When cutting 18mm ply wood

Unfortunately that is just to thick of material to cut with a jig saw blade. Plywood is made up of several layers and your blade is trying to follow the grain on one of them. You can try a metal blade and high motor speed low travel rate, but it will quickly heat up the blade and warp it making your problem worse if you don't stop often. If you are trying to make straight and curved cuts, I have the best luck with a rotary cutter such as the roto zip, but plywood easily snaps the bits.

Sparking carbon brush hr5001c

Brushes can have very small, blue sparks coming off them and be OK. If it's bad enough that you can hear, smell or see excessive sparking it can be caused by: a) The brushes are worn down or the springs are collapsed and the brushes are not making good contact with the armature. b) The armature contact (commutator) is damaged or there is a short in the armature windings. Replace the brushes or armature as needed. I can't give part numbers as your problem is listed in cut-off saws and grinders but your model number is for a rotary hammer.

Makita LS1013 110V feels underpowered. What could have caused this? Brushes are barely worn.

How underpowered? running at half speed? If so check the wiring in the 110v plug. I have seen saws come into the workshop where 1 of the wires is connected to earth pin this results in 55v being fed to saw hence 1/2 speed. Is there heavy arcing at the commutator? if yes armature probably blown. If not still worth examining armature for discolouration, examine field coils at same time if everything seems ok then a possibility is the controller. You could try by passing the controller and if saw seems to run better then you know you need a new controller. It is located at the back of the motor. If you are not sure about electrics do not try this you may electrocute your self or blow the controller.

Cannot get blade off

try using a pair of mole grips on the screw. If not use a fine cutting disc to put a slot in it or just grind the head off and after removing the blade use the grips to unscrew the bolt from the spindle.

Makita mls 100

It sounds like the switch may be bad. Sometimes a switch will trigger when you just touch it, but at full pull it's worn out. You can check it by putting an ohm meter on the plug and pulling the switch.
