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.

B & D #3051 worm drive saw: How do I access the return spring for blade guard?

Usually you will have to remove the blade guard to get access to that. There is usually a rubber stop with a screw going through it that you will have to remove, and a spiral spring clip on the inside of the hub of the blade guard that will also have to be removed and then you should be able to lift the blade guard off the saw. The spring will hook around the blade guard and the other end will hook to the saw housing. Hope this helps!

Need wiring diagram for black and decker 3051 type 3 worm drive saw

They don't show one on their site. Use a meter to see which two connections make when you pull the switch then wire one field connection to one terminal and a mains in wire to the other. The other connection should be the same. (Some times it goes side to side , some times it goes across. )

My Skil Worm Drive Skilsaw Blade stops when cutting

If the blade stops it could be from a loose hex bolt, flanges missing or you have a gear problem. UNPLUG tool and check the blade first. I would remove the fill screw on the gearcase and see if the oil has metal shavings in it, if it does the gears are worn allowing the blade to slip. If not I would recheck the blade. Did this suddenly happen and if so what did you do prior to your problem

The blade on my Delta 36-540 table saw is jammed in the 'down' position. The turn wheel will not move it. Thanks Walt

Is there a 'wheel lock' on the shaft? You may have to dismantle the saw arbor mechanism to free the worm gear drive. If the saw has been unused for a long time and exposed to excess moisture, the worm drive could have rusted tight. Good luck!

How do I change blade on Ryobi W-660 circular saw. I put some WD-40 on bolt, but it doesn't budge. To loosen, I turn clockwise?

I can't find that model number listed but generally a circular saw is standard thread, the mitre saw us left hand and a worm drive is also left hand thread.

Hi all. i have a circular saw which spins the blade ok untill th blade touches a surface. the blade then stops spinning but the motor carries on without stopping. i have removed the blade and i can touch...

If its a direct drive side mounted then the shaft has broken away from the motor. If is a worm-drive then your gears are worn. Either case, fixing it would cost more than it's worth, but more importantly, nothing is worth more than a safely operating circular saw. My suggestion is to ditch it and buy a new one as an insurance policy.

Circular saw Types

There are for types of circular saws available. 1. Worm Drive - The motor is in line with the blade, delivering enough torque to carve up wet lumber or saw through concrete, which makes a worm drive ideal for framing or major renovation jobs. With the handle farther back, a user can better resist kickback and steer the 16-pound saw through long rips. 2. Sidewinder - The motor sits alongside the blade, making for a lighter (11 pounds or less) saw, which is more maneuverable over a long day than a worm drive. 3. Small Sidewinder - Weight, balance, and handle size are all key features to consider when choosing a saw that fits you. For a slight-bodied person, a small model may be more appropriate than a full-size sidewinder. 4. Cordless - Battery-driven models have increased in size as their power packs have gained voltage, making them convenient tools out in the field or when the electricity's not on. However, cordless models still have limited run times and generate less torque than corded saws. 5. Trim Saw - For finish work or paneling, this is your best choice. blades range from 3½ to 412 inches.
