Topic tags/keywords: miter saw

Anybody out there who can give me a knowledgeable review on the new Makita, LS1019L 10 in. Dual-Bevel Sliding Compound Miter Saw? I need about 12” of cross cutting depth and I just can’t get it out of my current 12” Hitachi compound saw. Also, I have tight shop space so I like the short rear extension. A slider seems to fit the bill best and keeps me from setting up a cumbersome “skill saw and rail jig. Other Makita tools I own have held up well, including my old 10” miter saw that lasted about 25 years through hard use and my skill saw that is the first power tool I bought and it keeps on cutting.

Any input or suggestions of other machines would be appreciated. I’m planning on making this the last miter saw I ever buy.

The Bosch SCMS would fit both your space and cutting requirements.

Does the Bosch have a “LAZER”? I can’t help it I always think of Dr. Evil when I say LAZER.

I don’t have to have one but it is convenient.

Don’t think so. But, one can be added. I’ve had lasers on previous CMS units but, not on my Bosch. Haven’t missed it.

I’ve heard good things about the Makita saw. Never used it personally though!
My personal favorite for miter saws is DeWalt, however. They just seem to stay true longer/better.

I’ve also heard that the Bosch “glider” saw is pretty sweet, but sometimes has issues with build quality and tolerances

Any saw that’s a slider is going to have more potential for error. Just the nature of the beast. I get away with a 10” non-slider and an cross cut sled on the table saw. I know that’s not a good option for those of you that need more cutting capacity on a jobsite though.
