Frequently Bought Together


The Makita 12 in. Dual-Bevel Sliding Compound Miter Saw with Laser (model LS1219L) combines capacity, accuracy and efficient dust extraction in a more compact size, with a unique 2-Steel Rail Sliding System that offers a reduced footprint for operation flush against a wall. The innovative direct-drive gearbox and guard system is engineered for increased vertical cutting capacity of baseboard (6-3/4 in.) and crown molding (8 in. nested). It will also make 15 in. crosscuts at 90 degrees. The saw miters 0 to 60 degrees left and right, with positive stops at 0, 15, 22.5, 31.6, 45 and 60 degrees (left or right). The bevel lock is located in the front of the saw for easy access and quick adjustments from 0 to 48 degrees (left and right).
The saw is powered by a 15 AMP direct drive motor with soft start, a key point of difference. Direct drive enables smoother start-ups and consistent, constant power with no belts to slip or replace. The electric brake provides added convenience. In addition, the electronic speed control maintains constant speed under load for smoother, higher-quality cutting.
Additional features include a high-quality 60T carbide-tipped blade, and a see-through blade guard system for greater visibility of the blade and line-of-cut. The built-in laser indicates the line-of-cut whether the blade is turning or not, and offers micro-adjustments for precise “left-of-blade” or “right-of-blade” cutting. It has dual dust collection ports for improved dust collection capability for use with a bag (included) or vacuum (sold separately). It also has a large-sized aluminum base that improves the stability of cutting stock for more efficient cutting.
  • Unique 2-Steel Rail Sliding System design offers single slide-glide operation; reduced saw footprint allows operation flush against a wall
  • Increased capacity for up to 8 in. crown molding (vertically nested), 6-3/4 in. baseboard (vertical), and 15 in. crosscuts at 90 degrees
  • In-front bevel lock for convenient operation
  • Dual dust collection ports provide excellent dust extraction performance
  • Innovative direct drive motor and guard system is engineered for increased vertical cutting capacity (6-3/4 in.)
  • Linear ball bearing system engineered to deliver "dead-on" accurate cuts
  • Less weight (65 lbs.) and the most compact design in its class for easy jobsite portability
  • Powerful 15.0 AMP direct drive motor requires less maintenance and delivers 3,200 RPM
  • Large-sized aluminum base improves stability of material for efficient cutting
  • Soft start suppresses start-up reaction for smooth start-ups and longer gear life

Accurate saw but horrible boxing.
Saw is really great, powerful and very accurate. Not perfect out of the box but very easy to get dialed in. This saw replaced a Makita LS1216L which I could never get a square cut from, 2 sets of sliding rails probably the cause. The tall fences are easy to remove and put back on, loosen a thumb screw and pull straight up. No more sliding them off. The bevel adjustment knob is up front so you do not have to reach around the back of the saw. Nice large miter table to work with and the laser actually works fairly good. It projects an almost clear line on the left part of the kerf. My biggest complaint is not with the saw itself but the way Makita packaged it. Its' just placed inside of a large box with a few cardboard baffles that do a terrible job holding anything in place. Ordered 3 times because the saws were breaking through the boxes on all sides. Parts were missing (probably fell out of the holes) and saws were damaged. I was finally able to get a decent saw with little damage but had to get the missing items from the other saws. CPO was great in handling the returns but is it asking Makita too much to possibly rethink how a 65lbs saw is packed? Molded styrofoam blocks would be the way to go. Overall the saw is dead accurate and easy to operate, would highly recommend.

Good saw but takes a lot of work to get it going.
Took two shipments before I got a good unit. The saw still took quite a bit of tuning but seems to work well. The rails were a little off but there are ways to fix them. Nice tool but needs refinement and better QC.

Don’t know if I like it or not
Ordered the saw from Tyler Tool. It was delivered to me in a destroyed box with broken pieces of the saw falling out. Had to spend $36 to have a box built to ship it back and still haven’t received the replacement. Very unhappy that I received a damaged product and had to pay so much to return it.
