SOURCE: I'm trying to change the blade on a Makita

I had the blade changed but it was going "in and out" in a rhythmic fashion and I couldn't figure out why. I finally realized I had installed it BACKWARDS - the teeth were facing the wrong way. I might have realized this sooner but I hadn't tried to cut anything - the noise and visual was so alarming that I just shut it off (fortunately).

SOURCE: how do I install the spring after changing the

what spring? do you mean the one in the guard? if so you don;t have to remove it to change the blade, give me the exact model number or you can go to makitatools.com and download a breakdown that shows the reassembly of the guard, it is not that hard, and also you can download an owners manual that shows the proper blade replacement procedure.

SOURCE: How do I assemble the blade guard for my Makita

lay the spring into the plastic safety cover, you will see a catch for one portion of the spring, the cover plate goes over it and there is a tab on it to catch the loose end and then the center plate which screws on to hold everything in place, check by turning the plate that holds it onto the saw for free movement. You can go to makitausa.com and in the header area on the right type in your model number ls1030n and you can download or look at a breakdown to see what I am talking about. Let me know if you need more assistance, just found your question.

SOURCE: How do I replace the blade guard on my 10" Makita

If you want to replace the plastic cover there is a screw towards the front of the saw that must be removed and then the bolt at the back loosened and the guard will pull off. If you need more info get back to me with the other questions and I will try and help

Hello. The guard does not have to be taken apart when changing the blade. Here is the link to the Parts Breakdown of your unit. It should show what you need to know to reassemble your saw. If not, use the contact information to speak to customer service and they should be able to assist. If this is helpful, please rate it a four-thumbs up, Thank You.

HOW TO CHANGE BLADE


Do you have the wrench that came with the saw? It should be slid in the back somewhere, there is a lock on the top that you hold the motor locked with, unplug the saw, turn the nut on the blade, start the saw down and grab the guard with your thumb to hold it and then lift it up all the way to slip the blade out. You should be all set.

I have an old Makita table saw and need to change the blade. It is a circular saw mounted under a table. I can't find the stop that allows me to unscrew the fixing nut on the blade. It is Makita Model...


This link will take you to Makita and display an owners manual where you will see that the saw should have came with the necessary wrenches to change the blade. If they are not available I have used two different methods. Take care with either, that blade is just waiting to getcha. 1. I have clamped a pair of vice grips directly on the blade and let them stop against the saw top to keep the blade from turning or 2. I have levered a peice of soft wood against the blade to keep it from turning. According to Makita the thread is righthand, so you can apply the righty tighty lefty loosey rule to determine which way to loosen the nut. Good luck I hope this helps.

Blade acts unusual


Hi, Blade wobble at high speed can be very dangerous! The saw at the right ( wrong) wobble can destroy itself.There are a few things that can cause it, And you have to check them as best you can before you power it back up. Check the blade, you can lay two blades together and check for gaps anywhere. Check that the hub and spindle are flat where the blade goes. (No lock washers) Also check the spindle for side to side movement, there shouldn't be any. Turn the spindle by hand and see if you feel any grit or sandy type feeling, you shouldn't. Lastly, if you don't find anything, try a new blade of a different type, and if it wobbles again, check and see if you have any warranty left and even if you don't you should contact Makita about it.
About the best I can do from long distance. Let me know what you find, Please.
