Question about Hitachi C12LCH 15 Amp 12Inch Compound Miter Saw with Laser and Miter Bevel Digital Display

1 Answer

I have a Hitachi C12LCH chop saw that won't start.

I was cutting some wood and when I went to make the next cut the motor would not start. I checked my circuit breaker but it was fine. I plugged a light into the outlet and it would turn on. When I pull the trigger on the saw nothing at all happens - no sound at all. It is as if the motor is not getting any electricity. I tried looking in the manual for troubleshooting but could not find anything. I could not find anything in the parts for a start capacitor so I am not sure what my next step should be.

    You need to take out the trigger and "jump" the two main cables and see if the machine runs.Take a look into this diagram and find out how to take out =http://www.ereplacementparts.com/hitachi...

Can I use my metal chop saw to cut wood if I replace the blade with a wood saw blade?


Its conversely sometimes possible if you was asking about a wood saw with a steel saw blade but i cannot advice that in both application its not safe because not only of the difference of power but most it is the much higher RPM by diameter, just beware always on the max rpm you can read on your saw blades!!, it can give strange accidents with objects it can grab and swinging outbroken parts away.

Macallister chop saw blade problem, the motor runs but when half way through cutting wood the blade stops ?


I'm not sure if you have a chop saw or circular saw. Either way, it sounds like the nut and washer are not tight enough to hold the blade. If you have a circular saw clockwise will tighten the nut and washer onto the blade and hold it in place. Most chop saws are a left hand thread and then you would turn the nut counter clockwise to hold the blade tighter. The blade wobbles because it is not tight.

How do you remove the blade on my toledo chop saw


Unplug the saw first. Then raise the guard and lower the blade onto a piece of wood to keep the blade from turning. Using a proper wrench, turn the nut in the direction the blade spins when cutting and remove the nut and blade.

I bought a ls1016 coupond mitre saw this week. I was cutting cedar 2x6 's today and had a few kick backs. I am building my deck and do not feel safe using the saw after the kick backs. Why as this...


Sounds as if the blade is dull. Or perhaps bent. A dull or bent blade blade will 'grab' the wood, rather than cut it, resulting in binding, or kickbacks.

Solution; replace the blade with a fine-toothed, good quality blade. If the blade is new, then check that the blade is bolted tight on the arbor. If the blade is loose, it can result in kickbacks.

Also, check that all the bolts/fasteners/locking mechanisms on the saw are tight, and in good working order. Sometimes a tool new out-of-the-box will have loose screws/nuts/bolts that need to be tightened up.

Also, when cutting, use a smooth, slow, motion, being sure to give the saw the time it needs to make the cut.

My blade appears to cut or move straight. But when I cut a piece of wood on it it wobbles. You can't wobble the blade with your hand. It appears to be in there tight. What could be the problem?


You likely need to replace the blade i have hitachi 10 inch chop saw with the lazer i love it the best one i have ever had vary well build But any saw is olny as good as its blade if ti were a lesser mechine i would say it could be the baerings but i see how hitachi makes tools so i would say its the blade got over heated at one time now when it gets hot it looses its integreity buy good blades as a rule

I do not have a compound saw, just a regular Hitachi skill saw. Often when I'm cutting through wood, the blade will suddently stop with trigger depressed. I can back it up and it immediatly starts again....


I would suggest 2 things... first check that your blade is tight... and second make sure that your power supply is adequate...no long skinny cords or sharing outlets

When cutting wood with band saw saw will cease up


This could have many causes...depending on the model of saw, the wood being cut, the blade you're using, etc. etc.
Check that the blade is correctly installed, up to tension, and sharp. Make sure the wheels run smoothly on their on, and under power. Check the horsepower of the motor, and make sure to keep the feed rate down within the motor's capacity. Finally, don't twist the work being cut to a smaller radius than the size blade will handle, or you will bind the blade in the cut.
If you are cutting wood with pitch or grain that is likely to be under tension, perhaps you need to insert a wedge into the cut to prevent the work from pinching the blade as it continues the cut.
I hope that leads to a solution. Sometimes all you can do is feed slowly and be patient...

Grinder question


Use a pencil and straight edge to mark the cutting line on the wood. Place the wood on the saw table and line the mark up with the saw. Place the mark on the right side of the blade to ensure proper cutting. Plug the saw in and put on your safety goggles. Support the wood on the work surface with your left hand, placing it far from the saw blade. Place your right hand on the handle, and push the trigger to start the saw. Move the saw blade down onto the wood. Put constant pressure on the handle to slowly move the blade through the wood. Release the trigger and raise the blade once the cut is complete. Make diagonal cuts in the same manner, by marking the wood and lining the mark up just to the right of the saw blade. Continue as you would for a straight cut. Remove the wood from the saw. Unplug the chop saw and dust the sawdust off. Remove the dust bag from the back and empty it. Vacuum any remaining dust off of the saw.
