I have a Bosch, and I am not really familiar with your model Hitachi. However, I do know that most compound miter saws have a locking pin that clicks in at frequently used settings like 90 and 45. This pin must be released (pulled out) before the bevel can be changed.

SOURCE: The delta universal miter saw stand will not adjust to level posi

Hi, The legs on the stand should have leveling pads on it. at the bottom of each stand legs, there is a hole which the pad goes in. you can adjust the pad by unloosening the top nut. put a level on the saw base and adjust the pad up or down to level your stand.

If this doesn’t work for you, please write back. Thanks,

SOURCE: DW705 Miter saw Spark in motor Compartment

Yes spark in motor compartment is normal. You only need to worry if you see a lot of sparks flying out of the motor compartment! Most power tools will spark inside the motor compartment (particularly if carbon brushes are used).

Bevel and miter could be off... Consult your manual for how to adjust these correctly, but usually the bevel has a 0-degree setting screw or adjustment, and the miter adjustment on the saw is usually done by altering the fence position... Again check your manual for specifics on your saw.

Re: Hitachi C12FDH single bevel compound miter saw. Bevel setting reads 0 degrees but it is not. I'm trying to install baseboards. Every bevel cut angles in from top to bottom about 1/8". How to fix?

Most saws of this type plus many others need checking and if necessary calibrating when delivered and from time-to-time during use.

There are usually adjustable stops and often moveable scales so when checked against known accurate squares and angles suitable adjustments can be made. Sometimes the stops aren't adjustable and metal must be removed by filing or added by bonding a suitable shim.

One point of concern with many saws of the type is the position of the handle is often offset from the centre line of the pivot with the result; the force needed to overcome the resistance of the return spring is also offset and tends to twist the mechanism during the cut - the typical mechanism is not usually strong enough or built with sufficient precision to completely resist the twisting force which often results in a less than accurate cut even though the angle has been accurately set.

Knowing this the user can compensate by holding the handle differently or applying a twisting force in the opposite direction. With practice you will become familiar with the tool...

Clamp Lever - How to loosen and tighten to adjust bevel.

The 8mm bolt head, which is below the "stop plate"--- for olack of a better word-- is only to ALLOW ROOM to complete the swivel of the bevel-- ONCE THE CLAMP LEVER IS LOOSENED!! I neither have been able to loosen the CLAMP LEVER!! There is a large philips screwhead inside the handle of the lever, which I tried to loosen without much luck. I am very afraid to force that... ALSO, i tapped on the lever handle itself to see if it would unstick, but with no luck AND DIDNT WANT TO FORCE THAT EITHER!! So here I am online looking for answers again!!

Is there a way to adjust the set pin to get a true 90 degree bevel?

set the blade at the built in 90 degree lock, now use a square and adjust the fence (usually two bolts visible on top of the fence) to the blade at 90 degrees....there are some shops which offer this service under a "tune-up" or calibration.

Dewalt 12 inch compound sliding miter saw

This saw has locking indexing to set bevels for 52 degree crown molding the other common crown angle is 45 degrees, the bevel setting needs to be other than where the locking indexs are for the 52 degree crown. Problem is that the bevel lock does not securely hold at the bevel angle required. Is their an adjustment to get this lock to hold tighter.

The laser stopped working on Hitachi 12'dual compund mitr saw,are there batteries that can be replaced or does the unit need to go to a tech? The laser only worked for a month and the saw is only 3 months...

The laser modules in saws are usually powered by induction from the spinning saw blade. Since your saw is only three months old hopefully you either registered it with Hitachi when you bought it or you still have your receipt as this type of failure would be covered under warranty. Call Hitachi, they may send the part to you if you are comfortable with doing the repair or they will tell you where the nearest Authorized Service Center is for warranty work. Hitachi's number is: 800-706-7337 or 770-925-1774.

Which bolts do i loosen to adjust the 45% angle of my blade? Ive already squared up my blade by using a square and laid it down on the deck and squared the back rail like that> but how do i square...

To adjust the bevel, (blade angle), loosen the black lever at the back of the unit, tilt the blade housing using the handle (this may require a fair bit of force) until the arrow on the scale is at 45 degrees then tighten the black lever.
