Brake is controlled by the switch. There are two switches that can be used on your saw. One switch has only on/off, the other switch is on/on. On motor when pressed and on brake when released. The switch with brake does not last very long because the braking action is really just shorting motor circuit (short circuit). All motors can produce electricity. The brake action occurs by shorting motor thru switch. Electricity that motor is producing while turning forces armature to stop. Other brands use a resister in breaking system to absorbe current help switch last longer. Parts are available at www.toolpartsdirect.com Good luck

The blade brake is not working on my miter saw.


Clean your saw ! Use your air compressor with an attachment to get back in the nooks & crannies, blowing all the caked up sawdust out.

Where is the blade brake on the miter saw


The brake on electric motor driven tools is the field & armature. When running the switch provides power to both sides/poles of the field through the brushes and armature. When you release the switch half of the field is powered pulling the armature to a stop. If your bladed continues to spin when the switch is released, you need to replace the switch. The Ridgid part number for the proper switch is 503317000.

The laser stopped working on Hitachi 12'dual compund mitr saw,are there batteries that can be replaced or does the unit need to go to a tech? The laser only worked for a month and the saw is only 3 months...


The laser modules in saws are usually powered by induction from the spinning saw blade. Since your saw is only three months old hopefully you either registered it with Hitachi when you bought it or you still have your receipt as this type of failure would be covered under warranty. Call Hitachi, they may send the part to you if you are comfortable with doing the repair or they will tell you where the nearest Authorized Service Center is for warranty work. Hitachi's number is: 800-706-7337 or 770-925-1774.

I have an older model black and decker miter saw. How do you change the blade? I can't seem to stop the motor shaft from turning in order to loosen the nut to remove the blade?


Hi, you need to look thoroughly at the casing of the electric motor. Somewhere between the motor and the gearbox is the brake which must be depressed in order to stop the motor from turning. If for some reason you cannot find this brake, use a pair of vise grips and clamp down on the inside of the blade and turn it until it stops. Now you can unbolt you blade. P.S. make sure you know if the thread is reverse or not! Good luck.

The saw blade is 1/16" out of parallel with the miter groove in the table. How do I adjust the blade/motor? Thanks


To be that far out of alignment, there must be something loose. Unplug it, turn it over and look for what it is. If you have a drop-indicator gage, and you can clamp it to your sliding miter gage, it will help you get the alignment dead-on. Slide the miter gage toward the front and back in the slot with the tip of the indicator in contact with the blade. Have the the blade at fully elevated postion. If you don't have such a gage, you can clamp a piece of wood to the miter gage to get pretty close. You will probably have to do this with the saw laying on it's backside so that the top and the bottom are accessible at the same time.

Blade brake not working 1/2 the time on Hitachi C15FB chop saw


d70d03f.jpg3f82e5b.jpg38ca90b.jpg4367374.jpg063ef2e.jpg1add57c.jpg98eea3c.jpg The first picture is the only one I could find of your saw.
All saws are fitted with carbon bushes that contact the armature of the electric motor.
In time the carbon which conducts the electricity wears down, as they disintegrate there are particles of broken carbon connect with the armature giving an intermittent burst of power, eventually the bushes no longer contact the armature and the saw does not work at all.
The next photos show the approximate position of the cover to access the bushes, there is one one each side of the housing.

They usually unscrew and expose the spring plate the bush is mounted on, gently pull this out.
As you can see the bush is worn in a concave shape, and that the wide side is breaking up.
If this is your problem then take the bush and model number of your saw to a supplier or spare parts shop or the hitachi web site to get replacements.
Hope this helps.
If anyone finds this information helpful please tell fixya
Cheers
Les
