The Blade Arbor is held to the bottom of the table with mounting screws and stop/adjusting screws. Loosen the mounting screw and adjust the stop screws to make Blade true with miter slot.

SOURCE: 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!

SOURCE: How do you change the

With the saw unplugged, push the spindle lock in on the motor side of the saw (a short black rod) while turning the blade by hand. The spindle lock will seat and hold the blade still so that you can use a wrench to loosen the nut that holds the blade on. Use the spindle lock again for tightening a new blade on the saw.

My Dewalt miter saw DW718 seems frozen. When I squeeze the handle, the blade doesn't move and the motor makes a sound like it's laboring, but stuck.


There's a little black button to press to lock the blade so you can loosen the screw. Did it get stuck in the in position? Can you turn the blade by hand (unplugged of course)?
I believe the 718 has a belt drive. Could the belt be broken and be buckled or twisted in its case preventing any movement?
Was it left out in the weather and did you get water in the bearings?

I believe my table saw blade is not accurately aligned with the table and I can't find my Owner's Manual.


OK, first you should understand that the blade needs to be aligned with the miter slot. The easiest way to check this is to use a ruler.

UNPLUG YOUR SAW BEFORE BEGINNING!

First, use a pencil or a marker to mark the outside of one of the teeth on your blade, on the same side of the blade as the miter slot you're going to measure from. Position the marked tooth at the front of the table, then measure from the side of the marked tooth to the leading edge of the miter slot. To determine if it is aligned correctly, you simply spin the blade around where the marked tooth is at the back of the table and measure it again to the leading edge of the miter slot. The measurements should match. If you want to be more accurate you can use a machinists dial gauge to measure within 1/1000 of an inch.

If the measurements are off, you need to loosen the trunion bolts that mount to arbor to the table just slightly, then use a dead blow to move the table in the appropriate direction.

Search youtube for "table saw allignment" to find lots of videos showing this technique.

Also, here is a copy of your owners manual:

Not knowing what make or model miter saw you have here's how most of them work. There should be a long arm, about half straight and half having a lazy 'S' shape to it going from the base near where the upper head pivots up to the blade guard. It should be attached to the base with a shoulder screw so it is free to pivot. The shoulder screw in the blade guard (it may or may not have a bearing on it) passes through an elongated hole in the lazy 'S" end of the arm. Somewhere about half way down the arm there should be a screw through a bearing or bushing in the upper metal housing that rides on top of the arm. As the head is lowered for a cut the mid-point bearing pushes the arm down and pulls the blade guard up. If any of these three screws fell out, the system won't work.

Which bolts do i loosen to adjust the 45% angle of my blade? Ive already squared up my blade by using a square and laid it down on the deck and squared the back rail like that> but how do i square...


To adjust the bevel, (blade angle), loosen the black lever at the back of the unit, tilt the blade housing using the handle (this may require a fair bit of force) until the arrow on the scale is at 45 degrees then tighten the black lever.

How to change the blade?


I don't know if this will help you much but I've got a DeWalt 14 inch chop saw and a 10 inch miter saw and they both have a small lever on the right hand side of frame just behind blade If you depress this lever and slowly rotate blade until it drops into place this locks the blade for changing. Hope this helps you. Thanks.
