    Thanks Rowdy

    we tried the "soaking in vinegar" and then ensuring plenty of CRC lubricant first.

    then we tried your suggestion and it did loosed it and let it slide slightly on the collett however we slightly burred the end of the bit over and then had to cut the end off the bit. Then as we were trying to tap the bit back through the collett we actually plit the collett in two so end result was bit gone. collett gone but the big locking nut saved.

    However my good friend lent me his collett and I have been able to do the job I needed to do this weekednd so off to the Makita store on Monday to obtain a new Collett.



    thanks for your advice.



    regards

If I understand this right you can't remove the bit from the collet. If this is true there might be dirt on the collet and you can try and blow it out with compressed air. What I would do if that doesn't help is support the collet nut allowing the bit to hang free and gently tap on the back of the bit and this will remove it. It is possible that you may have overtightened it or the bit has a burr on it. Good luck

Replacing 5007 baseplate


I hope we're talking about the same nut, is it the one on the lever to lock the cutting depth? If so, it's held in place by a lock plate that you remove by taking out the small pan head screw next to the nut. After you take the lock plate off the nut should come off easily.

Can't get nut off to change blade can I dissassemble from back?


Probably not, Remember the nut is a reverse thread. Your best bet it to try some penetrating fluid or try tapping the nut with a screwdriver, hopefully the vibration will help loosen it. Another trick that sometimes works if the machine has a diamond blade or an abrasive wheel with some life left on it is to put on a pair of heavy duty work gloves. Lock the arbor and try to grab the wheel tight and try to spin the wheel loose with your hand. Don't forget to unplug the machine before attempting to remove the wheel.

I don't know how to change the grinding blade on my makita angle grinder.


There is a nut that you release from the middle of the grinder wheel, (grinder blade)
This nut is flat and has four holes in it.

You will see you are providing a spanner wrench to remove this nut. The wrenches' actual name is Lock Nut Wrench. It has a U shaped end with two pins sticking out. On on each side of the U shape.

The pins are inserted into the holes in the flat lock nut, located in the middle of the grinding wheel. The wrench is laid flat against the grinding wheel, with the two pins of the wrench going into any two holes of the nut.

At the top of the Makita grinder you will see a Black button. The button is pushed down to keep the grinding wheel from spinning. Holds the grinding wheel in place, as you turn the lock nut loose. When you release the button, a spring inside pushes the button back up out of the way.

As you view the Makita grinder, Release Button towards the Back, grinding wheel towards you, the nut is turned to the LEFT, to loosen. It is a Left threaded nut.

The grinding wheel spins to the Right. Using a left threaded nut insures that the nut will stay tight, due to the direction the grinding wheel spins.

How do you change the grinder disk. I have the tool with the two pronges that slide into the nut but the wheel keeps spinning. There must be a trick?


On the top of the grinder there should be a button. hold that in while turning the disk (please have the grinder unplugged while you do this).
The button wil drop further in when it finds the notch in the gear. This will lock the spindle, allowing you to remove the retaining nut.

Lock nut on Makita 9069 is stuck & I can't loosen it. Using the lock nut wrench, but it won't budge. Any suggestions?


Make sure you are turning wrench and nut clockwise to remove nut and counterclock to put back on,you will never get nut off if turning counterclocwise,threads pitch is opposite to screw pitches.
You are tightening and did not know it maybe???
Other option:

Need to put lock nut wrench in a vise jaw and clamp, then place tool on wrench and press down and turn. This should give you added leverage to break loose nut,and btw make sure to turn clockwise to unscrew and clockwise to tighten,this is opposite of what you might do to tighten or untighten

Changing the disc


There are two methods in changing a disk.
somewhere on the machine you will see an arrow showing you
the direction the disk travels when being used, the nut that holds the disk
on always undoes opposite to this.

normal method

unplug grinder, use the 2 spanners supplied with the grinder.
one will look like a normal spanner but thinner, this goes on the nut over the disk.
the other spanner has 2 nodules which fit in the holes on the nut under disk.
whilst holding the disk stationary with the thin spanner, rotate the noduled spanner
in the oposite direction to the disk rotation when being used.
on some models of grinder, a button on top of the grinder must be
pressed in, this stops the rotation of the disk when replacing disk.
This button performs the same function as the flat spanner.

emergency method

If you cannot find or have lost special spanner(s)
pushing the palm of your hand firmly onto the disk surface and rotating
the disk with a sudden **** in the opposite direction to that when being used
may loosen the nut. if the nut is tight hold the disk firmly and use an old
screwdriver in one of the holes and tap nut loose with a hammer on screwdriver.
last resort........if possible break the disk using pliers and remove all pieces.

putting a new disk on is opposite to method that you used to remove one.
