The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

I have the 12" version. it is the bomb. I get awesome accuracy during bevel and miter operations. I'm a perfectionist and it gives me dead-on accuracy, unlike my previous DeWalt.

I think the twelve inch version is a dual slide meaning it needs less room behind.
I work in a single car garage I have my table saw running rip cuts parallel the length of tha garage and I want to purchase a meter saw for cross cutting so firstly I can avoid turning the saw for cross cuts and second can fix the table saw to the floor and build a permanent out feed table . I have already ordered the Makita 1018l and plan to place it on the long wall beside table saw and hope it won't interfere with ripping. I can find quite easily dimensions of the saw on google images but nothing showing me from rear of slider when fully back to front of base feet not the overall size

give Makita tech support a call. they can give you the dimensions. since you already ordered, guess the point is moot.

On the other hand we have had 3 very nice introductions in the last few days.

I see no problem with someone signing up to ask a question without giving their life story. Steve, try to ignore the grumpy comments. It happens here from time to time, unfortunately.

Steve, no apology necessary, some of our old timers can be a little crude at times, welcome to the forum.

I like that you have an air filtration unit,Steve. :) I got one myself, last year and wonder to this day why I didn't get one more than a decade ago. BTW, is the filter dirty? :)

yeah the air filtration was a wonderful addition i toyed with the idea for a long time wondering if it would make a difference and as you can see whats stuck to the filter in a very short space of time and not all over the tools and floor.
i would highly recommend one of these units to anyone and guarantee you will see a noticeable difference from day one oh and its probably not a bad thing for your lungs

Received saw eventually and can now confirm from rear of sliding rail fully back to front of mounting feet is infact 34" I was hoping 34" was overall the thing looks massive and is going to steal a lot of my ripping space on right hand side of blade . I am dealing with that by adding a mid rail to window and cutting glass height I will try to disguise this on outside as a flower box ( if anyone knows I good flower arranging forums please recommend ) not really. Just joking but I will try to make it look not out of place . Pics to follow
