Customer Questions & Answers

What is the distance (inches) between the front edge of the table (not including the fence rail) to the front of the blade?

Considering this saw for purchase. Need to mount crosscut sled to handle 12" stock. Table must be at least 10" from table front edge to front edge of blade to accomodate a sled safely.
Asked by: Anonymous
It is about 8" from the front of the table to the blade. I don't believe this saw is intended for crosscutting boards of that width. It is a lighter duty saw.

Does this saw need a special throat plate to accomodate a dado blade set?

Asked by: bearman
Yes it does. It costs just under $40 and the part number is: 317934-3 It is very hard to make your own insert plates due to the limitations of thickness.

table / stand for makita 2705

Is there a stand for this saw, i really dont like the stand that has wheels. i would rather have a more sturdy / solid stand.
Asked by: mk2g88
Personally I would recommend building a wood base your self. You can even use your saw to build it. I built a cabinet in my basement for use inside the house. I also build a small base that can be carried to the garage or other sites as needed. There are many metal framed fix bases. Bosch makes one (model TS1001) that I considered, but in the end I want a certain height.

15 Amp 10 in. Table Saw is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makita Table Saw I bought the saw 5 months ago and have been very happy with it. It's been quite accurate, sturdy, and reliable. I bought separately the extension wing for outfeed support and find that very helpful.
Date published: 2016-10-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of Power, well built I had a 12 year old full sized Rigid that was seldom used, yet the 10 amp motor still burned up, very disappointing! This Makita is GREAT compared to the Rigid. Plenty of excess power (first job was ripping 2x4 on 38 deg angle, and it chewed through it no problem), light saw, but sturdy, very solid and well built. Other reviewers complained about the fence? I think the fence is great and it cut true out of the box (I did have to adjust the angle indicator on the blade though). I have had a really good track record with Makita motors, I down right abuse some of my older Makita saws, and they just keep running, so I'm sold on the Makita motor, as opposed to the Dewalt, Rigid, etc., that I just don't think are the highest quality and I seem to hear about them burning up more often. Bottom line, it was worth the extra $ for me to get the Makita.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best saw yet I bought this saw after having to return several others for fence alignment issues. I decided to spend the extra money to rid myself of the headaches of setting them up and returning the lesser brands. I'm so happy I did. this saw is quiet, strong and has the deepest cutting depth of its class. Definitely a good saw for the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best deal in town by far! I researched this table saw for several weeks....read all the reviews about the Makita as well as other comparable saws. For me the key was the higher rpms that this saw delivers plus the Makita's motor IS NOT made in China. The blade arrived perfectly square but I did have to adjust the fence and the mitre to get a perfect cut. I also had to adjust the riving knife to align it perfectly behind the blade. I didn't mind the set up because it forced me to become familiar with the saw. The saw was over lubricated with petroleum jelly and that was a minor annoyance. About the fence, it was easy to adjust and although it locks firm and square, it still can be moved if enough pressure is applied on the out feed end. A quick-grip clamp solves the problem. The mitre fence had a small bit of play, which I eliminated by applying some duct tape on the bottom of the fence rail. It now slides smooth and has ZERO play. I replaced the stock 32 tooth cross ripping blade with a full kerf 50 tooth Freud ATB blade (LU84M011) and have cut several hard woods with only a small drop in rpm, but no burning, binding or lights dimming in the shop. I cut some aged pressure treated 2 x 8s that were very dense and the saw performed well. So far that was the ultimate test. Granted, it was a brand new blade but my radial arm saw did not perform as well cutting the same wood. One feature I really like is the brake on the blade when you turn of the power. It allows you to remove your cut wood without having to wait for the blade to stop rotating.....that's when a lot of accidents tend to happen. The saw has a larger platform than most of its competitors, but I can still carry this saw relatively easily and I am age 56, and weight 168 pounds. One complaint I can think of is the noise the saw makes at start up. It think it has something to do with the braking system disengaging, but it doesn't seem to be a problem other than the sound. During operation, the saw is less noisy than other saws I have used. Overall, I am very satisfied with this portable saw. I feel it is a top of the line saw for a do-it-your-selfer and it you want more power you have to graduate up to a cabinet saw. At the price I purchased this saw I feel Home Depot deserves my attention more often. Thank you HD!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny Easy to assemble. Cuts true and much better than my old table saw. The table is the right size and the extension is simple to use. The rip fence is solid and simply to use. You won't be disappointed with this saw

