Topic tags/keywords: resource question miter saw

Has anyone got a lead on where I can find a replacement laser for my miter saw? It’s just a little think, not much bigger around the a pen with a fairly standard plug in for power. If it weighs an ounce I’ll be shocked.

Please let me know if you have a lead.

Irwin makes one that mounts on the arbor of the saw and comes on when the blade spins. I’ve not used it myself and do not know how to calibrate it or if it stays in line, especially between blade changes. I think it’s a little less than $30.00 at one of the box stores. Hope it helps. Make and model would also be helpful for finding parts. Best of luck, BTKS

I third the recommendation of the Irwin laser. My miter saw didn’t come with one so I picked one up on Amazon and it works great. Amazon had them for right around $25 and I had free shipping for a year. They go on super fast and have worked fine for me for the last 4 months or so.
