Question: Lower Blade Guard
The lower blade guard which rotates as you bring the blade down to the material is no longer rotating. It is staying in the one position (up) but can be moved manually.
I attempted to take it apart and reassemble but it still does not work. no directions in the manual on how to fix this. Does any one know how to make it work again?

If I understand you right then the guard rotates freely but when you make a cut it rotates up but will not automatically rotate back down.If this is the case then it sounds as if the Coil Spring Part Number: 2610949175 is broken and needs to be replaced.Hope this helps.Good luck.
Question: Motor Brake
How does the brake work on the Bosch 12" sliding compound miter saw model 5412, 0601665139?
Also, I have a segment missing on the end of the armature where the brushes make contact. How is the armature removed? I am wondering if I have to remove the whole housing from the saw, or if I can remove it in place from the rear of the motor.
Question: Bosch 5412 12" Slider Not S...
....I have a 5412 slider, and I replaced
#34 Arm Support
#109 Shaft Piviot
#105/106 Rollor Rubes
#104 Slide Bearings
#30 Metal Cap
I CANNOT get the saw to slide parallel to the blade. If I square the blade to the fence, it won't slide square, ending up about a half blade width over.
If I square the sliding motion to the fence, then the blade itself is not square.

So, taking one out of the book from my AutoBody days, I was able to fix my saw.
What do you do when you replace everything and it still is JUST right....
Get a prybar and make it right.
I locked the head down, the slider in and used a prybar to "bend" the head into alignment with the sliding motion. It sounds kinda rough, but honestly, its REALLY hard to "bend" so you can fine tune how much pretty easy....
Anywho, its fixed now, I went through all the motions to see if it messed something else up along the way, but it still plunges straight, parrellel and square, as well as it slides parrallel and square....
