Shadow light for Makia DLS714

Recommended Posts

For those interested in adding a cutting guide using a LED or laser, i bought a flexible LED USB light (it has the same outline as a toothbrush) and a USB female to male extension cord and a small USB battery pack (on eBay) and then glued the setup to the top of the blade housing under the blade guard and it works perfectly creating a shadow where the blade will run across the wood. Overall cost was less than $25.

I had previously tried a micro laser but mounting it in a good position is really difficult (I had to use Blutac to mount it under the rail housing) and the battery connection is not effective.
