Question about Craftsman Measuring Tools & Sensors
I have a new Craftsman 5.5 amp Scrolling Sabre Saw with LaserTrac® &amp; Worklight Model#17256.. I cannot get any blade to lock into the quick change lock. The blade will not go past the T to lock into place. I have tried in every setting with multiple blades.

Usually there is a piece of metal around the motor you use to lock the motor by pushing it in then you can use a wrench to loosen the bolt holding the blade on. make sure you put the new blade in the same way the old one is.

SOURCE: loose replacement blade
First of all unplug the miter saw and then remove the blade. Now examine the saw to check the direction of rotation. Be sure you are putting the blade on so that the rotation arrow on the blade is pointing in the same direction as the rotation of the tool. Now reassemble. Be sure to use some muscle to put the blade on fairly tight. Now when you use the miter saw let the blade do the cutting, do not overwork the tool by trying to cut too fast. good luck.

Crank the blade up to its highest level using the knob on the side, then on the front of the saw loosen the lever and tilt the blade to whatever angle you want, using the gauge on the front as your guide. You can always go online to the Skil website and download a manual, or contact them about sending you one.

Have you removed the old blade yet?
The blade lock my be broken off -- it should be a button on top of the motor.
This saw has left hand threads -- turn clockwise to loosen the bolt/nut.
If you can't find the blade lock, lower the saw onto a piece of wood llike a 2x4 to keep the blade from turning.

It should still easily fit a 5/8" blade. The arbor shape shouldnt have any effect on the type of arbor hole needed on the saw blade (only round arbor holes are made on saw blades. You will probably find the arbor securing nut has a shape that fits into the flat gaps between the saw blade and the arbor when fixed. So grab a 5/8" round arbor saw blade and give it a go. It should work fine.
It is the arbor nut that secures the blade onto the arbor via friction which holds it on.
