Have you tried blowing out the mechanism with a compressed air nozzle? Frequently this friction is caused not by the bearing itself but instead by debris, sawdust, etc. built up inside the base of the saw. I'd give it a good cleaning to begin with.
If that doesn't work, try applying bearing lubricant directly to the bearing races.Use an extension straw if needed so you can get to them, as this is designed to penetrate where even the reliable old wd40 may not reach. You can find this a specialty woodworking stores, as well as some well-equiped home centers.
Let us know if this works, or you've already solved the problem...

Slide mechanism is stiff


linear bearing problem
clean them with brake cleaner and compressed air
the balls should roll freely in the grooves inside bearings
push balls into the slots with compressed air to remove the dirt and then a little bit of oil and it should work.

I changed the blade on my 10" Bosch miter saw this morning. First time and it was a bit challenging to release the screw when the blade was freely moving. Maybe there would have been a way to freeze...


see my other post. Also there is a locking mechanism to stop the blade rotation when removing it. It should be around the gearcase on the back side of the tool away from the blade.

My 10" Bosch miter saw


I would remove the blade and try the saw again, there is a possibility that you might have gotten a flange on incorrectly or left the spacer out.

Blade stops in middle of cut, slipping motor rpm is un changed. 10" compound sliding Bosch miter saw


Going on the information aas I read it, the blade is slipping, meaning that it is not tightened enough or a spacer in the hole in the blade is too thick. Make sure that the wall plug is pulled out before attempting any work on the blade.

My saw is really stiff when you try to change the angle .I oiled it but this didn't help. I would like to know how to take it apart but I am un sure how to do it and what is in the boxed off area...


Exploded diagram with parts list for LS1016 10" Dual Slide Compound miter saw is here.

Owner's manual is here. If these aren't quite what you need, you can view other models of Makita miter saws, here.

One thing to bear in mind. There's a miter angle lock and a slide lock on the bottom front of the saw. If you don't have the miter angle lock loose enough, it will be difficult to turn the saw.
