Question about Saws

Can no longer lock saw to carry

My ryobi TS1550 compound miter saw is 3 years old. Over time the saw has become harder to close to insert the lock pin. I can no longer lock the saw in the closed position. I assume it is the depth adjustment but the owner's manual has no information on how to adjust.

Makita L1011 compound sliding saw with sticky miter table


The LS1011 doesn't have a table angle release lever like the newer models so it's harder too swing the table from angle to angle, this also causes the plastic swing body to crack. Have you loosened the locking screw for the table? The table may have to be removed and the pivet shaft greased. I had this problem with an old Makita Table Saw 10" 2600.

Ryobi compound miter saw Model TS1341 To rotate the table assembly on the base to change angle of cut is very difficult. The table assembly and base are aluminum that slide or rotate against each...


you might try some silicone lubricant spray (available at auto supply) the stuff is very slippery. spary a little on the underside parts that rub on one another, try not to get any of the silicone on the top parts of your miter box as it will get on the wood that you are tyring to cut and it will leave a stain.

How do i unlock the safety position on my Ryobi miter saw?


There should be a metal pin on the back left side(tool facing you) near the pivot point. Just pull this in or out to lock/unlock the safety position.

My RYOBI 10IN COMPOUND MITER SAW M#TS1352 is located in my second home and rarely used BUT the turntable has become nearly immovable. Previously, I used another miter saw for three years on a daily basis...


Well funny enough i'm actually the tool technician at a local home depot here in Pennsylvania and the issue seems like a simple oil with love. I prefer PB Blaster to WD40 for some applications, if rust is your issue that is. If it continues to give you a hard time the bolts/screws that hold the guide to the saw and lube them as well. Once you get things moving around again it should be fine. Then it's just maintenance!

How do you unlock 10" ryobi miter saw ?


When you are facing the saw look on the right hand side in the area where the arm pivots. There will be a silver shaft with a groove just in front and slightly lower than the pivot. If you hold down slightly on the handle and pull out on this shaft it will allow the arm to lift up. Locking the arm down is reverse.
Here is a link to the owners manual for this tool.

How do i unlock the saw haed


Hello Derrick,

Take a look at the right rear pivot point of the Miter Saw and you should see a shiney metal pin that you can pull out (it's captive so it'll only pull out 3/4" - 1") that releases the saw head lock mechanism. This is designed so it is easier to carry the miter saw around.

If you want to see exactly what I'm talking about, I've attached a link to the Ryobi web site that takes you to the manual for this saw, don't the model number throw you off, as they add some digits for reconditioned units, etc. Take a look at page 11, figure #2 and you'll see the head lock pin I'm referring you to. It's just about the Miter angle scale.

http://www.ryobitools.com/product_manual/file_url/378/TS1342L_329_eng.pdf

Please print out and save an electronci copy of this manual for future reference and use. I have a file folder on my home computer that I've titled "MY TOOLS" and I keep electronic copies for all the manuals for the tools and gear I have. That way, I'll always have one, even if I lose or damage the paper copy.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Loose replacement blade


I completely removed the blade and put it back on, tightening the locknut, and now it works perfectly. The blade has not come loose and have used the machine for the last 3 months. The only thing I can think of is that somehow I didn't have the blade correctly installed in the first place, although it didn't wobble or anything.

Changing the saw blade on a Ryobi Mitre saw


There may be a push button type blade lock, and on many of these saws the retaining bolt for the blade is backwards threads, e.i., looking at the top of blade retaining bolt, turn it clockwise to loosen. This would normally tighten, but in the case of many of these saws, it loosens it.
