  • Unlocking Miter Saw

    Any suggestion on how i might unlock my saw. I purchased a 12" compound miter saw with laser. I pulled the pin from the back to unlock the handle to pull up the blade once, and when i went to unlock it again, it stuck and i cannot pull it out. HELP!!!! I am ready to use and cannot get it going.

    The length of time since you last used it and where you store it could have contributed to some corrosion between the pin and the frame. Try to coax it by turning and pulling with a pair of channel locks or regular pliers. If this fails you could squirt some penetrating oil or WD40 and let it soak in for a half hour or so and try again.

      If you're not doing it, put a little downward pressure on the arm/handle before you try and pull the locking pin out.