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lasted 20+ Years As a Hardwood Flooring contractor, I bought this 8" Makita table saw with plastic base, no metal legs in 1989, and still ripping! after using my bosses for over 10 years. Table saws are very dangerous tools. Always respect them, and think about your fingers before you turn it on. Prayer never hurts and may help focus the few brain cells we have left. . . . It's very important to have a sharp blade on your saw, primarily for safety, don't mess about with a dull blade, kick backs are far more likely and of course don't force the tool (aka feeding to fast). I've seen kick backs from 3/4" oak go right through a hollow core door. Don't try to rip wet lumber, it will bind and hurt you or something else. . . . Always stand to the side, not behind the blade and wear glasses and hearing protection (What?). I bent/lost the angle indicator and a "helper" ran a skill saw across tho top inch+" of the fence but it still works well. I've replaced the brushes (under $10, in stock at good tool service type place) and lube the bottom (accessible) bearing, I could splurge and replace them, but it's likely more time and money than it's worth at this point and lubing them seems to really help, Thankfully it is not sealed, and it cuts much better with new brushes and lubed bearings (I actually only did the one that's accessible easily, sprayed the other one). There is allot of resistance cranking it up and down with the small knob, so much that a bigger knob with a small handle would have likely broken. I've attempted to adjust the tension numerous times (easy to do with varied results) to some effect, as well as lubricate it as well. I've had to replace the original power cord with a heavy duty bright Yellow (12 gauge) extension cord (easier and cheaper than a factory part) as well as longer, eliminating the need for an extension cord 3/4 of the time. The plastic base has broken, chipped and cracked to the point that i built a reinforcing frame for the bottom, which helps with stabilizing it as well as adding a bit of weight (ripped 2X4s). I don't think the factory legs are worth the time or money IMHO. Like all Makita (in my experience) tools it's loader than heck but it only bogs down with 3"+ miters on white oak making really thick custom thresholds, but otherwise it does just fine, especially ripping 5/16ths" and even 3/4" White oak quite well, if the blade is reasonably sharp. I'm starting to think the blade spray lube from Bostic is a good investment. It has paid for itself likely a hundred times over. a good tool, likely a safe investment even used. Considering this is a circular saw on a fairly well engineered frame on a cheap base, it has exactly the power one would expect, or perhaps a bit more again, sharp blades make the difference. I've had to learn to include blade cost and time into every third large job if i want to keep a sharp blade on it. Often it's faster/easier to just buy blades than ship them to the quite good, online blade sharpening outfits that guarantee their work. Ya just gotta have 10 blades in stock so you can rotate and make shipping them worth while, It's often good to buy two of the same tool so the blades/parts fit and on occasion I've even used a small miter saw blade on my table saw just because it was sharp and i didn't want to go buy a blade in the middle of the day, or i was feeling cheap, whatever, be careful!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Just okay Strong motor as expected from Makita but the fence and everything else is cheap. I would not buy again.
Date published: 2015-12-09
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Average Product At A High Price The first saw I bought was defective in that the blade rubbed on the insert plate. After many long calls and emails with customer service and many hours of adjustments Makita told me it was unrepairable and I had to return the saw which was a lot of hassle and time. I bought another of the same model because it is the only bench model saw I could find that accepts a dado blade. The saw is completely mounted in a plastic base with only one small blade adjustment for the front side of the blade, no rear adjustment is built into the saw. The performance of the saw is good for cutting but the adjustments are all again plastic and it took some adjustments to get them right before I could use the saw. The saw is built very cheaply compared to the metal frame portable saw I got from a major tool brand. The saw would be okay for a few hundred dollars less and if it wasn't for the dado ability I would have just returned it. Unless you need a dado blade bench top saw I wouldn't refer this saw to a friend.
