Question about Makita 9069 9" Angle Grinder

I can't find the lock nut tool

I normally always replace the blades with a towel, just turning the blade in the opposite direction when locked. But this time i accidentally grinded of too much of the metal blade (it is totally gone) and seem not to get enough crip without a blade sticking out to twist. Any other recommendations, or do i have to look for a replacement lock nut tool?

You should be able to use a wrench, unless you have the style that needs a spanner (ring with 2 holes in it). Then, you will need the wrench to fit it. I made one with a piece of 1/8" flatbar and 2 #10 bolts. It isn't pretty but it works.

You could use a pair of fine needle nose locking pliers [vise grips] and possibly be able to get enough of a bite to do it.

Northern Tool 10" compound miter saw. How do I change the blade?


remove the power cord from the socket in the wall first
if there is a small hole in the blade , place a phillips screw driver in that hole and turn until the driver is locked against the depth guard
use the correct size spanner /socket and undo the spindle nut holding the blade on
if there is no hole ,then place the screw driver in the teeth of the blade to lock it

the motor will spin so that the teeth cut against the direction of cut ( up into the guard or up through the depth guard ( blades normally have a arrow for rotation direction)
tighten the spindle nut and if no hole in the blade use a hammer and hit the spanner with a hard rap

How replace blade on 7 1/4 circular saw - Milwaukee


UNPLUG THE SAW first!! Look for the blade lock on the top or front of the motor body, Hold the lock button down while turning the blade nut with a wrench. After a bit you'll feel the lock button engage and hold the blade firm. Rotate the the wrench counter clockwise and remove the nut, Slide the blade out from under the guard and replace with a new one. Reinstall the nut following the above procedure.

Need to know how to get the blade off the miter saw to replace the blade


First, make sure it's unplugged.

On many saws the guard mechanism partially covers the bolt that holds the blade in place. Loosen and move the part out of the way as recommended by the manufacturer. On this saw you loosen a screw and then slide the mechanism up and towards the rear.

Press the spindle lock to lock the blade in place. Turn the bolt clockwise - opposite the normal direction - to loosen and remove it. Remove the outer blade washer and the blade. Leave the inner blade washer in place. Wipe a drop of oil on the surfaces of the blade washers that touch the blade.

Put the blade on the saw so that the teeth point down. Putting the blade on with the teeth facing in the other direction can result in serious injury. Put the outer blade washer in place. Turn the bolt counterclockwise until it is snug, plus another 1/8 to 1/4 turn. Replace the cover and you're finished.

How do I change the blade on a skilsaw 5250 2 1/4 hp 7 1/4 in. circular saw... there is no "locking mechanism" on this model? is this a "left-handed" bolt, Do I turn it...


Here is what you do, this is common on some skill saws, you of course make sure is unplugged, get your self a stick ( like a small broom handle type, or a piece of 1 by 2 chuck or wood, or anything of about that size. Put saw on its side, with the blade side toward you to get access to the nut to take off blade. As you know the blades go down( clockwise when operating to cut wood) and of course now, you have the problem of taking off the blade counter clockwise because the angle of the blades are going back words, ( nothing to grab on to the wood, to put a wrench on going counter clock wise to take nut off. What the idea for you and normal way is this, as the saw is on the side, with the nut/blade side toward you, you wedge the piece of wood, between the left top side of blade under the frame of the blade, meaning you are wedging it in, so the blade when turning the nut counter clockwise to unscrew, will stay in place. Think of it as wedging the blade with a chunk of wood, so it will not move. AGAIN, it comes off (nut) counter clockwise, so, you are just using this wood chunk to keep blade from moving, and then to put new blade on, just reverse procedure. Thanks Mike

I need to rplce the blade on a 10 inch wet saw. The nut is extremely tight and I want to make sure I am turning it in the correct direction. If I want to loosen the nut, do I turn it in the opposite...


In most tile saws it is a clockwise thread for tightening, and anti-clockwise to undo the nut (from looking at the blade with the nut facing you) If you have a vice it is sometimes best to clamp the the blade into the vice with the tool resting on top, to help when undoing the nut. Take caution when doing this, do not over tighten the vice as it could buckle the blade and as always when changing a blade disconnect the tool from any power supply. Hope this was of help to you.

To remove the blade, is the nut right or left-hand threads? Is there a blade lock?


With any circular saw, table saw, metal cut off saw, mitre saw etc the nut always tightens against the direction of rotation and loosens the opposite way

The red saftey lock button will not lock blade in place how can i get the blade off? Ive tryed putting saw blade in a vice and then using socket wrench to loosen nut ive broke two sockets.


Chances are you are turning the nut the wrong direction. The old addage "lefty loosey, righty tighty" does not apply to saw blades. You must turn the socket "clockwise" to loosen, which is opposite to normal nuts and bolts. Try slipping a screwdriver between the teeth of the saw. It should catch on the shoe of the saw as you loosen the nut.

Can't get the blade to stay on track


There is an adjustment you can make to the top guide wheel to make the blade stay on track. There is a screw with a lock nut just beneath the main bearing for the top wheel that is used to "tilt" that wheel to allow the blade to stay where it is suppose to. This needs adjustment periodically due to normal wear in the bearings or maybe due to a blade which is made a little different than the last one that was on there. Loosen the lock nut, then turn the adjusting screw to tilt the wheel in the direction needed to keep the blade on. Not much adjustment is usually needed. After turning the screw, jog the motor on briefly (with the blade on) and check how it runs. Keep adjusting until you get it running true. Lock the nut and you should be good.
Good Luck. Be Careful while jogging the motor to check the runout, as you will need to do this with the guards out of place.

There is not a lock on this saw. If the blade is to tight to hold by hand you need to use an impact wrench. It will loosen the nut before the blade has time to start spinning.

HOW TO GET BRUSH CUTTER OFF FS 55


Look at the top of the head (where the brush cutter is) find the small hole about 3/16 diameter. Insert an allen wrench or a large nail, or anything else that will fit in the hole almost the same size as the hole. While putting a little downward pressure on this "tool" turn you blade slowly by hand until you feel the tool slide into the locking slot, this will hold the blade from turning. Keeping it in this position, take a socket and ratchet on the nut that is holding the blade and loosen and remove it. THE NUT HAS LEFT HAND THREADS SO TURN IT OPPOSITE OF WHAT YOU NORMALLY WOULD TO REMOVE IT!!!!
