Makita miter saw blade replacement
A circular saw
In a circular saw, the cutting mechanism is a serrated disc. It serves for slitting, although with the help of additional rails, you can unfold the fabric at different angles and get cross and oblique cuts. The quality of the cut is influenced by the type of disc, its diameter, the shape of the teeth and the sharpening angle. The more teeth. the lower the speed, but the quality of the cuts is better. The power of circular saws varies from one to two and a half kilowatts. Some of these tools are very difficult to handle.
What is the Difference Between a Circular Saw and a Saw

Mithras. it is a saw designed for repeated fastening of short lengths. It is a small mechanism with a moving electrical device that descends at different angles and slopes.
The circular saw is a circular hand saw for cutting boards, both lengthwise and crosswise, can be fixed to the machine.
A circular saw is more powerful than a miter saw with a same blade diameter because the miter saw is designed for short cross-cuts and the circular saw is for ripping.
The miter saw speed is almost always around 4500 rpm.
Speed vary from 3000 to 4500 rpm.
The cutting depth of the miter saw, depending on the size of the disc, is from 40 to 130 mm, and the width is from 70 to 363 mm, respectively.
The depth of the saw blade, depending on the size of the blade, is from 40 to 100 mm, and the width of the cut is from 65 to 700 mm, respectively. Another useful feature of the miter saw. you can work like a conventional circular saw, that is, make longitudinal cuts. This saw is called a combination saw.
Due to the competition in the market, the choice of electrical tools is constantly increasing, and are becoming more affordable. Now women are happy to give them to men on February 23rd, or relatives and friends for their birthday. Almost every second household man has his own circular circular saw.
Over time, the circles fail (dull or break), they must be replaced depending on the material with which you need to work. For example, you cannot cut wood with a metal cutting blade. Therefore, the ability to correctly and quickly remove the disc, put a new one is necessary for everyone.
Do not confuse discs, there are miter wheels and there are for ripping. well, if you don’t know.
who cares ? I thought if something was cut roughly, for example, a board, then there are fewer teeth, if the chipboard then there are more teeth, it seems to cut normally
there is a difference, I did not know myself. Miter saws have a bunch of teeth. and longitudinal, after the teeth, the protrusion goes on which there is no tooth. technologies. eh
I now have a disk with 80 teeth, it is written in aluminum wood, just as I indicated in the subject, only 80 and size 210. It normally cuts both chipboard on the sawing table and the butt and aluminum. Maybe, of course, if they work from morning to evening, they will quickly cover
If the hinge has been cut, you can move the stop bar forward just a couple of millimeters, no?
My Bosch 8c also didn’t finish the box out of the box, I moved the stop bar and that’s all.
I will look, but I doubt whether it moves, perhaps it is simple itself cannot cut, did not cut in length at an angle of 45. everything else cuts
Most likely it will do, but maybe something will need to be corrected from the elements. I’m on a Metabo 216, I put the 230 disc, but the plastic protective cover had to be removed.
How did the saw work? Worth taking?
Look at the analogue from Interskol (if the budget for Makitu / DeWalt does not allow) When I chose Interskol PTK 216 for trimming, I also liked it and the repeatability of the cut is normal there, just the woodworking machine is separate and only trimming with a broach was needed.
How did the saw work? Worth taking?
For not frequent use in the garage, I am completely satisfied, earlier which bar to saw off so much time spent, marked and one fig crooked and chipped, but now well, that’s a nice thing))
How did the saw work? Worth taking?
for quality saws I recommend the inexpensive Bosch PCM 8S. I have been using it for 5 years, only I change the circles for more accurate and sharpened ones or for specialized ones when cutting plastics or aluminum. A table stand with extension cords on the sides was also a positive discovery for me.
There are drawbacks. I have a remark on a faulty clamp and a laser that is clogged with resin from trees.
No beating, mechanics. super.
Corner drift for complex structures (polyhedral frames) can be compensated for on the last segment by sawing its ends at certain micro-angles until the entire polygonal frame converges.
The guide rails are not stored in the garage. chrome begins to corrode from the dripping condensate. Sorry.
Do not take very cheap ones, the mechanics are lame there!
How to change a miter saw blade
I bought a combined miter saw
Miter saw ZPT-255-1800 LM2 (Bison). Disk replacement.

Makita saws. the tool for all sawing tasks!
