My craftsman miter saw cuts but it is not a straight cut.


Here's an old dude trick that might help.
Safety first! UNPLUG THE SAW.
- Take a framing square and set it against the fence. It should be flush with the fence on both sides of the blade. If not, slide the square to one side and pull the blade down into full cut position, then slide the square against the blade and fence to check for square. If square, slacken the bolts on the other half of the fence and align it with the correct side.
- A bit of messing about should have it lined up just fine.
- If it is off vertically, there should be some alignment possible.
Patience and safety.
You'll get it.

Change blade Makita LS1030 10-Inch Compound Miter saw


There is an 8mm bolt on the front of the guard. Loosen/remove this and the central guard mount will drop slightly. Behind the metal guard is a slide lock for the blade spindle. Push the lock bar and turn the blade untill it catches and is held solid. Then remove the blade fixing bolt and bobs your uncle. Alternativly, with all mitre saws, you can just pop an old bit of wood on the work base and then use the spannrer/allen key supplied to turn the blade so it bites into the wood as if you are trying to cut it. This will hold the blade steady and you will also be turning the bolt in the right direction.

Promblem with Makita 1013 ajusting blade to cut square


Just found your problem, what you need to do it unplug tool and get a good square. Set the blade at 0deg. and then put the square on the left side of the blade to check it. If it is out of square you would need to loosen the fence bolts (13MM) and adjust the fence, snug bolts on the left side and move your square to the right and recheck and then snug the bolts there, I always recheck the fence to ensure it is square and not moved before tightening the bolts fully. If the head is out there are bolts on the pivot that need to be adjusted and again recheck. If you go to Makitausa.com you can download an owners manual with instructions on what to do. Let me know if you still have problems.

It can be first determine where the misalignment is and it might something as simply as loosening a screw and drawing the base back to square, if not the base would have to be replaced and then realigned. it is not that difficult

Looking for help scouts have a carpentry merit badge from the 50s they talk about using a BEVEl and a Miter tools can you help


The bevel is an angle fiding tool. it consists of a wooden section about 4" long with a swivel bolt at one end connected to a slotted metal blade (similar to a 1 foot steel ruler). The bolt has a wing nut and bolt to allow loosenig to allow the blade to rotate and slide to the required angle where it is locked into position using the wing nut.
The mitre is a wooden block with slots cut into it at pre determined angles. ie 45 degrees. When cutting a mitre joint the wood is placed against the block and the saw follows the line of the slot cutting the 45 degree angle.
Hope this makes sense and good luck

Table and base not level (co-planar). Extension wings higfher than base as well.


Just read thru most of the user manual and they do not address this situation. Most major adjustments they list as Service Center meaning they might have to completely disassemble and find out hy this saw is not accurate, wish I had better news.
