Hello. The laser guide will generate a red colored line on the work surface when the saw blade is spinning above 500 rpm. The
red laser line will appear as a broken line on the workpiece
when the blade assembly is in the uppermost position and
the motor switch is activated. This broken line will let you see
your mark and your laser guide line at the same time, and will
assist you in lining up your mark for more accurate cutting of
the workpiece.

Here is a link to all of the manuals, just find your saw and download the manual. Enjoy.

Where to put batteries for laser on a tooltec 1800w mitre saw part no.273102 ?

I am not at all familair with your particular saw, but I have seen and used many other miter saws with lasers, so I hope this will help:

Many saws install the whole laser assembly right at the center of the saw blade itself. If you look, very likely you will see two pretty beefy washers, one on either side of the blade, right where the motor's arbor passes through the center hole of the blade. One of these washers is the laser itself. complete with batteries. Please unplug the power and take a close look; I'll bet you will be able to spot the lens of the laser.

If your laser turns on automatically when you spin the blade, this is almost certainly where the laser is. In the beefy washer is the light source, a couple of button batteries, and a centrifugal switch that closes when the balde sipns fast enough, thereby turning on the laser. When you release the trigger, the saw slows and stops, the switch is no long held closed by centrifugal force, and the light goes out. Pretty slick!

To replace the batteries, unplug the power and remove the blade according the instructions in your manual. Be aware that many saw blade arbors and their retaining nuts are LEFT HAND THREADED.

Look closely at the washer to see how it comes apart, and take the batteries with you when you shop for repalcements.

If you don't have the manual, speak up, and together we go over blade removal/blade changing, but it is pretty straightforward. Good luck.

Looking for a site to download a manual

I understand that Denali is made by GMC. Here is the website for GMC miter saw manuals.
See if the 10" miter saw with "redeye (R)" is the same as yours.

I purchased the Bosch saw blade on Ebay

If the arbors the same and you're running with in the RPM rating, it will be fine. But ALWAYS wear your safety glasses.
