How much oil goes in a Makita Worm Drive Saw

Makita 5277B does not have a window or a mark on the side to indicate how much oil goes in the gearcase. The have a rubber stopper with a little tail on it. I am thinking you fill until it touches the tail. Of course they say you need to go to the service center and get it filled or changed.

I need a switch for my black & decker 7 1/4 worm drive saw model 7395 type 1


That tool was discontinued in 1980 and parts are obsolete. You may be able to use a Skil 77 worm drive switch as many of the circular saw switches were configured the same. The switches are usually marked with a 1 and 2 on the back so make sure the wires are put on correctly as some will have the 1 on one side (top and bottom terminals) while others are on the top or bottom (next to each other).

Hello i need to know : circular saw need to oiling


the gearcase for this saw is under the blade and you would have to remove the blade and the screws holding the gearcase cover in place. There is a small amount of GREASE in this cavity. If you want to replace the grease use a small amount of white lithium type grease. DO NOT pack this area full or you will cause more damage. Let me know if you need more assistance and if you give me the model and brand I will locate a breakdown for you so that you know what is involved.

Will it harm my Makita Chain Saw to store it on its side when not in use? If I stand it the right way up the oil leaks out.


There is no problem storing it on its side, you could also sit it in a tray to catch any oil, it is not uncommon on many machines to find chain oil under them after they have been left.

I have 911 carrera 1995 I have noticed that the oil gauge is low down to red. I purchased a Gallon of oil and i put may be 3/4 of the gallon then checked while car running and seemed to me ok and also...


Check to see if there is white foam on the dipstick when you check the oil. If there is, then you have a cracked head or a broken head gasket. Antifreeze must be getting in the cylinders.

MAKITA DCS 341 SAW IS NOT OILING BLADE-HOW DO I REPAIR?


I was able to find an OM but no IPL and it is not a current model. With no IPL as a disassembly guide I cannot get into specifics. Makita is the parent company of Dolmar (German and actual manufacturer). A local Dolmar dealer may be able to help. You might also find help and guidance here:

I found a current DCS34-16 IPL here:
http://www.makita.ca/index2.php?event=tool&id=270&catid=40

it has an inboard clutch so I fear it will be of little value.

Oil System Plugged.
  1. Remove the clutch cover, bar, and chain, clean the bar groove, any holes and passages on the rear of the bar (both sides, consider rotating the bar), if equipped with a sprocket nose ensure it rotates easily at least one complete revolution. Clean the saw oiler hole and channel. Insert a blunted, hooked piece of wire through the oil filler hole and pull the hose in the oil tank out. Pay attention to the screen or filter on the free end (clean or replace, difficult to determine serviceability). Start the saw and see if it oils when revved up (oozes down side of saw). If yes reassemble your saw. If no, continue with 2.
  2. Work your way through the linkage (use IPL to identify components and locations) cleaning and replacing any defective parts as you go. Carefully check the hoses for cracks especially at bends and connections. If equipped with an oil pump it is usually behind the clutch (clutch is a left handed thread). Please make extensive notes & some digital pictures will help during reassembly.
If it does not oil on completion of 1 it is most likely a bad oiler or worm gear (see IPL that I cannot find). The folk at ArboristSite are very helpful. That is where I would go at the unsuccessful completion of 1. HTH

How much/what type of oil goes in my old wormdrive saw?


their owners manual doesn't give an exact quantity however they say to unplug the tool first then remove the fill plug and the lower plug and the oil should run out past the first thread. they recommend using their oil 80111 8 oz. tube however any good worm drive lubricant will work, Don't use anything like gear lube because the worm drive lube has an additive for anto foaming. Let me know if you need more assistance

I need to know how much oil goes into a skilsaw worm drive resvr.


Haven't heard anything so I checked the Milwaukee worm drive saw and they recomment about 1/2 oz. Make sure you use an oil for a worm drive that is not foaming. Hope this helps. Also when checking oir level have the shoe set for max depth and on a flat surface remove the oil plug, when filling tip the saw on its side and fill, turn back over and allow excess oil to run out if overfilled.

Circular saw Types


There are for types of circular saws available. 1. Worm Drive - The motor is in line with the blade, delivering enough torque to carve up wet lumber or saw through concrete, which makes a worm drive ideal for framing or major renovation jobs. With the handle farther back, a user can better resist kickback and steer the 16-pound saw through long rips. 2. Sidewinder - The motor sits alongside the blade, making for a lighter (11 pounds or less) saw, which is more maneuverable over a long day than a worm drive. 3. Small Sidewinder - Weight, balance, and handle size are all key features to consider when choosing a saw that fits you. For a slight-bodied person, a small model may be more appropriate than a full-size sidewinder. 4. Cordless - Battery-driven models have increased in size as their power packs have gained voltage, making them convenient tools out in the field or when the electricity's not on. However, cordless models still have limited run times and generate less torque than corded saws. 5. Trim Saw - For finish work or paneling, this is your best choice. blades range from 3½ to 412 inches.
