Blade brake not working 1/2 the time on Hitachi C15FB chop saw

"Flicking" the trigger will usually get it to engage, but changing the trigger did not really help

blade brake not working 1/2 the time on Hitachi C1 - d70d03f.jpg38ca9blade brake not working 1/2 the time on Hitachi C1 - 1add57c.jpgss=4367374.jpg063ef2e.jpg1add57c.jpg98eea3c.jpg The first picture is the only one I could find of your saw.
All saws are fitted with carbon bushes that contact the armature of the electric motor.
In time the carbon which conducts the electricity wears down, as they disintegrate there are particles of broken carbon connect with the armature giving an intermittent burst of power, eventually the bushes no longer contact the armature and the saw does not work at all.
The next photos show the approximate position of the cover to access the bushes, there is one one each side of the housing.

They usually unscrew and expose the spring plate the bush is mounted on, gently pull this out.
As you can see the bush is worn in a concave shape, and that the wide side is breaking up.
If this is your problem then take the bush and model number of your saw to a supplier or spare parts shop or the hitachi web site to get replacements.
Hope this helps.
If anyone finds this information helpful please tell fixya
Cheers

I bought a used Makita 2414b chop saw. Plugged it in and cannot find the power button to engage the blade?


There should be a small black button on the top of the handle which you have to press at the same time as you pull the switch.It is always getting lost. If it is there and the motor runs but the disc doesn't then the gears could be stripped.

Looking for the 8 1/4 blades for the mastercraft chop saw.?


Hello. Mastercraft carries a variety of 8 1/4 replacement blades that are "normally" an in-stock item. The blade is labeled as a circular saw blade, not a chop saw blade.

  • standard 40 tooth Product# 55-6953-6 aprox $25
  • general purpose 24 tooth Product #55-6976-2 aprox $30
There are others that the store can order in, or to pick up on line as well. You may also notice, that the general purpose blade is rated for 8-8 1/4 inch, most of these two sizes have the same size arbour and will both fit on your saw - this gives you a varied selection. Hope this helps.

My blade appears to cut or move straight. But when I cut a piece of wood on it it wobbles. You can't wobble the blade with your hand. It appears to be in there tight. What could be the problem?


You likely need to replace the blade i have hitachi 10 inch chop saw with the lazer i love it the best one i have ever had vary well build But any saw is olny as good as its blade if ti were a lesser mechine i would say it could be the baerings but i see how hitachi makes tools so i would say its the blade got over heated at one time now when it gets hot it looses its integreity buy good blades as a rule

Does Hitachi C12FCH cut Aluminium?


Hello. A muli-answer for this I'm afraid. The quick answer is yes depending.

Depending On:
  • Thickness of material
  • type of blade
If you are simply wanting to cut aluminum siding/soffit, then install a paneling blade backwards and chop down slowly

If you are referring to bar stock, you will - but not well. You will need a special quick-cut abrasive blade, and you may find you need to change the blades often.

If you wish to cut screen door trim, curtain rod, draft stop, Jolie Edging for ceramic tile, or other thin hollow/extruded materials - then the abrasive blade will do nicely for short/small jobs.

The main problem with cutting aluminum in a high speed rotary device is that the friction of the blade heats the metal fast enough that you get a coating on/in the blade. (In layman's terms - bunged up) The devices in machine shops are set considerably slower, and are usually cooled mainly with liquid.

Hope this answers your question satisfactorily. Good Luck and don't forget to rate this answer.

Thank You,
Richard

Just want to know the steps in changing a chop saw blade


there should be a push in switch near the top back of the saw that pushes in and locks the blade, look for this blade lock and than you take the screw off that holds the blade in place and make sure you know the order of the washers and locks so you can replace the same way you took off

Use a pencil and straight edge to mark the cutting line on the wood. Place the wood on the saw table and line the mark up with the saw. Place the mark on the right side of the blade to ensure proper cutting. Plug the saw in and put on your safety goggles. Support the wood on the work surface with your left hand, placing it far from the saw blade. Place your right hand on the handle, and push the trigger to start the saw. Move the saw blade down onto the wood. Put constant pressure on the handle to slowly move the blade through the wood. Release the trigger and raise the blade once the cut is complete. Make diagonal cuts in the same manner, by marking the wood and lining the mark up just to the right of the saw blade. Continue as you would for a straight cut. Remove the wood from the saw. Unplug the chop saw and dust the sawdust off. Remove the dust bag from the back and empty it. Vacuum any remaining dust off of the saw.
