This is how to solve the stiff Makita plunge saw easily!!!
I've just carried out the following steps and it's like a new saw.
Clear a table top and grab the following tools:
Philips screw driver
4mm allen key
grease- i used silicone grease
1. Take the base off the saw by removing the 4 x obvious screws.
2. If you look at the saw, you'll see that is pivots on a single pin at the rear. You'll also notice that there is a 4mm allen screw driven into that pin.
3. Remove the 4mm allen screw.
4. Fill the screw hole with grease and drive the 4mm allen screw back in (it'll force grease along the pin internally). Do this 3 or 4 times.
5. Work the mechanism back and forth as if you're plunging the saw- you'll notice that it becomes so much more easy to move.
6. Wipe away the black dirty grease that you have forced out of the pin. Reinsert the 4mm allen screw and tighten
7. refix the base and spring.
8. Job done.
This actually bugged me for ages until i finally decided to have a look and see what the issue was.

    Spent quite a bit of time trying to sort this before I found this solution, worked a treat, bit fiddly getting the grease in but with a bit of patience my saw now returns like new, thanks

    This is best bit of advise ever! I stuggled for ages with WD40 and other penetrating de-greasers, but in the end it was just a case of adding more grease! I got my saw back, yay!

Hi,

Click here for an exploded view of your saw...

I think part 79 is the part you are referring too...

It does not look like it will be too hard to get it placed and everything back together...

Look at the pivot point on the rear of the miter saw for the push/pull locking pin. The pin is there so you can lock the saw in the down position for easier carrying. To unlock the saw, simply pull the locking pin out (Makita calls this the "stopper pin"). Then you can use the saw and easily raise and lower it for cutting.

As you might find it helpful to have, I have included a link from the Makita web site for a free copy of the owners manual that you can print or save for future use and reference. It has some handy info on use and care of your saw.

The guard on my makita chop saw keeps dropping down under the blade and will not return to the correct position unless you pull it up with you hand


Sounds like you have a broken spring, which you may not be able to see.
Type "Makita chop saw" into the search engine of your computer, and a list of dealers should come up for you to call and ask your question of.
God bless your efforts.

My Makita circular power saw works then stops working, then starts again. Why is this happening?


Things to check: With the saw running, safely grab the cord by the boot and pull and twist it around. This is where a break frequently occurs inside the cord and when the saw is held in certain positions the break will either open or close. If the cord's OK, unplug the saw and remove the brush caps and check the brushes. If the brushes are less than 1/4" long or the springs are burnt or broke they won't make good contact with the armature. If the cord & brushes are OK your next recourse is to replace the switch (Makita PN 651172-0).

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.

Depth/Length Problem


A longer stroke depth (e.g., 1-1/4") is best for faster, more aggressive cuts, while a shorter stroke length (e.g., 3/4") is needed for plunge cuts
