Question about Makita Tools 12" Compound Miter Saw - LS1221

1 Answer

My two year old Makita LS1221 Miter saw will not allow me to change angle. locking pin does retract. table turns only with very,very large force and only a few degrees. I cannot seem to be able to lift off the rotating part from the stationary base even after removing the motor and center bolt.

Bosch Glide Miter Saw get stuck at 45 degree bevel to the left


Adjusting the miter angle involves two cast surfaces sliding against each other. If those surfaces have some irregularities, high spots on the two surfaces will bind against each other. You may have to disassemble the rotating table from the base and do some filing or grinding.

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.

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.

Unable to lift the saw blade Makita Miter Saw


Look at the pivot point on the rear of the miter saw for the push/pull locking pin. The pin is there so you can lock the saw in the down position for easier carrying. To unlock the saw, simply pull the locking pin out (Makita calls this the "stopper pin"). Then you can use the saw and easily raise and lower it for cutting.

As you might find it helpful to have, I have included a link from the Makita web site for a free copy of the owners manual that you can print or save for future use and reference. It has some handy info on use and care of your saw.

Makita Ls1212 works intermittently


Check the power cable. They could be broken or frayed and you are not getting enough power to it replace and then try to see if it works then. Make sure you buy the right size gauge for you machine

Cannot rotate the Dewalt 708 mod 3 saw horizontally


If you have loosened the handle a little and pulling the adjustment trigger didn't allow for movement,you may need to remove and clean the turn table.(don't forget,the handle must be loosened for the turn table to rotate)



Please rate this a fixya

How do you adjust the angle of the miter


It should move if you unscrew the handle at the base of teh table. There is also a lever on most of these saws, under the handle. Unscrew handle, operate lever to release locking pin and move. That's the theory anyway.
