Question about Skilsaw 5380 Circular Saws
I just got this for Christmas and am trying to put the blade on, but can not get the bolt out. I have found a lot of information on how to change a blade, but none of it applies to putting the first one on. I have read through the instructions but they are no help either. Any advice would be welcome. Thanks
In theory. All you have to do is push the lock bar, undo the blade clamping screw, remove the outer flange and fit the blade onto the back flange (make sure the bore size is correct for the flange. Sometimes you have to use a reducing ring) refit the outer flange and refit the blade locking screw.

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°).

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!!
