Makita 2401b 10inch mitersaw before and after


Recommended Posts

My makita 10inch mitersaw that i recently got at a publicsurplus auction for 27.35 and it was in a little bit of ruff shape and cord was very bad and needed to be greased and cleaned very well.I have included only two before and the rest are after i was done with it. i also made a base so i dont ruin the cast iron one. i tore the saw completly apart and clean everything .There are some a couple videos on my youtube channel which ishttps://www.youtube.com/channel/UCv5UsmoaOKv06LfOdEE91kA  if you would like to check them out. i repainted the base and the arm parts and the guard .also on the guard was a crack from somebody tightened the screw down to hard.So i got jb weld and a pair of vise grips and fixed it . Then i painted the guard after the glue dry and put a new makita sticker on it. This saw is anywhere from 1983 to 87 this model was made .total time spent cleaning the parts and painting i would say 12 to 15 hours.
