Question about Saws
The saw is the 1800w version
Yes, there must be a washer between the blade and the nut. On many saws this washer has a D-shaped hole to match a flat spot on the shaft. The back-side of this washer usually has a recess so that when the bolt or nut is tightened down it presses down on the saw blade, not the end of the shaft. Sometimes these washers are of the beveled spring type. Good luck!

Am I correct that this is a hand-held saw? Want to make sure of the terminology.
If so, the bolt holding the blade has right hand threads -- meaning it loosens by turning counter-clockwise.
Is there a blade lock? Are you using it?

Lester and SCSpriggs,
Thanks for suggesting a solution. I've just managed to solve it with the help of someone in a technical store. We released the nut and found out that the plate that secured the blade in place was back-to-front. The side that should have faced inside has a bevelled edge and this was causing the loose contact of the blade that wobbled. So thanks anyway for your advice.

Usually there is a button to press that locks the shaft arbor and then you use a wrench to tighten OFTEN is a left hand thread!
Check for lock button behind the blade guard toward the motor.
