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: toolman77
No. The runout on my blade is less than .002 using a dial indicator. Well within the blade manufacturers tolerance. The arbor bushing and blade washers are ground true and it seems to run straight. The blade will flex slightly at startup, but on mine causes no vibration. I had a 10" first and this saw runs actually smoother.

15 Amp 12 in. Corded Double Bevel Sliding Compound Miter Saw with Built In Laser, 60T Blade, Dust Bag is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 58.

You will see some negative complaints for every saw manufactured on this planet no matter who makes it. The Makita LS1216L is easy to adjust and will give the user perfectly accurate cuts.

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 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

Once it is zeroed, it is totally repeatable. Did an excellent job and will do a lot more. Cuts smooth as glass and the fences work well. Needs to be set up with the correct angled tools and it works as advertised, Makita quality all the way.

First, it's much quieter than other saws I've used (not piercingly loud if you need to make a cut and forgot your earplugs). The dual swivel hold-down is great — easy to quickly set than standard ones. The dual slide mechanism is very tight giving repeated accurate cuts.

Looks like it was rolled out of his truck instead of carried to my house and it was raining bad that day so of course no care was taken to insure the package stayed dry.

Only negative is the dust collection is awful. Most saw dust just flows straight back and never gets to the bag. But I'd still recommend it.
