That is because you need to hold the blade(s) still when torquing loose the blade bolts. Some of those are nasty to "crack" loose. But with the proper "6 point" socket (12 point is not recommended at ALL!) and leverage? Piece o' cake! Also craftsman does make a special tool to lock the blades down to remove them. There are also generic ones for riding type mowers (I've seen them at Lowe's) blade removal. Preventing the crankshaft from spinning is paramount to getting the blades off (Not to mention safe?) It depends on your level of mechanical expertise. Experienced? then you can do it, Not experienced? Go get the special tool to prevent the blades from spinning. Life is so much easier when you got the right tool for the job!

How to remove a blade from a 2.5 hp sears table 10 inch tablesaw


First and foremost unplug the unit from the receptacle. Raise the blade as high as it will go and have it set to 0 degrees in a vertical position. Remove the throat plate (usually red) so you can access the bolt holding the blade in place. The saw came with a wrench for this purpose. It may have even come with 2 wrenches. One to remove the bolt holding the blade on and another to place behind the blade on the shaft to hold the motor. If it only has one wrench look for a small hole in the blade and use a screwdriver to keep the blade from turning. If there is no tool or hole to hold the blade then use a heavy scrap piece of wood to hold the blade while you remove the bolt. As you remove the blade notice the direction the teeth are pointing and put the new blade on turning in the same direction. You just reverse the procedure to put the new blade on. NOTE: Some saws have a motor lock that locks the motor and blade in position making it easier to change the blade. Just be very careful as it is easy to cut yourself on the blade.

The smaller blade lays on top of the larger blade. align two blades together. Hold the blade compartment in your hand upward with smaller blade on top of the larger blade. On the clipper in between the two hole where screws go there is a small arm with a round shaped tip. Put the base on to the blades a fixing the round shaped arm into the blades ensure proper fitting. With hand holding the clipper turn over while thumb is holding the blades in place and replace screws.

Can not remove the old blade


1. Unplug the saw.
2. Locate the blade lock button used to lock the motor shaft when changing a blade. For your saw, this button is usually located on the left side of the blade guard somewhere around the motor housing.
3. Push the button while rotating the blade until the button engages and the blade will no longer turn.
4. Use the wrench that came with the saw (or another wrench) to loosen and remove the blade bolt. For your saw the bolt should have standard right hand threads which means you loosen the bolt by turning it counter clock-wise.
5. Remove the old blade and replace it with a new blade of the same mounting type. Some blades have a round through hole and some blades have a diamond through hole.
6. Re-install the blade bolt and tighten clock-wise while holding the blade lock button down.

How to change the saw blade


Adjustments
LARGEHEXWRENCH
TO REPLACeTHE BLADE
See Figures 43 - 45.
 Unplug the saw.
 Lower the saw blade, raise the blade guard, and remove the throat plate.
 Make sure the bevel locking lever is securely pushed to the left. Raise the saw blade to its full height by turning the height/bevel adjusting handwheel clockwise.
 Using the smaller hex wrench, insert the flat open end into the flats on the arbor shaft.
 Insert the closed end of the larger hex wrench over the hex nut. Holding both wrenches firmly, pull the larger wrench forward to the front of the machine. Make sure the blade nut is securely tightened. Do not overtighten.
Check all clearances for free blade rotation. See To Set the Scale to the Blade. In cutting operations, the scale will be set to the side of the blade where the cut will be measured and made.
To replace the blade with an accessory blade, follow the instructions provided with the accessory.
To install a standard blade:
 Place the new blade on the arbor shaft (the teeth must point down toward the front of the saw to work properly).
 Place the blade washer and the blade nut over the blade arbor. Be sure the dome side of the blade washer faces out from the blade and that all items are snug against the arbor housing. Tighten securely.

Cant remove blade on lawn mower


Follow directions. See if this works;

Blade Maintenance
�� Warning! Switch off, remove the isolator
key, battery and grassbox before adjusting
or cleaning.
�� Always wear gardening gloves when handling
or working near the sharp blades.
Turn the machine on its right side and inspect
the blade; if blunt or damaged, replace.
Use the following procedure to remove and replace
the blade:
Insert a screwdriver into hole 26 to lock the
drive. Hold the blade 30 using gardening gloves
(not provided) and use a spanner (not provided)
to remove the blade bolt 29, blade washer 28
and blade 30.
Fit the blade 30, blade washer 28 and the blade
bolt 29. Ensure that the blade is the correct way
up (so that this symbol can be seen located
as in figure I) and tighten the bolt 29 firmly.
Ensure the screwdriver is removed before attempting
to turn the machine on.

If this procedure does not work then try the following;

It is not uncommon for the blade bolt to become seized onto the shaft due to all the gunk and moisture on the underside of the deck. Try to soak the bolt several times over with penetrating oil ( WD 40, PB Blaster, etc). Spray the bolt head, the top of the blade where it contacts the shaft, etc. Do this several times and let the penetrating oil soak in. Hit the bolt head gently several times with a hammer to loosen up the corrosion. Then try to remove the bolt per directions.
Hope this helps, if so Please rate, Thanks, and Good Luck!

Wait? Why would you want to remove the blade? Are they broken? Is the fan unbalanced? Try cleaning the blade. If the fan still wobbles, try tightening the screws.
