Makita’s LS0714 Compound Miter Saw

November 9th, 2007 · No Comments

Makita’s 27.6 pound wonder saw ~ so light even your mama can carry it!

I just sampled Makita’s LS0714 Compound miter saw and what a wonderfully precise and extremely portable tool this is. With a precision machined aluminum base, the LS0714 is powerful enough to support workpieces as large as 11-3/4″ and yet portable enough, with a carrying handle right on top, to sit that baby right next to you in your truck.

Makita’s LS0714 has four steel rails that are designed to support the motor head and provide deeper cutting capacity. It delivers 6,000RPM (with a powerful 10amp motor), which is more than most larger compound miter saws. This portable Miter saw is great for finish carpentry, molding, trim work, flooring, baseboard trim, interior remodeling and other woodworking applications. The only downside is that Makita’s 7-1/2″ compound miter saw is not big enough for crown molding applications.

If you install hardwood flooring and/or are a finish carpenter, the LS0714 is one tool you will want to check out.
