Question about Saws
The tool-free blade clamp ring is supposed to turn a few degrees anti-clockwise and clockwise, to insert and to remove the blade. But it won't turn, so i can't insert the blade. it turned yesterday, when I wanted to remove the blade, which I did, so I could replace the saw in its case. Do you have the same make and model? help!

Hi again Guy, It is easy to overlook the obvious, I do it a lot. There are two allen screws in the rubber boot at the front bottom that need to be removed to release the foot (or shoe), which should slide out the end. Then the whole boot ( forward hand grip) pulls off the end exposing the assembly you need to replace. Good Luck to you, this should Fixya!

What I would try is to spray some WD40 on the pin first and then see if you can find a small screwdriver or punch and try pushing the pin in further to release the broken blade. It doesn't sound as though it is anything major, maybe a burr on the side of the pin or possibly rust or debris. DON"T hit the pin because you might damage it or push it in and never get it back out. Looked at a diagram and it appears that they used roll pins to hold the clamp in place so it might be that one is cracked or mushroomed and you might have to drive them out. I suggest that you go to Searspartsdirect.com and type in your model number to look at the same diagram.

Point tool away from body.
2. Rotate blade clamp collar (the knurled diamond pattern knob just at the back of where the blade goes) to release position.
3. Insert blade shank from the front.
4. Rotate blade clamp collar to lock blade into position.
