Answer: 
Hello LindsayFarmer,
The answer to that depends greatly on the gauge and density of the metal you would be dealing with. Thinner and lighter metals may be possible, but heavier thicker metals should be cut on a true metal cutoff saw. I've included a link below to a Milwaukee 14" miter saw that may be better suited to the task. I hope this helps.

Answer: 
For metal cutting, we recommend using the Makita 7-1/4" Metal Cutting Saw (4131), or the Makita 12" Metal Cutting Saw (LC1230). We do not recommend using the Makita 12 in. Dual Slide Compound Miter Saw (LS1216L) to cut metal.

I have the Makita LS1040 and it seems really loud compared to other belt driven miter saws. I love the 1040 but Im looking to upgrade to a 12" inch saw, and I have found few video reviews (in english) on this saw and am curious about the decibel level.

Thanks,
Patrick Daly
