Question about Makita Saws
I have dismantled the saw and the turn base is still connected to the base but I can't see how to separate them. I have removed the screw which goes through the turn base into the base. Swivel point in base turns with turn base.
If you have removed the kerf boards and the center bolt the saw will lift straight off the turn base. It is possible the aluminum is deformed a little, but it will pull straight up and off if that bolt is out

Hi, Thanks for getting back to me, sorry for not making it clear but it was a 2 part question. I have a LS1011N and assumed it would have an electric blade brake like mine. When the bearings are bad it doesn't take long to also wear out the brushes so the electric brake not working full time is a symptom of that failure. Since yours doesn't have a brake then you are right in half of your guess of the gears the other half would be bearings. The only way I know to tell with the thing still assembled is to hold a screwdriver to the rear of the motor case and put your ear on the handle and run the saw and listen for the sand like sound of a bad bearing. If you don't hear anything like that it has to be worn gears and for that you have to look. Good Luck, this should Fixya!

I have went to 3 different sites and cannot find the model number listed on them, I did look at a Ryobi saw and they indicate it is an assembly. but before I did that I would try and removing the gear from the spindle. It is possible that when it spun it put a burr in the parts and you would have to use a little extra effort to remove them I would suggest going to a repair shop and having them press them apart and see what you canfind that way. Sorry I couldn't find more for you

unscrew the handle in the front to change, also I would recommend going to Makitatools.com and typing on your model number to download a users manual for this tool, it would be helpful to get the most out of it.

if you removed the handle from the rod you would need to put a pair of pliers on it gently and remove it. or if you turn it upside down and remove the tube from sliding mechanism you can grip the rod from there and unscrew
