    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent
    I'd like to say that Veritas makes some of the finest hand tools i know of.I used the shelf drilling jig to make 2 solid maple bookcases, with adjustable shelves.
    Using this jig is nearly makes a weekend warrior like me look like a professional.
    This jig makes flawless adjustable shelves.
    Save yourself a headache and buy the extensions as well.

    3-0 out of 5 stars A well made tools with flaws
    This tool was beatifully conceived for someone who is always in a hurry to drill the correct spacing however the drilling in itself is flawed, instead it should be some kind of vix bit with self centering drill bits and interchancheable bits instead of bushing and having to move that litlle plate that holds the bushing in place, please taper all holes on jig to accept vix bit and we will be in better shape.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Accurate, but be gentle - prep needed for router work
    First, kudos to Amazon. I ordered this Monday, and it arrived today (Wednesday) - on free SuperSaver shipping. Wow.

    I have been an amateur woodworker for 35 years. We are building a new home, and I am doing all of the trim work and making all of the cabinetry. I bought this jig because of the significant number of upper cabinets that have adjustable shelves in them.

    The jig is very well made, and the bushings fit snugly into the sled and the rails. holes for support pins are placed very accurately using this jig. Like the other reviewer here, I am using the jig with a router/down-spiral bit/bushing combo rather than a drill/bit/stop collar setup. To do this without encountering flex in the rails and tipping of the router, it is very helpful to cut a couple of 3/4 x 3 "sleds" and attach them to the router base just outside of the Veritas sled. This adds a great deal of stability, and makes it virtually impossible to tilt the router as it plunges (causing an oblong hole.)

    I did find that it was easy enough to make the entire jig flex with little more than gentle tightening of the rods. It will be interesting to see if the pressure that can be applied without flexing will turn out to be enough as the project moves along.

    I appreciate the thought and effort that goes into a well made tool. This one is nice. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Amazingly Accurate Piece of Machinery
    Ive used many different Makita tools since the late 70's. Not all were gems, but the majority of their tools are usually among the best and most durable out there. The LS1013F sliding mitre is one of those tools after using it, you dont know how you did without it. Smooth, well designed and extremly accurate at every angle. Good Job!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Saw
    I recently purchased this saw (the model w/o the light). Excellent quality and cut precision.Easy to use and powerful.No complaints!My first miter saw, and I'm so glad I purchased this one.The sliding feature is so handy, can cut boards up to 12" long!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Stop now and buy this saw
    I was looking to purchase a 10" sliding dual compound miter saw and I figured if I was gonna pay I might as well buy the best one out there. One big thing I was looking for was a saw that held it's angles. I'm tired of constantly checking my miter angles on my table saw and it was worth paying an extra $100 or $200 for a saw that was good.

    I narrowed the best two saws down to the Hitachi C10FSH and the Makita LS1013F.

    I went to Lowes and saw that they had the Hitachi C10FSH which let me check it out first hand. The plastic felt cheap and the base was very small. So small infact that the saw can fall over unless its bolted down. This wasn't for me since I need my saw to be portable and sometimes it'll find itself on a flat table and not bolted down. Since it was small it would also not hold wood very well for being cut.

    I decided to purchase the Makita after talking with woodworkers. They told me that working on the hitachi was a nightmare.

    This saw is GREAT. It is quiet. It is about half as noisy as a 7.5" circular saw. You can use it in a closed garage without ear protection. The dust collection gets about 85% of the saw dust into the bag. The unit feels very sturdy unlike the Hitachi. There are three main adjustment knobs. One to unlock the sliding arm, one to adjust the miter, and one to adjust the bevel. The Makita is silky smooth in all adjustments and is very well balanced. Adjustments are not awkward with this saw. There are many positive stops which are controlled by a front lever.

    The saw has a built in handle on top of the unit to allow you to carry it.

    All in all I love this saw. I cant find any faults. It's simple to use and adjust and feels strong and sturdy.

