Does anyone know if Makita has addressed the blade tracking issue? There is a local supplier who has these on sale for $449 ($100 off) and I am looking at this saw as a possible addition to my shop. Thanks, Duane

Nothing that I've read about yet.  Seems like it's in the hands of the end user for now.  Where is this local source?  I've been keeping an eye out for a friend in the market for a SCMS and haven't seen a price that good yet.

Has anyone seen a zero clearance insert available for this saw? If not, I guess I need to make a template.

I bought this saw recently. The table was flat and the fence was square. However, like most others, the bars that the saw head travels along are not parallel. I discovered this when I had a cut mark on a board and was lining the mark up with the laser line. As I pulled the saw head back towards me, I noticed that the laser line would move laterally relative to my pencil mark. The final cut was not square. I decided to just return the saw instead of trying to align the bars.

Hope this helps.

RKA, Sorry for the late response. The local supplier is Jerry's Home Improvement in Eugene, Oregon. I think the price is good until 8PM pacific time today, but may be worth a call to their tool department @ (541) 689-1911.
