Question about Makita 10" Dual Bevel Sliding Compound Miter Saw

Concept MS100 mitre saw blade guard dillema.

Hello, I have a Concept MS100 mitre saw. I recently replaced the blade and I am having trouble figuring out how to put the blade guard back. The spring is in the right place on the guard itself but I cannot figure out how to make it do any work. I am sure it has something to do with the bent cut-out piece on the metal plate that covers the axle; the spring is suppose to push off that or be pulled by it I think. I do not have a manual, nor have I been able to find one online. If you know something let me know please. Thank you.

I have changed the blade a few times, There is no need to remove the spring, etc. All you do is remove the bolt holding the guard and rotate it counter clockwise and it exposes the blade.
I am looking for parts for this saw. Anyone know where to get them?

Replacing blade guard on a 1700W sliding mitre saw


There is an upper (fixed) blade guard and a lower (moving) blade guard which has the added complication of being connected to a linkage or mechanism to swivel the guard away from the workpiece as it approaches the cut.

Mostly careful inspection, once the blade has been removed, will show removal of the guards to be a faily intuitive process. It is inevitable some makes of saw will be more complex and in the absence of official detailed instructions, it will mean a process of removing clips and screws until the part falls off and then remembering what you did so you can put it back together with no parts left over.

Where do I get a bushing for the guard on a 10 inch mcculloch mitre saw


You probably mean a Milwaukee mitre saw. McCulloch does not make a mitre saw. Go to eReplacementparts.com and enter your make and model number. If they don't have it, its probably not available anywhere. You'll have to go to a machine shop instead. Look it the yellow pages for "Machine Shop".

HOW DO I CHANGE THE BLADE ON A 36-070C MITRE SAW


Not sure about the Delta. I've had both a Craftsman and a Dewalt. On both of those, the pivoting plastic guard pivots on a plate on the side of the metal guard. The plate isnt easy to see. You rotate the plastic guard all the way open and you see the edge of the plate held in place by a screw. Remove the screw and the plastic guard and the hub along with the plate it's mounted on can lift up an half inch or so--far enough to get the blade screw off the arbor.
There's a push button somewhere that locks the blade from turning so you can turn the screw in the center of the arbor with a wrench.

Need to replace the blade on the saw. mastercraft 10" mitre saw. i've managed to loosen it but can't seem to get the blade out of the machine to put the new one in. what am i not doing?


Lifting the safety guard maybe? The blade will not pass through the opening with the guard down (it's one of the purposes of the guard).

I took the guard off the 10" Makita Mitre saw (spring loaded)!


Oh, you got it off. I bet you can put it back on again.
It's much easier if you take the blade off first. Then you'll be able to reach inside when you need to. Be patient, don't force it, and make sure when you get the spring reconnected properly that the guard moves freely out of the way when you chop, and returns when you raise the saw back up.
It's a bit of a trick, but I bet you can manage it..It's been awhile, but it seems to me there's a way to get the bolt started before you engage the tension on the spring...I'd have to have it in my hands to say exactly.
Here's a link to the exploded parts view at the Makita site, just in case. And it might help to have an extra pair of hands, or a piece of duct tape to hold the guard in place when you go to put the blade back on.
