Question about Skil 10" Table Saw

Can't Get Blade Off

I need to put a different type of blade on my new ten inch skil table saw. I just got the saw out of the box. I can not get the arbor nut to release. The instructions indicate it should turn counter clockwise or toward the front of the saw. I have tried WD-40 to no effect.

    Actually, what rowdy45176 suggested is more or less what we ended up doing. It took both me and my fatherlaw, but it finally gave. It helped that I quit worrying about breaking it.

Without a model number I cant look at a breakdown but if it is like the table saws that I work on I would assume that you removed the center plate to get to the hex nut and spindle, if so what I have to sometimes is put my wrench on the spindle and brace it against the saw frame and using a soft mallet tap on the hex wrench to loosen the nut. After this initial blade change the hex nut has to be tight but not to the point of breaking wrenches. If this doesn't work get me the model number and I will dig deeper to try and help

How do I put a blade in a shopsmith scroll saw

Open the cover, remove the clearance insert, there may also be a plug that spreads the channel in the table that you remove the blade from. Take the tension off the blade, rotate the wheel slightly and pull the blade off slowly, thread the blade through the channel in the table. Install the new blade in the reverse order. If the blade is a different width you may need to adjust the blade guides and the tension will be set differently.

Witch way to turn the blade bolt on a 10" table saw

I'd be surprised if it were anything but a normal, right handed thread.

So, put on some leather gloves, block the blade from turning with a piece of scrap lumber. Use the appropriate size blade wrench and, I assume you're removing the blade, pull the wrench toward you to loosen it. Always remember, lefty loosy, righty tighty and you'll never wonder which way to turn it again. Obviously if this method tightens the nut rather than loosening it, it's a left handed thread and needs to go the opposite direction. Should loosen/tighten rather easily, so don't force it one way or the other.

How do I install new on/off switch on Skil Saw 3400

make sure you have it unplugged, turn it upside down so you can access the switch , put a thick towel or something over the blade to prevent shredding your hand, or better yet remove the blade, unscrew the wire support if any, de-press the switch tabs and it should slide out through the front, replace with a factory switch, or go to the hardware store and get a switch you can mount in its place, be sure it can handle 120v AC 15-20 amps, or what ever your saws' previous switch was rated for. If you use a different switch try to get one with a safety cover so you don't accidentally turn it on.

New skil HD5510-01 5 1/2 inch trim saw quit running after cutting a bunch of 2x4s

Does it have any sort of blade safety lock?
Did the blade bind and possibly throw the built in circuit breaker?
If so, there may be a small pin or button you press.
Did you try a different electrical outlet?
The one you were using could have a GFP and not able to take the draw of a saw.

Have a Skil #3305-01 table saw. Need to set blade

The jam nut is on the end of the bolt you are adjusting, directly underneath the table. The easiest way to get to it is to place the saw on it's left side, and move the saw blade to the maximum bevel position (45 degrees). You can then reach up -directly underneath the location of the bolt on top - and access the jam nut.

To be clear - the bolt you are tightening is about 2 inches long with the jam nut on the end with the purpose of tightening the bolt into place once you have established the correct adjusted position.

And yes, the directions for this step were terrible.

I would check to see that ID of the blade arbor matches the OD of the motor arbor, and you are not missing an adapter ring. Then I would get some acetone and a wire brush clean all surfaces where the blade seats. This is also good practice for Jacobs chucks on drills, that allow the drill bits to spin.

Skil saw motor runs but blade won't spin

you have a loose nut.  Let me explain...the nut and washer that holds the blade to the motor has worked loose.  You need to remove the plate around the blade to acess it and on the end of the blade is a large nut.  Tighten it with the power off.  Sometime there is a grove on the motor shaft to hold the motor or sometimes you need to put a screwdriver into the teeth of the blade to hold in place to tighten.

Bought model 3400 skil table saw. have no manual. can't find control for tilting blade. how do i tilt blade

This model does not have a knob on the side.
There is only a locking lever on the front next to a single rotating wheel for height adjustments. To tilt the blade simply twist the locking lever to the left and push the height adjustment wheel to the right. It can be a bit stiff at times to move.

Blade size

There are two common blades: Eight-Inch Table Saws are a good choice for crafts and other applications associated with thinner stock.Ten-Inch Table Saws provide the extra cutting depth needed for angled cuts in thicker stock.
