Question about Makita 5012B 12'' Electric Chain Saw
With the electric makita you should make sure the bar is sitting on that oval slide piece on the saw. they should fit together so that the bar will sit flush against the clutch plate and saw. attach the cover with the nut and tighten just enough to hold the cover on. then turn the screw on the nose of the saw, next to the bar, and then tighten the nut the rest of the way. if there's slipping or the chain wont tighten you should inspect the bar to make sure it is sitting flush against the saw.

My name is Dennis and I don't feel qualified to give you a positive answer because I have never owned an electric chain saw. Your request for assistance keeps showing up at my home site because I answer questions about gas chainsaws. I think your guess is reasonable to try and see if the bar stays tightened, remember that with use, wear will loosen the chain if the bar moves or not.
Glad to be of assistance sorry I havent responded sooner I thought someone else would by now.
I don't feel comfortable asking you to rate this solution but I can learn from your rating. Thanks

All the saws I use that do not need the cover removed to tighten the chain. If the tightening parts are in the cover you can't adjust the tension with the cover off Other saws the pin is on the saw side To tighten the chain there is a pin that fits into a hole on the bar. Turn the adjusting device to move the bar forward to tighten the chain. If you get it too tight it will not move.
