You should be able to grab the washer that goes over the blade with some large vise grips

This washer has flat sides cut on it so it will hold the shaft still

How to remove arbor bolt to change blade


Best thing to do is to just rest the blade teeth against a peice of scrap wood, and use the allen key/spanner to undo the bolt. As the bolt undoes in the direction of the cut, the blade teeth should dig in and stop it turning. If the blade lock isn't working anymore, it could mean that it has broken inside, so be careful, incase there is a bit of loose metal in the gearbox, it will be quite catastrophic if it gets caught in the gears.

I bought a ls1016 coupond mitre saw this week. I was cutting cedar 2x6 's today and had a few kick backs. I am building my deck and do not feel safe using the saw after the kick backs. Why as this...


Sounds as if the blade is dull. Or perhaps bent. A dull or bent blade blade will 'grab' the wood, rather than cut it, resulting in binding, or kickbacks.

Solution; replace the blade with a fine-toothed, good quality blade. If the blade is new, then check that the blade is bolted tight on the arbor. If the blade is loose, it can result in kickbacks.

Also, check that all the bolts/fasteners/locking mechanisms on the saw are tight, and in good working order. Sometimes a tool new out-of-the-box will have loose screws/nuts/bolts that need to be tightened up.

Also, when cutting, use a smooth, slow, motion, being sure to give the saw the time it needs to make the cut.

My husband inherited a Ryobi 9" band saw BS900 when his father passed away. We have no manual and are trying to tighten the blade. Can you help us--he's helping his grand son with a cub scout car.


Tensioning a blade on a band saw usually means moving the upper driven wheel upwards. Remove/open the upper wheel cover and look for the lock bolts and the bolt that will jack the wheel upwards to tighten the blade. Loosen off the lock bolts, tension the blade - it needs to be pretty tight with virtually no sideways movement - and tighten the lock bolts. Replace the covers and lock the covers. Make sure that the wall plug is removed from the socket before you proceed with this operation - band saws know no mercy.

How do I install the blade on a bosch cs10 circular saw


Their web site seems to be down at the moment but most circular saw you just need to lock the blade somehow. Sometimes putting the blade up against a piece of wood so it can't turn will get the job done. Unplug the saw so it can't run. Some saws come with a custom wrench to turn a custom bolt, others a regular combination wrench would work. There should be a bolt that goes into the center of the blade. To keep the bolt from coming out while cutting, they are reverse threaded so you loosen it by turning the bolt the reverse direction you on a normal bolt. take the bolt out and be careful you don't loose the washers on each side of the blade. Put in new blade and reverse the process of taking it apart.

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°).

I have a 10"DELTA Miter Saw and need to change blade. Please describe how to remove and replace blade. Thanks


Without a model number I cant look for this saw, but if it is like the other mitre saws that I work on, the lower guard should have a bolt holding it in place, loosen the bolt so you can move the guard and the blade bolt is usually LH thread, on the backside of the gearcase by the blade there should be a spindle lock, rotate blade until it locks and then remove bolt. If your saw is different please give me the model number and I will pull up a schematic and look at it.
