12'' Ryobi miter saw with loose blade

I have a 12'' Ryobi miter saw with a laser. I can make about 25 cuts and then the blade comes loose. I had the laser and bolt replaced and the problem didn't go away.

    What is the model number and I will try and find a breakdown. But in the meantime make sure that all your flanges and spacer washers are in place, I would tighten the blade using the spindle lock and UNPLUG the saw and with the spindle lock still engaged and with gloves on see if you can turn the blade by hand. This would indicate either a flange or possibly a blade problem. Let me know

    Try putting lock tight on the bolt threads.

You may need to use lock tight on the threads. Also replace the standard washer with a lock washer if possible.

Tip

My Blue Laser


Ever wish you could make that perfect cut the first time with your miter saw or table saw ? Simple if you put a strip of wide blue tape on base of saw and cut the tape with your saw ! Now you know where the blade will cut, now mark your wood, move the wood and the pencil mark to edge of tape that you just cut and cut it. That simple and easy to calibrate verses the red lasers that come on some saws that to me never work right to begin with.

Any guard blade for a saw miter


Yes, Did you buy it new? It has two heavy plastic seen through plate that are attached to each other. This safety shield is gravity fed. That mean as one pull down the saw the safety guard will pivot into the upper shield. As the saw go back up after cutting a piece of wood. The safety shield will drop back into it safety position covering the 12" blade. GB...stewbsion

This is common IF the blade clamping nut becomes loose... the blade will free wheel on the arbor after the motor stops. It can tear up the arbor so investigate this possibility immediately.

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

I need a part


I checked a couple sites including Ryobi and they all want 126.50 for the laser guide. If you want you can go to Ereplacementparts.com or Ryobitools.com and type in your model number to make sure. I was guessing but the parts I saw fit the 12" saw. Good luck
