SOURCE: I took the guard off the 10" Makita Mitre saw (spring loaded)!

Oh, you got it off. I bet you can put it back on again.
It's much easier if you take the blade off first. Then you'll be able to reach inside when you need to. Be patient, don't force it, and make sure when you get the spring reconnected properly that the guard moves freely out of the way when you chop, and returns when you raise the saw back up.
It's a bit of a trick, but I bet you can manage it..It's been awhile, but it seems to me there's a way to get the bolt started before you engage the tension on the spring...I'd have to have it in my hands to say exactly.
Here's a link to the exploded parts view at the Makita site, just in case. And it might help to have an extra pair of hands, or a piece of duct tape to hold the guard in place when you go to put the blade back on.

SOURCE: can't get the handle of a mastercraft compound mitre saw to open

Hi, If you look on the left side of the saw near where you see that it pivots to go up and down. You will see some type of knob that you can pull out...you will need to push down on the saw handle to allow this to happen.
Hope this helps, RSMITH972278 P.S. PLEASE RATE MY ASSISTANCE

SOURCE: Mastercraft Maximum Compound Mitre Saw

Mastercraft's help line is 1-800-689-9928. However this saw is no longer in production and parts are available only until stock is depleted. It was supplied by an european company called WMH Tool Group that apparently doesn't supply CTC any longer.

Guard spring replace

springs are available from the manufacture spares places or from a hardware store. Any spring of the same size and length will do the job.

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.

Concept MS100 mitre saw blade guard dillema.

I have changed the blade a few times, There is no need to remove the spring, etc. All you do is remove the bolt holding the guard and rotate it counter clockwise and it exposes the blade.
I am looking for parts for this saw. Anyone know where to get them?

I have a Makita 10 inch compond mitre saw. My owners manual has been lost and I need the tables that show what degree to set the mitre and bevel for various degrees.

You can get it at Makita.com, type in yr modal number in the search bar, download a parts breakdown or a manual, if not u can order a new sticker from makita.