The Makita electric chain saw is a classic of the genre and is used wherever rough cutting of wood is required. For example, when logging wood. It is also convenient when performing carpentry work: the longitudinal groove in the log is selected with much less labor costs and with greater accuracy than when using traditional technology. chipping with an ax. If you think the electrical cord is too dangerous when working on a scaffold, opt for a cordless model. The design and ergonomics of electric chainsaws are similar to those of chainsaws, you don’t have to change habits and learn new skills.
Circular saws can be both hand-held and table-top. The first ones are mobile and are used for fairly accurate cutting. longitudinal or transverse sawing. of various materials: wood, plastic, non-ferrous metals. The latter can become the basis for personal woodworking production. The tool with a saw blade of this brand is reliable and safe to work. Most models are equipped with a soft start system, an electromagnetic brake and a vacuum cleaner connection.
Band saws are characterized by increased productivity and cutting accuracy. Their working body is a saw band in the form of a ring, which is tensioned by a special mechanism. High cutting speed is achieved by lubricating the blade. In stationary models, ordinary water can be used for this. Having a band machine, you can organize a small sawmill for cutting wood waste into boards. top and off-grade balance.
Reciprocating saws will change the way you think about what a hacksaw can do. Having several replaceable blades, you can cut not only wood, but also metal, aerated concrete, ceramics. Dismantling old wooden structures, in the array of which there are a lot of foreign inclusions. nails, screws and other fasteners, with this tool turns from dusty monotonous and unproductive work into a kind of attraction.

Criterias of choice
When choosing a miter saw, you should consider the following factors:
- the diameter of the disc, the depth of the cut;
- the size of the available cutting angles;
- maximum permissible power. for trimming equipment, this indicator varies from 1 to 2.2 kW;
- disk rotation speed. according to this indicator, network models hold the lead (the number of revolutions per minute reaches 3 thousand).

Japanese quality Makita
For almost a century of its existence, the Japanese company Makita has perfectly established itself in the world market. Power tools, generators and garden equipment from this manufacturer are popular with professionals and hobbyists who prefer reliability, high efficiency and maximum comfort in work.
For example, it is useless to look for a Makita HR2450 rotary hammer made in Germany or the UK on sale. This tool comes off only from the conveyors of one of the two Chinese factories, as evidenced by the letters “Y” or “K” at the end of the serial number on the nameplate of the tool itself (packaging and some accessories may be from another manufacturer).
The fact that this information is open confirms once again the transparency of the economic policy of the Makita Group and the responsibility for quality. All new technologies are developed in the homeland of the brand. in Japan, and are improved at the plant in Okazaki, and only after that, under the vigilant supervision of qualified specialists, are they introduced into production at other enterprises, including Chinese.
As for the quality standards, they are the same for all Makita products, regardless of the manufacturer’s geography. All factories have certificates confirming the compliance of the existing quality management system with the ISO 9000: 2000 standards, aimed at satisfying the interests of consumers.
Thus, the quality of the Chinese Makita, unless it is a cheap fake, is on a par with Japanese, English or, for example, German. And to exclude a fake, it is enough to use the services of an authorized Makita dealer. For example, the services of MakitaPro.

It is designed for oblique, oblique and combined (oblique at an angle) sawing wood blanks and the device of rectangular grooves. With the appropriate working attachments, the saw can be used for sawing plastics and soft metals. Equipped with a powerful motor (1430 W) and a 260 mm diameter saw blade, the saw enables high-quality sawing of workpieces up to 91 mm thick. At the same time, the maximum workpiece width can reach 310mm, which became possible due to the large rotary work table and design features.
The saw mechanism moves on two guide rods on linear bearings, which increases the path of the blade up to 310 mm (standard is 95 mm). The saw is very maneuverable: the saw blade can take different positions in relation to the workpiece. So in the vertical plane, it can tilt within 45 degrees in both directions, and in the horizontal plane, it can turn up to 52 degrees to the right and up to 45 degrees to the left. To protect the mechanism from premature wear in the Makita LS1013 face saw, an electronic starting current system is provided.
