Old saw gets the chop

Jul 31, 2001
Review by  
Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Compact and reliable, good for all but the heaviest cornice work

Cons:The button WILL fall off- when you lose it use a rawl plug!

The Bottom Line: Great wee chop saw, especially for cornice & pelmits- if this size of cut depth is ok with you, then this is the one to go for


After shopping around for a low cost chop saw this is the fella we went for. Very competitively priced, it is nonetheless a solid saw for the construction trade. Easy to set up and atow away, we have been using two of them heavily on a daily basis for 8 months without a breakdown so far (touch wood!). Given that our DeWalt flip saw (DK942) is in getting fixed every 3 months this is some feat!
Whilst the depth of cut may be too small for some uses, it is the perfect tool for kitchen cornice & pelmit, as well as a hundred other things.
Of course nothing`s perfect- the wee on/off button keeps falling off and getting lost, but a rawl plug will do until you get replacements (Hint- get four at a time, as you shouldn`t have to pay for them)
All in all a lovely item, which has restored my faith in Makita (Sorry, I just don`t like their screw guns at all!) so have fun and keep your fingers clear
