SOURCE: Solution for "changing blades on a milwaukee miter saw

Have you removed the old blade yet?

The blade lock my be broken off -- it should be a button on top of the motor.

This saw has left hand threads -- turn clockwise to loosen the bolt/nut.

If you can't find the blade lock, lower the saw onto a piece of wood llike a 2x4 to keep the blade from turning.

SOURCE: need to change the blade on a craftsman 10

First off, unplug the saw. No need to remove the guard, though you may have to loosen the cover over the lock nut to access it on some saws.
Look for an arbor lock button on the back side of the blade housing or motor, to lock the blade in place.
Hold that down and use a wrench to loosen the nut holding the blade on.
If you don't have an arbor lock, you'll have to wedge a 1x 4 or 2x4 under the blade and hold pressure on the handle to keep it from spinning while you loosen the lock nut. Once it's loose, spin it off and remove the washer and blade, replace and retighten the nut.
Should be pretty straightforward, as long as you have no power to the machine and lock the blade from turning, not too much can go wrong.
If you want to find an online manual with instructions for your saw, please try Sears online support site at

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

I found a copy by going to the Sears Parts Direct website, then select the link on the right that says "View Manual". It will take you to the Manage My Home website, where you will find a button for "View Manual".

I would upload to Fixya, but I cannot get the Manual upload link to work.

SOURCE: I have a craftsman table saw model 137.248830 and

You should have 4 bolts holding the trunnion on to the table, just loosen these bolts up a little, tap the trunnion with a hammer, the right way, put a straightedge on the blade fully extended and measure across the table to a dado slot, front and rear, tap it till it is exact, tighten bolts and check again. This should do it. You can check your fence the same way. hope this helps.

Craftsman 10 compound miter saw. Model 172.243600. Screeching sound when trigger released.

Hello Kenneth Larsen,

Although I am normally LOATH to recommend going
to SEARS (bad personal experiences (many))...
I would suggest in THIS CASE...

That should be the sound of the BLADE BRAKE...
>> (an important SAFETY FEATURE) <<
If the blade is NOT STOPPING on trigger release...

Go to
Water Filters Lawn Garden Appliance Parts

and enter your model number there for parts,
help & live support...

When you get YOUR PARTS or REPAIR estimate
check out OTHER sites for COMPETITIVE pricing...

I personally THINK it is possible for SEARS to
perform adequately... They just need CLOSE

you should be able to order one from sears. another place to look is ebay. the round plastic thing is to mark with pencil the cut of the blade. put in your sliding miter Gage set at 90 deg. put a piece of wood on it, push forward and cut the wood then slide back and mark the wood position on the plastic. that's the point where your blade cuts

I just opened a 12"

As this is an unused machine, take it back to Sears for replacement (Sears used to have a 'satisfaction-guaranteed' policy--hope they still do)! It appears that the frame is for a smaller saw blade than 12". Good luck!
