SOURCE: Table Saw blade

Did you remove the center plate? It has to come out before you can remove the blade. Also make sure that the saw is unplugged before you go any further. If you still have questions contact me and I will do what I can. Also if you would like you can download a schematic of this tool at just type in your model and look at the schematic. Good luck

SOURCE: Unable to lift the saw blade Makita Miter Saw

Look at the pivot point on the rear of the miter saw for the push/pull locking pin. The pin is there so you can lock the saw in the down position for easier carrying. To unlock the saw, simply pull the locking pin out (Makita calls this the "stopper pin"). Then you can use the saw and easily raise and lower it for cutting.

As you might find it helpful to have, I have included a link from the Makita web site for a free copy of the owners manual that you can print or save for future use and reference. It has some handy info on use and care of your saw.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

A piece of a broken blade is stuck here the blade fits into the saw (Dewalt DW 303m). How do I get it out?

Craig, a drop of penetrate oil and you will just have to work at it with ice pick.small screwdriver, or needle nose pliers if you can, make sure you have blade release depressed while trying to pry blade shank out. Once you get it moving it will fall out. Clean and blow out blade port before inserting another blade.

Why does my makita saws-all blade pop out

To repair this you need the clamp service kit #195929-4 but be warned it is not for the faint of heart - there are a crazy amount of parts in this assembly and they have to go together precisely.
I would recommend having a service center do this one.

This thing vibrates so much that I can't feel where the saw begins or ends in my hands. It is new!!! Do all these things vibrate so much? I can only use it at about half speed or it slips out of my hands.

For the most part they do vibrate, that's why it is good to make use of the blade guard when cutting. It cuts back on the vibration. I have hand to use a saw without having that guard against what I was cutting and I thought I was going to have my arm fall off. You may want to check to see that the blade and that part the blade goes into are nice and tight. I've used many saws on different jobs, the best brand of saw for the vibration standpoint that I've found is Craftsman.
