Dewalt DW 705 Type 1 Hard to pull down to cut material

I have a dewalt dw705 type 1 miter saw. With the saw in the most upright position its hanging up some when you pull it down to cut your material. Hangs up to the point that when you pull it down the gaurd linkage is bending some. Also if you lift the gaurd with your hand to try and rotate it up and out the way it will catch the blade but once you get the saw coming down as if your going to cut something, the gaurd doesnt catch the blade, only does it if your manualy moving the gaurd with your hand. gotta be some type of adjustment to fix this. Sure could use a manual for it as well but cant find one. Any help would be greatly apprecaited.

Go to www.2helpu.com that is the dewalt site. You might have to change the link arm that moves the guard up. They get bent over time. Check other parts on the raise and lower assy for wear at the same time.

Either the blade or the guard is out of alignment. You will have to check and find out which one is the culprit.

The Switching should go like this

(single letters denote wire color)

Y---o o---R

B---o o---B

The contacts where the black wires attach are the points on the switch that break when continuity is checked.

SOURCE: DEWALT DW705 MITER SAW BRAKE DOES NOT WORK

Could be worn brushes, dirty commutator or a combination of both. Unplug the tool and remove one brush at a time noting the condition and length. Use a flashlight look into brush tube and also not condition of commutator. I would blow is out with compressed air and you can try turning the brushes 180 deg and retry. That is usually the problem

the commutator might be dirty, try and turning the brushes 180 degrees and you might have to clean the commutator with a stone for that purpose to seat the brushes.

How to replace arm locking pin on a dw705 Type 4 miter saw


Can't remember how much access there is at the back on that model, on some you have to take the main hinge pin out to get to it and move the top arm assembly out of the way. Not always the easiest of jobs.

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.

DW705 Miter saw Spark in motor Compartment


Yes spark in motor compartment is normal. You only need to worry if you see a lot of sparks flying out of the motor compartment! Most power tools will spark inside the motor compartment (particularly if carbon brushes are used).

Bevel and miter could be off... Consult your manual for how to adjust these correctly, but usually the bevel has a 0-degree setting screw or adjustment, and the miter adjustment on the saw is usually done by altering the fence position... Again check your manual for specifics on your saw.
