Question about Skil 10" Table Saw

1 Answer

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
