SOURCE: blade stops spinning

It most likely is the gears that are bad. Usually it sounds real bad first and you can hear the grinding gears. Sometimes spindles snap. You might have a hard time buying parts for Craftsman stuff. And often times it might not be worth it. First take the blade and flanges off. Around the spindle there should be screws holding the spindle hub onto the body. Un screw that and take a look inside. (There might be a retaining ring holding that on too)

If you can see broken gears or metal shavings inside, then you'll need new gears. Always replace the two gears that run together as a set. And of course replace the grease so you don't have metal shavings in there.

Blade removal. Is the spindle right hand or left hand thread?


It is the opposite way to whichever way the blade spins. Rotation tightens the bolt. So if you put a socket wrench on the blade and hand turn the blade in the direction of travel, this would tighten. Lock the blade and turn the wrench the other way.

Long time since I have used a circular saw!

How do i replace blade on kobalt 12dual bevil miter saw?


I don't know the model of saw you have but they are made for fairly rapid and uncomplicated blade changes as users will change the blade fairly often as they cut different materials.

Some saws have a spindle lock which once engaged means the bolt retaining the blade can be loosened with a single wrench and some saws need the spindle holding with a second wrench which is usually fairly thin, in the order of 3 or 4mm, to engage on two narrow flats machined on the spindle.

The blade changing process is a fairly intuitive one and if you take the time to turn the saw over and observe how it is assembled I think you will soon get the idea.

Good luck!

Circular saw locking bolt turns spindle


There is a button on the saw that holds the shaft still. Unplug the saw and put light pressure on this button while you slowly turn thr blade by hand. When it gets to the hole, the button will drop into the shaft. Keep it pressed down and unbolt the nut.

How do u remove the blade on a chop saw ls1013


Be sure the saw is switched off and unplugged. Use the Makita socket wrench on the side of the saw base if you still have it. If not make sure you use a socket or wrench that fits the bolts properly so you get them off and back on without damaging them. Lock the handle in the up position with the stopper pin. Loosen the hex bolt holding the center cover in place, this will let you raise the guard and center cover so you can get at the blade bolt. There is a button on the back side of the blade guard that locks the spindle. Push and hold the button in and turn the blade until it locks in place. Using the socket wrench, turn the blade bolt clockwise or in the same direction the blade turns while cutting to remove it, the outer flange and blade. Put the new blade on (check that the direction of the arrow on the blade is the same as on the guard), the outer flange and blade bolt. Use the spindle lock to get the bolt on tight. Return the center cover to it's original position and tighten it's hex bolt. Turn the blade by hand to make sure the spindle lock released then pull the stopper pin and make sure the blade guard works properly.

I have a Ryobi WS730 wet saw. I suppose the manual was discarded by my wife with the box. I need to change the blade and do not find a stopping mechanism to hold the blade while I use a wrench on the...


The saw should have come with a wheel wrench and a hex key. The hex key will act as your stopping mechanism if you hold it.

With the saw unplugged, loosen the wheel guard lock and rotate the wheel guard to expose the arbor nut. Put the wrench on the arbor nut and a hex key in the spindle. Keep the wheel from turning with the hex key and loosen the arbor nut with the wrench (turn counter-clockwise). Then remove the hex key, wheel wrench, arbor nut, and outer washer to access the blade. Remove the old blade then wipe a drop of oil on the inner washer. Place the new blade on the spindle. Replace the outer washer and then the arbor nut. Again use the wheel wrench and the hex key to tighten the arbor nut while keeping the wheel from turning. Then replace the wheel guard and tighten the wheel guard lock.

The manual is available from Ryobi: http://www.ryobitools.com/catalog/power_tools/tile_saws/WS730 . The direct link to the manual is http://www.ryobitools.com/product_manual/file_url/11/WS730_414_eng.pdf .

I hope this helps.

(If you can't find the hex key, get another that will just fit the opening in the spindle.)

Lost my manual for my 7 1/4 inch circular saw with laser light. Can you simply tell me how to tighten the blade? Thanks Jean


Hi Jean,
Unplug the saw.
# 1: First look for a blade break mine is at the front of the saw.
# 2: Some blades have a hole for a nail.Turn the saw blade down so that you can put a nail through so it catches on the body or Gard when you turn the wrench.
# 3: Use a nail in the gullet : curved space in front of the tooth (o<----nail 9k=to loosen just move the nail to the right side of the blade.My saw doesn't call for total tightening so it wont hurt the motor if it hangs up.If your saw blade has any blue spots it's dull and you need a new one.Thank You for choosing FixYa.com----Darryel

Can't get blade screw off, is a circulat saw brand Rayobi.


Hi delauz1939,

You didn't say exactly what the problem is. Is it that the bolt is too tight or is it that the spindle won't stop turning?

If the problem is that the spindle turns so you can't get the bolt off, there is usually a spindle lock on Ryobi circ saws. It is between the handle and the blade guard. I believe it has a label on it.

If yours doesn't have one, like my saw, what I do is jam the blade so that it won't turn and then loosen the bolt.

If this is not the problem, please reply back.

Hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate your vote. Thanks,

How do I install the blade on a bosch cs10 circular saw


Their web site seems to be down at the moment but most circular saw you just need to lock the blade somehow. Sometimes putting the blade up against a piece of wood so it can't turn will get the job done. Unplug the saw so it can't run. Some saws come with a custom wrench to turn a custom bolt, others a regular combination wrench would work. There should be a bolt that goes into the center of the blade. To keep the bolt from coming out while cutting, they are reverse threaded so you loosen it by turning the bolt the reverse direction you on a normal bolt. take the bolt out and be careful you don't loose the washers on each side of the blade. Put in new blade and reverse the process of taking it apart.
