I use a pair of forceps to hold the end and reattach to the little hook hole not an easy task by any means

    I could not find a pair of forceps small enough to reattach the hook to the hole. Really no room to move.

Remove any covers so the "hook" ends are exposed. A good zip tie will hold onto the ends of the springs while you work and a pair of skinny nose lock plyers to hold the working end while you pull-simply cut off the zip ties when you're done.

B & D #3051 worm drive saw: How do I access the return spring for blade guard?


Link,
Usually you will have to remove the blade guard to get access to that. There is usually a rubber stop with a screw going through it that you will have to remove, and a spiral spring clip on the inside of the hub of the blade guard that will also have to be removed and then you should be able to lift the blade guard off the saw. The spring will hook around the blade guard and the other end will hook to the saw housing. Hope this helps!

I don't have this particular model in my shop right now but almost all circular saws work like this. From the blade side of the saw, the spring attaches to a hole in the blade guard usually around the two to three o'clock position. With the blade guard correctly positioned on the saw, wrap the spring clockwise around the bottom of the hub and back up the nine o'clock side. There is another hole or tab inside the top of the upper blade guard somewhere around the twelve to two o'clock position. Hook the end of the spring there and test the guard for free movement throughout it's range of motion.

Replacing the blade guard spring


there is a hold in the lower guard for the loop and the other end wraps around the guard slightly and there is a hole in the back of the upper guard. You can go to Milwaukeetool.com and download a breakdown for the tool Also when you have the blade off I would try using compressed air to clean the area and spray some lubricant on the hub to lubricate. The guard should "snap" back when done sawing. Let me know if you need more help

Repair spring to lower guard to spring back on dewalt 18v dc390 saw


You may be able to salvage the torsion spring that is there. Sometimes the end will break off and you can bend yourself a new end and just stick it back into the retaining hole in the housing or guard. There may be damage to the guard which will not allow you to just bend the spring to make a new joint. Either way, you need to know what you are dealing with. First remove the blade if you haven't done so already. Then remove the bumper (rubber piece) that stops the guard from returning too far. Next you will need a pick or a small flat head screwdriver. Look around the hub and you will notice a retaining ring. You will have to use the pick or screwdriver to get the ring started. Look for a little tab around the perimeter of the hub. You will have to work that tab out and make sure you keep your pick or screwdriver under it. Then work it around and off the hub. Then you can remove the guard from the hub. The spring is located under the guard and is a torsion spring. Look for damage to the guard and the housing as well as the spring. If there is any question to the integrity of the guard you should replace it. The part number for the torsion spring is 612517-00 ($1.50), the retaining ring is 150383-00 ($1.50) just in case you break it, and the guard number is 611925-00 ($6). If you have any questions please post back.

I am missing the part that brings the guard back when you lower the saw blade


I am assuming that you have some type circular saw?
Most popular saws use a spring to return the guard,with the saw unplugged raise the guard and see if the spring is there(you may need to take off the blade) if it is not there,replace with proper spring.one end of the spring will hook onto the fixed 1/2 of the guard the other to the front of the moving guard(consult manual if possible).once this is done insure that the guard mover freely and is not in the way of the blade.Replace the blade in proper direction check guard again for proper travel,make sure everything has been re-tightened .
If the spring is there check for material build-up or debris that is causing
guard not to move,remove blade clean debris or obstruction,replace blade and check for proper operation.Also visually inspect where the moving guard is attached to the saw for any unusual marks or wear this could be a sign that some type of unsafe situation exists,if this happens refer to a pro to fix or buy new never use a saw without a properly working guard,it took 141 stitches to repair my friends leg.
