Makita's SP6000J1 6-1/2'' Plunge Cut Circular Saw slides along the included 55'' Guide Rail to produce straight, accurate cuts with minimal tear-out. The saw's powerful 12-amp motor powers through stock up to 2-3/16'' thick at 90°. It has soft start for smooth start-ups, plus electronic speed control to maintain constant speed under load. The SP6000J1 is a portable alternative to a table saw—ideal for use on the jobsite or in workshops where space is tight. Magnesium components reduce weight to enhance portability. The blade bevels from -1° to 48° with positive stops at 22.5° and 45°. Whether cutting straight or beveled, the blade enters the material on the same cutting line, which makes aligning the track easy and keeps splinters to a minimum. The saw can also cut as close as 11/16'' away from a wall—ideal for trimming flooring. The built-in depth stop allows a preliminary cut of 1/16'' to be performed before the through-cut for splinter-free results. The variable speed dial (2,000-5,200 RPM) allows the user to set the speed for optimum performance in a variety of materials. The built-in torque limiter helps prevent motor burnout, while the electric brake makes sequential cuts faster. A lock-lever attaches the saw to the rail system so the saw stays on the anodized aluminum rail when positioned for a bevel cut. The smooth and convenient plunge release lever is designed for comfort, and the depth adjustment with large scale is easy to set.
