Question about Makita 10" Dual Slide Compound Miter Saw with Light LS1013F
I have a Ryobi dompound slide mitre saw (don't know model no.) and both rails are a bit rusted, I went to use it the other day and the slide mechanism is jammed - doesn't seem to be because of the rust though, it sounds like something is knocking against something on the inside, it moves about 4-5mm and that's it (it's jammed half way along).
I've tried to take the backing plate off to have a look inside but can't get the screw undone - the screwdriver just strips the head of the screw (I stopped when the screw wouldn't turn, I didn't actually strip it!).
Also, the locking knob for the slide is intact, hasn't broken off in place, the end of the knob still has the machine finished end.
Try squirting WD 40 all over the rails and into the bearings...Your bearings could have rusted in place and won't turn. Or maybe one is rusted and the other turns a bit...You could use a good pair of vice grips to remove that stripped screw.if that will give you better access..
I haven't ever seen one jammed up like that though...
Otherwise, you might look up the parts diagram and see what you're getting into there, if there's anything that could have broken off inside that's hanging up..link here.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