    Some people say this saw is expensive but you get what you pay for. Get a cheap saw and you'll be checking your adjustments all the time and pieces will fly off. Who wants to bother with stuff like that? You'll have this saw for 30 years. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    We know why Popular Woodworking named this sander Tool of the Year for 1999. Whether you're a woodworker, a cabinetmaker, or just serious about the finishes around your home, Makita's random orbital sander delivers power and control in a light and easy-to-use package that won't gouge or leave swirls on material. The palm grip fits comfortably in most hands and the on/off switch remains quickly accessible to the thumb. All-ball-bearing construction in the 2 amp, 12,000 rpm motor does a good job reducing vibration for easier control and comfort over extended use. We really liked the dust-collection system on this sander. Eight holes in the bottom and bands of vents along the outside remove waste material efficiently and translate to less cleanup, a clearer line of sight, and precise sanding throughout the entire project. Sanding pads are the hook-and-loop type and change quickly and easily. --Justin Paul ... Read more

    • Conveniently located on/off switch for one-handed operation
    • Lightweight (2.6 lbs.) design
    • Uses quick change hook-and-loop abrasive discs

    2-0 out of 5 stars Hook & Loop pad fails; expensive to replace
    I've had my BO5010 for three years, and it hasn't seen a lot of work -- just handyman stuff every few months. Until now, it has been pretty useful, though the dust collection bag is poorly designed.

    Yesterday in the middle of a job the sanding disc kept flying off. The rubber sanding pad on the base provides the hooks for the hook-and-loop system, and that pad somehow lost its hookiness. No new pad will stick to it.

    I don't know what caused this: I was using a light touch, and my sanding disc storage organizer uses pegs to ensure the disc's holes line up with those in the pad. Whatever the cause, I now have to order a replacement pad which is nearly one-third the cost of a new sander and may take a week or more for delivery. I'm not sure whether I'd be throwing good money after bad -- I might be better off buying a brand new sander by a different manufacturer.

    You might, too.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Durable and decent enough
    I had gone through 3 Porter Cable models before buying the Makita.The motors would seize up and quit on the Porter Cables.After thousands of hours behind a Porter Cable the differences I noted with the Makita were a little less power and a tendency to wander.It is hard to explain what wandering is but holding the tool on the top, the disc tends to skitter more than the PC I was used to.This limits the hand position to the middle of the tool to control it effectively.When you can't change hand positions after hours of sanding it can be a pain.The dust collection like on all sanders is a joke.You need to attach the sander to a vacuum to save disc wear and effectively collect the dust.Theeight holes on the Makita collect the dust better than the five hole PC. So far the Makita has far outlived all the PCs I owned.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Five Cents Worth of Duct Tape Makes It a Five Star Sander!
    This is an aggressive sander that leaves a swirl free finish.The dust bag is terriable until you seal it with a 10 inch strip of duct tape.Once you do that it actually surpassed the dust control my old DeWalt "dustless" sander provided.

    I was so pleased with this sander I have bought 2 more since my original purchase. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Quite possibly the most perfect work gloves we've seen. Yes, they cost a little more, but in our book, they're worth it. They protect your hands from impact, elements, dirt, fibers, splinters, shards and all kinds of occupational hazards. The accordion-style padded knuckles protect and defend while affording you complete flexibility. The guards on the fingers and the back of the hand are rugged, molded Thermal Plastic Rubber and can take quite a hit--and we say, far better the gloves than your hands. Other gloves we've seen make it tough to grasp small objects like fasteners, but the Clarino Zeus rubberized surface lets you pick up and grip even the smallest stuff. They go on easy and come off easy, thanks to the hook-and-loop closure on the wide-banded wrist. Yes, they're great in the building, construction, and mechanical fields, but we think they'd make great landscaping and gardening gloves, too.--Kris Jensen-Van Heste ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Stupidity Tested
    In a momentary lapse of sanity I decided to ignore my better judgement and cut a too small piece of oak using my table saw rather than the band saw.The rest was history in a flash.The blade back grabbed the piece and slammed it down on my fingers with a 3hp force that shattered the hardwood. I was almost afraid to look into the glove but amazingly Not Even a Bruise! I now own 3 pairs.BTW, the XL fits me like a normal Large.

