12 in Makita Metal Cutting Saw


Makita’s 12-Inch Metal Cutting Saw (model LC1230) delivers power and ease-of-use features for a range of industrial metal-cutting applications. It is ideal for cutting in pipe, angle iron, conduit, and more.

The LC1230 is powered by a Makita-built 15 amp motor that delivers 1,700 rpm for improved performance. The quick release "tool-less" guide plate adjusts from 0 degrees to 45 degrees for quick and easy miter cutting. Cutting capacities range from 4-1/2 inches at 90 degrees to 3-1/2 inches at 45 degrees.

Ease of use features include a quick release vise for secure material retention and fast repeated cut-offs, a socket wrench that stores on the base for convenient blade changes, and a shavings collection tray for easy waste disposal and a cleaner work environment. The LC1230 has a D-shaped handle with a 2-finger trigger and a lock-off button engineered to prevent accidental start-ups. The saw includes a carbide-tipped blade that lasts 50X longer than abrasive wheels and is engineered to cut clean, accurate and virtually burr-free.
