Excerpt: 01. shipping I ordered this from reconditionedsales.com Packaging was pretty normal, like the standard for this type of tool. Huge box to say the least. Ordered on a Friday and received the saw on a Tuesday morning with regular UPS shipping. 02. hardware list Everything was in the box.
Summary: I've had this saw for a year and a half, use it constantly and have never had to adjust it for squareness or miter angle settings. It is easy to transport and setup for on site jobs, cuts wide and/or thick lumber easily and has nice safety features such as a rectracting blade guard and electric...
Pros: Cuts absolutely straight right out of the box, very smooth slide action, has an excellent design
Summary: The quality of the tool is well worth the slightly higher cost. The finish is excellent and all adjustments are easy to get to. The tilt lock is located on the rear of the saw and for some may be a little difficult to reach.
Pros: I looked at a number of miter saws and the Makita had the best balance & workmanship is excellent.
Cons: Fence could be taller but is adequate for 95% of my cutting needs
Excerpt: I HAVE USED ONE OF THESE SAWS FOR 4 YEARS. IT IS ONE OF THE VERY BEST. IT WAS RATED THE BEST 10 INCH SAW FOR 3 YEARS STRAIGHT. THIS YEAR THERE IS A SAW THAT WAS RATED HIGHER BUT IT COST 1200.00. SO, THIS YEAR ..08.. IT IS RATED THE BEST SAW FOR THE MONEY.
Excerpt: Introduction – Over the last 14+ years, I’ve been using a 10-inch Craftsman Compound Miter Saw. It has served me well. In conjunction with the Craftsman Miter Saw, I had purchased a used Craftsman Radial Arm Saw. Unfortunately the Radial Arm saw had a wobble to it. It was not very accurate.
