Some saws don't have a blade brake , i always take a pair of vise grips and adjust to grip blade tightly and hold or bind against housing then remove bolts works well for me

Bolt that holds blade well not loosen what is the correct direction to loosen bolt


Remember that on a circular saw, the bolts are typically left-handed thread so it is the opposite of a typical bolt. This is because the blade spins to the right so if a normal bolt was used it would loosen as the saw operates.

My Craftsman 7&1/4 inch 12 amp Circular Saw(Model 315.108330) slips while cutting. The motor keeps spinning but the saw stops rotating. Can I Fix it?


Most circular 7-1/4 saws have a bolt and a compression washer that acts as a brake shoe that holds the blade secure but under dire circumstances will allow the blade to slip some rather than hold the motor shaft and allow burn out. The compression washer under your bolt has become worn and doesn't grip the blade securely. You can find a split washer that will fit under the blade and give you some more friction, or go to sears and order another compression washer for your saw.In the Sears Parts List found at: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Craftsman-Parts/Saw-Parts/Model-32018780/0247/0744410/50035950/00001?blt=06&prst=&shdMod=

Cannot tighten blade on old craftsman circular saw.bolt turns blade shaft and motor without tighting blade


Is the washer/spacer in the blade too thick and you are perhaps tightening up on that instead of the blade. Also check the threads on the bolt, see if the bolt turns all the way in without the blade in position. It may be jamming up before gripping the blade.

How do I change the blade


Isn't there a lock mechanism on the saw?
Engage that and wrench off & then on.
Be sure blade arrow direction is correct.
PS You're not the sharpest blade in the pack----are you?

How to engage spindle lock?


The spindle lock should be a short rod that sticks out on the motor side of the saw. Push this in and rotate the blade until the rod pushes in and locks the spindle. This will hold it tight so you can use a wrench on the nut that holds the blade on.

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.

In the past I have clamped a pair of vice grips on the old blade so I could remove the bolt from the arbor.

Changing circular saw blade


near the guard should be a button u hold and rotate blade(unplug first)until it locks, some old and cheap saws have no lock pin, so lock blade with vise grips and let rest against base plate and loosen nut.
