Question about Makita Saws
I used a power saw every day for years. Makita is a good brand. We used Milwalkee and Craftsman. My Milwalkee, I used the side of my hand to hit it into place >> I didn't hit it real hard, but the angle setting should move a bit sluggish so you can get to the correct cutting degree using one hand while holding saw in other hand. If the angle setting is floppy loose, you have to use two hands to get it set.
The whole guide assembly should come loose from the motor part. Take it apart. Remove the dust & dirt. Spray a bit of WD-40. It should be good to go. Remember the saw is your friend so cut straight and fast.
Up-vote if this helped. Thanks for the feedback.
