Question about Makita Saws
You say it spins freely but is it smooth. If not it could be one or both of the bearings the armature spins on. More likely than not you have one or more fan blades broke or missing. Not much weight by themselves but at the speed these things spin the more blades broke off, the worse the vibration. You have to romove the brushes, take off the gear housing and remove the armature to check both the bearings and fan.
