The way it works is when it spins the spring part touches the other conductor. I had this problem but slightly and very carefully bent/moved the straight conductor toward the spring without them touching and has worked perfectly ever since with a visible line even in sunlight. If you unscrew the cover there will be a black plastic piece underneath, take that off and that is where the straight and spring conductors are. Be sure to put the plastic triangle back on and the cover screwed back on.

How do I fix the spring on the switch for a 10 inch ryobi miter saw? I can hear it rattling around and the switch won't work. Also plastic screws holding handle together are broken.


Hello Anonymous,
First locate the model number of your Ryobi Miter saw... then search Google for Ryobi Miter saw replacement parts... one result I got is below:
http://www.mastertoolrepair.com/ryobi-power-tool-parts-ryobi-miter-saw-parts-c-873_895_937.html
Try that link, select your Ryobi saw model and zoom into the provided drawings so you can locate the switch, screws, and spring (if needed). The part numbers are supplied and you can order them online easily on that same link... Then just repair your saw with the new parts. As you already noticed, the saw is easy to disassemble and get access to the parts for repair. Have fun and good luck...

I bought the 10" compound


I have been in the same situation in the past, with a mastercraft miter saw to a point of using playing cards to get that nice tight miter joint. placing the cards between the fence and the piece i was trying to miter.Rioby makes mastercraft all thought they are a good saw they have their limits to the precisions of their cuts. good for fences,decks, stuctural framing ect, were a degree two is not a big thing,but when making furniture or interior trim work or picture frames or hobby craft you need to buy a good pro saw like a dewalt or bosh sliding compoud miter saw they may cost more **** their worth the money they are very precise and will last a life time if taken care of .It will be worth the money when you get that perfect cut every time you use it,it will put the JOY and fun back in your projects and not to mention qualaty in your master pieces.

Lazer not working after batterys replaced


Mine did the same thing. I think it's a bad contact situation. I ended cleaning all the contact springs in the battery compartments and also putting a small dab of silicon on each battery before re-fitting the cover plate. This made sure the batteries were nice and snug in their housings. Make sure the batteries all have have the positive symbol (+) upwards when you refit them. You can also check the centrifugal switch. This is located under a triangular plastic cover. If you hold the batteries in place with your thumb, you can gently push the tiny weight against its contact and the laser should light up. DON'T LOOK DIRECTLY INTO THE LASER WHILE YOU DO THIS!!! This worked for me but I can't give any guarantees but, hey, what have you got to lose? Good luck.
