on. I liked the size of the miter table as it was plenty wide enough to support wider boards or material. Everyone complains about dust collection. It's going to happen no matter what saw you use and I can't say this saw was any better or worse at it. I did have a larger amount of dust in the bag when finishing than I expected though. After completeing the project I have come to these pros and cons: Pros: Quality. Everything feels solid and it feels and operates smoothly. I'm very impressed. Crown moulding presets are near perfect and I had a perfect outside corner in seconds Miter table adjusts very quickly. The detents are very nice and feel solid when engaging selected angles Table clamp. This is a nice little clamp they include with the saw. Very handy and I was impressed with some of it's quick adjusting features. Cons: Soft start feature. I'm not a fan. I work quickly and I found myself constantly waiting an extra half second each cut for the blade to get up to speed. Laser. While the laser is helpful and decently accurate it's not very bright. Working outside on a sunny day I could only see it if I moved my shadow over it. Size. This saw is a beast. While I love the stout construction is does not store very well. I wish it "folded" down a little bit more. It is also pretty heavy and while I have it mounted to my mobile cart having to move it without that would be a chore. Overall I'm very impressed and happy with this saw. It is a higher priced saw compared to many others but the old saying "you get what you pay for" still holds true. Quality is the first word that keeps coming to my mind when trying to describe this saw. My opinion of Makita products remains high after this purchase and I would highly recommend this saw to anyone. It is a solid investment that I'm sure will serve me for many years and projects to come.

It has problems, both since it was new, and durability. Since it was new, (1) the bevel stop at 90 degrees is soft. Not a positive solid stop at all. Every time the saw is tilted for a bevel cut, going back to 90 is a process that shouldn't be needed. (2) The "twist" to lock for a miter gets real old real fast. For some reason, to lock the miter, you twist the knob to the left. That is exactly backwards and awkward. (3) The top rails do not slide smooth, and no, the bearings will never "break in". (4) When under load the saw will chatter. Add that to rough upper rails and the cut just sucks. (5) The blade guard, when performing a miter, will sometimes drag the off-cut back into blade. This will destroy the plastic shroud within a week. Not to mention send the off-cut into what ever is behind saw, or into the neighbor's yard. Scary. Longevity (1) The miter scale has low grade paint that will rub off with water. (2) The miter detents are in the aluminum base. The pin that drops into them is steel. The saw no longer has positive stops at the most common angles. (3) Plan on replacing the entire fence once a year. It just doesn't hold up. (4) The laser lasted about a year. I really didn't care because it served no purpose for me anyway. (5) Plan on replacing the miter lock mechanism at least once if someone else uses it. It is just too complex of a design, fragile, and isn't user friendly. In closing, I'll say I don't hate makita for all this. I still have and use my 20+ year old Makita slider. I have replaced this saw with a dewalt 717. Good luck, and I hope I'm able to help make your decision on your saw purchase a little clearer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional quality With 35yrs. as a cabinet maker I have used 100 plus saws. Hands down only one even close is festool.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Could not keep it square While I liked almost everything about this saw, the one thing it couldn't do was remain square. I would adjust it and the next day it would be out again, it would constantly be 1/32 to 1/16 out in 5 1/2" 1x material. Other than that, I liked the trigger, the Dual slide, the weight and power. and the cut was really clean, in fact it was the cleanest cut I've seen next to the Festool Kapex (which is 3x the cost), fix the fence and I'll but it again..

After having this for a couple of years I'm ready to give it a well deserved review. This was a gift from my wife and this saw is fantastic. Crisp clean cuts with perfect right angles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I wanted! Great Miter for the price. Comes with a nice blade. So nice that you should buy a good 40t blade to beat on and save the one that comes with it for finishing work.
