Question about Bosch 12" Dual - Bevel Compound Miter Saw with Upfront Controls and Laser Tracking 4212L

1 Answer

Craftsman compound miter

I just unpacked my new craftsman compound miter saw. It has a bevel lock handle located at the front of the saw. I can't get it to turn any way. I didn't want to try brute force. What am I doing wrong? How do I unlock the bevel?

Dewalt 12 inch compound sliding miter saw


This saw has locking indexing to set bevels for 52 degree crown molding the other common crown angle is 45 degrees, the bevel setting needs to be other than where the locking indexs are for the 52 degree crown. Problem is that the bevel lock does not securely hold at the bevel angle required. Is their an adjustment to get this lock to hold tighter.

Hello stella....... There is a locking mechanism on the miter saw to lock it on whatever setting you require. loosen that locking mechanism and the saw should move for you. Here is a schematic of the parts so you can see exactly which parts are involved

My saw is really stiff when you try to change the angle .I oiled it but this didn't help. I would like to know how to take it apart but I am un sure how to do it and what is in the boxed off area...


Exploded diagram with parts list for LS1016 10" Dual Slide Compound miter saw is here.

Owner's manual is here. If these aren't quite what you need, you can view other models of Makita miter saws, here.

One thing to bear in mind. There's a miter angle lock and a slide lock on the bottom front of the saw. If you don't have the miter angle lock loose enough, it will be difficult to turn the saw.

Locking mechanism on miter saw.


Push down on the handle . Facing the saw there is a spring loaded pin on the left rear side , right at the pivot point , pull out on it and raise the handle to the up position.

There should be two knobs on the saw where you adjust the miter of the saw. One of these knobs if turned clockwise tightens the swivel. I have the same saw except it is a 13 amp.
