Question about Saws

1 Answer

Just bought Skill Saw 5150 with no blade and bought a 7 1/2'' blade and the saw has a wrench but can't find anyway to lock to undo the nut so I can replace the blade. I pulled on trigger and held it but nothing seems to lock blade. Anyone have idea or where I can find a manual to read on this thing?

Hello I can help you. Look carefully around the housing that surrounds the blade and you will find a small lock button. Push it in and rotate the blade until it locks. Then apply the wrench.

here is the link to the free manual from skil

How replace blade on 7 1/4 circular saw - Milwaukee


UNPLUG THE SAW first!! Look for the blade lock on the top or front of the motor body, Hold the lock button down while turning the blade nut with a wrench. After a bit you'll feel the lock button engage and hold the blade firm. Rotate the the wrench counter clockwise and remove the nut, Slide the blade out from under the guard and replace with a new one. Reinstall the nut following the above procedure.

I inherited a very old Fury F-7 circular saw from my Dad. It uses a 7-1/4 diameter saw blade. This is sorta-kinda embarrassing, but for the life of me I cannot figure out how to lock the shaft to replace...


Most times when I need to change a blade on my 7 1/4" saw I simply grab the blade on the front side, below the saw's support table, with a pair of channel lock pliers and then use the box end wrench on the blade nut, pushing down from the back side of the saw blade. That should loosen the nut so you can take it out with your fingers. The reverse of this procedure should tighten the nut on a new blade.
I'm not real familiar with the Fury saw, but if it requires saw blades with the diamond shaped cut-out in the center, most of the older blades had a knockout that will fit the diamond shape it would need.

How do I change the saw blade on my 2 hp 7 1/4 saw?


If the saw doesn't have a locking mechanism for changing the blade then you will have to jam a piece of wood in the teeth of the blade so that it cannot turn. Remember safety first. Ensure the saw is unplugged and wear leather gloves when changing the blade. Use a socket or wrench to loosen the nut that holds the blade on and remove the blade. Use the reverse procedure to tighten the blade.

Blade needs changing. nut is hard to get at


With the saw unplugged, retract the guard with the base plate extended so there is minimum teeth showing below. Place the blade of your saw on your wood top workbench. Press it down. Using the wrench that came with the saw or other appropriate size box or open end wrench or socket, turn the nut backward (this is a left hand thread not standard right hand thread). It will be tight.

Alternatively, there may be a shaft lock that you can press to lock the shaft to facilitate unbolting the blade.

Alternatively, there mau be a small hole in the blade. Insert a phillips screw driver in the hole to facilitate blade removal.

Key is knowing the thread is backward to what you expect. The reason for this is to cayse the nut to tighten as you turn on the saw, not loosen.

When you put on the new blade, make sure the nut is properly secured.

I hope this is clear for you.

Have an old Black and Decker 7321 Skill Saw. Bought it used. Cant figure out how to change the blade. Help


With the saw UNPLUGGED, check around the base of the motor shaft, there should be some kind of button that you can depress to lock the blade from turning. Then with the appropriate sized wrench, turn the blade locking bolt clockwise (it is a backward thread) to loosen it. Then simply remove the washers, etc carefully and replace them the same way they came off. If there is no locking button, you can use a scrap piece of wood on the saw table and push down on the blade to lock it in place.

Where is the blade lock button on a skilsaw 5150 2 1/8hp ???? i can't get the blade off and turning the saw bolt the same direction as it spins isn't working.


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°).

Where is the lock button for the skill saw circular saw model 5150. were trying to get the blade back on and the motor just turns when we turn the screw?


I can't seem to access the parts view for your model, because of its age.
But I'm thinking skil probably hasn't changed things all that much.
Take a look at the 5450 and see if this doesn't help any...click here ...and scroll to page 7.
