  1. 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!
  2. Hello all, I’m after your friendly professional opinion here, I’ve recenty bought a Makita LS1018l Compound Mitre Saw, as recent as a week ago to be exact. the saw has had about 20 mins total run time since I’ve had, from new. I was cutting widths on a 4x4 yesterday to cut out a mortise and had it running for around 3 minutes off and on, off and on for around 10 seconds each time and smoke appeared out of the motor vents and it stunk. Now it won’t turn back on, even after cooling down as that was my initial thought, so I checked out the brushes and they look like this. do I need new brushes or is it something more serious? Thanks and sorry for the long rant over something very basic but I’m fairly new to this type of power tool 👍👍
