SOURCE: loose replacement blade
I completely removed the blade and put it back on, tightening the locknut, and now it works perfectly. The blade has not come loose and have used the machine for the last 3 months. The only thing I can think of is that somehow I didn't have the blade correctly installed in the first place, although it didn't wobble or anything.

SOURCE: Changing the blade
there is a nut holding the blade in the center , it is left handle thread , there should be a locking mechanism to hold the blade while you unscrew the nut

SOURCE: Electric Blade Brake is not
Brake is controlled by the switch. There are two switches that can be used on your saw. One switch has only on/off, the other switch is on/on. On motor when pressed and on brake when released. The switch with brake does not last very long because the braking action is really just shorting motor circuit (short circuit). All motors can produce electricity. The brake action occurs by shorting motor thru switch. Electricity that motor is producing while turning forces armature to stop. Other brands use a resister in breaking system to absorbe current help switch last longer. Parts are available at www.toolpartsdirect.com Good luck

You do not need to remove the blade gaurd to change the blade. You only need to raise it enough to acces the blade screw. Unplug the saw. Raise the blade arm. Raise the guard to it's upper position. On the left side of the blade, just forward and up slightly from the blade screw is a screw for the guard bracket. Loosen, but do not remove this screw. Once it's loosened the guard can be raised farther exposing the blade screw.
pg 6 of the manual illustrates this process, here's a link so you can see the parts I am discribing,
click the pdf icon next to instruction manual, then open the file.
As for the blade wrench, this should have come with the saw, there is a slot in the base for storing the wrench, on the back left side, it slides in and out for safe keeping. If you have misplaced the wrench the DEWALT part number 608563-1
