Question about Makita 2704X1 Electric Table Saws

1 Answer

Angle lever stuck

The lever that needs to be released in order for the saw angle to be changed has got completely stuck, it will not budge. Has anyone else had this problem or know of a solution? I bought the saw in April and have used it about 3 times. The teeth on the cog that is used to change the angle have also worn down.

I am surprised at that amount of wear in so little use.
Apart from that the first thing to try is WD40 on any stuck item. But don't over force the thing as you might break something

When sharpening the chain saw chain what is the filing angle?


same as the angle of the chain. It is recommended you use your round file that accommodates the size of the tooth of the chain. count the cuts or motions (each tooth should be filed the same amount) if you cut the first tooth three times cut the balance three times. keep the exact angle of the tooth and do not deviate or the chain will not cut as well. if you over file and change the angle for the chain you are filing you may need to have a professional fix it or buy a new chain. the flat file is simply a light stroke to remove misc fragments off the top of the tooth or give it a sharper edge after the round filing is complete. when using a round file it is easiest to purchase a small holder so each stroke is stable and straight. good luck.

Buy the new brushes from the manufacturer. You already have the old ones out - put the new ones in the same way you took the old ones out.

Clamp Lever - How to loosen and tighten to adjust bevel.


The 8mm bolt head, which is below the "stop plate"--- for olack of a better word-- is only to ALLOW ROOM to complete the swivel of the bevel-- ONCE THE CLAMP LEVER IS LOOSENED!! I neither have been able to loosen the CLAMP LEVER!! There is a large philips screwhead inside the handle of the lever, which I tried to loosen without much luck. I am very afraid to force that... ALSO, i tapped on the lever handle itself to see if it would unstick, but with no luck AND DIDNT WANT TO FORCE THAT EITHER!! So here I am online looking for answers again!!

Seat sloped too far forward


You need to be sitting in the chair and the middle lever is the one which releases and secures the angle. I find the adjustment is easier if you release the backrest lever, the third lever to the rear, lean back in the chair which will raise the front seating cushion while moving the backrest back. Using you feet on the floor push back in the chair until the seat feels better. When it is at an angle you like, push the middle lever down to lock the seat in place. Then adjust the backrest with the third lever.

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.

Need to know how to change the agle on the blade for a protech 10 in table saw


Hi Ron,

You didn't give your model.

Protech is out of business so I could not find a user's guide for you.

The knob on the front that you use to raise and lower the blade also adjusts the angle. Depending on your saw, normally the knob releases from raise/lower mode to angle adjustment by either pulling the knob out and moving it or by pushing a lever to release it and then moving the knob.

Hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate a 4 thumbs up. Thanks,

Handie Andie

Which bolts do i loosen to adjust the 45% angle of my blade? Ive already squared up my blade by using a square and laid it down on the deck and squared the back rail like that> but how do i square...


To adjust the bevel, (blade angle), loosen the black lever at the back of the unit, tilt the blade housing using the handle (this may require a fair bit of force) until the arrow on the scale is at 45 degrees then tighten the black lever.

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.

Adapter ring cover problem


Maybe the adapter ring release button is stuck after you pushed it in to release the cover. Try giving it a good flicking until you are sure it has popped out.