    3-0 out of 5 stars A nice glove, but way too big.
    I realize that I shouldn't look a gift horse in the mouth but -
    The gloves were included in my order for a chainsaw (over $100), but they are available in XL only. Something a little smaller would be useful. I don't feel safe wearing these monsters.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Expected more
    This unit is flimsy and not easy to set up.It's not easy to set up because the design of this machine is done very cheaply.If your using a course stone you will run out of water very quickly, which is not convenient.Very messy to use too.I did get the unit set up to sharpen some jointer blades and the results were ok.I honestly don't know much about sharpening and that is why I was hoping this machine would be straight forward to set up,use and get very good results.It's not.A good quality sharpener for blades and tools must cost a lot more!If possible, see one in action before you buy it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Source for accessories
    I've been in the process of researching an electric sharpener and have decided upon the Makita 9820-2. I've noticed several reviews that raise the concern over the lack of a coarser wheel.

    Highland Hardware (www.highlandhardware.com) has developed their own "Green Wheel" for this unit, a 120 grit wheel that will ..."grind the hardest steels as aggressively as a course wheel on a bench grinder".They also have a HandTool jig for sharpening chisels and other tools and a 6000 Grit Fine Wheel. Hope this helps!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic
    First the downside: I agree with another reviewer regarding getting other wheels. Accessories are very hard to source. However, the wheel that comes with the machine is perfect for obtaining and maintaining a very sharp edge on a blade in good condition. If you have serious gouges in your blades, you may want to consider a one-time sharpening by a pro and then use this machine to keep the edge.

    The good stuff: It works perfectly!! The directions were simple enough and the operation of the machine is basic: start the water flow, set the angle guide, turn on the wheel, and bring the blade to the wheel.The manual does not speak specifically to sharpening chisels (the holder provided is for planer/jointer blades and so are the instructions). But here's how I did it. Don't use the holder. Place the chisel ("back") flat on the guide. Adjust the angle of the guide so it brings the chisel to the wheel at the correct angle. Take the chisel away, start the machine and place the chisel on the guide but away from the wheel. Bring (slide)the chisel forward on the guide, keeping it flat on the guide. Keep it moving forward until it makes contact with the wheel. Think of it as trying to slice away a very thin layer of the wheel rather than grinding the chisel with the wheel (if that makes sense).

    I am very pleased with the results. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Electric MotorIs Easy On Your Ears
    I wasn't aware that Makita made chain saws until my nephew told me about the UC4000 he saw on Amazon.The motor is quieter and much lighter than gas powered models with the same torque and horsepower.I bought him one for his birthday and he loves it.When he opened the box, he said he was the only kid in the first grade to have one.He earns extra money doing yard work and pruning his neighbor's trees when they aren't home. What he likes best is not having to buy gas and oil, and looking for a place to store the containers.

    5-0 out of 5 stars This was a perfect Christmas gift....
    ...for my sister. She practically begged all of us to buy her a chain saw this year. She's been obsessed with chain saws ever since she was a child, but never owned one before. I decided to make her dream a reality and buy this Makita chain saw for her.

    There were tears of joy in her eyes when she unwrapped it. Before I knew it, she was out in the backyard sawing down stuff with it. She totally loves her Makita chain saw!

    My sister's often sculpted things out of wood. She says she's going to use her new chain saw to sculpt me a wooden statue of Bob Denver to put on my front lawn. Turns out my present to my sister is going to result in a present for me. Wooo Hooo!

    Judging from my sister's reaction to this Makita chain saw, I'd say that if you're ever going to buy a chain saw...mak(e)-it-a Makita chain saw!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Electric not Gas!
    It is hard to believe that an electric chainsaw can cut as fast as a gas chainsaw, but this chainsaw does just that.I have to use a gas chainsaw to ruff cut the logs when I am away from the house but I use an electric chainsaw when I am near home to cut the logs into stove sized pieces, so I don't have to be bothered with the fumes and noise of a gas chainsaw.I had been using a McCulloch 3.5hp electric chainsaw and it stopped cutting because a plastic drive gear stripped out.When I contacted Makita, I wanted to know if their chainsaw had any plastic gears in it, they assured me that it was all metal gears and ball bearings through out.The Makita is supposed to be the same horse power as the McCulloch that I had, but it cuts much faster.I have gone through two McCulloch chainsaws over the years.One with a bad commutatorand the other with a bad gear.After using the Makita, I wish I had bought the Makita first. ...

