With positive stops at 0, 15, 22.5, 31.6 and 45 which make mitre and repeat settings simple and quick. Four steel bars with 6 linear ball bearings are used for smooth and precise sliding action.

Makita 240v Makita SawThe rigid, cast alloy base and twin parallel slides give a high level of accuracy with the blade at any angle. Saws with slides above each other as opposed to side by side as on the LS0815FL, prove to be inaccurate as the drive head has a tendency to tilt the slides into a curved track. Twin material support bars have fitted on either side of the base plate which also has a left side sub fence with a fixed fence on the right side. The stock clamping post can be fitted to either side. A soft-grip handle is provided for ease of transportation. Weighing in at 14.2kg, it's relatively easy to move around the workshop or site. A sliding sub-fence is fitted on the left-hand side as well as work supports on each side. The dual rear handle bevel lock is easily accessible and adjusts 0 to 48 degrees left and 0 to 5 degrees right with positive stops at 0 and 45 degrees left. The linear ball bearing system delivers 'dead on' accurate cuts. The blade guard is see-through for visibility of the line of cut, with built-in LED light to illuminate the line of cut for increased accuracy. Built-in laser guide.
