Blade guard spring assembly for LS1011

My saw was sticking when it was up. I tried to fix it but got out of the fryiny pan into the fire. Do you have any pictures of the configuration of the parts assembly for the spring loaded blade guard?

    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.

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.

What is the spring for in the 2000w makita circular saw


Other than carbon brush springs, the only other spring that I know of on a circular saw is for the blade guard so that it will automatically return to cover the blade after you make the cut. There should be a hook or a bend in each end of the spring and each end has a certain spot where it hooks so that it pulls the blade guard back in place.

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