    Editorial Review

    Power polishers help cars, boats, floors--or anything else you take a shine to--come clean. The Makita polisher uses electronic speed control to maintain a constant 600 to 3,000 rpm, even under load, and that combined with multiple speed settings results in little risk of burning paint. The polisher converts easily to a sander, and quick-change hook-and-loop sanding pads eliminate clamping, bending, and tucking. We like how the handle provides secure, comfortable grips for use at any angle, and the lock-on trigger means you can go long distances with minimum fatigue. The 10 amp motor provides plenty of power, and, as with all Makita products, it's designed for long life, with easily accessible brushes that can be changed outside of the tool's housing. If you like to maintain a flawless façade, this tool deserves a place in your arsenal. --Justin Paul ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great polisher-sander!
    This is an incredibly fine tool--the best 8-inch polisher-sander I've ever owned--I've got two of them. I've had older Milwaukees, a Porter-Cable, a Hitachi, and also an earlier Makita; this one beats 'em all. (Though the newer ones by the other manufacturers might be competitive.) The speed control is great--it adjusts to real slow for delicate work, and plenty fast for other stuff--and also, you can change the speed with your thumb as you polish or sand, without pausing--a very handy plus. And the arching side handle is an improvement over the old straight style. I've got nothing negative to say about this tool--except maybe one tiny thing: the trigger also adjusts the speed, but on the ones I have (from a couple years ago), that doesn't work too well; it goes too suddenly from slow to fast and so is relatively uncontrollable. But it isn't a bother, since you can just use the thumb adjustment, and I assume that's been fixed, anyway, in the recent models. This is just a great tool that's a pleasure to use.

