Question about Sears Saws
Looking for manual& or parts book for Sears model#103.0205 circular saw
Earlier comment 103.0205 Table Saws does not need lubrication is simply wrong.
The103.0202, 103.0203, 103.0305 Craftsman Companion Table Saws main Arbor axle DOES have to lubricated or else the axle bearing will quickly loosen side-to-side or vertically and fail to provide accurate saw cuts.
FWIW, Sears no longer sells Arbor Axle replacement parts... The Table Saw Arbor axle and Bearing Housing cannot use sealed bearings unless the saw case is re-milled and extensively modified. There are 2 Oil Hole Plugs (part# 475-32) that need to be opened and oil applied so the Arbor axle shaft does not get scored or worn.
I use 30wt motor oil to relube the Arbor Axle Shaft depending on amount of use, temperature, and axle rotation stiffness.
Remember, the higher the RPM speed of the table saw motor and/or the longer the use, the more frequently you may need to relube the Arbor Axle Bearing!

ONE WAY IS TO TAKE A PAIR OF VISE-GRIP PLIERS ,LOCK THEM ONTO THE BLADE VERY TIGHT WHEN THEY TURN UP AGAINST THE BED OF THE SAW YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO REMOVE THE BOLT THAT HOLDS THE BLADE WORKS WELL DID IT LOTS ( bear in mind some of the bolts are left hand threaded so if does not go one way try the other )

I have repaired many craftsman circular saws over the years and find that they share some parts with other brands. When sears drops a model number you must try to discover who made it for them. You did not list a model number, however when I need to identify a saw w/o the number I look at old part breakdowns and look on ebay for similar looking saws. Try and identify which manufacture made it for sears. Many were made by skill over the years so I start there. Once I find a good match, I check for available new parts. If not available, I check pawn shops and small tool repair shops for used parts, even burned out armature then have it rewound at www.eurton.com If you value your old saw take the extra time to look around, if not buy a good used saw at a pawn shop. I prefer Makita or Milwaukee good used about 40-70$; good used craftsman 20-30$, take a good look at the armature commutator and check that the arbor bearing is tight. Good Luck and email if you have questions.

Sorry , but go buy a new saw. Your not going to find an aftermarket
dealer that carries this switch.
Trying to rig some other switch is not worth the trouble over buying a new one. If the switch is not available, then the saw is old.
Craftsman Evolv 12 Amp 7-in Circular Saw 35.00 dollars.

Unplug it and loosen the bolt in the middle of the blade. It's a standard thread, so turn it lefty-loosey. But you need to hold the blade from turning. That's easy by putting a screwdriver in front of a blade tooth, under the sole plate. Let the sole plate prevent the screwdriver from rising up with the blade as you turn the bolt. If your current blade has small teeth (like a plywood blade) then you can raise the sole plate as for a maximum depth of cut, then push the saw against the front edge of a workbench (or block of wood somehow held still) as if you were going to cut it. Before you remove the bolt, take note of the exact orientation of the washer (or washers)so you can replace them the same way.
