SOURCE: cant get blade off
I don't know which model you're using, but normally there's an arbor lock button on the motor side of the blade somewhere that allows you to lock that whole middle housing down so it won't turn. Look underneath the motor and see if you can't find some kind of lock botton or lever. That will make it easy to loosen the nut and tighten the blade down correctly.
Otherwise you're going to have to improvise some way to lock it in place enough to break that nut loose.
Reply with a model # and I can try to find a parts schematic to check for you...

I have that saw just stick a screwdriver into one of the teeth perpendicular to the blade and when you tighten the bolt it will keep the blade from turning works like a charm .

The blade is USUALLY held by a LEFT HAND thread bolt. Sometimes they have a diamond insert in the blade that must be removed if the saw has a matching boss on the arbor. If the saw has that, you punch the insert from the blade and engage the diamond over the boss on the saw then put the clamp washer on top and then install the bolt.
OFTEN there is a button near the blade are to push in to "freeze" the arbor so the bolt can be removed/installed. These are USUALLY left hand threaded bolts.

Should be a locking mechanism on back of saw push or pull the hold blade still...then use adjustable wrench to loosen nut on saw blade..pull off blade..slap a new one on..and away you go!!
