  • 12" miter saw.

    I recently bought the 12" sliding compound miter saw. there is a very high pitched squeal when the motor starts, any body else having that??? I thought it was part of "breaking in" but after 2 weeks its still there every time the motor starts.

    I think I remember a post from a long while back that had a similar noise and the solution (IIRC) was to tighten the blade bolt a bit more.

        Tightening the blade -may- help, but I'm about 99.9% positive its the belt slipping. Should only do it when its a little cold, and after about 10 cuts it should go away.
        Theres a cover on the right hand side of the saw that can be removed and with an allen key, the belt can be tightened pretty easily.
