Take a pair of good vise grips and hook onto blade tightly, slide uo against back braket. that will hold the blade from spinning while you remove the nut, try bumping your ratchet/ wrench w/ a rubber mallet or hammer. hope this helps

My T250B has a spring return pin to the left of the blade on the housing. UNPLUG the saw ...hold this pin in the down position and rotate the blade with your hand ... the pin will fall into a hole in the shaft and hold the blade while you undo the nut ... may need three hands ...*L*

I am not sure I can be any clearer than to say the saw dooes not cut the tile square.


the problem is probably the slide cart you set tile on to push it into the blade,on the right side theres a roller you can adjust the the height of the tray,or look at the very bottom of the cutting arm,left hand side,on the outside,where its painted red, theres 2 bolts that hold the cutting arm to the frame of the saw body,try this first, i bet nuts got loose and the cutting arm dropped a tiny bit screwing everything up

Looking for shaft lock to change the blade on MK 170 wet saw


Just use a rag and grab the blade. Unless the threads are messed up you don't have to hold the arbor still, just the blade.

There is not a lock on this saw. If the blade is to tight to hold by hand you need to use an impact wrench. It will loosen the nut before the blade has time to start spinning.

MK water saw - water goes every where but on the blade!


When you say you turn the pressure up, I presume you mean you are opening the suction on the side of the pump.

On the saw which I have used in the past it is difficult to aim the warter spray. I opted for more water (open the suction on the pump) and let it go. most of it went onto the saw blade - some went onto the tile, some on me and some on the wall --- put a piece of cardboard or something behind your saw to help contain the overspray.

Tile saw not cutting straight


Sometimes a blade that is set deep enough will walk in this manner, especially if it is a thin kerf blade like the MK Hotdog blade.

Also, a blade which has worn unevenly will do this too.

The saw in not pumping water


I have came across to possible solutions with other tile saws in the past. One is that your pump could have picked up a small piece of tile or sedement from the basin and got stuck in the water port where it comes out on to the blade. The first thing I would try is to disconnect the hose frome the blade shroud while saw is off. **** on the end of the hose until you get water. Sometimes the line needs to be primed and filled with water. Once you get water you can turn the pump or saw on while disconnected to see if water flows. Keep loose hoses away from blade though! If nothing then try the blocked port. Good luck
