I completely removed the blade and put it back on, tightening the locknut, and now it works perfectly. The blade has not come loose and have used the machine for the last 3 months. The only thing I can think of is that somehow I didn't have the blade correctly installed in the first place, although it didn't wobble or anything.

Re: loose replacement blade
First of all unplug the miter saw and then remove the blade. Now examine the saw to check the direction of rotation. Be sure you are putting the blade on so that the rotation arrow on the blade is pointing in the same direction as the rotation of the tool. Now reassemble. Be sure to use some muscle to put the blade on fairly tight. Now when you use the miter saw let the blade do the cutting, do not overwork the tool by trying to cut too fast. good luck.

I have been in the same situation in the past, with a mastercraft miter saw to a point of using playing cards to get that nice tight miter joint. placing the cards between the fence and the piece i was trying to miter.Rioby makes mastercraft all thought they are a good saw they have their limits to the precisions of their cuts. good for fences,decks, stuctural framing ect, were a degree two is not a big thing,but when making furniture or interior trim work or picture frames or hobby craft you need to buy a good pro saw like a dewalt or bosh sliding compoud miter saw they may cost more **** their worth the money they are very precise and will last a life time if taken care of .It will be worth the money when you get that perfect cut every time you use it,it will put the JOY and fun back in your projects and not to mention qualaty in your master pieces.
you may have not gotten the blade on the arbor correctly, it sound like it is crooked, but if you look at the blade while it is spinning, you should see that. it is most likely the blade being crooked in the arbor, take the blade off and reinstall it.
Hello. I have the 730, and think they're basically the same saw. There is no hose hookup, rather you fill the reservoir manually and the pump will continue to feed it to the wheel. (Your's does have a pump?)
If with pump (like mine) - fill the resevoir to about 3/4 full and let the saw do the rest.
If no pump - make sure the waterlevel does''nt get below the cut line of the blade. It looks "shinier" then the centre of the blade. This is so the grit will not collect at the slot on the table or in the housing. That will prevent binding.

Hope the info helps. Don't for get to rate this if you're happy.
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.
