Very dissappointed

Pros:Seems like a good saw in terms of robustness.

Cons:Not square - bad flaw for a mitre saw.

The Bottom Line: Buy another BRAND saw or buy Makita but take back IMMEDIATELY for refund if not square - DO NOT ASSUME YOU CAN FIX IT!


I purchased this saw in 2007.  It would not saw square right out of the box.  It was off by about 1/16" on 5".  There is no real adjustment you can make as the fence has no "play" to speak of.  So I took it back to the shop where I bought it - they sent it out to the service rep.  He could not get it square and ordered/installed a new fence.  5 months later I got the saw back.  It still did not saw square and the project (new home trims) that I bought it for was over.  I was lax - didn't deal with it, and now I am trimming another house and tried to square the saw again - for the umpteenth time.  Still no luck.  I just phoned the company...they told me "you need to send it to the service rep".  This time it's on my nickel.  This is just a bad tool that should have been outright replaced...but I was so accustomed to Maktia being good quality that I kept believing that there was some way to fix it (I own 9 makita tools - drill, 3 sanders, J saw, router, trimmer, planer and this one).  Unfortunately I wasted the time I should have been requesting a replacement on trying to get a fix and now I own a $700 saw not suitable for fine work - which is the work I do.
