Tip & How-To about Saws
When changing the blade on your mitre saw the first step is to unplug the tool for safety reasons. DO NOT disassembly the safety cover, there is a bolt on the housing that when loosened allows the cover to be moved away from the blade to expose the spindle bolt. After moving the ASSEMBLY away from the blade turn the blade by hand slowly while pushing on the spindle lock to stop rotation. Loosen the blade bolt (usually left hand thread) and place the parts in the order removed, e.g. blade bolt outer flange, blade spacer if used. Reinstall blade noting the rotation of the teeth and replace parts in reverse order. After installation check for rotation by carefully turning the blade by hand and replace safety cover to its original position and tighten bolt.
