Product Overview

The Makita 12 Dual-Bevel Sliding Compound Miter Saw with Laser (model LS1219L) combines capacity, accuracy and efficient dust extraction in a more compact size, with a unique 2-Steel Rail Sliding System that offers a reduced footprint for operation flush against a wall. The innovative direct-drive gearbox and guard system is engineered for increased vertical cutting capacity of baseboard (6-3/4) and crown molding (8 nested). It will also make 15 crosscuts at 90. The saw miters 0 to 60 left and right, with positive stops at 0, 15, 22.5, 31.6, 45 and 60 (left or right). The bevel lock is located in the front of the saw for easy access and quick adjustments from 0 to 48 (left and right). The saw is powered by a 15 Amp direct drive motor with soft start, a key point of difference. Direct drive enables smoother start-ups and consistent, constant power with no belts to slip or replace. The electric brake provides added convenience. In addition, the electronic speed control maintains constant speed under load for smoother, higher-quality cutting.

I have seen the same thing about being discontinued. I purchased it online at HD in March and had it shipped to the store. It took about 10 days to get it to my local store.

The laser stays on even when the saw is not running. It has a separate on/off switch. It lights through the entire cut.

Built like a tank
Just got this saw after having used the 12" sliding Ryobi and the difference is night and day. The dust collection is fantastic and the blade cuts smooth as butter. The soft start and relatively quiet motor make it a pleasure to use. ALSO, please note that this model does not come with those dinky metal bar outfeed supports, it comes with REALLY NICE cast aluminum ones (see photo) that are flat and square, a massive difference from what is shown in these photos. This sucker has been going on sale down to 499 quite often lately so just be patient, it's a killer deal at that price.

Very nicely made saw, fit and finish is excellent but was unable saw where it would cut the same on a plunge and a sliding cut while both methods would make a concave cut. I was certainly disappointed since it is such a nicely made saw.

This saw is built very well, many great features, awesome dust collection. Has soft start which is actually a very nice thing to have... Quality wise I think it's the best miter saw I have ever seen, but there's one drawback - the weight, this tool is heavy as f#@k, I'm thinking about buying some kind of saw stand with wheels, but if you buying it for the shop then no worries. Sliding rail design does help save some space as we are able to put saw close to the wall.
