Blade wont cut all the way down when cutting baseboard

the maximum cutting depth of a circular saw is the distance from the teeth to the drive washer hub of the saw blade
so on a 7 1/2 saw the effective cut would be less than 3"
if your base board is thicker than that get a bigger saw
it the board is a lot less adjust the cut depth adjustment for the saw base

How do i replace blade on kobalt 12dual bevil miter saw?

I don't know the model of saw you have but they are made for fairly rapid and uncomplicated blade changes as users will change the blade fairly often as they cut different materials.

Some saws have a spindle lock which once engaged means the bolt retaining the blade can be loosened with a single wrench and some saws need the spindle holding with a second wrench which is usually fairly thin, in the order of 3 or 4mm, to engage on two narrow flats machined on the spindle.

The blade changing process is a fairly intuitive one and if you take the time to turn the saw over and observe how it is assembled I think you will soon get the idea.

Good luck!

How do you change the saw blade on a kobalt keyhole saw?

You'll need a flat head screw driver and a pair of protective gloves. This saw resembles a gun. There are 3 key points to review. The first is in the front of the saw, there are 2 pivot points (one sits on top and other is on the side). They resemble dead bolt locks. The second point is in the middle, and resembles a round button. The last point is towards the back of the gun, sand resembles larger dead bolt lock.

Put on your protective gloves.

The change the blade, place the saw, blade side up on a steady surface. With your left hand, hold the saw blade down. Use the screw driver with your right hand and wedge the screw driver between the last point and the blade. Push down on the screw driver to create enough leverage to push the blade forward, past the final point. The blade will shift out of position, beyond the current locked position, and release the blade. It may need a little push, but it will eventually pop out of it's current position. Be careful when it unlocks, my saw blade flew across the room! Hope this helps.
