Makita LS1216 is not sliding well, what do I do to make it slide better?

First, look underneath to ensure the lock mechanism is not dragging creating your trouble.
Second, wipe down the rails with thinner to remove any rosin from the wood - clean up any rust with a scotchbrite pad and spray down with 100% pure silicone spray (DO NOT use WD40 or the like - it will attract sawdust & debris and make the problem worse) If the problem continues you should replace the pillow bearing (not a job for the faint of heart I will warn you).
Best of luck

Makita LS 1212F brake

The brake on these saws is a controlled by the switch; it allows power to only one side of the field when you release the switch thus pulling the motor to a stop. In order to get your brake working again you have to replace the switch with Makita part number 651923-1, Switch TG70B. You can put in a generic switch that fits but the blade will spin slowly to a stop every time you release the switch, which you may have now.

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.

New uc3520a chainsaw will not work

240VAC European Model

From the Makita manual:
If the saw does not start when the ON/OFF switch (1) is actuated, it will be necessary to release the chain brake.
- Pull the hand guard (6) firmly in the direction of the arrow until you feel it catch.

electric motor does not function
no power supply
cable defective
chain brake actuated
Mains fuse blown
If these don't work return it, maybe it is defective. Test the new one in the store.

Makita Saw blade brake doesn't work.

If the model number is right it could be a couple things, I would try and blow the motor housing and area surrounding it with compressed air. Second I would FIRST unplug the saw and remove the brushes and check the condition, if they appear burnt I would replace them, if there is dirt or worn brushes it could cause a problem but before I got deeper into this tool I would recommend checking the date of purchase and seeing if it is still covered under warranty. This a fairly new model for them. If not let me know and I will look at a schematic for this and try and help more in depth.
