Locking mechanism on miter saw.

The hubby left the miter saw in the locked position and I need to finish a home project this weekend. He is out of town and I can't reach him. Exactly how do I unlock the head of the saw to the upright position so that I can use it. Thanks

Push down on the handle . Facing the saw there is a spring loaded pin on the left rear side , right at the pivot point , pull out on it and raise the handle to the up position.

RK7136 locked in safe position . How do I unlock


I am guessing you got an answer by now, but I saw on Amazon someone asked this recently. I remember this problem when I got mine. I assume you mean the arm that lowers and raises the saw, not the locking mechanism for the table. As you face the saw, look at the guard. There is a slightly curved arm that goes from the guard toward the back of the saw. On the piece the guard arm attaches to at the back of the saw on the left side, there is a "pin" that sticks out on the left side. It looks like a bolt that is longer than the others near it. Gently push down on the top of the front of the saw to take pressure off the arm pin, and then just pull the pin to your left, like you were trying to remove it. It doesn't come out all the way, but releases the lock. If you have kids around, best to lock it when not using it...safety first. Oh...and their manual sucks!

Dewalt 12 inch compound sliding miter saw


This saw has locking indexing to set bevels for 52 degree crown molding the other common crown angle is 45 degrees, the bevel setting needs to be other than where the locking indexs are for the 52 degree crown. Problem is that the bevel lock does not securely hold at the bevel angle required. Is their an adjustment to get this lock to hold tighter.

Hello stella....... There is a locking mechanism on the miter saw to lock it on whatever setting you require. loosen that locking mechanism and the saw should move for you. Here is a schematic of the parts so you can see exactly which parts are involved

Unable to lift the saw blade Makita Miter Saw


Look at the pivot point on the rear of the miter saw for the push/pull locking pin. The pin is there so you can lock the saw in the down position for easier carrying. To unlock the saw, simply pull the locking pin out (Makita calls this the "stopper pin"). Then you can use the saw and easily raise and lower it for cutting.

As you might find it helpful to have, I have included a link from the Makita web site for a free copy of the owners manual that you can print or save for future use and reference. It has some handy info on use and care of your saw.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

I have a ms 150 miter saw that a relative gave me. Blade needs to be changed but the locking mechanism is stripped. How can I remove the bolt that holds the blade in place. Also the blade turns clockwise...


Jam a piece of wood between the blade and the table to stop it from turning while loosening the bolt. Circular saws never had locking mechanisms until recent years.
