How to lift saw blade. My saw is many your old and bought for another. I now need to use it but do not know how to lift cutting blade


The bed moves down so that less blade shows on a skill saw. The locking lever is usually between the blade guard and the handle. Look for a lever and pull it up to unlock, then move the bed down to expose less blade, then push the lever down to lock the bed in place. Please supply a picture of the saw you are using.

My Blue Laser


Ever wish you could make that perfect cut the first time with your miter saw or table saw ? Simple if you put a strip of wide blue tape on base of saw and cut the tape with your saw ! Now you know where the blade will cut, now mark your wood, move the wood and the pencil mark to edge of tape that you just cut and cut it. That simple and easy to calibrate verses the red lasers that come on some saws that to me never work right to begin with.

check the blade, it sounds like it is burning the wood instead of cutting it. I would recommend using a carbide tipped blade for the hardwood. Let me know if you need more assistnace.

How to change blades


unplug it. remove the bolt in the center of the blade. the blade will slip off then. a wrench for this should have come with your saw. if not, use any properly sized wrench. if needed, pull back the blade guard, put the blade on a old piece of wood, push down on the saw and use the wrench. the wood and your pressure will stop the blade from turning as you loosen the bolt

Not cutting through wood. Cuts are diminishing.


Sounds like the wood your cutting through is to hard for your battery powered saw....try one with a cord they work much better, especially for hardwood's.

How do I install the blade on a bosch cs10 circular saw


Their web site seems to be down at the moment but most circular saw you just need to lock the blade somehow. Sometimes putting the blade up against a piece of wood so it can't turn will get the job done. Unplug the saw so it can't run. Some saws come with a custom wrench to turn a custom bolt, others a regular combination wrench would work. There should be a bolt that goes into the center of the blade. To keep the bolt from coming out while cutting, they are reverse threaded so you loosen it by turning the bolt the reverse direction you on a normal bolt. take the bolt out and be careful you don't loose the washers on each side of the blade. Put in new blade and reverse the process of taking it apart.

Cover will not come up to cut wood


K looked at a breakdown for this tool and it sounds like you are missing a shoulder bolt or roller with bolt that attaches to the lever. Try pulling the guard up by hand (unplug saw first) and watch the side where the cover is for the movement of the lever. Try and locate where it is jumping or the missing part. You can look at the same breakdown at Searspartsdirect.com and by typing in your model number it will come up. It is not really that clear but you will get some idea how the lever/guard work. Let me know if you still have trouble
