Product Description

Size: Radial Arm Saws

Product Description

Our new 2nd generation laser guide is the easiest and best way to turn your saw into a precision cutting machine. Installation is fast and easy, simply replace the outer blade flange with the laser unit. There are no confusing parts or adjustments. The laser guide provides a brighter, more accurate line on the left of the saw blade kerf and improves safety by showing you where the blade will cut. The centrifugal switch activates the laser automatically. Notes: If your saw has a 5/8-Inch threaded arbor shaft and uses a nut to secure the blade, this laser guide should fit. Will not fit some 12-Inch saws that have interlocking arbor flanges, including Rigid and ProTech.

Installation was easy and the laser line is indeed very bright.
M. Medow
Maybe it's just defective but being I've had it for 3 months a return is a little late.
Laurence A Nadeau
The unit comes with 3 additional batteries and they worked fine.

The summary: This is a great add-on for your miter saw!

The review:
After reading all of the reviews on different laser guides, I was a bit concerned about the accuracy of any of these devices. (A lot of reviews have complained about 1/8-1/4" inaccuracy. True, these are for different models, but I assume all models are all about the same.) But for [...] bucks, I figured it was worth the experiment. Also, I read on a few reviews that these things can be adjusted, so I figured I could always do that.

The guide arrived and I installed it, I was pleased to find that the laser line was *exactly* where the blade cut. This thing is spot on...no need for adjustment! It was easy to install, and fit my off-brand saw with no problems.

I only have two small issues (things of note, really):

1. In bright sunlight, it can be a bit hard to see the line. It is still adequately visible, but not a huge bring line like some reviews might sugget. I assume that all lasers will be about the same in this regard, however. I don't think that Oshlun's guide will be any dimmer than their competitors. Luckily, I live in Seattle where the majority of days are at least a little grey. In that weather this laser guide shines bright! (Also, it is possible that the batteries that shipped with the unit started to weaken in the package. Perhaps if I changed them with the extra set that came with the unit I would find the line brighter.)

2. One needs to activate the saw blade to see the line. Again, it is hard to fault Oshlun for this.....all add-on laser guides act in this manner. It would be very dangerous for them to put a switch on the unit, as that would mean that people were always reaching their hand near the blade to turn it on.

Size Name: Miter & Portable Saws Verified Purchase
Works great....clear, crisp line right where the blade cuts.

In addition to the LG-M01 (for the mitre saw), I also bought the LG-R01 (for the radial arm saw). On my Makita LS-1013 10" sliding compound mitre saw, I replaced the inner arbor washer with the R01 and replaced the outer arbor washer with the M01. In order to clear the blade guard, I used one of the arbor bolts which came with the product as it had a slightly thinner head. I also needed to add a small washer between the blade guard and the blade housing to account for the extra thickness of the R01 (when compared with the old inner washer).

Now I have a crisp double laser line which allows me to make cuts easily on either side of the blade....very handy. Always check with your saw manufacturer for safety guidance.

Size Name: Miter & Portable Saws Verified Purchase
I just picked up the Bosch 12 Sliding Miter saw (model 5312) and it didn't come with a laser. Outside of the Bosch brand laser which is expensive and gets poor reviews most lasers say they do not work for Bosch for some reason. I called Oshlun and they said that the Oshlun LG-M01 will work fine and boy did it. It took only a couple minutes to install and boy is it spot on. I'm not a finish carpenter or anything like that, but I marked the wood, set the laser on it and it hit dead on the mark every time. Nice and bright! I have not tried it outside but I love it and am thrilled it works great on my bosch 5312. Thanks Oshlun for a great product.

A great addition to my saw. Simple to install and use. Comes with extra batteries and mounting screws. The Bosch Glide stock arbor screw works fine. I'll be ordering another for my circular saw. Recommended.

Size Name: Miter & Portable Saws Verified Purchase
I bought two of these to add to a Ryobi TS1343L 10 Inch Miter Saw, so that I can have a laser guide line on both sides of the blade. There is a company who sells dual laser guides, but they do not list this saw as compatible, and I read reviews for the Oshlun brand in which an Oshlun company representative is quoted as saying theirs are brighter than other brands. Since the one Ryobi uses is all but invisible in bright daylight, I was hoping to improve the situation.

The first thing I did was remove the saw blade, and mount one of these Oshluns next to the OEM Ryobi laser guide, and run the saw. The lines are identically bright. I do not see any more brightness from the Oshlun at all.

There is one thing the Oshlun LG-M01 has going for it that the Ryobi laser guide cannot do. The Oshlun model will work no matter which way you mount it on the arbor. The Ryobi model that came on the saw MUST be mounted with the label side out, or the laser doesn't come on when it spins. Because I wanted to use dual guides, I need to have one replace the inner blade washer, and so must be mounted in reverse to keep the laser close to the inside of the blade.

Note the round hole on the face of the Oshlun in the picture shown in this review. Ryobi uses a "D" shaped hole all the way through the guide. The back side of the Oshlun has a similar modified hole which is about 7/16" by 1/2" rectangle with rounded corners, to allow it to slide onto the flats on a typical 5/8" arbor shaft. It is their intention this guide be mounted right under the head of the blade bolt, so the smaller round hole on the face of the device works fine if used singly as intended.
