Customer Questions & Answers

Does the 12" Makita sliding miter saw have any wobble in the blade compaired to the 10"

I would like to buy a Makita sliding miter saw for my shop in the basement. I'm not sure which one to buy? It will be staying in one spot and not be moved around and used on home improvments and furniture making. Any advice?
Asked by: Anonymous
I've had mine for 5 years. The arbors on these saws are fine. No runout, but blade washers on some of the earlier saws were not fabricated properly and are not flat. That did cause wobble for me. Ordered replacelemt inboard and outboard bearings (that were larger in diameter than the originals) and problem solved. These are really fine saws, but like ANY compound miter saw, they need adjustment/maintenance once in a while.

15 Amp 12 in. Dual Slide Compound Miter Saw with Laser is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 43.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Retracting my previous rating of 5 I previously gave a 5 star review. Upon further inspection doing much larger crown molding, I come to the issue of this saw going back to square both on miter and bevel. The bevel stop is extremely squishy. and the long detent bar that gives you the positive locks on miter cuts has an extreme amount of flex. Even though the positive detent is engaged, the table moves because of the flex of the detent bar. Unfortunately this saw cannot be trusted to go back to zero without squaring the thing every time it moves. I didn't notice his issue because I was doing 2" molding at first and trying out the bora miter gauge. Not that I've moved on, here are my findings. Very disappointed. And yes, I square all my saws out of the box

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best miter saw available. I have been a trim carpenter for thirty years and I have been using Makita slide saws exclusively for the last fifteen years. I have never been disappointed with Makita. De- Walt doesn't even come close in quality. I use my saws every day and the last Makita slide saw that I bought lasted twelve years. It is still going but I bought a new one because the slide bearings where getting stiff and the blade was starting to wobble. This new saw is even better. They have made many improvements. This saw can cut 15" wide shelving and 6-1/2 base standing up. With the soft start motor and dual linear slides, it makes super smooth and accurate cuts. Spend about ten minutes fine tuning the calibrations for vertical and horizontal square and you are good to go. I liked this saw so much that I bought another one nine months later. Don't bother with any other brands this is the saw that you should buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Precise and Smooth We ownwd a Dewalt prior to this saw. This saw is accurateasy and precise. The deck is extremely rigid and allows for wider cuts than my last saw. The laser allows for cuts to made with exact measurements. The locking mechanism on the deck, allows for minor adjustments by just tightening the knob at point, even if it is not in one of the predetermined notches. Our only complaint is theasy amount of saw dus to the saw creates. Whether the bag or a vacuum hose is hooked to the passage where the saw dust is supposed to collect into, the amount of dust is extensive. It seems the passage is not large enough or not located correctly to catch the dust. Other than that one issue, the saw is great and just what we were looking for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I read a lot of reviews on many different saws.... I read a lot of reviews on many different saws. This saw live up to all of the positive reviews by others. The cuts are very accurate and smooth. There is no blade wobble. Adjustments and angles are dead on. Setting just slightly off o degrees locks in and does not pop into the preset. Excellent saw

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm not sure why there is a push for Dewalt/... I'm not sure why there is a push for Dewalt/ Bosch/ or any of the other products because this saw is hands down better than all of them. Construction is better, accuracy is WAYY better and the price is in par. Yes, the saw needs to be set up but ANY saw Needs to be set up regardless. BEST saw.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Saw I would definitely order again however in the future I will have heavy orders like this shipped to store rather than my home. Package arrived damaged while I was at work. The saw had obviously been dropped many times by the UPS impact testing department. The box was falling apart and the saw was falling out with the slides unlocked. Other than some minor cosmetic damage and slight adjustment it was however good to go. The adjustment was easy and the laser was dead on. This is apparently a very robust saw and if the testing it received in shipment is any indicator should last forever since it will never see that kind of abuse again.
