The brake finally stopped working so it was time for a new one. Safety first. Both saws are the same exact model so the new one fit perfectly. I’ll get around to fixing the old one as it still cuts just fine.

I don’t cut large crown molding, so I don’t need the sliding rails or 10” blade. It’s light enough to move around from room to room if needed, and makes accurate cuts. Great saw.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Value where it counts Came out of the box perfectly squared up and makes smooth cuts with the included blade. No fancy features but what it does, it does very well.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from doesnt quite cut a 1x6 For the most part this saw is great, but i have three issues. First, it doesnt quite cut a 1x6. Maybe this is true with all 10” miter saws, if so, my bad. But its pretty frustrating to have to make two cuts on such a small board. Second, i cant get the saw to be square no matter how hard i try. I think the blade has a small wobble which prevents it fron staying perfectly square. Finally, it only has two holes to mount it down to a table or stand. My stand uses four bolts to secure the saw, so with only two i cant get a very stable attachment

    how accurate is this saw?

    Asked by: Bobr
    Review from WoodworkBoss.com, regarding accuracy: Accuracy... This is a non-sliding 10 inch miter saw, and although a non-sliding miter saw can be somewhat limited with cutting capacity, there’s also a notable upside when it comes to accuracy. Sliding miter saws are more challenging to manufacture while also maintaining rock solid precision and accuracy. There’s a lot of moving parts, and a sliding arm which moves the spinning blade further from the arms mounting point makes for an inherently less stable saw. This instability can lead to blade deflection, which of course has an awful impact on the accuracy of any miter saw. But this isn’t something you need to worry about with a non-sliding miter saw, such as the Makita LS1040 in this review. The non-sliding arm makes for rock solid stability, and you get the reliable accuracy that comes with having a solid base. The base of a miter saw is also very important when it comes to accuracy. It’s easy to imagine how a base that’s uneven or unstable could destroy the accuracy of a miter saw. This is what holds your work piece firmly in place while making cuts.. An uneven base would be like a house with faulty foundations. That’s why I’m glad to say that the Makita sports a precision-machined aluminium base – perfectly flat and smooth, ensuring reliable accuracy. When it comes to accuracy, part of it comes down to the machine being used and the other part comes down to the user. Makita also includes a few neat features to help with user-related accuracy, in the form of fantastic miter and bevel adjustment settings, and a great fence.
