ts1342. I googled 'mitre saw laser guide', looked at the Irwin blade
mounted laser (unwise) and saw yours. It was a no-brainer.

have wanted a laser guide on my mitersaw ever since I saw one on
the New Yankee workshop. I p[layed with the type that bolted on
the blade and it was not right. Laserkerf has been on my saw more
than a year and I get totally tight and precise cuts that are set
up with the saw turned off. In addition, when I had a problem, the
folks at Laserkerf jumped right in and solved it way beyond their
expected responsibility. I cannot recommend their product more highly.
the Laserkerf. Nice ! A product that's simple, affordable and
actually works. What a concept.

You are the best! That looks awfully good to me. I do believe you've
sealed the deal for me and my two "new found loves" (a saw
with digital angle/bevel readouts AND the best laser in the business)!
Thanks no end for going above and beyond the call, and so very quickly
at that. I really appreciate it.
have an old Craftsman RAS, circa 1994, and the installation took me
about a half hr. following the instructions. I had forgot to order
the mounting bracket, and an email to them got me that in less than
a week. It is fantastic! It makes my old RAS pretend to be brand new.
I haven't tried angles as yet, but that seems straight forward. I
installed the switch toward the front of the saw by drilling a hole
in the cover, and mounting it under the cowling. It does work perfectly.

Bought one, liked it so much I bought one for a second saw
just want to let you know how pleased I am with my Laserkerf. I've
been using mine on a Ridgid MS1290 for about a year now. And it has
saved me a tremendous amount of time in measuring, marking, and cutting.
Since I can see the cut mark from the laserkerf on my tape measure,
I'm able to alleviate the step of marking my workpiece, situating
it, and cutting. Now I just measure and cut.
I can't count the number of times the Laserkerf has saved me time.
Due to the Laserkerf, all my jobs are done more quickly.
lost several fingertips to a saw years ago, the safety advantages
of this product make it superior to others. The cut can be precisely
adjusted to the laser before the blade is started, which is especially
effective for the larger, heavier pieces of lumber. Great design,
installs and adjusts very easily. Chris
installed my laserkerf with help from the photos on the website. Luckily
my Delta Compound Miter (36-220) was one of the examples. Very simple
to install once I knew where to place it. I have been wanting a laser
guide ever since I first saw one used by Norm Abrams on "The
New Yankee Workshop". Thanks for a great, affordable and accurate
|Received the package
in last night’s mail. Installed it last night at about 9:30
– took me 15 minutes to install and adjust. Let everything stand
overnight to let the adhesive set up. Tried a couple of cuts this
morning – the cut had drifted one full kerf from what I set
last night. Readjusted the unit (about 1 minute of time) and everything
is cutting right on.This is much nicer that the laser setup on the
Delta saw that I own. Bruce
|Just a note to say that the unit I just
purchased is considerably higher in quality than I was expecting.
Much brighter and with longer range than I thought it would be.
It was easy to install and works just great. Bill
|Just to let you know I have had my new
Laserkerf installed for a few weeks now and have been using it. This
works so nice. My old miter saw had the type of laser that was bolted
onto one side of the blade and the position of the laser changed as
you made the cut. You never could see where you were going to cut
until the saw came up to speed. Not a very safe operation. Never really
like that one and I had a lot of bad cuts with it. Your new Laserkerf
gives a perfect alignment for a confident cut every time. Works just
like your guys said it would. What a great product worth every penny.
Thank you, Rick
|The Laserkerf is installed,
no problem. Took a couple of trial cuts and it's dead on. The only
thing I would have liked to see was about 6 more inches of wire on
the switch so I could mount it closer to the saw switch. As it is
I mounted the switch on top of the dust chute casting to the left
of the saw guard and the battery pack on the casting below and to
the left of the dust bag, next to the chart for molding angles. This
gives easy access to both. This little add-on makes the Makita LS1013
the Rolls-Royce of mitre saws and I'm sure I'll be pleased with the
upgrade...Thanks for your patience with my impatience....Take care.
|Just received my Laser for
my DeWalt Mitre Saw. Very easy to install, and exceeded my expectations.
Thank you very much for such an invaluable tool. It does out "shine"
the lasers that come standard with a few mitre saws I looked at. Didn't
like the idea of blade mounted and only on when the saw was running.
This is a much better unit. M.W.
|Installed the laser on my dewalt 708
saw and it works as advertised, even outside in the sun. I did run
into the local dewalt representative at my neighborhood home depot
and asked him about the availability of retrofit laser guides for
their saws. He said that dewalt did not foresee utilizing the technology
due to stability and vibration problems. I told him I just installed
a laserkerf and was very satisfied with the performance and the accuracy.
M.R. from GA
|I'm very pleased. The product works
exactly as you advertised it would

