Snapped blade stud/screw on my skilsaw - Saws

Snapped blade stud/screw on my skilsaw 5166. Borrowed this off of my dad on the promise of, if you can fix it you can have it because he didn't know why the blades wouldn't attach. On closer inspection, the bolt holding the bald has snapped in the bit that turns it...any ideas how to fix this or can I not?

You can drill the center of the bolt. Use the smallest bit you have to center as best as you can and progressively use a larger drill bit. remember that the bolt turns clockwise to remove or loosen. Since bolt removal tools likely are designed for the opposite direction you may have to use a screwdriver to try to turn it out. Hit the screwdriver with a hammer a few times into the hole you drilled until it can catch and turn. It likely is not rusted in place and will likely turn easily. Order a new bolt for that make and model from an area small appliance repair place.

SOURCE: cant get blade off

I don't know which model you're using, but normally there's an arbor lock button on the motor side of the blade somewhere that allows you to lock that whole middle housing down so it won't turn. Look underneath the motor and see if you can't find some kind of lock botton or lever. That will make it easy to loosen the nut and tighten the blade down correctly.
Otherwise you're going to have to improvise some way to lock it in place enough to break that nut loose.
Reply with a model # and I can try to find a parts schematic to check for you...

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

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.