    5-0 out of 5 stars ITS THE MAX
    I had a body shop for twenty years. Spent more time behind a polisher than would be believed if I stated it. Polishers for automotive use were all 2400 RPM. It was either on or off, and no variable speed. When trying to feather in an area, I used to feather the switch on and off intermittently. This polisher by Makita takes it to the next level. The moment I took it out of the box and plugged it in, it was preset at one on the speed dial. I squeezed the trigger, and it crawled around so slow I couldn't believe it. Then when setting it at a higher number it gave you variable speed on the trigger. That way you had the option of adjusting by the trigger, any speed up to the preset number. Additionally, you could press in the lock on, and it would remain at a constant speed. In plain words, every option was considered, well thought out, and integrated into the tool. Leave it to Makita to make another dead on accurate tool. Add to that the built in smart electronics, which gives you just the right amount of power to keep it running at the preset speed, even when it encounters more resistance. That keeps the speed constant.
    I do woodworking projects now, and was looking for a solution to give me a polished finish. The problem was that my old polishers had two speeds. Flat out 2400 or stop. Additionally they had only one option for bonnets, or cutting wheels: Large!
    The Makita 9227C comes with a hook and loop 7" backing pad, and an included centering spline. Their are nice polishing wool bonnets that work with the hook and loop pad. Their are also hook and loop lambswool polishing pads that are close napped, and make for a very tight clean edge. Great for getting into those otherwise inaccessable areas. With woodwork, you may be polishing a 3 inch apron for example, right up against the underside of the table top. That requires a hook and loop backing pad, with a tight nap hook and loop pad.
    Makita also has available as an option, the side handles that we have all come to know, the standard throughout the years. Those side handles are my personal choice for automotive. The handle that this 9227c comes with does not feel intuitively comfortable in my opinion. At first I thought that handle would grow on me after awhile. NOT, it is uncomfortable. I had bought the Makita 4 1/2" grinder at an earlier time from Home Depot, when they run their tool sale, just about giving it away. That side handle works perfectly on the polisher as well. So for the super cheap price, it is nice to have the handle, and the grinder.
    Additionally, this polisher is available at the Makitatools.com site with the side handle only instead of the wrap around handle. The part number on that one is 9227CY. Since the side handle is available as an option, I chose to go with this one, and pick up the handle, to keep all options open.
    Makita also had the standard rubber backing pad with the hex nut for the center, so you can use the standard bolt on cutting wheels, and be able to use the tie on bonnets on top of it.
    If you are planning on doing the mile deep gloss level of polishing, you will need the 2400 speed range that this Makita gives you. (As well as the other speeds) The polishers that only go to 1750 is not what you want for truly incredible gloss. Especially when using high build finishes like urethanes, and well cured lacquers.
    With all that in mind, that makes this Makita the top of the heap. It does share that position with the Milwaukee 5540, but that is another review. I like the Makita because it is 6 pounds instead of 9 like the 5540, and has 99 percent of the power, and 25% better price tag. The Milwaukee comes with the side handle instead of the wrap around.
    All in all I am glad I bought the Makita although I must admit the Milwaukee is tugging at me as well. Highly recommended.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great Planer!!
    I needed a good heavy duty planer to scarff 1:8 slope joints in plywood sheets (I build boats). This planer has met all of my expectations. Plenty of power. Accurate cutter depth control. Extremely easy to change/sharpen blades. I would have given it five stars except for the useless chip collection port. Chips and dust dump out right by the motor fan! Small inconvenience though. All in all a very nice tool!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Tymothy Park, builder
    I used a friend's Porter-Cable Model 367 power plane and quickly began to wonder how I got along without a power plane for so many years. I thought I'd get the same model Porter-Cable, but it appears Porter-Cable replaced it with another model. Further, all the reviews I read about Porter-Cable power planes in Amazon.com left me somewhat confused so I thought I'd try Makita, a brandwith which I've had good success. I went for the 4 3/8" model because I could true a built-up beam in one pass. When I got the Makita I first noticed the weight difference between it and the Porter-Cable. The Makita is heavier and at first blush seemed better suited for a shop rather than a jobsite (one must always keep in mind bigger might not be better). The next thing I noticed is the drive belt on the Makita is not fully enclosed like the one on the Porter-Cable (I nicked my finger with it, and for a brief second I thought it was the blade that nicked me). Finally, the exhaust port on the Makita dumps out the chips (often plentiful) right next to the air intake for the motor (the Porter-Cable has a two door system that lets you vent the chips to either the right or left side). Despite these short comings I really like the Makita. It's way powerful which I believe calls for the extra weight and compared to, say, a Mag 77 worm drive saw it's a fly weight. It's very smooth in part because you're limited to 1/16" cut, the cutter head turns @ 16000 RPM, and my blades don't yet have any nicks in them. For me the bottom line is how much I use a tool, and it's a rare day that I don't press the Makita into service. Compared to no plane there is no comparison. Compared to muscle powered planes, I think you will wonder why it took you so long to power up. Compared to other powerplanes, well let's say the Makita's flaws are evident (are you listening, Makita), but it's still a way useful tool. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Purist furniture makers frown on the plate joiner, or biscuitjoiner as it's often called, but this model might change a few minds.The joinery ease is unparalleled with this method, and Makita reallyknows its business. This model offers a 10,000 rpm, 5.6 amp motor, sixcutting depths for different biscuit sizes, and a precision fence thatangles with positive stops at 0, 45, and 90 degrees. Changing biscuitsizes is as quick and easy as turning the adjustment dial. Therack-and-pinion fence's action is as smooth as any on the market atthis level, and our test cuts were clean and dead-on accurate. Sure,you can keep on cutting mortise and tenon joints if you want to, butthe smart woodworker is taking one of these home. For us, it fallssquarely into the gotta-get-one category. --Kris Jensen-VanHeste ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best example of the KISS method
    Like a couple of other posters, I'm not a huge fan of using biscuit joiners but on large glue-ups, mine still gets quite a bit of use, mostly for alignment.

