How do I replace a saw blade on the Makita Table Saw model 2708. I got the old blade disconnected but the housing prevents sliding the blade out. Can anyone help?

Did you remove the center plate? It has to come out before you can remove the blade. Also make sure that the saw is unplugged before you go any further. If you still have questions contact me and I will do what I can. Also if you would like you can download a schematic of this tool at Makitatools.com just type in your model and look at the schematic. Good luck

Makita L1011 compound sliding saw with sticky miter table


The LS1011 doesn't have a table angle release lever like the newer models so it's harder too swing the table from angle to angle, this also causes the plastic swing body to crack. Have you loosened the locking screw for the table? The table may have to be removed and the pivet shaft greased. I had this problem with an old Makita Table Saw 10" 2600.

HAVE OLD MAKITA 2708 TABLE SAW HOW DO I SQUARE THE BLADE


Hi rjames16,

Are you wanting to square the blade to the rip fence, to the miter fence or does the blade show runout?

To square the rip fence to the blade, lay a combination square or engineer's square along the blade with the short leg against the closest end of the fence and even with the near end of the blade. Slide the square along the blade so that the short leg is even with the far end of the blade. Loosen the lock knob and move the far end of the fence until it touches the leg of the square. Tighten the lock knob. Recheck and adjust the fence until it is perfectly square to the blade.

Adjust the miter fence to the blade in a similar fashion except that the short leg of the square will lay against the miter fence. Adjust until the long leg is aligned with the blade. The instructions for these adjustments are in the owner's manual.
You can download a copy at this website: http://www.makita.com/en-us/Modules/Tools/ToolSupport.aspx?ID=604

Copy and paste this entire address into your browser and a page will open with 2 Adobe documents. One is for the owner's manual, the other for the parts breakdown.

If you have blade runout, remove it from the saw and lay it flat. Check for warping and if warped, replace it.

Hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate your vote. Thanks,

Handie Andie

I cannot get the blade on my Makita 2708 table swa to retract completely. I always leaves !/16" protruding above the table surface. Can you tell me how to fix this?


It likely has too large a blade. It may be a 9.5 inch saw with a 10 inch blade on it. This can go unnoticed until you want to use the router mount or somesuch. Otherwise, it could be debris on the screw base.
anyway, that's where I would start.

I have an old Makita table saw and need to change the blade. It is a circular saw mounted under a table. I can't find the stop that allows me to unscrew the fixing nut on the blade. It is Makita Model...


This link will take you to Makita and display an owners manual where you will see that the saw should have came with the necessary wrenches to change the blade. If they are not available I have used two different methods. Take care with either, that blade is just waiting to getcha. 1. I have clamped a pair of vice grips directly on the blade and let them stop against the saw top to keep the blade from turning or 2. I have levered a peice of soft wood against the blade to keep it from turning. According to Makita the thread is righthand, so you can apply the righty tighty lefty loosey rule to determine which way to loosen the nut. Good luck I hope this helps.

Bosch table saw model 4000


It sounds like the pinion on the armature and or gear are stripped. The only way to find out is to tilt the blade and remove the motor housing from the diaphragm and check it. If replacing the armature I would recommend also replacing the bearings and brushes as preventative