Since certain manipulations with the tool can be performed only when the engine is completely stopped, to speed up the work process, the developers used an engine braking system in the Makita LS1013 end saw, thanks to which the disc stops in a matter of seconds. The working part of the saw is covered with a reliable casing with a pendulum mechanism that automatically exposes the cutting attachment as the blade approaches the workpiece. The sawdust is removed through a special hole in the housing. The scope of delivery of the end saw Makita LS 1013 includes a dust bag. Since its volume is very limited, it is possible to connect a vacuum cleaner for intensive work. A spindle lock is provided for a simple and safe change of working attachments.

- Use discs with the correct fit and diameter.
- Do not touch the disc while working.
- When ripping, use the special stops and guides.
- If the disc is stuck, release the start button immediately. Do the same for an unplanned disk stop.
- Do not cut workpieces with nails, make sure they are not there in advance.
Buying a miter saw or combination saw from an authorized Makita dealer provides two main benefits to the customer. guaranteed product quality and guaranteed quality of service.
Makita Miter Saws
The Japanese brand Makita is known all over the world and occupies one of the leading places in the global power tool market. Makita products. it is a guarantee of one hundred percent quality, reliability and long service life.
The company, which has existed since 1915, has won international recognition over several decades of its existence and has steadily retained its position to this day. Makita’s production facilities are located in several countries, and a successfully growing dealer network has spread across all continents. The wide geography of representative offices is explained by the fact that Makita power tools can be used in various climatic zones and under extreme loads.
The peculiarity of the Makita power tool is also that each electric motor is created taking into account the distinctive features of each separate type of equipment. In addition, the company uses only proven and reliable materials for the manufacture of tools and focuses on its own quality standards, which are much stricter than those adopted in the industry as a whole.
Miter (end) saw Makita. This is an electric tool designed for repeated precise sawing of workpieces at an angle and at various angles (straight or predetermined oblique angle). It can be considered a modernized version of the classic miter box (see Fig. 1), which is still widespread, but absolutely unsuitable for continuous work, since sawing is carried out using a conventional hacksaw. The miter saw also allows you to connect parts “in a mustache”, that is, an oblique connection, for which it received such names as “miter”, “miter saw” or “miter saw”. But still “miter saw” or “trimming”. a more general and common variant of the name.
The Makita miter saw is indispensable in the manufacture of window frames, door frames, various pieces of furniture, interior details and decorative frames. It is also effective when carrying out construction, installation and finishing works, in particular when laying parquet and laminate boards, installing skirting boards, platbands, when decorating walls with clapboard. With its help, you can saw not only wooden blanks, but also plastic, drywall and some types of non-ferrous metals (aluminum).
Virtually Makita miter saw. This is a circular saw, fixed on the base (desktop) and therefore has slightly different functions. In other words. It is a small-sized sawing machine consisting of a motor with a gearbox, a saw blade, a handle with controls and a base. It can be installed on the floor, on a table or on a special stand. The swivel part of the working table is equipped with a longitudinal stop, and for working with large and non-standard workpieces, all Makita trims are equipped with an additional stop, which is fixed in special holes on the sides of the bed, allowing you to increase the size of the work table and conveniently fix the workpiece on it. The base is usually made of magnesium alloy or die-cast aluminum. These materials are not only durable, but also lightweight, which significantly reduces the overall weight of the structure.
To fulfill its main purpose. oblique cut, the working base is rotated in different directions at a given angle. To set the exact angle, Makita miter saws are equipped with a non-erasable and easy-to-read digital scale, and fixed most commonly used values are provided for quick adjustment of the cutting angle. 0º, 15º, 22.5º, 30º and 45º.
Combined miter saws (Makita LH1040, Makita LH1040F, Makita LF1000) occupy a special place in the range of miter saws, which are a universal tool that allows you to perform both transverse and longitudinal sawing of wood and other materials (plastic, aluminum) on the same equipment. They are most effective for working with small-sized workpieces (for example, making parquet), as well as for performing standard work that does not require perfect accuracy, but speed. The peculiarity of the Makita combination saw device is the presence of a saw table placed on top of the disk and designed to implement the function of a circular saw. Converting a tool from a miter saw to a sawing one and vice versa is quick and easy, and the machine itself is compact and does not take up much space. For rip cuts, the saw arm locks in the lower position, thus keeping the table horizontally.
The main characteristics that determine the operation of Makita miter saws are: power, tool weight, speed, width and depth of cut.
