    If you are looking at the saw on the right side under the handel you have a button you need to push that in as you loosen the blade. The nut that holds the blade on is reverse thread. So you will need to turn counter clockwise.

    I know this is not your saw but on page 12 will show you how to remove the blade.

    It's that outer flange that won't come off. Everything else I have done. I push the pin to lock it while I'm unscrewing the hex nut, it's off. I can even turn the blade with the locking pin depressed, still the blade won't come off, it just rotates.

    Sounds like the outer ring has a little rust on it holding it in place try to tap the blade off with a piece of wood or light hammer.

Need to know how to change blade on rockwell motorized miter saw model 34-010 8' blade

Some blades have a little hole; in them to put a small screwdriver or even a nail in to hold the blade when you put a wrench on it to loosen the nut. If there is no hole I use a small screwdriver and put it in the teeth to hold as I turn the nut out Mine has a cover you have to undo before taking the blade off.

Need to replace a miter saw blade on Black & Decker saw

If you don't have a manual, you can contact Dewalt, and they will get you one or help you. UNPLUG THE SAW!! , if your saw has a blade lock, engage it, if it doesn't hold the saw firmly on a scrap piece of wood. Then use the correct wrench and loosen the retaining nut. Take the nut off, remove the blade

How do I assemble the blade guard for my Makita Miter Saw Model LS1030? I accidentally disassembled the guard it when changing to a new saw blade. I cant figure out how to get the tension spring back in...

lay the spring into the plastic safety cover, you will see a catch for one portion of the spring, the cover plate goes over it and there is a tab on it to catch the loose end and then the center plate which screws on to hold everything in place, check by turning the plate that holds it onto the saw for free movement. You can go to and in the header area on the right type in your model number ls1030n and you can download or look at a breakdown to see what I am talking about. Let me know if you need more assistance, just found your question.

Is there an arbour lock on this saw so that I can tighten the bolt after putting on a new blade?

i cant tell you for sure, but, usually just put a piece of wood on the plate or deck, pull the saw down and have the blade make contact with the wood. tighten the nut and hold downward pressure

How do i get guard out of way to replace blade..DW718

Make sure the saw is unplugged, manually move the blade guard up to it's fullest extension, push the arbor lock to make sure the arbor and blade do not spin (on front of saw motor housing), then wrench the nut holding the blade to remove. Remove the old blade, install new one and reassemble in reverse order. You can take the guard off completely if you choose, but it is not necessary. I hope this helps and good luck!

Change blade miter saw

Un-plug the saw. Remove the screws holding the side saw guard in place. Look at the center of the saw blade for the nut holding it in place. Take a socket wrench that fits the nut and loosen it. You'll need to take a scrap piece of wood 2x4, and jamb the teeth of the blade into it while loosening the nut. The nut will come off first and then a washer/spacer.

Reverse the order for installing the new blade. Make sure you use the proper size diameter blade (10 inch) and mounting hole in the replacement blade. Also, use the provided washer/spacers that were on the original blade and secure the nut. Spin by hand to see if everything clears. Mount the protective guard back on. Plug in the saw and test cut .

Good luck. If you are still unsure - ask a handy neighbor to help. It takes about 5 minutes to complete this task.

How do I replace my mitre saw blade?

It should still easily fit a 5/8" blade. The arbor shape shouldnt have any effect on the type of arbor hole needed on the saw blade (only round arbor holes are made on saw blades. You will probably find the arbor securing nut has a shape that fits into the flat gaps between the saw blade and the arbor when fixed. So grab a 5/8" round arbor saw blade and give it a go. It should work fine.
It is the arbor nut that secures the blade onto the arbor via friction which holds it on.
