Look for the button on the right side of the handle. Other models require you to put a phillips head screwdriver into a hole in the blade to hold it against the body of the saw.

The 5150 did not come with an arbor lock. The manual clearly states. Do not over tighten. Give a quick blow to the included tool to loosen.

I just set my blade to catch my wood work bench by a 1/16" or so and give the tool a quick tap. Works fine if you keep everything clean and lubricated.

I did not see a lock button on my model. (Are there other Skilsaw model #5150 that have this? If not, why even post this as a possibility?) Luckily my blade did have a hole in it to insert a screw driver. I had to turn the blade just right in order for it to catch. The old blade came off great, but the new blade I just put on did not have a hole. I had to stick the screw driver in one of the teeth perpendicular to the blade nearest the body while I tightened the nut.

I have that saw just stick a screwdriver into one of the teeth perpendicular to the blade and when you tighten the bolt it will keep the blade from turning works like a charm .

Why is my blade hitting the blade guard


Hard to say without seeing it but....wrong sized blade, bent blade, clamp missing or installed wrong, bent guard, or bent blade shaft. I'd look in that order. Hope that helps.

On a skilsaw 5150, I'm just trying to see if it


Hello, No such thing as a "dumb question"... everybody learns something for the first time. The safety is a button located just behind the trigger mechanism ( about where your thumb would be during operation) and must be pushed prior to squeezing the trigger. Since it is a selling feature of any item to have an operator's manual with the item, I am attaching the link to the english version.

Blade change skilsaw 5150


The locking button on this saw is designed for safety. If you are attempting to change the blade it should NOT be plugged in. It sounds as if someone has pushed the lock button while the motor was running and sheared it off.
The only tool that is required to change the blade is the supplied wrench or an equivalent box end. If you cannot make the repair yourself for have the equipment repaired you can take a pair of vise grips. (Use cardboard to prevent warping or gouging the blade) and clamp the edge of the blade below the teeth. The vise grips will stop at the front of the saw as it is too large to pass by the guard allowing you to loosen the nut. Clamp the new blade in the same way only the back of the saw will be used to tighten.

I highly recommend that you either repair yourself or have the tool repaired by a professional.

Parts schematics are all over the net for this tool, here is an example:

As you can see most of the mechanical parts are only a few dollars and it could save you from serious injury during operation.

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°).