    I have used another popular brand of biscuit joiner and find the Makita top notch.I like it because it's not overly complicated at all and the chips really fly as opposed to clogging up in the chute.The fence is substantial, easy to adjust / lock and it's very straight forward to use.I don't want to have to "refresh my memory" for its use on those few occasions when I need biscuits.If for some reasonI needed another, I wouldn't hesitate to buy another Makita for this tool.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Works well but is a dying breed.
    I will preface my review with a blanket statement.Every tool has its job.For crude joinery I think this is top notch.For fine woodworking I would never use this.Glues are so stong now days I would just soon glue and clamp it and not have the risk of the bisqit blooming through the wood.Again do your homework on technique before buying tools.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Silky Smooth & Powerful
    Compared to my old style Porter Cable this tool rates on a scale of one to ten as an eleven!Dust collection is the typical side bag affair - plan on dumping it after 8 to 10 cuts.Or do what I do and leave the bag off and let the chips fly!You can adjust the outlet so they shoot away from you.This tool can make all the cuts but PC's FF size - which IMHO is too small for this size tool anyway.This is one of the best hand powertools I own.

    5-0 out of 5 stars This will change the way trim carpentry is done
    I have owned this saw for about a week now.I have used it every day for at least three hours at a time.I have been using it to cut 3" baseboard and shoe moulding, and other various punch list items.I am now cutting as quickly as a pro and I have only been doing this for a short time.I use this light saw to move from baseboard piece to baseboard piece as I work myself around a room.I lay each piece down, mark it in place, or measure, depending on the piece to be installed, and then I cut it right in place.For coped cuts, I use my toolbox (not the box provided with the tool) as a bench

    A charge will last about 3 hrs.This means I will need to buy at least one more battery at $175, but even with that, it is worth it.I also noticed that the blade size (8.5") is a standard size and can be bought at my local Home Depot.

    This lightweight saw has adequate power and holds a decent charge overall.I am glad I bought it. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Quality, for special apps and some general use
    I am a home builder. Anticipating some close quarter work, I picked up the Makita DA3010F. It sat in my tool box for a few months while I was putting up walls, beams and joists. As I progress into more detailed internal framing, I've been going to the Makita for what I will call light Hawg work. Like the other reviewer says, its lighter and won't break your wrist like the real thing. The Makita will turn a 3 or 4 inch hole saw but it is not happy, becoming too hot to handle. Within its design limit, it will easily turn 1" flat bits and long augers to around 3/4" dia. I can corroborate that 1) the feel and sound of a precision tool, and 2) you can dial the no-load speed down to like one minute per revolution. Yes, the LED light is useful for working where the sun don't shine. One problem, not specific to Makita, is that when a angle drill with paddle switch is used close-quarters and breaks through the work, the tool can get jambed up against the work with no way to turn it off. Occupational hazard I quess. This tool is recommended to those who have everything else.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Worth every penny
    I needed a nice right angle drill for tight quarters.This fills the bill quite nicely.

    The drill is beafy yet is compact.It has great torque and is comfortable to operate.I can vary the speed to my taste and the light is indespensible in those dark corners where the drill is used most.

    The quality is high.This machine is built with years of service in mind.

    After spending lots of money on cheap drills, I found this purchase most satisfying.

    I highly recommend this tool

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best jigsaw I've ever used!
    Plenty of power, comfortable to handle, and has less vibration than any jigsaw I've ever used. Even the light, which I at first thought was just a gimmick, has come in handy on several occasions. I also own two Milwaukee jigsaws, two Bosch jigsaws, and have used numerous others, and while the Milwaukee and Bosch saws are excellent tools, in my opinion, the Makita is definitely the cream of the crop.

    I used to own a porter cable jigsaw.After I read a tool test in one of my wood magazines, I sold my PC and bought me the Makita.One of the best decisions I've ever made.I should have bought this one the first time.It is just a great power tool.I HIGHLY RECOMMENDED to anybody that is thinking of buying a jigsaw.It is powerfull, handles awesome and it is very quiet.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Nice saw
    I chose the barrel grip over the handle type mainly because of the greater control in fine cuts. Plus it lets you get into tighter spots, like cutting a fixed shelf out in a cabinet.