|I really like the Laserkerf. /T.S. from IN
|Since I've started using the Laserkerf on my chop
saw I know that every cut
is going to be accurate. No more "nibbling" at the work
piece to get the
dimension I want. On the mark every time. /J.P. from KY
|Quality product, quickly delivered; couldn't ask
for anything else!/T.L. from VA
| Nice product and super fast delivery./C.B. from
|Smooth transaction; prompt communication/delivery;
good product. /T.A. from
|Fast, efficient and a great deal. Thanks!/
M.Z. from MD
|Very good product, fast service and very
helpful, Would buy from again / D.P. from OH
|Fast service! It arrived in the mail today. Took
me about 15 minutes to install and make very minor adjustments. Tried
a couple cuts and it is right on the mark. Very well made unit.
Do have one suggestion, the switch needs to be about 3 inches further
from the laser. I mounted mine on a DW705 on top of the carry handle.
That's as close as the cord would allow. I think it would be handier
mounted on front of the motor. Also I'm thinking about changing my
switch to a push button or toggle.
Just my 2 cents. All in all I am very happy with the unit and will
recommend it to my friends and others.
/A.M. from WA
Received your product and I have installed it
on my 12" Makita slider. I 've only done a few test cuts, but
so far it works very well. Adjustment was a bit time consuming and
there is a learning curve as far as how you line up your marks to
the laser line, however once I got the hang of it, I could split
a pencil line in half.
My only criticism is that because of the position of the laser unit,
you can't see the laser line when cutting crown molding.
(SEE QUESTIONS FOR A RESPONSE) Other than that, the Laserkerf
looks like it will be a great addition to an already great tool./

|I just wanted to get back to you and let you know
what a great product I know the laserkerf is. I installed it when
it arrived but over the last two weeks have had the opportunity to
use it extensively. It made my decking project with many different
angles a breeze to cut. What a time saver and made my first cuts accurate.
Thank you for making this product available./MK from NY
|I wanted to thank you for the prompt delivery of
my Laserkerf product, it arrived the next day. I had a chance to install
it on my miter saw this past weekend, and it was great! I made my
miter cuts much more quickly and accurately than by hand. Thank you
again for a terrific product. /RF from KY
|OK---that answers the mystery. Obviously as the beam
stretches out from under the shadow of radial arm saw motor it is
being affected by the bright fluorescent lighting in the shop and
breaks up a bit. Not a problem, I really love the tool !!! I can actually
split a pencil mark on a piece of wood stock by simply lining it up
with the edge of the beam. It only takes a second to line things up
and get that kind of accuracy with the LaserKerf. Very nice product.
By the way, my Dad likes the LaserKerf I bought him as much as I do.
Thanks for the quick reply.
|This thing is great. Set up was as simple as could
be and is dead accurate. Great product for a great price, shipping
time was out of this world. I am sure I will be enjoying my laserkerf
for many years to come. Can't wait to show my brother this weekend
(he'll be ordering one to I bet). WR from NC
|I'm doing a job that requires 13" cuts on my
Rigid 1260. The only problem I have is that the beam is slightly out
of focus after about 8". It is still straight, but a little dim
and fuzzy. I'm beginning to trust it on narrower pieces however, and
I really like the fact that I don't need the saw running for setup.
I need both hands for work piece/table alignment! The installation
is a snap on the Rigid 1260. In fact, Rigid would be wise to incorporate
this device on this model. JS from NC
|A Laserkerf was purchased for my miter saw. It worked
well that a second was purchased for my radial arm saw.
An outstanding product. Works just as described and much
better than the blade mounted laser. DP from MI
|Just a quick follow up to let you know how the laserkerf
is working in our shop.
I work with young adults with developmental disabilities who on
many occasions have problems with fine motor skill.
This problem with fine motor skills as you can probably imagine
led to many minutes of frustration trying to manipulate the saw
and support their work while lining it up for a cut, which, when
all was said and done was frequently inaccurate and overall an intimidating
With the laserkerf, they are able to achieve success within literally
seconds. And it is overall safer for them as well as now they can
line up their wood with the laser guide then clamp it, and place
one hand in their pocket while the other engages the saw. They fell
extremely empowered and more importantly successful!
It is with devices such as this that is making our woodworking
shop a success!!!! Thank you. D.K. Canada
|Received my laserkerf attachment and put it to immediate
use. It has diminished my set-up time and increased my accuracy. It
has also made my old reliable radial-arm saw an even more valuable
tool in my workshop. Many thanks for this great innovation. W.L. from
