        Comments about 12 in. Metal Cutting Saw:

        This is a great saw, it will perform as advertised. I've been cutting various sizes of angle iron in my garage, and the cuts are straight and true. The box arrived on time and in good shape. The saw was pacakaged adequately. I tightented the saw blade by about a 1/4 to 1/3 turn, and trued up the angle indicator (with a square and phillips screwdriver), it was off slightly. All has been flawless since. I do use a stick lubricant on the blade, just because.

            Using saw to make a metal railing, square cuts unlike a fiber cut off saw, great time saver.

                Warranty

                Warranty Information

                Makita Standard Warranty

                The Makita Standard Warranty applies to both new and factory-reconditioned Makita tools. Every Makita tool is thoroughly inspected and tested before leaving the factory. If you are not satisfied with any Makita tool within 30 days of purchase, return it and Makita will provide a replacement or refund. Each Makita tool is warranted to be free of defects from workmanship and materials for the period of ONE YEAR from the date of original purchase. Should any trouble develop during this one-year period, return the COMPLETE tool, freight prepaid, to one of Makita's Factory or Authorized Service Centers.

                If inspection shows the trouble is caused by defective workmanship or material, Makita will repair (or at its option, replace without charge).

                This Warranty does not apply where:
                • Repairs have been made or attempted by others
                • Repairs are required because of normal wear and tear
                • The tool has been abused, misused or improperly maintained
                • Alterations have been made to the tool
                In no event shall Makita be liable for any indirect, incidental or consequential damages from the sale or use of the product. This disclaimer applies to both during and after the term of this warranty. Makita disclaims liability for any implied warranties, including implied warranties of "merchantability" and "fitness" for a specific purpose, after the one-year term of this warranty. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.
