The bolt is counter clock wise (standard thread), use a screw driver to jam the blade

First guy is right also use a socket 6 point to get the nut loose and you can tap it with a hammer just a little to break it loose.

Blade removal. Is the spindle right hand or left hand thread?


It is the opposite way to whichever way the blade spins. Rotation tightens the bolt. So if you put a socket wrench on the blade and hand turn the blade in the direction of travel, this would tighten. Lock the blade and turn the wrench the other way.

Long time since I have used a circular saw!

Bolt on saw blade is to tight and cannot loosen the bolt


Cheryl,
Remember that the nut has what they call left handed threads, and that you need to turn the opposite way from a normal nut to loosen it.

Can't remove blade on circular saw model 315.10951 A3155. Bolt turns or spins, but won't come out.


This bolt is what called left handed thread so you need to turn it in the oppisite driction as a normal right handed bolt. righty tighty and lefty losey well its rigthty losey. A t this point you need to get this bolt out or the saw it junk you can try slideing something under the bolt something thin and try to get back force on it as you turn the bolt in the correct dericition and see if it will thread out if it dose then you will have to get a left handed tap the size of the bolt hole and retap the hole and also get a new bolt.The tap will cost 30 dollars or so well good luck

Cannot remove blade from craftsman circular saw


without knowing the model number I can only assume that it is a circular saw and the blade is on the right hand side and then the bolt should be a standard thread. Hold the spindle lock in and turn the bolt counter clockwise to loosen. If other than it would probably be a left hand thread and do just the opposite. Let me know and if so please provide the model number so I can look at a breakdown for the tool.

Can not remove the old blade


1. Unplug the saw.
2. Locate the blade lock button used to lock the motor shaft when changing a blade. For your saw, this button is usually located on the left side of the blade guard somewhere around the motor housing.
3. Push the button while rotating the blade until the button engages and the blade will no longer turn.
4. Use the wrench that came with the saw (or another wrench) to loosen and remove the blade bolt. For your saw the bolt should have standard right hand threads which means you loosen the bolt by turning it counter clock-wise.
5. Remove the old blade and replace it with a new blade of the same mounting type. Some blades have a round through hole and some blades have a diamond through hole.
6. Re-install the blade bolt and tighten clock-wise while holding the blade lock button down.

How to I change the blade on a skilsaw cicular saw?


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.

I have tried numerous times to undo a nut on my Black and Decker circular saw without success. which way do I turn the nut to undo it and take the circular saw blade?


Am I correct that this is a hand-held saw? Want to make sure of the terminology.

If so, the bolt holding the blade has right hand threads -- meaning it loosens by turning counter-clockwise.

Is there a blade lock? Are you using it?
