New to forum, seeking answer to problem with Makita X2 LXT 10" cordless compound miter saw. Have been working with tool for almost a year, have put it through its paces and cut all kinds of bevels with it. Today it got stuck at 22.5 degress (right side) and I can't get it to budge. I suspect the lock release button is somehow broken or jammed. I took off the back plastic housing hoping to get at it, but it turns out I'd have to do more disassembly to access it. Has anyone had this problem? I've been deep Team Blue for ten years but this is causing me to reconsider my loyalties. Brought my job to a screeching halt today. I'm at a remote off-grid site and can manage with workarounds but I'd rather fix the problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Does anyone know if the "thrust bearing," the dime-size circular ball bearing ring in the pivot recess, is supposed to be lubricated? I can see factory lube on the O-ring that surrounds this area, but I can't tell if the ball bearing ring should be greased or not. Mine was all choked with sawdust, so I blew it out with compressed air and would like to know before I put it all back together whether or not the factory wants that to be lubed. Thanks.
Is it worth getting a miter stand for my miter saw? Ive been debating whether or not to get one. Ive been lugging around 6x4 table everytime everytime i needed the saw. The only thing holding me back is the price I own a Bosch 5312 and the price for a bosch stand is around 300$. Can anybody tell me from expirience if the extentions and wheels are worth the money.
