You do not have to drill anything out, if you are talking about the hold-down locking pin that keeps the blade assy locked down when not in use. I have created a tutorial for replacing the locking pin, you can find it here, http://mgfic.com/dewalt708_lockingpin.htm

Concept MS100 mitre saw blade guard dillema.


I have changed the blade a few times, There is no need to remove the spring, etc. All you do is remove the bolt holding the guard and rotate it counter clockwise and it exposes the blade.

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

Can't change mitre angle


you need to remove the guide fence with the screws on the back. then you remove the throat plate and there is the bolt is that keeps it all together.

Just took one apart last week, not really difficult

I lost my manual and need to adjust the bevel settings


Make sure its a compound mitre and not just a mitre saw. The check in the back for a round knob with degrees marks on it, theres your adjuster.

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
