I've had a 10" Makita for a long while. Great saw generally, but I've always hated that rear bevel lock knob, which appears to be the same on the new saws.
+1 I actually took it for granted until you mentioned it. Agreed. Very awesome features.duburban said:i want a bosch just for the upfront bevel controls and detent override. very smart moves.
Nick, which Makita do you have, is it the 1216?Nick R said:The miter detents on the makita get me frustrated when trying to cut 1 or -1 degrees. Also, could have been the diablo blade, but when cutting handrail last week, some of the cuts had some deflection through them. Dust collection was pretty good hooked to the midi, but only because of push cutting. Any chopping and dust goes flying. Next saw will be green.
Sorry, it's the 1016l.SP Woodworking said:Nick, which Makita do you have, is it the 1216?
