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.

I have a mastercraft mitre saw. The blade blocks midway when I am


The picture I could get only shows one side. From my experience, these guards operate using leverage, where a little motion results in a lot of movement to the guard. That means a little damage or wear in the linkage can make a big difference. A bushing may have shattered, or a pivot hole may be worn out. Reviews of this machine mention dust not going into the bag. Make sure dust is not jamming the guard works. Take care, having to move a guard while the blade is spinning is scary.

I have a 10"DELTA Miter Saw and need to change blade. Please describe how to remove and replace blade. Thanks


Without a model number I cant look for this saw, but if it is like the other mitre saws that I work on, the lower guard should have a bolt holding it in place, loosen the bolt so you can move the guard and the blade bolt is usually LH thread, on the backside of the gearcase by the blade there should be a spindle lock, rotate blade until it locks and then remove bolt. If your saw is different please give me the model number and I will pull up a schematic and look at it.
