If the spindle is broken you have to take the front of the saw apart, but check for excessive wear in the other parts before buying just the one. Its not that hard just pay attention when you disassemble

Portercable 737 tigersaw can't keep a blade in the quick latch

You can try spraying some lubricant into the blade holder. Sometimes the "ball" in the shaft gets stuck from dirt. Otherwise you will need to disassemble it by removing the roll pin that holds the collar on the shaft.

I have a Model 737 Tiger Saw that was loaned out and now I cannot load a blade. It appears that a blade may have been broken off in the quick change collar. I cannot pry it out, so I must disassemble the...

Its hot pressed onto the shaft its made not to come apart because if it did in use it would not be good. I use sawalls all of the time and fine if the blade snaps low you can get them out with a strong magnet if you hold it up side down and turn the collar shake it around mabey spray some WD40 in side first it may take a little doing but it beats takeing that change collar a part.

I need to get the gear out of the back in order to pull the recipt shaft it is broken.. how do u pull the gear out I have the 9745 tiger saw

Are you serious? Dewalt sells a saw for $100.00! I like the tiger saw but choose the path of least resistance. Your saw isn't worth it . Time will be high and parts plus shipping will add up as well as the wait time.
