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.

Hello daobrien,
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.

SOURCE: Craftsman Miter Saw - can't remove the blade

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

How to change a mitre saw blade


When changing the blade on your mitre saw the first step is to unplug the tool for safety reasons. DO NOT disassembly the safety cover, there is a bolt on the housing that when loosened allows the cover to be moved away from the blade to expose the spindle bolt. After moving the ASSEMBLY away from the blade turn the blade by hand slowly while pushing on the spindle lock to stop rotation. Loosen the blade bolt (usually left hand thread) and place the parts in the order removed, e.g. blade bolt outer flange, blade spacer if used. Reinstall blade noting the rotation of the teeth and replace parts in reverse order. After installation check for rotation by carefully turning the blade by hand and replace safety cover to its original position and tighten bolt.

To remove the blade, is the nut right or left-hand threads? Is there a blade lock?


With any circular saw, table saw, metal cut off saw, mitre saw etc the nut always tightens against the direction of rotation and loosens the opposite way

I have a Superior brand slide mitre saw,quite new,but the centre nut for the blade is so tight wouldn't come loose,I used wd40,good vise grip,the nut quality is so soft,starting to wear out,even I griped...


This applies to the blade sitting to the left of the motor shaft. Try jamming a piece of 2x4 into the blade teeth, then using either a long-handle box-end wrench, or a 6-point socket fitted with a breaker bar to turn the nut by pushing down at the saw front. If the blade sits to the right of the motor shaft, then the reverse of the above should loosen the nut. However, the block of wood in the saw teeth will not help--you must freeze the blade with large 'vise-grips' at the rear of the blade and lift up on the wrench or socket. There should be a shaft lock to hold the motor shaft from turning. Good luck!

I casnt remove the centre nut from my c8fse chop saw


Hi, when I do this I insert a large screw driver into the blade saw to stop the blade turning, as you will need to turn the nut clockwise.

How do i change the blade on my delta 10" mitre saw


Exploded diagram for your SM100M miter saw is here.
User manual is here.

Page 20 covers blade change operation.

Make sure you unplug your saw! You need to remove a screw from the cover and rotate the cover to the rear. Use a hex wrench in the motor shaft to keep the saw blade from turning, and loosen the arbor nut with a 1/2" wrench. The arbor is reverse threaded, so you'll turn it clockwise to loosen, then counterclockwise to tighten it up after you have swapped the blade.
Rotate the cover back after that's done, and replace the screw.

If this was useful, please vote. Thanks.

How do I replace my mitre saw blade?


It should still easily fit a 5/8" blade. The arbor shape shouldnt have any effect on the type of arbor hole needed on the saw blade (only round arbor holes are made on saw blades. You will probably find the arbor securing nut has a shape that fits into the flat gaps between the saw blade and the arbor when fixed. So grab a 5/8" round arbor saw blade and give it a go. It should work fine.
It is the arbor nut that secures the blade onto the arbor via friction which holds it on.

Cant remove Bosch 10'' mitre saw blsde nut too tight.


Try the other direction. It seems to me those are reverse threaded....so you have to turn the bolt clockwise to loosen.

Changing the saw blade on a Ryobi Mitre saw


There may be a push button type blade lock, and on many of these saws the retaining bolt for the blade is backwards threads, e.i., looking at the top of blade retaining bolt, turn it clockwise to loosen. This would normally tighten, but in the case of many of these saws, it loosens it.