    This is a powerful saw. It went thru 3/4" plywood on the smallest orbital setting without batting an eyelid. Would definitely use it on shorter cuts instead of pulling out my circular saw. It has the capacity do cut over 5" thick in wood ?? WOW!!

    The LED is nice and necessary if you've got distracting shadows in your line of cut.

    The vibration was very minimal and I think thats a big plus since my wrist hurts after an all day project, must be getting old.

    Tool change is really a snap, and takes 2 seconds.

    Jigsaws have come a long way since I last bought one 15 years ago. That one was a pain. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars For myself - Best bang for the buck.
    I bought this saw a year ago and have been 99.9% satisfied. I recently built a 3000 sq./ft house and bought the saw for trimming out. My builder uses a Dewalt 12" double bevel and the reason he went with 12", is to cut 4x4's in one pass. I on the other hand am not building decks yearly as he does. I used his saw for a few cuts and noticed blade wobble with the standard 12" blade that came with it. I didn't need to pay extra to cut a 4x4 depth, but I think it's worth paying extra for a slide saw to cut a wider board. I'll cut a wider board more often than a deeper board.

    I have used the Makita LS1013 for standard size crown (3-1/2") and 5-1/4" base. I've also trimmed two staircases (newel post, balusters, handrail, and wainscot). For a "Jack of all trades", master of one (electrician), who does not handle a saw daily, this saw is very precise. It can shave a mm, or any other "frog's hair" measurement consistently. The double bevel keeps you from having to flip your work all the time when cutting miters. The crown stops are convenient and the table will miter up to 47 deg. The motor connected to the blade, with no belt, makes for a smooth - low vibration power transfer and the saw head is not bulky and easy to push down.

    The only "con" I have is that the degree scale for the bevel is a bit small in diameter. I noticed the Dewalt 12" had a larger diameter scale making it easier/quicker to place the pointer. The Makita scale marks are so close together, it takes more patience to get it right.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Makita 10" Dual Compound Slide Saw
    Nothing less than what you'd expect in quality and performance in a Makita product.Well made and easy to use.The one design flaw is in the short fence which makes it difficult to cut large or tall molding. Reconditioned tools from Makita are a bargain, coming with a factory warranty - hard to loose.

    Editorial Review

    Designed for professionals seeking a lightweight and quiet tool, this belt sander from Makita delivers precision control and performance that won't wear you out. The popular Makita motor is known for long life and reliability, and, unlike most other brands, the brushes can be accessed and changed from the outside casing.

    We found the adjustable speed dial to be spot-on for accuracy throughout its entire range, from a slow 250 feet per minute for delicate work to a blistering 900 feet per minute for serious stock removal. However, even at a powerful 5.6 amps, the motor is quiet compared to other models we tested.

    Woodworkers of all skill levels will appreciate the self-centering belt, and the quick and easy belt change translates into less prep time and increased production. With one of the better dust-collection bags on the market and a flattop design for benchtop use, this is a great sander for all midweight applications. --Justin Paul ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars No regrets with this sander!!!
    It has been almost a year since I purchased this sander and I must say that it impresses me more every time I use it.It's light, powerful, relatively quiet, with good belt tracking.And as other reviewers have pointed out, the dust collection is outstanding, even when using the supplied dust bag.Most recently, I used this sander to edge new hardwood floors and even went so far as to use it for the initial sanding of almost 200 s.f. of oak flooring, using 50 grit belts. Although I did break down and purchase a 4"x24" Porter Cable (a Makita 4"x24" was not available locally) to complete the remainder of the floor, the Makita performed flawlessly, even under heavy pressure.It simply would not stall, regardless of the pressure applied.Another good feature of this sander is its compact design which allows you to get into tight quarters.I was able to sand completely flush to the right side of the sander and to within approximately two inches of the front.The 4"x24" Porter Cable would get to about 1/4" on the side and 6" in front.I highly recommend this sander!It's one of those rare tools that leaves you wanting nothing more, because it would be almost impossible to improve. Real quality at a fair price. I just wish I could say the same for the 4"x24" Porter Cable.

    Editorial Review

    Circular saws are like pickup trucks--everyone seems to have a stand-alone favorite, a saw that (in the user's experience, anyway) vastly outperforms all others. Well, on a lot of job sites that favorite is the 7-1/4-inch Makita. With its long-lasting 13 amp Makita motor, heavy-duty aluminum foot, and easy-to-read gauges, this saw is tough to find fault with. The bevel adjusts smoothly with a screw-tightened lock, and depth adjustments are equally easy to make. There's also a built-in shaft lock for easy blade changes. As with so many Makita tools, the brushes are easily accessed and replaced. While it's true that with heavy use the depth adjustment can start slipping, retightening the lever lock is fairly easy. The main reason we (along with a lot of other people) like Makita's saw, however, is its remarkably well-balanced design: it's extremely easy to follow a line, and even after a long day of making cuts, this saw still feels good in your hand. --Jon Groebner ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars simply the best
    Ive been a self employed carpenter for thirty years and used every circular on the market. Skil before & after Bosch, B&D, Porter Cable before & after Rockwell,Milwalkee, DeWalt, Miller Falls, and Sears. Nothing has the feel, power and dependability of this Makita. Even the old worm drive skil, which you need a crane after rafters or stair stringers, has met it's match with the 5007. It is heavy enough not to bounce all over the work as light diy saws do, but light enough to still drink a soda one handed at the end of the day. You can rip all day with it, and it never overheats, nor can you bind it into a stall easily. Only complaint I have is I wish it wouldn't hit you in the face with the saw dust. Good saw buy it. Oh! it is made right here in the USA.
    This is a complaint; I dropped mine down a flight of stairs, and bent it. I replaced it. It is now made overseas, and no longer made in Buford Georgia. No wonder so many Americans are out of work.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Makita 5007NBK 7-1/4" Circular Saw
    This is an excellent saw that I have owned and used on the job for many years. It is lightweight and extremely durable with a powerful 13 Amp motor. The handle positions and balance are just right for me, giving a very controlled cut. With the optional rip fence, and a standard carbide tipped master-crosscut blade, I have used it many times when a table saw was unavailable, to rip 16-foot 2X PT into 1-1/4" strips. This is a brutal task for any 7-1/4" circular saw, but this Makita takes the choking strain and heat buildup in stride. I wouldn't recommend trying this continuously with another brand of sidewinder unless you really want to see what it's made of, and can afford to replace it. This saw is also great for cutting 1/2" cement backerboard using a 7-inch dry-cut continuous-rim blade.
    An occasional set of motor brushes and a new power cord are the only repairs made over the years. I'm still amazed that the switch hasn't fried yet considering all of the heavy loading this saw has seen.
    The 5007NBK is a contractors' saw made for continuous, repetitive cutting, so there is no electric brake or safety on the trigger switch. The saw has a blade lock for easy blade changing. Depth adjustment is done with a thumb lever located at the rear of the heavy gauge aluminum foot.
    This saw was considered by many to be "The Builders' Saw" in the eighties and early nineties and was extremely prevalent on jobsites then. It has outlasted other saws I have owned by many years, and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a durable, long lasting tool for heavy on the job use.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Saw - Accurate, powerful, durable, inexpensive
    My brother-in-law does remodeling and as a result, puts his power tools through hell.He's used the same Makita circular saw since the 1980s.It was based on seeing how well his saw still performed that I decided to purchase the Makita.I've never been sorry.I'm not a pro, but I certainly enjoy having a powerful, accurate saw when I need to make home repairs.I haven't found anything I can't slice through with this little monster.I've had it several years and it works like a new tool.The 13-amp motor supplies more than enough power for extended cutting of hard, thick lumber and has the added homeowner's advantage of not causing your 15-amp breakers to trip like some of the larger saws.There's a good reason you see these things all over job sites - they work well and last forever. ...
