SOURCE: Skilsaw motor runs blade won't turn

It sounds like you bought a lemon possibly. I am thinking that the gears are bad. What you can do is remove the blade and unplug the saw. locate where the screws holding the bearing cover are and remove them to get to the gear and check it. Let me know if you need more help

SOURCE: Where is the blade lock button on a skilsaw 5150 2

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°).

some blades have a hole in the blade in which to insert the screw driver to hold the blade , or a lock lever behind the cover to hold the armature shaft while changing the blade

Change blade


What model of saw are you using? BE SURE TO DISCONNECT THE POWER CORD. There is usually a brake that you push in to lock the motor, it is usually located between the upper blade guard and the handle, on the motor. It should be spring loaded, push it in and hold it in the loosen the nut on the blade, counter clockwise CCW, righty tighty, lefty loosey.
If you still cannot find a brake, put a screwdriver into the curved part of a tooth behind the carbide tip and 90 degrees to the blade near the front of the lower blade guard. It should be below the main shoe (plate that the saw sits on while cutting). When you turn the nut CCW, the screwdriver will lock the blade against the main show and the blade nut may then be loosened and the motor shaft should not spin.
If all this fails, read the instructions and look there for a brake lock.

How do I change the blade


Unplug the saw. I repeat, unplug the saw and then lift the guard all the way up. Set the teeth of the blade in a wood board to keep it from moving and then loosen the blade. If that doesn't work, go to a bike repair shop and ask to borrow/rent a thin wrench that fits behind the blade. Probably a 3/4 or 7/8" wrench. Use that to hold the blade secure then loosen the blade nut.

Witch way to turn the blade bolt on a 10" table saw


I'd be surprised if it were anything but a normal, right handed thread.

So, put on some leather gloves, block the blade from turning with a piece of scrap lumber. Use the appropriate size blade wrench and, I assume you're removing the blade, pull the wrench toward you to loosen it. Always remember, lefty loosy, righty tighty and you'll never wonder which way to turn it again. Obviously if this method tightens the nut rather than loosening it, it's a left handed thread and needs to go the opposite direction. Should loosen/tighten rather easily, so don't force it one way or the other.

Shaft lock will not hold cant change blade


Generally yes. Just put a screwdriver or bar of metal into the teeth of the blade and crank the nut. In the old days that was how we did it all the time.

A vicegrip can be clamped on the blade if you want to protect the teeth.

How do you change the blade on a GMC 10 inch cmpund miter saw?


With the saw unplugged, push the spindle lock in on the motor side of the saw (a short black rod) while turning the blade by hand. The spindle lock will seat and hold the blade still so that you can use a wrench to loosen the nut that holds the blade on. Use the spindle lock again for tightening a new blade on the saw.

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.
