Comments about 12 in. Compound Miter Saw:

Light and easy to transport. Cuts wide crown with ease. Complaint, cast aluminium table dented and marred by heavy steel outrigger supports that were not secured in factory box.

    Comments about Factory Reconditioned Makita LS1221-R 12-in Compound Miter Saw:

    I picked up this saw because I needed to upgrade to 12" and it was such a good price. Great saw, great blade, Very quiet! Cant even tell it's a re-furb...

    The only thing I had to get used to was when you hit the power button the saw tends to jump upward slightly.
    My old saw had just one button and did not have a safty button.

    Great saw! Now if I could only find such a deal on a table saw....

        A friend has the same model saw. He is rough on equipment so I knew the saw was dependable. So far, I am very satisfied with my purchase and it was a great price and even better with the rebate I received.

          the only thing that is wrong is the turn sticks a little on the right side at 31.5 angle. The table is well lubed and it seem to rub may have to return.

          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.
