Question about Black & Decker Saws
My 3051 worm drive circular saw has he blade slipping
If it's an old saw try making a shim out of thin cardboard and placing it between the inner blade washer and the blade. The blades they're making these days are thinner than the older blades and some of the older saws have to be shimmed in order to prevent blade slippage.

Just for your information there are not many parts available for this model any longer.
With that said, it may be something rather simple. I get this type of problem all the time. Does the blade have the diamond punchout still in the blade or has it been punched out? Make sure that the the type of mount is the same as the hole for the blade. Another thing to check is to make sure the clamp washer is there under the blade. This is the part that will have a raised lip that goes through the hole in the blade just enough to center it. If that is missing you can replace it with a new one: part #143783-00 . If those 2 solutions do not work, it is your main drive gear. The worm is probably ok but the gear is probably shredded. This part is unavailable and renders your saw useless.
