Table saw motor burning


Sorry, but my advice is to throw it away. With the 5380 anything more than a cord is not worth repairing.
My recommendation is to buy a Makita 5007 series and stay away from Skil.

Replacing 5007 baseplate


I hope we're talking about the same nut, is it the one on the lever to lock the cutting depth? If so, it's held in place by a lock plate that you remove by taking out the small pan head screw next to the nut. After you take the lock plate off the nut should come off easily.

How to adjust saw to cut a perfect 90 degree and 45 degree cut


I would go to Makitausa.com and download a manual. what you have aproblem with is either a bent fence or just misalignment. simply all you need is a good square, put the head at 0 degree and check to see if out, making sure not to put square on the teeth of the blade, if it is out there are 4 13mm bolts that hold fence in place loosen them and starting from the left side put it at the exact dead nut. snug the bolt and then check the right side. I usually check them 3 times for accuracy when you are confident snug all the bolts and recheck. Let me know if you need more assistance

I cannot get a perfect 45 degree angle with my Makita circular saw. Is it me or the saw??


When using the gauge on your saw it is off on the 45 degree cut? If so you might have to use a tri Square every time you want to cut a 45. Sometimes the lock gauge for the 45 angle may be off some. When you put a tri square on the board you cut it is not a true 45 even though the saw says it is?

You can adjust the location where the blade drops into the groove in the table. Look on page 24 of this manual and you will see exactly how to adjust the table:

45 degree cut


Are you having problems with the miter or bevel ? Are you asking how to physically move the saw to that degree angle?
