    I checked a couple sites and I dont see any lock button. What did you use when you removed the blade? All is not lost though when you try and tighted the blade just put the blade against a block of wood to stop the rotation and tighten the bolt.

I can't seem to access the parts view for your model, because of its age.
But I'm thinking skil probably hasn't changed things all that much.
Take a look at the 5450 and see if this doesn't help any...click here ...and scroll to page 7.

Blade change skilsaw 5150


The locking button on this saw is designed for safety. If you are attempting to change the blade it should NOT be plugged in. It sounds as if someone has pushed the lock button while the motor was running and sheared it off.
The only tool that is required to change the blade is the supplied wrench or an equivalent box end. If you cannot make the repair yourself for have the equipment repaired you can take a pair of vise grips. (Use cardboard to prevent warping or gouging the blade) and clamp the edge of the blade below the teeth. The vise grips will stop at the front of the saw as it is too large to pass by the guard allowing you to loosen the nut. Clamp the new blade in the same way only the back of the saw will be used to tighten.

I highly recommend that you either repair yourself or have the tool repaired by a professional.

Parts schematics are all over the net for this tool, here is an example:

As you can see most of the mechanical parts are only a few dollars and it could save you from serious injury during operation.

Have an old Black and Decker 7321 Skill Saw. Bought it used. Cant figure out how to change the blade. Help


With the saw UNPLUGGED, check around the base of the motor shaft, there should be some kind of button that you can depress to lock the blade from turning. Then with the appropriate sized wrench, turn the blade locking bolt clockwise (it is a backward thread) to loosen it. Then simply remove the washers, etc carefully and replace them the same way they came off. If there is no locking button, you can use a scrap piece of wood on the saw table and push down on the blade to lock it in place.

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.

Where is the blade lock button on a skilsaw 5150 2 1/8hp ???? i can't get the blade off and turning the saw bolt the same direction as it spins isn't working.


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°).

Just bought Skill Saw 5150 with no blade and bought a 7 1/2'' blade and the saw has a wrench but can't find anyway to lock to undo the nut so I can replace the blade. I pulled on trigger and held it but...


hello I can help you. Look carefully around the housing that surrounds the blade and you will find a small lock button. Push it in and rotate the blade until it locks. Then apply the wrench.

How do you re-install the Skillsaw 5150 blade?


I,ve personally never heard of a problem quite like yours. I use skill saw brand saws every day and the arbor and washer will only make the blade wobble if installed incorrectly. Blades can be turned around to cut different types of material as well. Check to make sure the hole or diamond is the same on the new blade(you might have to punch it out) if its not seeding properly on the saw, you could also check under the guard to make sure nothing is binding the saw. The only other thing I could suggest would be to check the lock button (the one you hold to change blades, that stops the saw motor from turning) if that is stuck, your saw won't run. Good Luck!!
