How to remove turn base from base on a Makita LS1011 Slide Compound Saw?

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

SOURCE: Makita LS1011- when power is turned off there is a

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!

SOURCE: Compound Mitre Saw Motor turning, spindle isnt.

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

Saw stopped working. changed brushes. still not working.just dead.blade turns ok.not even a click

These are notorious for burning out armatures.
The replacement process is pretty involved, I would not attempt unless you are comfortable.
Remove the brushes
Remove the 3 Screws hold the motor assy to the saw
Remove the screws holding the motor housing together.
Separate the housing and you should be able to see right away if the armature is burnt (many times the windings actually blow apart)

Often when the armature burns out it also melts the brush holder assy - I would recommend replacing it as well.
If the armature appears fine then I would lean toward the switch. Makita BSS611 18V LXT Lithium Ion 6 1 2 Circular Saw Parts

INSTRUCTION to dismantle toaster

Hi benbecula. I cannot find a repair manual for you. The normal way top dismantle a toaster is to remove the screws beneath the toaster. They are usually self tapping screws that hold the polished stainless steel cover to the base. The knobs on the front of the toaster have to be prised off so the cover comes off. Make sure the toaster is removed from the power before attempting and examination or repair.
Hope this helps,

Replacing base plate

The base plate for your saw is held in place by a screw that goes through a plate that fits into the raised part of the baseplate with the elongated holes. The nut that holds the screw in place is sandwiched in the base of the two housing halves. The raised part of the base plate and elongated holes are what allow you to tilt the base plate.

Reciprocating saw armature removal

usually there is a screw in the diaphragm to hold that assembly tight. You need to remove the brushes first and you might need to GENTLY pry the diaphragm from the motor housing. Then using a soft blow hammer tap the armature out of the plate. I would recommend replacing the bearings and brushes when doing the armature. Let me know if you need more assistance.

The lamp just stopped working. Have had for approx 2 year only used 20 times went to turn it on and nothing happened. Replaced bulb and plugged into a new outlet still nothing. Is this a common problem?...

You can re-wire it yourself. Here is how:
Disconnect the lamp from the wall outlet. Then use a knife to pry off the protective covering to give access to the wiring in the base of the lamp.
Use a wrench, or pliers to remove the nut that secures the long, threaded tube to the base of the lamp. Most lamps will contain a lead weight; remove this from the base as well.
Pull the tube part way out from the top of the lamp. Unscrew the socket from the tube by turning it counterclockwise.
If you are renewing a cord, cut the old cord to make dismantling easier.
Remove the outer shell of the switch socket by pressing at the base and pulling it straight up. Slide off the cardboard insulating sleeve to expose the socket's screw terminals.
Unscrew the two wires on the terminals. If you are replacing the switch or socket, fit the wires onto the new unit in the same way they were attached to the old one.
If feeding a new wire and plug, feed the wire through the lamp base and threaded tube. Connect the wires to the switch or socket. Reassemble lamp in same order that it was dismantled
Some lamp models have a harp which must be removed before further dismantling remove by pressing the two bottom arms together. Some lamps are held by finger nuts.
Some sockets and switches have metal shells which are removed by pressing at their base.

Makita LS1013 Sliding Compound Mitre saw will not lock at chosen positions/angles on the turnplate other than the standard stop points. Turning the handle will not lock the turnplate anymore it used to it...

my saw had this exact same problem, here's how i fixed mine.

okay so here's a schematic of the saw

whether you have the exact same issue as my saw, in order to further investigate you need to get to the mechanism that locks the saw. To do this you need to take the turn base (140) off the foot base (156) . its really not too hard, just a little awkward setting the saw in different positions to remove the various parts.

Specifically on mine I had issues with the threaded rod (118) not screwing into the stopper holder (135). You'll see this part when you flip the saw upside down.

So to remove the turn base(140) from the foot base (156)....

Remove the kerf board (108) and under you will see a big bolt, go ahead and remove this. Then there are 4 more bolts which take off the guide rule (117), this what your piece of wood is put against when making the cut. Once these 5 bolts are out, the turn base can now be separated from the feet. Now you'll have a better view of the mechanics and see what is or isn't happening when you screw the handle to lock the miter position.

Part 136 (turn stopper) is what actually wedges to a pocket in the foot base which makes the saw lock. when you screw in the handle it actuates this part. make sure that is happening. I had to take out the threaded rod (118) and tighten it on a vice and work the stopper holder (135) deeper onto the threaded rod. use WD 40 to help it a long. You'll need to take off some other various parts to to get the rod out. this will be obvious once you have everything turned over.

Now that everything is apart you can blast it with some WD40 or what you think is best here. I used lithium grease. You'll see its especially important to lube up the pivot post that the 2 bases center on, (where the big bolt under the kerf board goes). also the slide plates (153) may be rusty, they'll fall out when you separate the 2 base plates. clean those up and spray them and anything else which will help with smooth movement.

the only important item to check once everything is put back together is the guide rule. this can be adjusted slightly in or out of square. Get a nice framing square and make sure your locked in at 90 (or actually 0 degrees on the saw) Sliding the saw the full distance of the cut on the square is ideal and maybe this was a good time to recalibrate that movement anyway.

hope this works.

Handle on top oven is disconnected

On the plastic part if pieces large enough:no fast cyano-acrylate superglue to be used. use 2 component epoxy based glue. super glue can't restit water and temperature and really never works. Get to the screw by dismantling the door looking at how it is screwed to gether. Usually from the inside.
Top is you can order an original replacement. Sometimes by local handu man store. If the construction is such that was screwed in from outside then it becomes a driling out procedure with a small HSS drill. Try to center point that screw a pit that the drill wont run away. Another trick is trying to make a square groove and screw it out. This is almost impossible if nothing sticks out. If sticking out you can use carefully thin metal saw or catch it with right type pliers. Trying to drill from the inside is a good way because driill goes right direxction to screw it out or the screw is sticking out far enough to use pliers for turning pack out or the saw method to make a groof for screwdriver. Wenn all fails:b drill all out, use larger screw. If needed thread it. If no success at all, check back

Rs20 bosch case falling apart

If you loosen the screws at the end of the saw that hold the boot on you can carefully snip the the rubber around the holes. This will alow you to remove the boot without dismantling the front of the saw. The boot is glued and they are sometimes difficult to remove.You can carefully take a flat blade screwdriver to peal the boot off and re-use it. Hope this helps
