Makita 2414B

Pope Shawn Paul, amazon.com
21 January 2006
  • Summary: I got this chop saw about a year or so ago. It works great with good power to go through thick 2" and 3" stainless pipe and tube I have cut with it. I would suggest finding the 2414b model as being able to "rock" the saw helps to cut through tough steel. It seems like when you cut steel with a normal chop saw it gets half way through and doesn't cut as fast based on the angle. The 2414b lets you basically adjust the saw angle so that it gets through it quicker.

2414B model

Larry E Butterfield, amazon.com
3 October 2003
  • Summary: It is well worth it to by the 2414B(insted of 2414NB) model. It costs a little more and is slightly harder to find, but it is a much better saw. The pivoting head doesn't seem all that wonderfull in theory, but after a few cuts you will love it. The 2414B is a 5 star saw. It puts out plenty of power to make quick cuts, dynamic parts move smoothly, and the blade guard doesn't block the view of you marks. A very well designed machine.

Not Made in America

Larry E Butterfield, amazon.com
20 April 2002
  • Summary: Recently purchased the 2414NB Cut-Off Saw and bought it based on the reviewer from Upland CA (1999) stating it was made in America. I also went to the Makita web site and felt confident the saw was made in America. It is made in China. Was very disappointed. It is now my understanding there isn't a cut-off saw made in America today so will give this saw a fair try. Hopefully the Makita name will keep it together. Will provide an update in a couple months.

Chop saw info needed/explanation included

Chris White, amazon.com
2 March 2001
  • Summary: Having owned a Makita Chop Saw for approx. 15 yrs. I'm impressed with it's reliability. Now it's time to replace it.....One bit of info. that is needed is H/P not amps. Horse power can give the buyer an idea of the power available/how tough a cutting job may be attempted. I have tried the DeWalt 871 - 5.3 HP and found it unreliable.

Bad economics of abrasive disc saws

Ryan Lanham, amazon.com
13 January 2000
  • Summary: The metal blade chop saws such as DeWalt's sell for 2x to 2.5x the price of this one. However, they work better, and the blade is much more reliable. This was a bad idea from the outset...soft cutting wheels. I argue they are too quick to fail, possibly even dangerous when they do. This is a saw for light aluminum work or for steel studs for drywall or maybe electrical conduit. Any of those applications would be better served by an investment in a metal blade tool.
