I learn something new here every week. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks Bob nice to be here. Re: tool geek, I'm really only a wannabe tool geek...I know enough to know I don't know nearly as much stuff as I'd like to learn. AKA noob + a little research. Glad I fooled you though, thanks lol

'PaliBob' I have had to remove the fencing for beveled cuts, but that is pretty standard for miter saws. I mean what other saw can cut a 60 degree angle with a 45 degree bevel???!!
And as far as the dust, i have not heard of any dust box yet, although I have seen it on previous models...

Overall, I am very happy with my new LS1016L!

Makita new miter saw two rail system flawed?

Purchased Makita last week to replace an old Dewalt - had same problem with upper rails/tubes - bottom tubes move smoothly but uppers seemed to bind and was hard to push. Saw on display at Home Depot didn't have the problem so I returned mine as defective and got another. On new one top tubes move as smoothly as bottom. Suggest returning as defective.

I've already returned it and replaced it with a bosch 4410.

I suspect after some break-in time the issue would go away, but I still think the two sets of rails is a bad design.
