Question about Saws
On any saw blade, you will loosen the nut (or bolt) in the direction that the teeth of the blade are pointed. This is because any saw must be designed so that the force of the material being cut pushes against the blade in the direction that would tighten the blade. So, on a miter saw with the blade on the right, when viewing the blade from the right the teeth are pointing counter-clockwise (or left), so you loosen to the left. On the other hand, a radial arm saw or a circular saw where the blade turns clockwise, loosening will be to the right. Good luck.

Not to worry, I think I can help you with your problem. You can try the WD-40, but first try the following. (Sounds like the repair shop wants you to come back.) First what I recommend is that you use your adjustable Vise Grip pliers and clamp it to the front of the blade. If there is a plastic shroud in the way, you may have to remove it temporarily. Doing this may give you enough leverage to loosen the nut. Apply the WD-40, then try to twist off the nut. The idea of using the pliers is allow you to not have hold the brake lock and give you the ability to apply enough torque to do the job. I have done this same thing when my framing saw nut was on to tight and it worked for me. Let me know if this is successful for you. If you would, please a positive feedback for me. I will very much appreciate it. Good luck! :o) Regards, NormanZ

SOURCE: changing circular saw blade
near the guard should be a button u hold and rotate blade(unplug first)until it locks, some old and cheap saws have no lock pin, so lock blade with vise grips and let rest against base plate and loosen nut.

It is left hand thread and if the lock won't hold what you can try is put a 2x4 on the table and pull the head down against the wood and with a good socket and ratchet loosen it that way.. remember to tighten to loosen
