With the saw unplugged, lay it upside down on a bench or table. Put a small scrap of 2x4 against the blade and adjust until the depth of the blade matches the thickness of the 2x4. Lock it in place, Then bend or adjust the depth scale so that it reads 1-1/2 inches. Good luck.

SOURCE: need substitute switch part for sears saw

Sorry , but go buy a new saw. Your not going to find an aftermarket
dealer that carries this switch.

Trying to rig some other switch is not worth the trouble over buying a new one. If the switch is not available, then the saw is old.

Blade wont cut all the way down when cutting baseboard


the maximum cutting depth of a circular saw is the distance from the teeth to the drive washer hub of the saw blade
so on a 7 1/2 saw the effective cut would be less than 3"
if your base board is thicker than that get a bigger saw
it the board is a lot less adjust the cut depth adjustment for the saw base

I cant get the blade to lower. Where is the release?


without a model number I am going to guess. Most circular saws have the blade depth adjustment towards the back of the handle and usually on the left side. If you need an owners manual you would need the correct model number and then go to managemyhome.com and you can probably find it there. If you want to reply to me with the model number I will find exactly where the release is for you.

Blade Depth


Aren't there two handcrank wheels on the sides of the saw? One is for blade angle of cut, the other is for depth of cut.
