    I inadvertently release the spring in the blade guard and I am unable to put back in place. Any suggestions how to put back in proper position?

    Bob, you can go to Makitatools.com and type in your model number and download a schematic for this tool. That lower blade guard problem is not that hard to cure. Good luck

    I occasionally need to take off the blade to replace or clean. Today was such the case. When I took off the guard of course the spring dropped. When I put it in what seemed to be the proper positioning I worked on it for hours trying to decide which positiaiong the exterior washer went. Yes it's the expterior to the phillips screw that unhooked the guard housing.... I then turned the spring around to the next posible positioning and after 5 hours I was able to plug in the tool and the rest is history.. So when looking at the interior housing with the spring location against my stomach / at 6:00 I initially thought the ends faced downward, I flipped the ends upward again where it could only fit. I then tried for the 34th time and presto! I hope this helps. I actually hope that this posting is still around when I take it off again. The owners manual doesn't delineate the positioning.

How to I fix a Ryobi Miter Saw Blade Guard which is not retracting?


Sound like a piece of wood may have driven the arm up which operates the guard, if you remove the screws holding the guard support plate to the saw you should be able to remove the guard assembly, the arm can then be re-bent down on the end so that it meets the angled plate on the back of the guard and pushes the guard through the entire stroke, the other reason could be a damaged guard, when the centre screw is removed the plates can be removed from the guard, note how the spring and plates are assembled prior to dismantling, check the inside centre of the perspex guard and ensure the 4 protrusions which engage with the drive plate haven't broken off, if sow the guard will need to be replaced, this may now be an obsolete part , if so purchase a Makita guard as they are the same

B & D #3051 worm drive saw: How do I access the return spring for blade guard?


Link,
Usually you will have to remove the blade guard to get access to that. There is usually a rubber stop with a screw going through it that you will have to remove, and a spiral spring clip on the inside of the hub of the blade guard that will also have to be removed and then you should be able to lift the blade guard off the saw. The spring will hook around the blade guard and the other end will hook to the saw housing. Hope this helps!

When replacing blade spring for the safety cover fell out. Not surewhere it came from.


On most brands of circ saws, there will be a lug/tab on the back of the lower blade guard and also a hole or screw point on the upper inside of the main/fixed guard. The spring should have a hook at either end that will go on these fixing points.

Ryobi TSS100L blade guard spring


I think what you are refering to is a circlip washer , and can only be
fitted with ( CIRCLIP PLIERS ) do you know any Michanics or Engineers as they are bound to have a set in their toolbox ,on the other hand you
can buy them. What they do is work in the opposit way normal pliers do
when you squees the handles together the jaws open,therefor opening
the (CIRCLIP ) and allowing you to place it over the pin and into the
recess. Hope this has been of some hellp goodluck T.C.

I don't have this particular model in my shop right now but almost all circular saws work like this. From the blade side of the saw, the spring attaches to a hole in the blade guard usually around the two to three o'clock position. With the blade guard correctly positioned on the saw, wrap the spring clockwise around the bottom of the hub and back up the nine o'clock side. There is another hole or tab inside the top of the upper blade guard somewhere around the twelve to two o'clock position. Hook the end of the spring there and test the guard for free movement throughout it's range of motion.

Replacing the blade guard spring


there is a hold in the lower guard for the loop and the other end wraps around the guard slightly and there is a hole in the back of the upper guard. You can go to Milwaukeetool.com and download a breakdown for the tool Also when you have the blade off I would try using compressed air to clean the area and spray some lubricant on the hub to lubricate. The guard should "snap" back when done sawing. Let me know if you need more help

I am missing the part that brings the guard back when you lower the saw blade


I am assuming that you have some type circular saw?
Most popular saws use a spring to return the guard,with the saw unplugged raise the guard and see if the spring is there(you may need to take off the blade) if it is not there,replace with proper spring.one end of the spring will hook onto the fixed 1/2 of the guard the other to the front of the moving guard(consult manual if possible).once this is done insure that the guard mover freely and is not in the way of the blade.Replace the blade in proper direction check guard again for proper travel,make sure everything has been re-tightened .
If the spring is there check for material build-up or debris that is causing
guard not to move,remove blade clean debris or obstruction,replace blade and check for proper operation.Also visually inspect where the moving guard is attached to the saw for any unusual marks or wear this could be a sign that some type of unsafe situation exists,if this happens refer to a pro to fix or buy new never use a saw without a properly working guard,it took 141 stitches to repair my friends leg.
