Sorry Makita, I really wanted to like my Makita LS1013FL saw

I tried to love my Makita LS1013FL but it’s done broke and a bugger to boot. Whatever that means.

I haven’t visited my own ToolboxBlog.com in a while. I use tools everyday. One of my favorite tools is my pocket knife. I lost my two everyday knives and feel the loss everyday. Anyway, I’m revisiting the Makita LS1013FL which I previously talked about here on ToolboxBlog.com.

While I still love the motor.. it’s smooth start and finish… the easy push-pull …up and down… and side to side… But WHAT THE HELL WAS MAKITA THINKING when they put the angle indicator at the fence?

What’s unbelievable to an experienced contractor? A sub-$200 full featured sliding compound miter saw with a laser guide, that’s what! Despite it’s incredibly low-cost I wasn’t too excited to be buying another compound miter saw since I own three of this type of, my most important, saw. An away-from-home project in a remote area on the eastern front of the Rocky Mountains called for some new tools and I couldn’t be more impressed with features-for-the-price of this Ryobi TSS101L Sliding Compound Miter Saw with Laser.

Time, after all, for a new sliding compound miter saw and my choice is the Makita LS1013, a 10″ dual bevel miter saw with laser and flex light. I mentioned in my Bosch review how a Compound Miter Saw is the foundational piece of equipment for my career as a builder. (Second only to my brain!) That said, why then would I go out on a limb and buy a 10″ Makita saw?
