I've had a Makita 10" double angle slider for maybe 5 years or so and it seems to be holding up well. Once I got it set it has stayed right on for accuracy. When I bought it I grabbed every brand of saw and wiggled them to see how much flex they had. This Makita had the least amount of flex and movement. I'm not proclaiming Makita to be the best but I'm real satisfied with the consistent accuracy of this one I bought. Jim

I've got the same Makita and would back up what fixerupper says.

I know Makita has since come out with a 12" version - but haven't tried it out myself.

But going on how good a saw the 10" is - I wouldn't hesitate to go out and buy a 12" one.

Holds its accuracy - good fence system - very little blade deflection - lots of capacity - good ergonomics - even the stock blade is good enough to factor it into the price when comparison shopping (not a throwaway as it is in some others).

For all I know, there may be a better saw out there, but I'm comfortable saying that you'd have no reason to ever regret buying this one.
