Hi guys gals I have a Makita sliding compound saw model LS1013
the miter adjustment has been getting stiffer and stiffer not sure why?
I release the grip lock and push down on the lock pin and it takes a big push to move it ?
I am a big guy but I know something is out of adjustment somewhere?

Turn your saw upside down, remove all loose debris, air spray clean, look for binding threads/pivots anywhere, go nuts with WD40, then try again?
