    THIS ls1220 must be an older saw i did not fined it on there web sight.

    my boss usually will replace the tool if the cost is more then 1/2 the replacement cost . but if the tool is still in good shape and is worth it he will repair it.

    i like to use this as an excuse to my wife to get a new one and then i will up grade the tool

      Makita charges a premium for their parts. AS a result, I have a number of their models that's collecting dust. I get it that the'd rather sell you another tool. Someday, I guess these will be wall ornaments.
