10 in. Compound Miter Saw - LS1040
Unless I missed it, when cutting compound angles there is no guage that tells the exact angle.

Mine Is 20 years old
I have had mine for 20 years and they still make the same model, That's a good sign. Buying a replacement because the slide portion of the saw is worn out. Rebuilt the slide 3 months ago, parts were cheap enough. Electric brake is worn out. Everything else still works. Will put it in the shop for square cuts until it dies. Love this lightweight saw in the field

Good saw
good dependable saw. Accurate, light and durable. This is my second saw in this Makita line. My first went strong with almost daily use for a number of years. It won't do tall base, wide crown or casing but every thing else it does a great job. The one thing this saw could use is a blade better than the entry level blade provided

Product Arrived Timely & Looks New
In my opinion, a great all around saw that I have been using for baseboard molding, solid hardwood flooring and other general uses. The saw is reliable, precise, and looks brand new. I have used it at home and at job sites.
