Q:Does this fit the LS1216L?
A:No, this accessory is compatible with model LS1016L
Q:I bought the curiously named "Dust Box Set" for the LS 1016L compound sliding mitre saw and have had GREAT EXPERIENCE with a variety of Makita products. I cannot believe I am unable to find instructions for the use of this device and am quite keen to make a connection with my workshop's high end dust collection apparatus which has 4" soft tubing. I can use adaptors to ratchet down to the size of the plastic opening but do not understand the unusual part that is inside the opening.
A:No, this unit does not attach to a dust collection system. It is meant to be used by itself instead of a dust bag.
Q:Is this Makita's way of making up for putting the miniscule 1-1/4" exhaust chute on what otherwise is a great saw? How about an adapter that would allow for a 2-1/2" connection. Barring that, could you post a photo of the dust box attached to the saw?
A:If you have questions or comments about Makita,or if you are looking for Makita replacement parts, please call their customer service line at 800-462-5482 or visit them online at www.makita.com.
Q:I would like to know if the dust box has a portal to which i could attach a 2" dust collection hose. Or, does anyone have an alternate suggestion. I have pulmonary problems so any ideas to reduce dust is welcome. Thanks, West
A:The diameter of the intake opening is 1-5/8".
