I have a Porter Cable biscuit jointer, model 527 and I'm an amateur woodworker, NOT a mechanic. I can't locate my owner's manual on this tool and have the smaller blade in the tool currently. ...


Model 557 is shipped with a 4" diameter blade installed. This blade is used
for all operations except for the "FF" biscuit. The "FF" biscuit requires that
the 2" blade (furnished with the tool), be installed as follows:
DISCONNECT TOOL FROM POWER SOURCE.
1. Loosen four blade cover retaining screws (A) Fig. 10, and remove blade
cover.
2. Depress and hold spindle lock button (B) Fig. 11, while rotating blade by
hand until spindle lock engages.
3. Continue to hold spindle lock button while using the 5/32" hex wrench
(furnished with tool), to remove blade retaining bolt and flange, (by
rotating counterclockwise).
4. Remove blade and store in a safe place for future use.
5. Place 2" diameter blade (furnished with tool), onto blade mounting
flange (orient with teeth facing in same direction as directional arrow
cast in housing, see Fig. 14).
6. Position blade retaining flange (flat side out), to spindle, insert blade bolt
and rotate clockwise until hand-tight.
7. Depress and hold spindle lock button (B) Fig. 11, while rotating blade by
hand until spindle lock engages.

8. Continue to hold spindle lock button while using the hex wrench
(furnished with tool), to tighten blade retaining bolt securely, (by rotating
clockwise).
9. Rotate the "quick set" depth adjusting turret (A) Fig. 12, to the "FF"
position.
10. Lift safety lever (A) Fig. 13, fully retract the plunge mechanism, and
reposition the safety lever as shown in Fig. 14. Slowly release pressure
on plunge mechanism.
11. Reposition blade cover plate to tool, and secure in place with the four
retaining screws (removed in step 1).
DO NOT OPERATE TOOL WITHOUT BLADE COVER INSTALLED

How to change a mitre saw blade


When changing the blade on your mitre saw the first step is to unplug the tool for safety reasons. DO NOT disassembly the safety cover, there is a bolt on the housing that when loosened allows the cover to be moved away from the blade to expose the spindle bolt. After moving the ASSEMBLY away from the blade turn the blade by hand slowly while pushing on the spindle lock to stop rotation. Loosen the blade bolt (usually left hand thread) and place the parts in the order removed, e.g. blade bolt outer flange, blade spacer if used. Reinstall blade noting the rotation of the teeth and replace parts in reverse order. After installation check for rotation by carefully turning the blade by hand and replace safety cover to its original position and tighten bolt.

How do I assemble the blade guard for my Makita Miter Saw Model LS1030? I accidentally disassembled the guard it when changing to a new saw blade. I cant figure out how to get the tension spring back in...


lay the spring into the plastic safety cover, you will see a catch for one portion of the spring, the cover plate goes over it and there is a tab on it to catch the loose end and then the center plate which screws on to hold everything in place, check by turning the plate that holds it onto the saw for free movement. You can go to makitausa.com and in the header area on the right type in your model number ls1030n and you can download or look at a breakdown to see what I am talking about. Let me know if you need more assistance, just found your question.

before adjusting spring pressure check the two screws either side of the hinge *** make sure they are tight and also check to see if this component has pulled away from the body.

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

Panosonic NN-S525BF Latch Spring Broken


You have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the previously hidden screws you need to remove.

Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) that demonstrates how it's done.

In most cases, the spring mount on the inner door panel breaks off, and while the ideal way to fix it is to replace that whole panel, the time, cost and labor are considerable.

It's usually easier and cheaper and just as effective to use epoxy and some kind of hardware to fashion a new spring mount.

Or if there is enough material to drill a hole for the spring, do that, install the spring, then add a dab of epoxy to cover the bottom loop of the spring where it goes through the hole you drilled.

Let the epoxy dry overnight before you close the door or use the oven.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
