I had just completed this today. It did take me several hours and multiple attempts only to explain the solution in this manner. Frustred yes, but determined to help you. If you were to take the guard off and look at the interior of it with it held against your stomach and the spring housing is against you at "6:00", I placed the spring with the ends pointing downward because it appeared that it was the most logical positioning. Well .. for several hours and with me printing off the owners manual only to not find the answer.. I went back and took a closer look and discovered that there is a way where you can point the springs upward, still in that same general area as before. This is the positioning. To continue, the black washer does get re applied with a phillips screw on the exterior of the guard as you remount the whole thing (I unfortuanately played with it being on the outside / inside and this too was frustrating me. It belongs on the outside. The interior metal flange has a "stopper" / tab on it and as you eventually pull the arm down the tab is pushed by an interior level and when you lift the arm it retracts. I hope all my jabber can help you. PLease contact me again if you get stuck. I still love the saw after 20 plus years.

Ryobi TSS100L blade guard spring


I think what you are refering to is a circlip washer , and can only be
fitted with ( CIRCLIP PLIERS ) do you know any Michanics or Engineers as they are bound to have a set in their toolbox ,on the other hand you
can buy them. What they do is work in the opposit way normal pliers do
when you squees the handles together the jaws open,therefor opening
the (CIRCLIP ) and allowing you to place it over the pin and into the
recess. Hope this has been of some hellp goodluck T.C.

I don't have this particular model in my shop right now but almost all circular saws work like this. From the blade side of the saw, the spring attaches to a hole in the blade guard usually around the two to three o'clock position. With the blade guard correctly positioned on the saw, wrap the spring clockwise around the bottom of the hub and back up the nine o'clock side. There is another hole or tab inside the top of the upper blade guard somewhere around the twelve to two o'clock position. Hook the end of the spring there and test the guard for free movement throughout it's range of motion.

I have a Porter Circular Saw, 18v, Cordless, 6 and a half inch blade. I'm a novice, so I unhooked the wire latchet that held the lower guard on. I figured out how to put the saw blade on, yet I have the...


Remove the battery, take the blade back off and you will see the holes for the torsion spring. what you will have to do is start putting lower guard on but pretenstion the spring so it will fit back into the proper holes, it might be a benefit to remove the small bumper so that you can move the guard more. when installing the blade you don't remove the lower guard just retract it and slide the blade in place. Usually there is a retaining ring to hold the guard in place but I looked at a breakdown and didn't see one. Let me know if you need more assistance before voting please. Thank you

I have changed the blade a few times, There is no need to remove the spring, etc. All you do is remove the bolt holding the guard and rotate it counter clockwise and it exposes the blade.
I am looking for parts for this saw. Anyone know where to get them?

Replacing the blade guard spring


there is a hold in the lower guard for the loop and the other end wraps around the guard slightly and there is a hole in the back of the upper guard. You can go to Milwaukeetool.com and download a breakdown for the tool Also when you have the blade off I would try using compressed air to clean the area and spray some lubricant on the hub to lubricate. The guard should "snap" back when done sawing. Let me know if you need more help

I am missing the part that brings the guard back when you lower the saw blade


I am assuming that you have some type circular saw?
Most popular saws use a spring to return the guard,with the saw unplugged raise the guard and see if the spring is there(you may need to take off the blade) if it is not there,replace with proper spring.one end of the spring will hook onto the fixed 1/2 of the guard the other to the front of the moving guard(consult manual if possible).once this is done insure that the guard mover freely and is not in the way of the blade.Replace the blade in proper direction check guard again for proper travel,make sure everything has been re-tightened .
If the spring is there check for material build-up or debris that is causing
guard not to move,remove blade clean debris or obstruction,replace blade and check for proper operation.Also visually inspect where the moving guard is attached to the saw for any unusual marks or wear this could be a sign that some type of unsafe situation exists,if this happens refer to a pro to fix or buy new never use a saw without a properly working guard,it took 141 stitches to repair my friends leg.

I took the guard off the 10" Makita Mitre saw (spring loaded)!


Oh, you got it off. I bet you can put it back on again.
It's much easier if you take the blade off first. Then you'll be able to reach inside when you need to. Be patient, don't force it, and make sure when you get the spring reconnected properly that the guard moves freely out of the way when you chop, and returns when you raise the saw back up.
It's a bit of a trick, but I bet you can manage it..It's been awhile, but it seems to me there's a way to get the bolt started before you engage the tension on the spring...I'd have to have it in my hands to say exactly.
Here's a link to the exploded parts view at the Makita site, just in case. And it might help to have an extra pair of hands, or a piece of duct tape to hold the guard in place when you go to put the blade back on.
