On the front there is a knob that needs to be loosened. The problem is if you just loosen the inner knob. You must also loosen the bigger, outer knob ...then it will slide.

There should be a release knob or switch on the rail (the part that slides) of the saw. There shouldn't be really any moving parts there , so if you see a little knob loosen it to see if it slides. Good Luck

How do I replace the linear ball bearing on a c8fb2 Hitachi miter saw


Its not too difficult:
1) There are 2 retainer pins located on the rear slide support (#4 on breakdown) - carefully drive these out with a punch - be careful to support the bracket so you don't break it.
2) remove the rear support and slide the saw head and arms out of the bearing.
3) Remove the 2 covers (front and rear) over the bearing
4) loosen the allen head set screw on the housing that holds the bearing in place
5) using a large socket and a plastic hammer - gently tap out the old bearing.
Reverse process to replace.
Do not use grease or oil on the bearing or slides - use a pure, clear silicone spray that dries completely - grease & oil attract & hold dirt and debris and will cause bearing failure.

My 10 inch mikita slide saw just quit working. I tested the trigger switch and it seems to be fine but the saw motor won't run. Does anyone have any ideas?


Try another tool in the same power outlet. It may have popped a breaker. Make sure the blade turns freely. Does the motor have brushes that should be looked at? Hope this helps!

How do I remove the threaded rod from beneath the turn table of a Mikita LS1013 Slide Compound Mitre Saw ? I have removed the two black turning/tightning handles but cannot see how the rod is removed.


if you removed the handle from the rod you would need to put a pair of pliers on it gently and remove it. or if you turn it upside down and remove the tube from sliding mechanism you can grip the rod from there and unscrew

The vertical blade stop is not true vertical. What adjustments are there to adjust the stop?


If you look on the back of the saw where the pivot is, there should be a bolt on either side that should adjust how much bevel there is . As for a 90 degree angle, there should be a locking pin or stop to keep it from leaning out of square. Be sure that it is accepting the pin properly and that it is clean. Not sure if there is an adjustment on the sliding saw, but i know there wasn't on my dual compound mitre saw

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...
