Fine Woodworking Magazine (circulation: 200,000) has recommended the Makita LS1016L 10" Dual Slide Compound Miter Saw to their readers. The endorsement appeared in their January-February 2010 issue.
The editor clearly liked the capacity, accuracy, intuitive controls, and compact size of Makita\'s LS1016L. After using the LS1016L to cut a variety of materials, the editor reported high-quality, accurate cuts each time.
Makita\'s LS1016L has the largest crown molding cutting capacity (6-5/8" vertically nested) in its class. It has a patented 4-Steel Rail Sliding System that further increases rigidity to produce superior cuts, and an exclusive 6 linear ball bearings design for smooth, adjustment-free, "dead-on" accurate cuts right out of the box.
The LS1016L is engineered for finish work, remodeling, trim work, and furniture making. It is ideal for a broad range of trades, including finish carpenters, professional woodworkers, case and base installers, cabinet installers, cabinet manufacturers, closet installers, decking and flooring applications, siding installers, stair installers, and general contractors seeking a best-in-class 10" dual slide compound miter saw for the jobsite or the benchtop.