Power indicator. fundamental for any type of electric tool, since it is he who is responsible for the smoothness of the working process and for the ability to cut more dense material. However, power is directly proportional to the weight of the product, which is important if the miter saw is used on the road. In this regard, Makita specialists have chosen the optimal ratio of these two indicators. Most Makita miter saws have a power of 1.65 kW (Makita LS1040) and weights range from 11 to 34 kg.
The number of revolutions. the characteristic on which the speed and cleanliness of the cut depend. For Makita miter saws, its maximum value reaches 6,000 rpm (Makita LS0714FLB). Some models have an electronic speed control. Despite the fact that this function is of little importance, it still allows you to control the cutting process to some extent and adjust the tool to work with the corresponding material. Another option related to the RPM metric is even less common. It is about maintaining a constant number of revolutions at different loads, the meaning of which is that the built-in electronics will independently correct the speed when the pressure is increased or decreased. The accuracy of the cut and the duration of the work process depend on this. However, such a function is not necessary for an experienced craftsman, since he, feeling the saw, can compensate for the drop in revolutions with an additional feed.
The indicators of the width and depth of cut reflect the functionality of the tool, serve as the main criterion for selection and depend on the size of the blade. The cutting width is also influenced by the design of the working base. As a rule, miter saws have a relatively small cutting width, and especially when working in a slope or at an angle. To increase this indicator, the manufacturer Makita has equipped some of its models (Makita LS0714) with a traction function. In this case, the working unit is installed on two guide rods, as a result of which it is able to move along the mowing line of the cut, increasing its range of motion and providing a cutting width of up to 310 mm (instead of the standard 95 mm) with a working disc diameter of 190 mm. The “traction” function is called because the operator pulls the disc towards himself. In this case, the cutting edge of the disk rotates in the opposite direction from the user, so that the sawdust flow moves to the side, and the disk itself also presses the workpiece against the stop.
As for the cutting depth, it is in the miter saws in the range from 52 mm (Makita LS0714FLB) to 122 mm (Makita LS1440) when sawing at an angle of 90º.
In addition to the main characteristics, each model of Makita miter saws has its own set of additional functions and settings, the presence of which is designed to ensure greater productivity, increase the life of the product and reduce the risk of injury during the working process.
Firstly, most models (Makita LS1040) are equipped with an engine braking system. Such an electrodynamic brake stops the saw blade smoothly and almost instantly, which speeds up the work process (since all manipulations with changing the cutting angle and other changes in the position of the equipment are carried out only with the engine off), and at the same time acts as a kind of means of protecting the operator from possible industrial injuries.
Thirdly, the working part of the Makita miter saw is covered with a strong cover and is equipped with a pendulum mechanism, due to which the sharp teeth of the equipment are exposed only as the saw blade approaches the workpiece.
Fourthly, on the case of most models there is a built-in hole for removing sawdust, debris and dust into a linen bag specially designed for this purpose (included in the delivery set). This is due to both the need to keep the workplace clean and to reduce the amount of wood or other dust, which poses a significant hazard to human health. When carrying out intensive and prolonged work, a vacuum cleaner (Makita LS1013) can be connected to the same hole using a branch pipe.
Fifth, some Makita miter saws (Makita LS1040F) are equipped with a fluorescent illumination lamp (denoted by the letter F in the name) to improve the view of the working area, and some also have a laser marker, the so-called “precision aiming system” (Makita LS0714FLB), which allows you to clearly follow the markings. Both the first and second options improve the quality of work and provide additional comfort.
Makita miter saws use a saw blade as a working tool. As a rule, it comes with each product, but sometimes, as, for example, in the case of the Makita LS1440 model, you have to purchase it separately. It should also be remembered that different types of material, cutting methods and the desired result require different discs.
They can differ in outer and bore diameters, geometry and sharpening of teeth, as well as material of manufacture. The landing diameter differs only with rare exceptions, usually it is 30 mm (Makita LF1000), while the outer diameter varies significantly from 190 mm / 20 mm (Makita LS0714) to 355 mm / 25 mm (Makita LS1440). However, the most common are discs with a diameter of 255 and 260 mm.
As for other parameters of disks, all of them also, to a greater or lesser extent, affect the quality and result of work.
Makita miter saws, like any other tool with cutting attachments, require extra care. The Makita manufacturer accompanies each of its tools with instructions for use, which spell out the basic safety rules. You should definitely familiarize yourself with them before starting work, remember them and re-read them from time to time to refresh your memory.
