    I called the 888 number on the owners manual and they suggested checking with Ace hardware. If Ace cannot help, I can call back and they will try to find a used spring off of a returned saw.



    Thanks to all who have helped.

    Do you already have a new spring? Usually the saws that I work on have either a hole or pin in the guard depending on spring. If you get me the model number I will check into it and see what I can come up with and possibly a spring if you didn't get one.

The spring hooks onto the blade guard and wraps around the hub of the blade guard. It is orta hard to see but it will hook onto the guard.

B & D #3051 worm drive saw: How do I access the return spring for blade guard?


Link,
Usually you will have to remove the blade guard to get access to that. There is usually a rubber stop with a screw going through it that you will have to remove, and a spiral spring clip on the inside of the hub of the blade guard that will also have to be removed and then you should be able to lift the blade guard off the saw. The spring will hook around the blade guard and the other end will hook to the saw housing. Hope this helps!

What is the spring for in the 2000w makita circular saw


Other than carbon brush springs, the only other spring that I know of on a circular saw is for the blade guard so that it will automatically return to cover the blade after you make the cut. There should be a hook or a bend in each end of the spring and each end has a certain spot where it hooks so that it pulls the blade guard back in place.

I have a Porter Circular Saw, 18v, Cordless, 6 and a half inch blade. I'm a novice, so I unhooked the wire latchet that held the lower guard on. I figured out how to put the saw blade on, yet I have the...


Remove the battery, take the blade back off and you will see the holes for the torsion spring. what you will have to do is start putting lower guard on but pretenstion the spring so it will fit back into the proper holes, it might be a benefit to remove the small bumper so that you can move the guard more. when installing the blade you don't remove the lower guard just retract it and slide the blade in place. Usually there is a retaining ring to hold the guard in place but I looked at a breakdown and didn't see one. Let me know if you need more assistance before voting please. Thank you

Replacing the blade guard spring


there is a hold in the lower guard for the loop and the other end wraps around the guard slightly and there is a hole in the back of the upper guard. You can go to Milwaukeetool.com and download a breakdown for the tool Also when you have the blade off I would try using compressed air to clean the area and spray some lubricant on the hub to lubricate. The guard should "snap" back when done sawing. Let me know if you need more help
