How does one replace the pin in a sliding compound miter saw? The locking pin on my saw has broken, I have a replacement pin, but I can not figure out how to replace it. Can you help?
I"ve never had to replace one, but here's an exploded parts diagram that shows it has an o-ring on it. I'm guessing its a friction fit and maybe you can just knock it out with a punch or drift, or maybe twist it out with a pair of vise grips...but I don't have the saw in front of me, and can't remember if the back side of the pin is accessible.
Anyway, FWIW, see here.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
