Question: Attaching Garter Spring To Brush...
Is there a trick to reattaching the Garter Spring to the Brush holders? The wires are so short I had to do it with chopstick thru the back, after the field was in place. But just incase i have to do it again I could use some advice. It may be that the Brush Holders can come out, I couldn't to it and didn't want to break them.
Question: Wiring For Controller (HELP)
I recently replaced the field in my LS1013FL miter saw and forgot to take a picture when I disassembled the controller. Does anyone know where the white wire, coming from the controller goes? Does it get wired with the Black or Orange wire from the Field, or somewhere else?
Question: Makita LS1013L Miter Saw Slider ...
Hey guys (and gals?), I'm a recent victim of a burglary, lost my old, old, makita chop saw and bought a display model LS1013L at Home Depot to replace my antique. It was stripped of various small parts during its life on the rack so they sold it to me for $200.00 without them. I ordered all the items I could determine were gone from ToolBarn for about $80.00, but I've had no experience with this model, and I'm unsure I can assemble it correctly with just the exploded Makita diagram I downloaded. I'm hoping I can persuade someone with one of these and a digital camera to photograph the underside of their saw and post or email a photo to me. Specifically, I'm interested in the "Lock Lever" (#152 in the parts diagram - it looks like the crank for starting an old model T you see in silent movies). I think this locks the rotation of the cut angle adjustment. I have a long coil spring that slips over its shaft, but don't know in exactly what manner/order. The inner knob/assembly (#180 in the parts diagram) that I believe locks the slider is also a bit of a mystery. It doesn't seem to function without the lever and its accompanying parts (or some other missing items?) in place. The blade was also lost, and due to my limited experience with sliding saws, I'm not sure how important it is to have a dedicated low-tooth-angle sliding saw blade. I guess these limit surface tear-out on the top of sliding cuts?
Thanks in advance for any help you can offer,

Got it worked out with the help of some forum members who emailed photos - the saw was missing the "pipe" or sleeve on the locking shaft (part #181).
