SOURCE: changing the saw blade on a Ryobi Mitre saw

There may be a push button type blade lock, and on many of these saws the retaining bolt for the blade is backwards threads, e.i., looking at the top of blade retaining bolt, turn it clockwise to loosen. This would normally tighten, but in the case of many of these saws, it loosens it.

SOURCE: How do I replace my mitre saw blade?

It should still easily fit a 5/8" blade. The arbor shape shouldnt have any effect on the type of arbor hole needed on the saw blade (only round arbor holes are made on saw blades. You will probably find the arbor securing nut has a shape that fits into the flat gaps between the saw blade and the arbor when fixed. So grab a 5/8" round arbor saw blade and give it a go. It should work fine.
It is the arbor nut that secures the blade onto the arbor via friction which holds it on.

SOURCE: loose replacement blade

I completely removed the blade and put it back on, tightening the locknut, and now it works perfectly. The blade has not come loose and have used the machine for the last 3 months. The only thing I can think of is that somehow I didn't have the blade correctly installed in the first place, although it didn't wobble or anything.

SOURCE: ryobi 18v circular saw owners manual - blade is loose!

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.

SOURCE: I do not know how to release the blade so it will

When you are facing the saw look on the right hand side in the area where the arm pivots. There will be a silver shaft with a groove just in front and slightly lower than the pivot. If you hold down slightly on the handle and pull out on this shaft it will allow the arm to lift up. Locking the arm down is reverse.
Here is a link to the owners manual for this tool.

Blade is stuck in sawzall and cannot remove. It seems like the release button is not engaging all the way to release the blade. Is the fix to remove the front cover and get to it that way?


I just found one by my dumpster that was trashed bc the blade was stuck. I took it apart and after some fiddling, finding nothing on youtube, and no research, I was about to give up. But I clamped some pliers around the blade relrelease collar, because it was obvious the lock release wasn't doing as much as it should, and gave it a firm twist TOWARDS THE LOCK RELEASE and it freed up the collar and the blade!!!! Soaking it in 3 in 1 oil now. Super excited to turn trash into treasure. I have a neighbor that does wood crafts and shes SUPER excited about it. The motor and everything seems to be in working order so it just needs a battery now (:

To get the blade guard on a Ryobi circular saw to stay up.


Blade guards are spring loaded so they will not stay up unless you hold it up manually

How do i change the circular saw blade on my saw? because i cant get the blade out to swap it as its blunt and the blade is now blunt


After removing the blade bolt and the outer flange you will need to fully retract the lower guard (remove battery) and sometimes wiggle the blade but it will come out.

Ryobi Circular Saw


unplug saw
new Ryobi have a spindle lock button, it is unobtrusive and you may miss it
739d802.gif If yours does not, secondhand etc, a screwdriver in the blade teeth between the upper and lower guards provides a locking bar enough to undo the arbor bolt
