The grinder should have come with a special wrench that fits the "nut" that holds the wheel on. There should also be a button to push to lock the shaft. With the grinder unplugged gently push the button in and turn the wheel till the shaft locks then put the whrech on the nut and spin it off.

How to change a grinder blade on a ryobi grinder


Handheld grinder or bench grinder? I'll assume you're asking about a handheld grinder.

Engage the arbor lock. You may need to rotate the wheel until you find the spot where the arbor lock locks the wheel. Use a wrench or a gloved hand to unscrew the wheel (I use my bare hand). Screw the replacement wheel on and disengage the arbor lock. The new wheel doesn't need to be very tight, it'll tighten itself as you work.

Hi, I'm trying to change the fiber disc on a DeWalt DW402 but after pushing the locking button on top I'm not able to unscrew the wheel. If I turn counterclockwise the wheel turns, but it seems I...


  • 1 Check the grinder before you begin. The newer discs on rotary grinders have patented buttons that allow you to remove the disc without any tools. You may have one like that. In models like this, there's usually a spot to depress and then remove the disc.

  • 2 Turn off the grinder before you attempt to remove and change the disc on your rotary grinder. If it's battery powered, put the grinder in lock position so you can't accidentally turn it on. If it's electric, unplug the grinder from the wall.
  • 3 Look for a nut in the center of the disc. This is a give away that you need to use your special wrench. Sometimes the grinder comes with a tool necessary to loosen and remove the nut. Other times you need to use a wrench.
  • 4 Lock the wheel into place before you begin. You can find a button or switch at the side or back that allows you to do that. When you lock the wheel in place, the disc remains still as you loosen the nut in the center.
  • 5 Remove the nut in the center with either the tool provided with the grinder or a shop tool and lift the disc off your rotary grinder.
  • 6Lift the disc off the rotary grinder. If you have different discs, remember to check for the best fit. Put the nut back on a different way for different discs. Check for a rim and indentation on one side of the nut and a flat side on the other. A visual inspection of the disc for the rotary grinder gives you information about the side to use.

    I dont know how to change the wheel/blade on this DeWalt cut off tool/grinder! Help!


    If its a hand held grinder, on the back or the side of the grinder itself there is a button in which you must depress. While depressing it you must turn the wheel at the same time until it locks in place. You have to keep the button pressing to get it to lock.

    Once it locks into place, you need a spanner wrench to loosen up the nut (counterclock wise). If you have a grinding wheel on it, some just screw on without a nut. And if this is the case, then just grab a hold of the wheel by hand and turn it counterclock wise and it should come off.

    Make sure you unplug the tool before doing any of the above.

    How do i change wheels


    There usually is a locking pin that stops the wheel from turning. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THIS UNIT UNPLUGGED!!! Press this button in while slowly rotating the wheel, once it engages the wheel will lock. With your wrench you can now take off the blade. It may have a left handed thread so going clockwise will loosen it.

    I don't know how to change the grinding blade on my makita angle grinder.


    There is a nut that you release from the middle of the grinder wheel, (grinder blade)
    This nut is flat and has four holes in it.

    You will see you are providing a spanner wrench to remove this nut. The wrenches' actual name is Lock Nut Wrench. It has a U shaped end with two pins sticking out. On on each side of the U shape.

    The pins are inserted into the holes in the flat lock nut, located in the middle of the grinding wheel. The wrench is laid flat against the grinding wheel, with the two pins of the wrench going into any two holes of the nut.

    At the top of the Makita grinder you will see a Black button. The button is pushed down to keep the grinding wheel from spinning. Holds the grinding wheel in place, as you turn the lock nut loose. When you release the button, a spring inside pushes the button back up out of the way.

    As you view the Makita grinder, Release Button towards the Back, grinding wheel towards you, the nut is turned to the LEFT, to loosen. It is a Left threaded nut.

    The grinding wheel spins to the Right. Using a left threaded nut insures that the nut will stay tight, due to the direction the grinding wheel spins.
