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.

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!

How do I fix my spring loaded lower blade guard on my circular saw


I need to know the make and model of your saw in order to help you.

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.
