As a Hardwood Flooring contractor, I bought this 8" Makita table saw with plastic base, no metal legs in 1989, and still ripping! after using my bosses for over 10 years.

As a Hardwood Flooring contractor, I bought this 8" Makita table saw with plastic base, no metal legs in 1989, and still ripping! after using my bosses for over 10 years. Table saws are very dangerous tools. Always respect them, and think about your fingers before you turn it on. Prayer never hurts and may help focus the few brain cells we have left. . . . It's very important to have a sharp blade on your saw, primarily for safety, don't mess about with a dull blade, kick backs are far more likely and of course don't force the tool (aka feeding to fast). I've seen kick backs from 3/4" oak go right through a hollow core door. Don't try to rip wet lumber, it will bind and hurt you or something else. . . . Always stand to the side, not behind the blade and wear glasses and hearing protection (What?). I bent/lost the angle indicator and a "helper" ran a skill saw across tho top inch+" of the fence but it still works well. I've replaced the brushes (under $10, in stock at good tool service type place) and lube the bottom (accessible) bearing, I could splurge and replace them, but it's likely more time and money than it's worth at this point and lubing them seems to really help, Thankfully it is not sealed, and it cuts much better with new brushes and lubed bearings (I actually only did the one that's accessible easily, sprayed the other one). There is allot of resistance cranking it up and down with the small knob, so much that a bigger knob with a small handle would have likely broken. I've attempted to adjust the tension numerous times (easy to do with varied results) to some effect, as well as lubricate it as well. I've had to replace the original power cord with a heavy duty bright Yellow (12 gauge) extension cord (easier and cheaper than a factory part) as well as longer, eliminating the need for an extension cord 3/4 of the time. The plastic base has broken, chipped and cracked to the point that i built a reinforcing frame for the bottom, which helps with stabilizing it as well as adding a bit of weight (ripped 2X4s). I don't think the factory legs are worth the time or money IMHO. Like all Makita (in my experience) tools it's loader than heck but it only bogs down with 3"+ miters on white oak making really thick custom thresholds, but otherwise it does just fine, especially ripping 5/16ths" and even 3/4" White oak quite well, if the blade is reasonably sharp. I'm starting to think the blade spray lube from Bostic is a good investment. It has paid for itself likely a hundred times over. a good tool, likely a safe investment even used. Considering this is a circular saw on a fairly well engineered frame on a cheap base, it has exactly the power one would expect, or perhaps a bit more again, sharp blades make the difference. I've had to learn to include blade cost and time into every third large job if i want to keep a sharp blade on it. Often it's faster/easier to just buy blades than ship them to the quite good, online blade sharpening outfits that guarantee their work. Ya just gotta have 10 blades in stock so you can rotate and make shipping them worth while, It's often good to buy two of the same tool so the blades/parts fit and on occasion I've even used a small miter saw blade on my table saw just because it was sharp and i didn't want to go buy a blade in the middle of the day, or i was feeling cheap, whatever, be careful!

Lots of Power, well built
I had a 12 year old full sized Rigid that was seldom used, yet the 10 amp motor still burned up, very disappointing! This Makita is GREAT compared to the Rigid. Plenty of excess power (first job was ripping 2x4 on 38 deg angle, and it chewed through it no problem), light saw, but sturdy, very solid and well built. Other reviewers complained about the fence? I think the fence is great and it cut...

I had a 12 year old full sized Rigid that was seldom used, yet the 10 amp motor still burned up, very disappointing! This Makita is GREAT compared to the Rigid. Plenty of excess power (first job was ripping 2x4 on 38 deg angle, and it chewed through it no problem), light saw, but sturdy, very solid and well built. Other reviewers complained about the fence? I think the fence is great and it cut true out of the box (I did have to adjust the angle indicator on the blade though). I have had a really good track record with Makita motors, I down right abuse some of my older Makita saws, and they just keep running, so I'm sold on the Makita motor, as opposed to the Dewalt, Rigid, etc., that I just don't think are the highest quality and I seem to hear about them burning up more often. Bottom line, it was worth the extra $ for me to get the Makita.

Worth every penny
Easy to assemble. Cuts true and much better than my old table saw. The table is the right size and the extension is simple to use. The rip fence is solid and simply to use. You won't be disappointed with this saw

Capable but HEAVY!
All the bells and whistles, but wish it was a little smaller/lighter.
