Hey, my drop saw wont lock off the sliding arm when i pack it up an put it in the ute. i turn the handle full tighten an still slides freely?


There is a tube underneath and a lock mechanism. what might have happened is the lock has spread open and not putting enough pressure on the slide. Unplug the tool and turn it over and you will see the tube and lock. The lock is held in place by a phillips head screw and if the end is spread you can "GENTLY" squeeze it shut, reassemble and I think this will take care of your problem, also look for excessive wear on the lock and if so turn it 180degrees and try it that way. Let me know if you need more help.

You have to turn the handle, it works like a bolt, you cant see it but it is tied in, you have to unscrew it before trying to move it

When I turn the table I am getting metal on metal grinding and is tough to turn .... how do i adjust table? dual compound makita ls1016l miter saw


You don't adjust the table, you need to remove the table from the base and clean the surface, when you take it apart you will see what I am talking about. To do this first unplug the tool and remove the fence and kerf boards, under the kerf boards you will find a 13MM hex bolt just like on the fence, remove the bolt and lift the table off the base, clean the wear plates and lube them with a light coat of grease, on the outside rails you will see what is causing your problem, clean with a surface conditioner or fine sandpaper, lube this area also.. Make sure you do all the sides for a smooth turn, reassemble the table to the base in reverse order and install the bolt, I usually tighten all the way snug and then loosen till you can turn the table freely making sure not to loosen too much or the table will rock. Reassemble the fence squaring it to the blade and replace the kerf boards. It sounds complicated but really it is not. This is the only way you can get that metal to metal rough turning repaired. Let me know if you need more assistance

Bosch sliding miter saw, the bearings in the slide mechanism are catching making a jerky slide, have tried wd40 any ideas?


Have you tried blowing out the mechanism with a compressed air nozzle? Frequently this friction is caused not by the bearing itself but instead by debris, sawdust, etc. built up inside the base of the saw. I'd give it a good cleaning to begin with. If that doesn't work, try applying bearing lubricant directly to the bearing races.Use an extension straw if needed so you can get to them, as this is designed to penetrate where even the reliable old wd40 may not reach. You can find this a specialty woodworking stores, as well as some well-equiped home centers. Let us know if this works, or you've already solved the problem...

Makita LS1013 Sliding Compound Mitre saw will not lock at chosen positions/angles on the turnplate other than the standard stop points. Turning the handle will not lock the turnplate anymore it used to it just moves freely now until it hits the nearest stop point. Does anyone know how to fix this ? Machine is 3 years old.


My saw had this exact same problem, here's how i fixed mine. okay so here's a schematic of the saw http://www.toolpartspro.com/image/LS...-Makita-PB.pdf whether you have the exact same issue as my saw, in order to further investigate you need to get to the mechanism that locks the saw. To do this you need to take the turn base (140) off the foot base (156) . its really not too hard, just a little awkward setting the saw in different positions to remove the various parts. Specifically on mine I had issues with the threaded rod (118) not screwing into the stopper holder (135). You'll see this part when you flip the saw upside down. So to remove the turn base(140) from the foot base (156).... Remove the kerf board (108) and under you will see a big bolt, go ahead and remove this. Then there are 4 more bolts which take off the guide rule (117), this what your piece of wood is put against when making the cut. Once these 5 bolts are out, the turn base can now be separated from the feet. Now you'll have a better view of the mechanics and see what is or isn't happening when you screw the handle to lock the miter position. Part 136 (turn stopper) is what actually wedges to a pocket in the foot base which makes the saw lock. when you screw in the handle it actuates this part. make sure that is happening. I had to take out the threaded rod (118) and tighten it on a vice and work the stopper holder (135) deeper onto the threaded rod. use WD 40 to help it a long. You'll need to take off some other various parts to to get the rod out. this will be obvious once you have everything turned over. Now that everything is apart you can blast it with some WD40 or what you think is best here. I used lithium grease. You'll see its especially important to lube up the pivot post that the 2 bases center on, (where the big bolt under the kerf board goes). also the slide plates (153) may be rusty, they'll fall out when you separate the 2 base plates. clean those up and spray them and anything else which will help with smooth movement. the only important item to check once everything is put back together is the guide rule. this can be adjusted slightly in or out of square. Get a nice framing square and make sure your locked in at 90 (or actually 0 degrees on the saw) Sliding the saw the full distance of the cut on the square is ideal and maybe this was a good time to recalibrate that movement anyway. hope this works. Ben.

Turning the handle will not lock the turnplate anymore, it used to, it just moves freely now until it hits the nearest stop point. Does anyone know how to fix this ? Machine is 3 years old.


There is a stop underneath the base that should put pressure on the table to lock into any position. I would unplug tool and turn over gently and look at the condition of the threaded rod which pushes the stop and the bracket that holds it. The stop itself could be worn or the rod might not be putting enough pressure on it. Also look at the cam for the slide to make sure the tube is not stuck inside it from applying too much pressure on it. You can remove it and "squeeze shut some and then I would reverse it" If the black knob has come loose and the hex nut has backed off the rod might not be long enough to hold the stop. You can go to Makitatools.com and download a breakdown to see what I am talking about. Let me know if you need more help.

My saw wont bevel cut easily...It will go to one side just fine....but the other side sticks and its really hard to move...I tried using some wd 40 and it helped a little but its still hard to do.


OK you are on the right track, I would remove the handle assembly on the back and push the travel as far back as possible to look at the bolt for stripped threads. then what I would do is use some dry lubricant and spray the washer and the housing and let dry, after drying reassembly tightening the nut enough to hold in place and reposition the handle. then try again, it could also be messes up in the circular area but for that I would recommend taking to a repair center.
