Overall Rating for Makita LS1016L Dual Slide Compound Miter Saw
By Woodworker1 from Cape May, NJ on February 11, 2012
Pros:The angle adjustments are easy and stay where you put them.
It came out of the box not needing any adjustments. Worked great right from the start.
Cons:The dust collection bag that comes with the saw isn't very good at collecting.
Some of the accessories are not readily available. Can't find the horizontal clamp or the crown molding angle gauges. I ordered the gauges and recieved something for another model.
