Hello Frank,

I would like to assist you with your saw making a grinding noise. I am suspecting that the gears in the drive section of the motor assembly are making the noise, as long as we are certain that the blade bolt is tightened correctly. There is a gear that I have circled in the exploded diagram that is attached at the end of this reply and I think that this is what is causing the noise.

To inspect it, the blade and the bearing retainer (#6) need to be removed. Be sure to look closely at the diagram and take digital pictures during disassembly if you want. Sears Parts Direct is a direct link to parts for your miter saw.

Please let me know if you would like any further assistance.
