    Is this the saw you are talking about? The shaft the blade goes onto is the exact same diameter as the hole (arbour) in the blade some blades have a thing that looks like a washer that brings the hole in the blade to the same size as the shaft, it may be missing or improperly fitted.

    If this is not the case the blade may not be clamped tight to the shaft if you fit a blade that is to thin the clamping system will not engage the blade and it will spin when the saw is off just by spinning it by hand, this could also cause wobble.

    Does the blade rock when you move it laterally with your hand? Could be some bushings are worn and in need of replacement.

Sounds like the bearing is going out on the blade shaft

My Dewalt miter saw DW718 seems frozen. When I squeeze the handle, the blade doesn't move and the motor makes a sound like it's laboring, but stuck.


There's a little black button to press to lock the blade so you can loosen the screw. Did it get stuck in the in position? Can you turn the blade by hand (unplugged of course)?
I believe the 718 has a belt drive. Could the belt be broken and be buckled or twisted in its case preventing any movement?
Was it left out in the weather and did you get water in the bearings?

I bought a ls1016 coupond mitre saw this week. I was cutting cedar 2x6 's today and had a few kick backs. I am building my deck and do not feel safe using the saw after the kick backs. Why as this...


Sounds as if the blade is dull. Or perhaps bent. A dull or bent blade blade will 'grab' the wood, rather than cut it, resulting in binding, or kickbacks.

Solution; replace the blade with a fine-toothed, good quality blade. If the blade is new, then check that the blade is bolted tight on the arbor. If the blade is loose, it can result in kickbacks.

Also, check that all the bolts/fasteners/locking mechanisms on the saw are tight, and in good working order. Sometimes a tool new out-of-the-box will have loose screws/nuts/bolts that need to be tightened up.

Also, when cutting, use a smooth, slow, motion, being sure to give the saw the time it needs to make the cut.

I replaced the blade in the dewalt DW716 mitre, now the blade spins slow and trips my breaker??


Hello, W/D here.

Remove your new blade. With the hardware, bolt, washer,blade and cups off, try the saw. If it operates correctly, re-examine how the blade is installed One blade cup goes on, followed by the blade, then the other cup, followed by the washer and bolt assembly. If the cups were in the wrong order, the blade can drag against the frame of the saw, pulling too many amps, and tripping the breaker.

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 get guard out of way to replace blade..DW718


Make sure the saw is unplugged, manually move the blade guard up to it's fullest extension, push the arbor lock to make sure the arbor and blade do not spin (on front of saw motor housing), then wrench the nut holding the blade to remove. Remove the old blade, install new one and reassemble in reverse order. You can take the guard off completely if you choose, but it is not necessary. I hope this helps and good luck!

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.

If the arbors the same and you're running with in the RPM rating, it will be fine. But ALWAYS wear your safety glasses.

You will have to use a regular square to check out the crafstsman and find out where it is wrong.
