Question about Saws
This saw has relatively few operating hours; yet, it has been in (box) storage in cool, dry space for years..............Perhaps extreme (winter-summer) temperature fluctuation has affected (stator-rotor) clearances or the brushes themselves. Upon startup, there is no unusual vibration or looseness of the arbor-blade assembly. It "freewheels" (after release of the ON/OFF switch. However, comparing (sound) this saw with an identical saw, when powered, it has a much more profound, constant, "raspy" noise.............Please advise Robert J Blaskowski ...email@example.com

OK done some more checking and I believe you are out of luck, but before giving up hope do you have a saw sharpening business in your area?? My friend says that he has sent blades to one in my area and had the center hole bored out to the appropriate arbor hole and the blades run true and from what he tells me it is relatively cheap, so check first and see and then you can buy a blade in the diameter you want and have it bored out. Sorrry I couldn't come up with anything else, I check about 6 diffferent mfrs and they all have the same.

It sounds as though one or both of the items are stripped. They mesh to drive the blade so I would not take a chance on just replacing just one. Also when you look at this you might also want to look at replacing the bearings and brushes. Make sure you clean out the gear housing or you will have immediate problems again. Also check where you buy these parts for their recommendation on the grease that needs to be used.

Usually there is a button to press that locks the shaft arbor and then you use a wrench to tighten OFTEN is a left hand thread!
Check for lock button behind the blade guard toward the motor.

Gasoline cut-off saws are a simple and extremely robust tool that will easily last for many years if treated with respect and maintained regularly .
During normal operation it is absolutely imperative that the correct fuel/oil mix is always used. An incorrect mixture leading to a lack of lubrication is by far the easiest way to ensure an untimely death for your cut-off saw.
Here's a list of regular cut-off saw maintenance tips that will keep your machine running and running:
