Miter saw issue
I've got a cheap Ryobi 10" Miter saw. (sorry don't have the model # here, but will look tonight). The saw starts, cuts, and runs smoothly, but it's recently started to squeal a bit as the brake kicks in. Yesterday the squeal went to a full yell during my last few cuts of flooring. So I got to looking at similar model diagrams of the saws on the ereplacement parts site. Not one of them shows a braking mechanism. Anyone know how the braking system works on one of these?
I'm somewhat suspecting it has an electrical brake as part of the switch, but if so it must be self contained as the wiring diagram doesn't really show any extra wires. Doesn't quite explain the squeal and vibration it gives off either. I'll probably just go buy another saw, but if it's a $10 part and fix, I'll just keep it going as it has been cutting fine.
