Question about Makita 10" Miter Saw LS1030N
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.
