  • Looking for MS1290LZA MS-UV Mitre Saw not working that you are willing to part out

    I have a very well functioning MS1290LZA mitre saw but the blade guard (830040 Lowe Guard Assembly) is broken. The parts are discontinued and there is no-one it seems that stocks these parts. My last gasp idea is to find someone who has a dead saw and willing to part out this blade guard.
    It is just not safe to use the saw without a blade guard and I hate to throw it away when everything else works fine.
    Appreciate if anyone has any other ideas?

    Thanks.

    your best chance of finding something local is probably Craigslist of LetGo or one of the other such sites. Even Facebook has gotten in the act with 'Facebook Marketplace'. Heard of it but know nothing about it. People tell me they buy and sell stuff on there all the time.

    So maybe one of those will work for you. Something where you don't end up paying shipping seems like the best way to go. Maybe you end up buying another broken saw that has the parts you need, and hang on to it for future parts.

      Thanks Bob. I have been looking in those places but there doesn't seem to be any locally. Also a couple I did see outside of the area had the blade guard broken or they wanted $300. Pretty crazy considering the price of a new saw. I was hoping to find someone that could just remove the blade guard parts from their dead saw. Shipping wouldn't be too high. Clearly, this is a last gasp idea. I may just sell the saw for whatever I could get and buy a new one. sigh..

        Unfortunately it comes down to that sometimes. And it usually with a tool that has served you well and you're not ready to part with.

        All those tools you bought that didn't live up to the hype somehow seem to last forever. :-(
