How do you remove the blade on my toledo chop saw

Unplug the saw first. Then raise the guard and lower the blade onto a piece of wood to keep the blade from turning. Using a proper wrench, turn the nut in the direction the blade spins when cutting and remove the nut and blade.

Need to remove chuck on new BOSCH DDS181-02 18v cordless drill. No screw evident @ bottom of chuck-only small 1/16" hole. How do I remove chuck?

There is supposed to be a Phillips head LH thread screw in the chuck. I have seen the screw head worn down so you can no longer get a screwdriver to work.
We usually cut the chuck off with a metal chop saw just at the screw - thread what remains of the chuck off, which usually leaves 1/4" of the screw sticking out of the spindle - remove with vise grips.
Its not an easy prospect when that happens.

How do u remove the blade on a chop saw ls1013

Be sure the saw is switched off and unplugged. Use the Makita socket wrench on the side of the saw base if you still have it. If not make sure you use a socket or wrench that fits the bolts properly so you get them off and back on without damaging them. Lock the handle in the up position with the stopper pin. Loosen the hex bolt holding the center cover in place, this will let you raise the guard and center cover so you can get at the blade bolt. There is a button on the back side of the blade guard that locks the spindle. Push and hold the button in and turn the blade until it locks in place. Using the socket wrench, turn the blade bolt clockwise or in the same direction the blade turns while cutting to remove it, the outer flange and blade. Put the new blade on (check that the direction of the arrow on the blade is the same as on the guard), the outer flange and blade bolt. Use the spindle lock to get the bolt on tight. Return the center cover to it's original position and tighten it's hex bolt. Turn the blade by hand to make sure the spindle lock released then pull the stopper pin and make sure the blade guard works properly.

Cant remove chuck from a dwd 520

That one looks tricky! If the jaws on the chuck work lock an allen socket in the jaws and impact it of right hand with an impact wrench. This could damage the gears however if it's really tight. Another option is cutting half the chuck off in a chop saw just above the spindle and welding a nut on and impacting it off that way. The heat from the chop saw and welding will help loosen the chuck.
Good luck with that one!

I need to know how to change the blade to my Milwaukee heavy duty abrasive cutoff machine.

Look around the housing where the switch handle bolts on. You should see a spindle lock pin. With the unit unplugged you want to push in the pin and when you go to tighten or loosen the blade bolt the spindle will lock into place. Sometimes you need to turn the spindle a bit for the lock to catch. Once you have changed the blade just release the pin as it is spring loaded.
