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

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

Compound Mitre Saw Motor turning, spindle isnt.


I have went to 3 different sites and cannot find the model number listed on them, I did look at a Ryobi saw and they indicate it is an assembly. but before I did that I would try and removing the gear from the spindle. It is possible that when it spun it put a burr in the parts and you would have to use a little extra effort to remove them I would suggest going to a repair shop and having them press them apart and see what you canfind that way. Sorry I couldn't find more for you

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
