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.

Answer: 
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.

Given your distance requirements, to comfortably fit 12" stock for crosscut , I don't think the small Makita table saw is a good choice. Frankly I'd use a slicing compound miter saw or a Festool with a multifunction table for that kind of cut.

Answer: 
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.

Answer: 
That is one draw back....the lack of accessory throat plates. But you can make them yourself using the Phenolic Table Saw Insert Kit Item # 26648 that can be purchased from Rockler.

Answer: 
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.

Your best bet is to make one that works best to your advantage. You may want to provide for storage under the saw or drop down sides that can support large material when needed.

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Just okay Strong motor as expected from Makita but the fence and everything else is cheap. I would not buy again. December 8, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 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. June 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. June 21, 2012
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Needs to be slightly smaller and lighter for job site work. Otherwise very good table saw. The saw is excellent except I purchased it thinking it would be like the Makita 2703 or 2702 models. I need a work site table saw that is smaller and lighter. The 2705 is too heavy to lug around even with the portable table that I also purchased. It doesn't fit in my truck very well either. November 19, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. September 6, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by This is a great saw with minor issues. This is a great saw, however, I'm surprised that Makita hasn't developed a better fence system. I also have a Dewalt table saw and the rack and pinion system is the best. February 22, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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 May 22, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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! March 1, 2014
