I have a Makita LS1013 Dual Slide Compound 10-inch Miter Saw. It was working one minute and next no power!

How did you measure the power at the switch Live to N ? that would rule out a break in the cable all that is left is Armature ,Stator coil and wiring to both.

How to reassemble helical gear onto spindle with woodruff key

You need an arbor press to do that. If you have an auto mechanic you normally use they should have one and would probably be glad to do it for you.

Makita miter saw wontr turn on

make sure that your outlet is hot, once verfied that you have power going to the plug of the saw cord, verify that you dont have any breaks in the cord itself. once verified no issues with cord you can check for power at the switch, if there is power at the switch but not coming on, probably bad switch.

The cutting disc on my makita 5806b spins anti clockwise causing damage if i cut laminate from the top and i need it to spin clockwise

You could turn the laminate over. The proper tools would be either a router with an edge bit ( what I and most cabinet makers use ) or a low tech utility knife (carpet knife ) yep just a razor knife - really it works. Don

The only way to turn the saw off is to unplug it. Ryobi 10 inch sliding compound miter saw model TSS100L

You may be able to take the handle apart and, using compressed air, blow any sawdust out of the handle and switch but most likely you'll have to replace the switch.

The spring that holds up the saw came out of place

I found this diagram online, as I only have access to the full Makita (UK) tech data at work. The spring, pin and dish look like they sit on the rear part of the table/base and go up inside the back part of the guard housing. I can't really tell from this diagram how it is all fixed in place, but you should be able to see how and where it goes together, and hopefully be able to suss it out from there.

When changing brushes on the LS 1013, should I be

No , solvent could remove the insulation. lightly dress the armature only where the brushes contact the copper contacts with 600 grit sand paper. It should be shiny. By the book you should only use a pencil eraser to clean the contacts so if you use sand paper be very careful or you could cause irreparable damage. Then be sure to wipe the filings away with a soft cloth, a little rubbing alcohol is helpful.

Change blade Makita LS1030 10-Inch Compound Miter saw

There is an 8mm bolt on the front of the guard. Loosen/remove this and the central guard mount will drop slightly. Behind the metal guard is a slide lock for the blade spindle. Push the lock bar and turn the blade untill it catches and is held solid. Then remove the blade fixing bolt and bobs your uncle. Alternativly, with all mitre saws, you can just pop an old bit of wood on the work base and then use the spannrer/allen key supplied to turn the blade so it bites into the wood as if you are trying to cut it. This will hold the blade steady and you will also be turning the bolt in the right direction.

Replace switch on chop saw

unplug tool, remove the top of the handle assembly, either take a picture or write yourself a wiring schematic before removing anything, I would suggest taking a photo so you know where the safety device goes and the wiring, loosen the screws and remove and replace the switch.

Makita LS1221, started heavy sparking

you need to make sure the brushes move freely in the tubes and if they do I would suspect the armature is bad. LOOK for discoloration in the commutator thru the brush tubes.
