I'm rebuilding a MAKITA 7301 Concrete Saw is there anyone with experience that could you give me a list of things I might as well change out now or check. I'd like this saw to last a while.

They are a reliable saw. Presumably you are replacing the piston and rings and honing the bore. Strip and clean the carburetor. Replace the spark plug and lead. https://www.google.com/search?q=MAKITA+7301+SAW+full+service ..

I have a Makita LS1013 Dual Slide Compound 10-inch Miter Saw. It was working one minute and next no power!

How did you measure the power at the switch Live to N ? that would rule out a break in the cable all that is left is Armature ,Stator coil and wiring to both.

Hey I just bought the Makita LS1016 and my release button is jammed. The saw works great but the button is stuck in the "on" position which has eliminated a positive stop at 0 degrees when changing t

try a squirt of wd-40 or crc to free up the button. The anti rust spray used in assembly has probably got sticky and is jamming the shaft of the button

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

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

My Makita DSS610 18v cordless circular saw stopped working mid cut. I changed the battery to another, fully charged, one but still nothing. Tried again next day, with both batteries, still nothing.

Hello Derek, it seems that your motor or motor brushes have failed please contact the manufacture about replacing the motor brushes.

Compound miter saw model 2124014 sold by Ace Hardware

Not much available for that vintage saw. The switch might be a possibility from a similar saw. Send images to one of the spares companies. Epoxy resin could fix the handle. https://www.google.com/search?q=Compound+miter+saw+model+2124014 ..

How to replace saw blade and re assemble the blade

Hello. The guard does not have to be taken apart when changing the blade. Here is the link to the Parts Breakdown of your unit. It should show what you need to know to reassemble your saw. If not, use the contact information to speak to customer service and they should be able to assist. If this is helpful, please rate it a four-thumbs up, Thank You.

I have a Makita circular saw that when you try to start it it barely turns and flips the breaker or tries to all the lights dim!! Is there a start compacitor for that saw

All portable power tools including saws and most tradesman type saw benches use the light and powerful series wound brush-type motor that doesn't use a start capacitor. The single phase induction motor that does use a start capacitor is far too bulky and heavy for portable tools but is found in many of the static workshop tools. The powerful brush type motor is electrically very noisy and is almost permanently at the edge of self destructing. Good suppression to prevent radio and tv interference is necessary and this also helps protect the motor but a mains transient or power surge while in use can cause an internal surge destroying the insulation of the windings rendering the motor useless in a millisecond. This could be what happened to your saw though it could equally be an internal short circuit in the power cord or inside the saw and these things must be checked before either writing off the tool or sending it for repair.
