Craftsman Miter Saw - can't remove the blade

I have an old miter saw and the blade nut is on the left side (when facing the saw). The lock won't hold and I am not sure which way to turn the nut to loosen it. I've tried both ways and used WD-40, but I still can't get it off. Any suggestions? Thanks!

It is left hand thread and if the lock won't hold what you can try is put a 2x4 on the table and pull the head down against the wood and with a good socket and ratchet loosen it that way.. remember to tighten to loosen

How do you change the blade on a GMC 10 inch cmpund miter saw?


With the saw unplugged, push the spindle lock in on the motor side of the saw (a short black rod) while turning the blade by hand. The spindle lock will seat and hold the blade still so that you can use a wrench to loosen the nut that holds the blade on. Use the spindle lock again for tightening a new blade on the saw.

HOW TO CHANGE BLADE


Do you have the wrench that came with the saw? It should be slid in the back somewhere, there is a lock on the top that you hold the motor locked with, unplug the saw, turn the nut on the blade, start the saw down and grab the guard with your thumb to hold it and then lift it up all the way to slip the blade out. You should be all set.

How do i get guard out of way to replace blade..DW718


Make sure the saw is unplugged, manually move the blade guard up to it's fullest extension, push the arbor lock to make sure the arbor and blade do not spin (on front of saw motor housing), then wrench the nut holding the blade to remove. Remove the old blade, install new one and reassemble in reverse order. You can take the guard off completely if you choose, but it is not necessary. I hope this helps and good luck!

Need to change the blade on a craftsman 10'' miter saw model 137.23498, how do i do it?


First off, unplug the saw. No need to remove the guard, though you may have to loosen the cover over the lock nut to access it on some saws.
Look for an arbor lock button on the back side of the blade housing or motor, to lock the blade in place.
Hold that down and use a wrench to loosen the nut holding the blade on.
If you don't have an arbor lock, you'll have to wedge a 1x 4 or 2x4 under the blade and hold pressure on the handle to keep it from spinning while you loosen the lock nut. Once it's loose, spin it off and remove the washer and blade, replace and retighten the nut.
Should be pretty straightforward, as long as you have no power to the machine and lock the blade from turning, not too much can go wrong.
If you want to find an online manual with instructions for your saw, please try Sears online support site at www.managemyhome.com.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Solution for "changing blades on a milwaukee miter saw


Have you removed the old blade yet?

The blade lock my be broken off -- it should be a button on top of the motor.

Changing the saw blade on a Ryobi Mitre saw


There may be a push button type blade lock, and on many of these saws the retaining bolt for the blade is backwards threads, e.i., looking at the top of blade retaining bolt, turn it clockwise to loosen. This would normally tighten, but in the case of many of these saws, it loosens it.
