Makita Combination Miter Saw/Table Saw Hot

Let me start out by saying this saw is not available in the United States and if it ever does make it to the US, it will probably be many years from now. The Makita LF10000 10-inch saw uses a rather unique design to accomplish its dual purpose abilities. When you first see the saw, it looks like a typical miter saw, but hidden is the saw's ability to completely flip upside down to be used as a table saw. It takes around 60 seconds to change the saw back and forth between modes, so it is probably not going to work for everyone. But as with all dual function tools, there is always a tradeoff. Think about how much extra room you would have in your garage or truck verses having two saws. Video after Read More.

It would seem the Europeans are a lot more interested in combination machines, I wish we could get some more of these types of tools here. I like the other miter saw combo that is available on the other side of the pond. The one that has an small table over the blade (LH1040), I could see myself using that for flooring.

Were you able to watch the video without flash? The new Youtube video player works with all browsers that support html5 and h.264 or WebM codecs.

<br />Not on this site, I use an off brand browser (Epiphany) and I keep it somewhat locked down. I find animated advertisements extremely anoying, and go out of my way to keep my browser from letting webpages have motion or flashing. I did download it off Toolstop as they are kind enough to supply it in both .ogv and .m4v and I do prefer to watch videos offline.
