Question about Garden
There should be a block that the blades bolt too with something that will hold the blades stationary. The block is there to "break" when the blades encounter a sudden stop to help prevent engine damage. A couple of type of blocks are a star pattern that goes into the center of the blade or 2 pins that go on either side of the center hole

I believe you mean to say a 'reel' mower. Normally and old fashoined push (non-engine powered) mower.
Most consumer reel mowers do not need to be sharpened. They do however have a knife bed that occasionally needs to be adjusted. It should have the thickness of a regular piece of notebook paper between the blades and the knife bed. (that is really VERY close) You can buy 'lapping compound' from an automotive parts store, and apply that to the bed knife, and then rotate the blades to provide a precise fit for all blades.
Commercial reel mowers, such as those used on golf course equipment are however sharpened normally once or twice a year. It requireds dismantling, and many courses send their blades to a central location for golf equipment, where they are placed on a computer operated sharpener for precision grinding. This cost several hundreds of dollars just for the grinding.

Yes, the bolt turns in the normal direction, and is usually pretty darn tight. Two little tricks that might help you--- use a block of wood (like a short piece of 2x4) to restrict the motion of the blade. Put the block between the end of the blade and the housing where the housing has a bump out or in. The other trick is to put the wrench handle and the blade very near each other. If the blade points to 12 and 6 o'clock, put the wrench handle at 7 (or even closer). Put a heavy rag on the blade and squeeze the 7 and 6 together. I hope this is helpful. Good luck. Al K

Have you tried running it with the blade back on? It may be ok as there is a braking system built into the pto clutch that makes the blades hard to turn by hand. Regards Phil

There are two philips screws on top. I got them with a screw extractor as they were rusted. You won't be able to fasten the blade from the motor side though.
