How to remove turn base from base on a Makita LS1011 Slide Compound Saw?

I have dismantled the saw and the turn base is still connected to the base but I can't see how to separate them. I have removed the screw which goes through the turn base into the base. Swivel point in base turns with turn base.

If you have removed the kerf boards and the center bolt the saw will lift straight off the turn base. It is possible the aluminum is deformed a little, but it will pull straight up and off if that bolt is out

SOURCE: Makita LS1011- when power is turned off there is a

Hi, Thanks for getting back to me, sorry for not making it clear but it was a 2 part question. I have a LS1011N and assumed it would have an electric blade brake like mine. When the bearings are bad it doesn't take long to also wear out the brushes so the electric brake not working full time is a symptom of that failure. Since yours doesn't have a brake then you are right in half of your guess of the gears the other half would be bearings. The only way I know to tell with the thing still assembled is to hold a screwdriver to the rear of the motor case and put your ear on the handle and run the saw and listen for the sand like sound of a bad bearing. If you don't hear anything like that it has to be worn gears and for that you have to look. Good Luck, this should Fixya!

SOURCE: Compound Mitre Saw Motor turning, spindle isnt.

I have went to 3 different sites and cannot find the model number listed on them, I did look at a Ryobi saw and they indicate it is an assembly. but before I did that I would try and removing the gear from the spindle. It is possible that when it spun it put a burr in the parts and you would have to use a little extra effort to remove them I would suggest going to a repair shop and having them press them apart and see what you canfind that way. Sorry I couldn't find more for you

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.

Change blade Makita LS1030 10-Inch Compound Miter saw


There is an 8mm bolt on the front of the guard. Loosen/remove this and the central guard mount will drop slightly. Behind the metal guard is a slide lock for the blade spindle. Push the lock bar and turn the blade untill it catches and is held solid. Then remove the blade fixing bolt and bobs your uncle. Alternativly, with all mitre saws, you can just pop an old bit of wood on the work base and then use the spannrer/allen key supplied to turn the blade so it bites into the wood as if you are trying to cut it. This will hold the blade steady and you will also be turning the bolt in the right direction.

My saw is really stiff when you try to change the angle .I oiled it but this didn't help. I would like to know how to take it apart but I am un sure how to do it and what is in the boxed off area...


Exploded diagram with parts list for LS1016 10" Dual Slide Compound miter saw is here.

Owner's manual is here. If these aren't quite what you need, you can view other models of Makita miter saws, here.

One thing to bear in mind. There's a miter angle lock and a slide lock on the bottom front of the saw. If you don't have the miter angle lock loose enough, it will be difficult to turn the saw.
