I had the same problem with my black and decker table saw.

The shaft goes through the motor and there is a groove for a screwdriver to hold the shaft in place.

Once the shaft is stationary the arbor nut can easily be removed

If it is like a Dewalt table saw it requires 2 wrenches, one for the hex nut and the other open end for the spindle shaft. If this doesn't help you can go to their website and look at an operators manual for this particular tool.

Changing the blade


Remove the red throat plate on the table - using the 2 blade wrenches (one on the arbor and one on the nut) loosen the nut and remove the blade.

New to table saw use, have my husbands old 10 craftsman, was learning to rip with it doing fine, then it started to bog down during cut until the blades stops, moving. put on a new blade and noticed...


If I understood correctly, you started using your husband's table saw and while ripping boards, you managed to stall out the blade AND motor?! If that's the case, you probably have a very dull blade and are binding your board on the blade. Neither is safe and it sounds like trouble is brewing.

First and foremost, get someone to show you how to safely and properly use and adjust the saw if you are new to wood working and power tools. That saw is capable of turning your lumber into a high speed missal if you do things improperly.

It also sounds like you tried installing a new 10" saw blade. Changing the blade requires 2 wrenches. One to hold the arbor and one to tighten the nut. The blade itself should rest on the arbor between two large washers. Also make sure you install the blade so the front face of the cutter teeth face you and rotate toward you. Make sure the saw is unplugged when changing the blade and never turn on your saw with a loose blade.

Can't loosen arbor nut


Use a block of wood to hold the blade from turning and pull the wrench toward you. Most saws will have the nut on the right side of the blade and will use a right-hand thread. But if the nut is on the left side of the blade, it will be a left-handed thread. In either case, PULL. The crescent wrench should work fine if you place the block of wood in a position where the blade naturally jambs into it and cannot turn. If the washer is correctly placed you do not need to tighten the nut all that much. If it is really stubborn, use a little WD40. Clean it off thoroughly after you get it apart.

Replacing a craftsman raial arm saw blade


Arbor nuts always loosen by turning them in the same direction the blade turns when cutting. This makes them self tightening while the saw is in use.

Having problem get blade off table saw any hints


Unplug the saw, first and foremost.
Then see if your saw arbor has facets for a wrench behind the blade, and if so, try to find a slim wrench that fits there to hold the arbor while you attempt to loosen the arbor nut that holds the blad on. If that doesn't work, take a stick of wood, like a piece about 3/4" x 1 1/4" x 12-16" long, remove the throat plate from around the blade, wedge the stick between the blade teeth and the edge of the throat slot to hold the blade in place firmly, exerting levered force toward the center of the blade to hold it in place, and using the wrench, loosen the arbor nut. Make sure you are attempting to loosen in the correct direction. Depending which side of the blade the nut is on, some nuts are reverse threaded.
Good luck.

I need an owner's manual for a Rockwell 34-660 model table saw. I want to replace the blade but the entire shaft turns when I try to remove the shaft nut from the shaft.


You might be able to find a manual here.
You need to lock the blade in place so it doesn't rotate when you loosen the arbor nut. Many older rockwell saws actually had a detent ground in the shaft behind the blade that allow the use of a second wrench to hold the shaft from spinning while the nut is loosened. It takes a special thin wrench to get in there, and the ones that came with the saws were bent just behind the head of the wrench to get around the blade and out the throat, but if you know anyone with a delta tablesaw they may have one you can borrow, or perhaps you can grind down an old cheapy that fits.
If that's not the case, try the instructions I gave in this link.

My saw problem has to do with changeing the blade. I'm useing a thin kirf blade. When I change the blade I have to put a wrench on the arbor next to the pulley to keep the arbor shaft from turning when I...


The nut is binding on the arbor because the threads are buggered up or clogged with something. It could be the nut (which is probably brass and soft) or the arbor (which is steel). If it got a little cross threaded, the damage will be on the nut. It might be the arbor if the arbor took a whack. Once you have it apart you should be able to see it - although the damage might be pretty small. You aren't likely to have a tap and die to run through the threads, but you can probably fix it with a little rotary tool (like a dremel) using a small disc. If it is the arbor you can use a triangular file. Or you can buy a new nut. I hope this helps.

I have an old craftsman table saw. i believe the "brake" or gears a shot. the saw runs very loud and shakes. now no matter how much i tighten the blade the nut loosens after one cut.


With the saw unplugged and the blade tightened, using your fingers try to wiggle the blade side to side and lift it up and down. Other than a little flexing of the blade, there should be no movement. If you have much movement you have a problem and the saw is dangerous. If this is a belt-driven saw, then you may be able to replace the bearings on the arbor (the shaft the saw mounts to) or you may have to replace the whole arbor. If this is a direct-drive saw (the saw mounts directly on the motor shaft) then the bearings that have failed are in the motor and you are less likely to be able find and install replacement bearings. If you find the model number of your saw, you might be able to find drawings and replacement parts on this site:

How to change the saw blade


Adjustments
LARGEHEXWRENCH
TO REPLACeTHE BLADE
See Figures 43 - 45.
 Unplug the saw.
 Lower the saw blade, raise the blade guard, and remove the throat plate.
 Make sure the bevel locking lever is securely pushed to the left. Raise the saw blade to its full height by turning the height/bevel adjusting handwheel clockwise.
 Using the smaller hex wrench, insert the flat open end into the flats on the arbor shaft.
 Insert the closed end of the larger hex wrench over the hex nut. Holding both wrenches firmly, pull the larger wrench forward to the front of the machine. Make sure the blade nut is securely tightened. Do not overtighten.
Check all clearances for free blade rotation. See To Set the Scale to the Blade. In cutting operations, the scale will be set to the side of the blade where the cut will be measured and made.
To replace the blade with an accessory blade, follow the instructions provided with the accessory.
To install a standard blade:
 Place the new blade on the arbor shaft (the teeth must point down toward the front of the saw to work properly).
 Place the blade washer and the blade nut over the blade arbor. Be sure the dome side of the blade washer faces out from the blade and that all items are snug against the arbor housing. Tighten securely.

NOTE: Securely tighten throat plate screws. Do not allow the throat plate to bow up above the table surface.

How to change blade;where is button to hold blade from moveing


There is no button to lock the arbor on a table saw. One method is to take a piece of wood, about 1" x 1 1/2" x 16" long, rest it against the back or front of the table throat and lever it against the blade, holding the blade from spinning while you use the wrench to loosen the nut on the arbor.
Make sure you first unplug the saw before changing the blade. Lever against other end of throat while tightening.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread. If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take a moment to kindly rate this post....thanks!
