Where to attach both ends of the spring on a Skilsaw 5350 lower blade guard

I see from the parts list that the double L-shaped end of the spring goes into a hole in the lower guard. I don't know where to put the U-shaped end of the spring.

SOURCE: The spindle with star shaped end that attaches

the reason it sheard off is because you did not put the blade on right.
you have to hold blade in position untill you turn nut all the way up and make sure blade has the star part in the blade when you tighten it.
you have to buy a new shaft most come with the lower bearing on them.

SOURCE: Re~attaching spring on Maytag Dryer

Hi,
If I am not mistaken, your spring called a Idler spring should mount to the motor mount and the other end to the idler arm. But if you do not remove the drum from the dryer it will be hard to see how to re-install the spring. Remove the drum to make your task easier for your self.

Good Luck

Remove the blade, and you will normally see a hole in a lug on the inner ring of the guard and a slot with a bar across it on the upper inside of the fixed guard. Either end of the spring will hook through these. Sometimes (normally on DeWalt) the springs will be attached with a small self tapping screw with a washer at either end.

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

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.
