  • Summary: I build wooden speed boats (like the Chris Craft designs from the 1940's) and mega-yacht interiors. Accuracy defines my industry..! These saws (I have 3) are used all day long. However, there's not a single 12" saw on the market that makes perfect cut's, but Makita has gotten close.

  • Summary: I first purchased a DeWalt DWS780 saw and upon first checking for square I realized that the fence is out of line with its self. Meaning that a square put on the back will rock. No way to adjust! So I purchased the Makita and it is perfect.

  • Summary: First review ever, so here goes. This saw is not good even for low-end homeowner use, even worse for professional use, so DO NOT GET THIS SAW!!! Out of square out of the box. Called and said that 0.03" out of square at the base "was within acceptable tolerances". Oh yeah?

Great Saw

Michael Flouton, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a awesome saw, the fence was square right outta the box. The ease of operation and cutting is a pleasure. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is do to the blade it comes standard with. I plan on replacing it with a diablo blade tho.

  • Summary: I got a good price through Amazon. The delivery was quick and item was as described. I have only used the saw for a few jobs and have been satisfied with the results. I'll update this review as I get more use out of this tool.

Great choice in compound miter saws

Kelly P. Cole "Smole", Amazon

  • Summary: This is very well made saw. I love the 4 slide rails that make this saw a sturdy and accurate saw. I had a choice of buying this locally and buying it on Amazon. I chose Amazon because of their great customer service. No regrets!!

high claims. very low quality and accuracy.

marcher, Amazon
17 April 2013
  • Summary: This saw claims it is high on accuracy and quality. I had extreme buyers remorse after using this saw. I work as a full time trim carpenter and expect accurate and durable tools. This saw has bad blade wobble, with the saw housing fully extended there is about 1/8 play from side to side, the tall...

12 inch makiata sliding miter saw

woodbutcher, Amazon
15 April 2013
  • Summary: Saw is accurate at both 45 degree miter locations following a slight fence adjustment. All of the major components are machined from metal which makes this machine more durable. The saw slide locks and the angle adjustments are all forward on the machine which also makes the use of the saw more...
