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.

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.

    The laser is extremely accurate. Good range of travel for the saw blade. 12” blade accommodates large pieces of wood. Good two-shute vacuum system. Yep.

    The Laser is useless outside, and not much better in shop,and the adjustments for it is about as useless. When you get it set beside the blade cut line it fades almost out. To get the brightest laser line you must set it 1/8 inches or more from the cut path. For the price it should have the Green Laser. OTHERWISE, best Miter ever owned, had two Dewalt and one Harbor Freight.

    Makita Saw 12 Inch.
    Great saw! Picked this up for hobbies and it’s a beast cuts like butter. Set up was easy it’s not too heavy. I do suggest getting the stand as well and you’ll be set. The zero clearance is a great addition I can tuck it right back against the wall.

    Great Saw
    Great saw for making accurate miter cuts. All angles seem to be dead on. I have not observed any problems related to the forward slides as some reviews on other sites have eluded to. The forward slide allows the placement closer to the shop wall. The only reason I gave it four stars instead of five was due to the laser line. Almost impossible to get dead on, but then I have been able to judge and compensate for it not being dead on. I have used the Dewalt saw with the shadow light which is better, but the I replaced a Dewalt 12" for other issues with that saw. Overall, this is the best miter saw with maybe the Festool but the price made it a easy choice.

    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.
