There is a little spring action pin at the back of the saw. Pull it out, and it will unlock.
Look near the base by the hinge.

HOW DO i UNLOCK MY MITER SAW TO LIFT THE BLADE AND ARM


If all you are trying to do is get the blade arm up so you can use the saw in the first place: Press down a bit on the entire blade arm and that will allow you to pull the locking pin to the out position -- the pin is on the left side toward the rear, smallish, and shiny silver in color... you should be able to reach out to the pin with the left hand while pressing down with the right hand.

I have a Makita LS 1013 compound miter saw. The locking knob that locks the saw from sliding back and forth no longer works. I downloaded the owners manual and parts list but I can't seem to correctly...


check position 79 the spring that pushes against the table and also the end of the locking knob to make sure not rounded over/worn not applying pressure to the locking spring.

How do I remove 12" blade from from dw705 miter


loosen the guard screw, UNPLUG tool first, move the guard out of the way, there is a spindle lockon the backside of the gearcase push it and slowly turn the blade until it engages and then remove the bolt, it is a left hand thread. DO NOT disassemble the guard, just loosen bolt and move out away from blade also you need to have the head in the raised position.

I took the blade guard assembly off in a misguided move to clean it. I can't figure out how to position the spring pin in order to engage the cover. BIG project lined up for the weekend-need it working...

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!
