Proud Owner I’ve had my Makita LS1221 miter saw for almost a year now. To say the least, I am very happy with my purchase. The cut was perfect, right out of the box, and continues to be so even now. The blade was a better quality than what I thought would be on it and it still gives me the cleanest miter cuts I’ve ever seen. This saw is smooth and powerful enough to go through any of the hardwoods I use. My only regret is that I didn’t spend the extra money and purchase the LS1212 (sliding compound).
