Skilsaw 5380 blade installation problem

I just got a new one for Christmas, but can't get the bolt off to put the blade in. I have found a lot of information for changing the blade, but no tips on putting the first one in. I followed the advice in the instructions but can't get it off. Any suggests? Thanks

SOURCE: Where is the blade lock button on a skilsaw 5150 2

First, there is no blade lock button on the Skil model 5150. I called the Skil customer service and they emailed me the exact manual for this circular saw. The method I used to loosen a VERY TIGHT blade stud was: spray with WD-40, imbed the blade in scrap wood, set Skil wrench (usually found in back of foot under handle) on so it could be struck going in counter-clockwise direction. Use hammer to strike handle of wrench a couple of times. To replace blade, finger-tighten blade stud, then use wrench to tighten 1/8 turn or (45°).

SOURCE: Skilsaw 5380 Roller Pin Removal

To remove a rolled pin you need to use a punch tool like a small chisel with a constant diameter and a flat tip. They sell these in chisel sets at Sears and other places. Or you might be able to use a bolt of the right diameter and tap it with a hammer. Don't use a nail though, too soft, it will just jam in there. Good luck.

on a circular saw
pull the power lead from the plug
using a screw driver , place the blade between the teeth and turn until the screw driver is jammed under the plate
use a ring spanner and undo the nut that holds the blade on
pull the blade out and fit the new blade with the direction arrow in the right direction
replace the plate and the bolt do the bolt up tight

some blades have a hole in the blade in which to insert the screw driver to hold the blade , or a lock lever behind the cover to hold the armature shaft while changing the blade

Table saw motor burning


Sorry, but my advice is to throw it away. With the 5380 anything more than a cord is not worth repairing.
My recommendation is to buy a Makita 5007 series and stay away from Skil.

Center bolt spins freely


There was probably a hole in the flange that you discarded that was used to put a pin/ nail/ bolt/ etc in from the body of the saw to hold that flange from turning while you did the nut up. Unless that hole is there you will have no way of holding the shaft to tighten the nut.

How do I replace a skilsaw blade?


The saw has a bolt in the center of the blade. The saw blade will have to be held in place, (so it can't turn), while the bolt is being loosened. Pay attention to the rotation direction, as your replacement will need to rotate in the same direction. Once you have removed the bolt, there is a centering spacer that fits between the bolt and the blade, remove it paying attention to how it fits..you will need to put it on the new blade in the same manner. You can now remove your blade and replace. Good Luck. I hope this is very helpful!

How to I change the blade on a skilsaw cicular saw?


The blade is USUALLY held by a LEFT HAND thread bolt. Sometimes they have a diamond insert in the blade that must be removed if the saw has a matching boss on the arbor. If the saw has that, you punch the insert from the blade and engage the diamond over the boss on the saw then put the clamp washer on top and then install the bolt.

OFTEN there is a button near the blade are to push in to "freeze" the arbor so the bolt can be removed/installed. These are USUALLY left hand threaded bolts.

Where is blade lock for my Skilsaw 5150 located


look for the button on the right side of the handle. Other models require you to put a phillips head screwdriver into a hole in the blade to hold it against the body of the saw.
