Question about Craftsman Saws
Posted by Anonymous on
I have one. It is a locking style blade. There is a lock that you need to push to release it. The lock looks like another tool next to the hinge of the blade. Push it against the base of the blade.

you need to grab the blade with something.maybe some pliers(if you are not going to refurbish blade) and loosen the nut in the center of the blade. i think it is a left hand thread(cw to loosen) because of the rotation of the blade. if the nut is on the left when looking from the front it is probably left handed. make sure it's unplugged and wear leather gloves so you don't get cut. install in reverse...

Hi Tom, W/D here.
There are usually three different ways that blades are installed and/or removed. All require that the power be removed from the saw first (pull the plug, please).
1. The most common method involves a shaft lock, so look for this first. It will appear as a button on the motor, near the blade. When you depress the button, you'll need to rotate the shaft/blade by hand until the lock sets in place in the shaft. Then, while still holding the shaft lock button down, use a wrench to loosen the blade. (Look at the threads to make sure that you are turning in the right direction, as this may be reverse threaded).
2. Less common is a shaft that has an allen socket in the end of it. Place the loosening wrench on the not, then place the allen wrench in the end of the shaft.
3. If all else fails, you can, VERY carefully, wedge the blade down into a piece of soft wood such as pine, then loosening the blade with a wrench. Make very sure that you keep all of your bodily parts out of the line of fire when using this method, as the blade can turn suddenly, and you don't want to have anything caught up and cut by the blade.
Hope this helps, Best regards, --W/D--
