About This Product

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.

            This saw is so amazing in every aspect. The soft start is a feature I never even previously considered in a miter saw and now it’s honestly something I would say is a must. It makes operating the saw not only smoother but more important safer. In addition the hold down is much better than any other saw I’ve seen (with the exception of the Festool) Overall the weight is less than you would expect for a saw this size. Admittedly the controls for miter and bevel seemed confusing but after about 15 min of using it, they are much more intuitive. All in all I’d rate this saw higher than 5 stars if I could! If there is one thing I would recommend or change it would be replacing the laser with a shadow line. Only because of person preference not saying it’s a bad design.

            Very good miter saw smooth cuts and precision

            While a great product, my miter saw was not set up perfectly when I unboxed it, moreoever the saw blade was out of dynamic balance. This obvious to the eye when the blade was spinning. I contacted Home Depot customer service today to ask about getting a new blade. The blade that comes with the saw is a thin kerf (0.17") blade and that could be part of the problem.
