Question about Skilsaw 5380 Circular Saws
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

Should be a locking mechanism on back of saw push or pull the hold blade still...then use adjustable wrench to loosen nut on saw blade..pull off blade..slap a new one on..and away you go!!

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.
