Question about Makita 10" Dual Bevel Sliding Compound Miter Saw
Recovered an compound saw and took apart. The grease is yellowish and dark brown in color. Maybe some water got in so I want to replace gear lubricant to prevent any damage. There is no damage yet and the saw does work. I am refurbishing it.
SOURCE: Table Saw blade
Did you remove the center plate? It has to come out before you can remove the blade. Also make sure that the saw is unplugged before you go any further. If you still have questions contact me and I will do what I can. Also if you would like you can download a schematic of this tool at Makitatools.com just type in your model and look at the schematic. Good luck

The only obvious problem is that a saw purchased in USA will have a 110 volt motor. Mains voltage in Australia is 220, so you would need to purchase a transformer in Australia to step the voltage down to 110.

there is a stop underneath the base that should put pressure on the table to lock into any position. I would unplug tool and turn over gently and look at the condition of the threaded rod which pushes the stop and the bracket that holds it. The stop itself could be worn or the rod might not be putting enough pressure on it. Also look at the cam for the slide to make sure the tube is not stuck inside it from applying too much pressure on it. You can remove it and "squeeze shut some and then I would reverse it" If the black knob has come loose and the hex nut has backed off the rod might not be long enough to hold the stop. You can go to Makitatools.com and download a breakdown to see what I am talking about. Let me know if you need more help.
