Makita 1016 Sliding Problem

Recommended Posts

I have been using a Makita 1016 for a couple of decades.  The problem is the miter lock plate sits on the miter scale plate. 

I replace the "slide plate" as the original was broken, I still can use the saw without the scale plate in place.   

Is the saw designed to have the "turn base" sit on the plastic "slide plate", or is there something missing in between the two components.

Is it possible the "turn plate" has worn down, the flatness of the work area seems OK.

Any help will be appreciated.
