Table Saw blade

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

My blade is not square to the table i,e if I make a 90deg cut, it is about 1/16 wider at the top of the board than it is at the bottom. I've lost my owners manual and was wowndereing holw I go about...


Set your saw square using a combination square if you have one. Then to to adjust the saw to stay square there should be a gold coloured nut that you can adjust on the right side below the lever you use to unlock the saw when setting what angles you want to cut. Either move it in or out to get the proper setting. Hopefully this answers your question.

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.

How do I change blade non model 2708 table saw?


You should have a stamped metal box-end wrench that came with the saw. Place it over the blade retaining nut, and drive the motor belt by hand to allow the wrench to tap on the table behind the blade. This will loosen the nut so that it can be removed by hand (this is a left-hand thread situation). Tightening the nut is the reverse operation and it is not necessary to drive the nut tight with a hammer--it will tighten enough during saw operation. A safety manual will say to remove power from the machine when doing this! Hope this helps!
