Do you know if this screwgun will accept square head autofeed screws. Also can I use other bradnd screws than makita?


There is an accessory for a #2 square drive bit part number 784647-5 which you should be able to but at any store that sells Makita items. Also I would think (but am not certain) that any quality autofeed screws as long at the collation is the same should work.

Promblem with Makita 1013 ajusting blade to cut square


Just found your problem, what you need to do it unplug tool and get a good square. Set the blade at 0deg. and then put the square on the left side of the blade to check it. If it is out of square you would need to loosen the fence bolts (13MM) and adjust the fence, snug bolts on the left side and move your square to the right and recheck and then snug the bolts there, I always recheck the fence to ensure it is square and not moved before tightening the bolts fully. If the head is out there are bolts on the pivot that need to be adjusted and again recheck. If you go to Makitausa.com you can download an owners manual with instructions on what to do. Let me know if you still have problems.

I'm trying to change the blade on a Makita compound saw - the LS 1220


I had the blade changed but it was going "in and out" in a rhythmic fashion and I couldn't figure out why. I finally realized I had installed it BACKWARDS - the teeth were facing the wrong way. I might have realized this sooner but I hadn't tried to cut anything - the noise and visual was so alarming that I just shut it off (fortunately).

Blade popping off front wheel


Is the axle tight? Has the tool been dropped to warp the frame? But a quick fix if everything else is OK is to loosen up the axle and put a THIN metal shim on the backside of the axle and then tightening it back down.
