What direction does the blade nut turn to loosen and remove a table saw blade on the Bosch 4000 ? Counter-Clockwise?


Hi John:
Depends on which side of the spindle it is mounted on.
Give this a try:
- Unplug the saw
- Set a piece of wood on the table as if you were going to cut it, and slide it into the blade so that it jams the teeth.
- Use your wrench to rotate the nut in the direction of rotation.
That should loosen it..
Cheers.

Northern Tool 10" compound miter saw. How do I change the blade?


remove the power cord from the socket in the wall first
if there is a small hole in the blade , place a phillips screw driver in that hole and turn until the driver is locked against the depth guard
use the correct size spanner /socket and undo the spindle nut holding the blade on
if there is no hole ,then place the screw driver in the teeth of the blade to lock it

the motor will spin so that the teeth cut against the direction of cut ( up into the guard or up through the depth guard ( blades normally have a arrow for rotation direction)
tighten the spindle nut and if no hole in the blade use a hammer and hit the spanner with a hard rap

How do you change a blade on model 36-075


Lots of saws have left hand threads on the nut that holds the blade in place. It is designed so that if the saw starts up and the nut isn't snug, the nut and the blade slipping on the turning arbor would tend to tighten the nut as they slip against the force of the spinning arbor.
1. Unplug the saw.
2. Hold on to the blade tightly with one hand.
3. Put the wrench on the arbor nut and turn it in the direction you would turn it as if the wrench were turning the blade to cut wood.

If you've previously overtightened the blade, jamb a piece of wood against the teeth and the saw table top and then follow step 3.

If the motor is on the left side of the blade as you face the saw, then it's a standard right hand nut.
If the motor is on the right side of the blade as you face the saw, then its a left handed nut.

Replace blade


Usually, but not always, they turn clockwise so that the rotation does not unscrew the lock bolt or nut. If the lock bolt or nut is reverse thread, it probably turns counter-clockwise.

Consider including more details in your questions, it makes answering them specifically, easier.

Which way does the nut turn to loosen blade on a luds mitre saw


On any saw blade, you will loosen the nut (or bolt) in the direction that the teeth of the blade are pointed. This is because any saw must be designed so that the force of the material being cut pushes against the blade in the direction that would tighten the blade. So, on a miter saw with the blade on the right, when viewing the blade from the right the teeth are pointing counter-clockwise (or left), so you loosen to the left. On the other hand, a radial arm saw or a circular saw where the blade turns clockwise, loosening will be to the right. Good luck.

How do I change the blade on a skilsaw 5250 2 1/4 hp 7 1/4 in. circular saw... there is no "locking mechanism" on this model? is this a "left-handed" bolt, Do I turn it...


Here is what you do, this is common on some skill saws, you of course make sure is unplugged, get your self a stick ( like a small broom handle type, or a piece of 1 by 2 chuck or wood, or anything of about that size. Put saw on its side, with the blade side toward you to get access to the nut to take off blade. As you know the blades go down( clockwise when operating to cut wood) and of course now, you have the problem of taking off the blade counter clockwise because the angle of the blades are going back words, ( nothing to grab on to the wood, to put a wrench on going counter clock wise to take nut off. What the idea for you and normal way is this, as the saw is on the side, with the nut/blade side toward you, you wedge the piece of wood, between the left top side of blade under the frame of the blade, meaning you are wedging it in, so the blade when turning the nut counter clockwise to unscrew, will stay in place. Think of it as wedging the blade with a chunk of wood, so it will not move. AGAIN, it comes off (nut) counter clockwise, so, you are just using this wood chunk to keep blade from moving, and then to put new blade on, just reverse procedure. Thanks Mike

To remove the circular saw, which way do you turn the nut hold the blade on the saw?


For any saw blade or grinding wheel, the rule is this. Pushing against the points of the teeth should be the direction that tightens the nut. So you must loosen it in the same direction that the blade spins. For example, if your saw blade is on the right side of your saw, then the blade spins counterclockwise, and the wood pushes against blade clockwise - so you turn it counterclockwise to loosen it (which is in the same direction that the blade spins.). If the blade is on the left side of the saw, you loosen it clockwise. Good luck, Al K

How to tighten the blade on a 7 1/4 inch Sears power hand saw?


The nut that clamps the blade on has left hand threads so you have to tighten it in a counter-clockwise direction and you will have to use a screwdriver or similar object to put in one of the teeth to keep the blade from turning. Some blades have a ho;le in them for this purpose and if so you can use a big nail to get the same result. good luck

I need to change the blade on my 10 in. tabel saw,


OK. first of all unplug it. Then remove the plate that surrounds the blade. Wrenches came with the saw so hopefully you still have them.
You need two special wrenches which are sold at any sears hardware store if you don't have a set. The only thing to remember is that the outer nut has reverse threads so turn it clockwise to loosen it and counter clockwise to tighten it. Note the direction the saw teeth point in and duplicate that with the new blade.

Get back if you have any other questions.
