Have you checked to see if it is a reverse thread bolt.

I know on my Dewalt saws they are

Look at the bold or washer and see if there are arrows showing a reverse turn

Centering saw blade


The most important thing is that the blade and riving knife are centered with each other. If not, you may have to shim the riving knife.

The bolts that hold the carriage under the table are intentionally sloppy so that you can loosen them and align the blade/knife with the miter gauge slots.
Lay a long metal straight edge against the side of a carbide blade teeth with the blade all the way up, and make sure the straight edge is parallel with the miter gauge slots in the table. Then tighten the bolts on the underside.

I have the blade bolt off of my ryobi miter saw but the blade wont come off of the spindle


tap the blade on the back side to loosen it off. The wood sap has probably dried out and is acting like a glue on the back flange washer.

Change blade Makita LS1030 10-Inch Compound Miter saw


There is an 8mm bolt on the front of the guard. Loosen/remove this and the central guard mount will drop slightly. Behind the metal guard is a slide lock for the blade spindle. Push the lock bar and turn the blade untill it catches and is held solid. Then remove the blade fixing bolt and bobs your uncle. Alternativly, with all mitre saws, you can just pop an old bit of wood on the work base and then use the spannrer/allen key supplied to turn the blade so it bites into the wood as if you are trying to cut it. This will hold the blade steady and you will also be turning the bolt in the right direction.

How do you change the blade on a GMC 10 inch cmpund miter saw?


With the saw unplugged, push the spindle lock in on the motor side of the saw (a short black rod) while turning the blade by hand. The spindle lock will seat and hold the blade still so that you can use a wrench to loosen the nut that holds the blade on. Use the spindle lock again for tightening a new blade on the saw.

On a 10 inch power compound miter saw, I need to replace the blade. Does the blade bolt have left handed threads? Thanks


Place a finger nail in the thread near the end ot the shaft. If when rotated CW it comes off the shaft it is a left hand thread. My 10" Craftsman radial saw has a left hand thread on the blade shaft.

If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. HTH & Good Luck.

I have a craftsman table saw model 137.248830 and the blade is out of square with the miter. How do I adjust it?


You should have 4 bolts holding the trunnion on to the table, just loosen these bolts up a little, tap the trunnion with a hammer, the right way, put a straightedge on the blade fully extended and measure across the table to a dado slot, front and rear, tap it till it is exact, tighten bolts and check again. This should do it. You can check your fence the same way. hope this helps.

How do i change the blade on my delta 10" mitre saw


Exploded diagram for your SM100M miter saw is here.
User manual is here.

Page 20 covers blade change operation.

Make sure you unplug your saw! You need to remove a screw from the cover and rotate the cover to the rear. Use a hex wrench in the motor shaft to keep the saw blade from turning, and loosen the arbor nut with a 1/2" wrench. The arbor is reverse threaded, so you'll turn it clockwise to loosen, then counterclockwise to tighten it up after you have swapped the blade.
Rotate the cover back after that's done, and replace the screw.

If this was useful, please vote. Thanks.

I have 1 10 In compound miter hexbolt will not loosen and lock will not hold. Is it possible that the bolt is a left thread?


most mitre saw bolts that hold blade are left hand thread. If you overtightened you might have to use extra force to loosen, on occasion I have had to use an impact wrench to loosen.
