    My Makita 2705 likes the A10

    Just had the first day in the garage to use my table saw and the new A10. Worked perfectly. In fact the nicely slow start-up was great. Like a completely different saw and a perfect match with the saw's turn-off brake.

    Great Stuff

    Hey guys just want to say thank you, this is perfect. Exactly what I was looking for. Simple convenient and just all around awesome!

    great little device!

    It works perfectly and the saw feels much safer to work with. You will not be disappointed!!

    Use on Miter saw

    I bought the 1 X 10A for use on my miter saw. Seems to create soft start on first start, but has limited, if any, effect on further starts. Kinda disappointed with the unit. What am I doing wrong? The saw is a DeWalt 15 amp 10" single bevel. This unit is a replacement for the recalled model.

    Pleased with this product.

    Works as intended. Having soft start on miter saw is nice.
