Question about Saws
Gear that drives the blade damaged can I obtain replacement parts if so from where can I obtain parts UK only thanks
I would need to know what make the saw is. Most brands have a dealer locator on their websites. Alternatively contact your local power tool distributor or tool hire company and they might be able to get the part for you. If you are in or around S.E. London or Croydon visit either of our outlets. Maps etc on our website www.lakedalepowertools.com . When you contact your local dealer, remember to make a note of the make and model of your saw. If it is DeWalt there will sometimes be a type number aswell, and Bosch/Skill will have a ten digit identity code on the rating plate and that would be the best info to take (e.g. 1.604.321.742)

Probably a worn bearing. The only other thing that I have seen cause this is a bent spindle. This would usually occour if the machine has had an impact or if the blade has been suddenly jammed against a nail or something in the work that has caused it to jam and/or jump up.
A good indicator for bearing wear is to see how much play is in the blade in an up/down and side to side movement (unplug saw, safety first).
To check spindle, remove blade and run machine without the flanges etc on. Rest a scredriver gently on the shaft as it spins and see if you notice any (uniform) vibration.

Oh, you got it off. I bet you can put it back on again.
It's much easier if you take the blade off first. Then you'll be able to reach inside when you need to. Be patient, don't force it, and make sure when you get the spring reconnected properly that the guard moves freely out of the way when you chop, and returns when you raise the saw back up.
It's a bit of a trick, but I bet you can manage it..It's been awhile, but it seems to me there's a way to get the bolt started before you engage the tension on the spring...I'd have to have it in my hands to say exactly.
Here's a link to the exploded parts view at the Makita site, just in case. And it might help to have an extra pair of hands, or a piece of duct tape to hold the guard in place when you go to put the blade back on.

If you look on the left side of the saw near where you see that it pivots to go up and down. You will see some type of knob that you can pull out...you will need to push down on the saw handle to allow this to happen.
Hope this helps, RSMITH972278 P.S. PLEASE RATE MY ASSISTANCE

Testimonial: "thanks, got it working."
Mastercraft's help line is 1-800-689-9928. However this saw is no longer in production and parts are available only until stock is depleted. It was supplied by an european company called WMH Tool Group that apparently doesn't supply CTC any longer.
