Does this have led light cut line?

Asked by Rob May 28, 2019
4
Answers

No. I actually prefer not to have one as I cut on both sides of the line and it kind of gets in my way, plus trying to adjust them and change batteries. But if you really like them, they sell a disc that has batteries inside and as the saw spins it comes on. It is attached to the arbor and slides into the blade. I love this saw and use it more than any other one.

Excellent saw. Cuts like butter. Sliding action is semi-smooth and has up to 12.5 inch crosscut. I had the corded version of this saw for 15+ years and found that (as a woodworker/craftsman) I can use this saw on 90% of all my woodworking needs. Now that I have the cordless version, I don't need to find an outlet near me. Highly recommend.

Miter saw is excellent, I also purchased the wst06 miter saw stand, the handle that locks saw to miter saw stand broke in my hand .

Miter saw 5 stars, wst06 makita stand 1 star.
