The blade should be installed with the teeth tips facing the front of the saw. Place the blade on the arbor shaft, then the blade washer and then thread the lock bolt in the arbor.

Please go to this site and download a copy of the manual for your saw. Just enter your model number. Power saws are dangerous and you should refer to the users manual for safety info before using. I hope this helps.

How to reassemble blades on wahl stable pro 8800

Do you have more parts in your hand than 2x screws and 2x blade parts? If no then pop the small cutter blade onto the plastic blade drive with the drive engaged into the diamond shaped hole in the cutter blade. Make sure you put the cutter blade on with the teeth facing forwards and the correct way up. The top side (goes towards clipper) is pretty much flat except where teeth taper. Next lubricate the small cutter where it is going to touch the large comb blade when you fit it. Now put the comb blade on and fit the 2 screws. Line up the blades & tighten the screws.

How to remove arbor bolt to change blade

Best thing to do is to just rest the blade teeth against a peice of scrap wood, and use the allen key/spanner to undo the bolt. As the bolt undoes in the direction of the cut, the blade teeth should dig in and stop it turning. If the blade lock isn't working anymore, it could mean that it has broken inside, so be careful, incase there is a bit of loose metal in the gearbox, it will be quite catastrophic if it gets caught in the gears.

How to put the blade into the black and decker 3.4 amp powered handsaw

#1) You have to locate the blade release button on the saw (see your manual). The opposite side of the release button is a screw-like OVAL shaped PIN. To insert the blade, the direction( or position) of this OVAL shaped PIN has to match the OVAL shaped hole in the blade. You could use a screw driver to change the direction/position of this OVAL shaped pin. You have to push down the release button when you use the screw driver to turn.

#2) Hold the blade in Vertical position in your right hand. The "Oval" hole is on top. The teeth is facing your left hand. You will see that the "oval" hole on the top of the blade is a "horizontal" oval.

#3) Hold the saw (handle) in your left hand as if you were going to saw using your left hand.
Now peek through the hole of the saw and find the direction of the OVAL PIN. It has to be a "horizontal" (or lied down) OVAL. If it is not, use the screw driver to adjust it.

#4) Hold the blade using your right hand. Oval hole on top, teeth facing your left hand. Insert
the blade from the bottom of the saw. What you needed to do is to insert the PIN into the hole
of the blade. When you inserted the pin into the hole of the blade, slowly turned the blade upward, the blade will lock by itself.

Need to know how to get the blade off the miter saw to replace the blade

First, make sure it's unplugged.

On many saws the guard mechanism partially covers the bolt that holds the blade in place. Loosen and move the part out of the way as recommended by the manufacturer. On this saw you loosen a screw and then slide the mechanism up and towards the rear.

Press the spindle lock to lock the blade in place. Turn the bolt clockwise - opposite the normal direction - to loosen and remove it. Remove the outer blade washer and the blade. Leave the inner blade washer in place. Wipe a drop of oil on the surfaces of the blade washers that touch the blade.

Put the blade on the saw so that the teeth point down. Putting the blade on with the teeth facing in the other direction can result in serious injury. Put the outer blade washer in place. Turn the bolt counterclockwise until it is snug, plus another 1/8 to 1/4 turn. Replace the cover and you're finished.

You can first try a strong magnet. Another trick is to use a coping saw blade. The teeth of the blade face one direction and it is small enough to insert it into the lock. As you pull out the blade (make sure the teeth are facing towards you), the teeth will grab the key. Good luck!

The blade is turning backwards

That is physically not possible!

1. immediatelly switch off saw
2. remove cord from the plug
3. remove blade from machine
4. reverse blade 180degree and install it in direction of the rotation! if you look at saw from the blade side, rotation is clockwise!!! and cutting edge of teh teeth should point clockwise!
5. install and tighten the blade
6. plug in and switch in short burst only, check if it is rotating in proper direction and blade have teeth in proper direction
7. make test cut

Do not forget that this is not a toy, blade on circular saw cut through wood, metal and your fingers... always wear googles or eye/face protection shield, you have only two eyes and no spares...

Enjoy your woodworking experience! Always observe safety and machine rules.

Hope this allow you to fix the problem. Please leave note how did you go.

Oster clippers blade

John! No Problem!
First put the bigger of the two blades witht the size/number facing down, put the cutter on top. (with the side with the flat side of the teeth facing down) Then put the tongue guide inside the tension spring, make sure the tension spring rail is on the tension rail and place them on top of the cutter. To see which bits these are go to:
This picture whows the front and back, it differs slightly from your blade, but its same meat different gravy!

Hold all this together with your finger and thumb, flip it over and scre the whole lot together!

Had my #10 blade sharpened and now have several probs w blade and

You may know the first part of this, but...
Ordinarily, the blades are removed and replaced as follows:
There is a small gun-metal colored bar at the very rear, just below the back of the blade. It pushes inward, in the direction of the blade. Push it firmly in and pull up on the teeth of the blade. It should pop upward. You can then remove the blade from the tongue that it sits upon. When you want to put it back, slide the blade back on the tongue, then, WITH THE MOTOR TURNED ON, push the blade down to its seated position. It will click into place.
In your case the retaining clip may have broken off. With the blade removed, push that same gun metal colored bar in. You should see the other end of it move in unison just behind the nylon cog that moves the blades when they are installed. Check the tip of that other end to see that the "turned back on itself" rounded portion is there. That's what holds the blade on. If it is missing, you will have to replace the part (the tongue part has to be removed to do so since the retaining clip part is under it, with a small spring holding it in place). A new one can be obtained, I think, at:

You say that you had the blade sharpened. By someone who knew what he or she was doing, I hope. It is possible that whoever sharpened it, reassembled it improperly so that the area where the retaining clip connects is too far toward the rear of the blade (opposite the teeth) and the clip is unable to click over it into place. If you look at the back of the blade, you will see the small slot just about in the center where the nylon drive cog fits to move the blade back and forth when it is mounted. Just below that there is a plate with two tabs extending toward the teeth. The part of that plate (toward the teeth) that has a slight indentation is where the retaining clip clicks into place. If it is not doing so, then either the clip is broken or the blades are not assembled properly. You can try (careful blade assembly is tricky in regard to getting them straight) to loosen the two screws and very carefully move that plate enough (very little should be required) toward the teeth so that the clip will hold. I would make very sure that the clip is not broken before doing that.

Hope this is helpful to you.

Yeah I took mine apart and should have taken a picture of it before I did so. (Not too smart if I do say so.)
I'll put the steps here to assist, but here's a link to a small picture of it.
The parts SHOULD go together in this order.
1. Start with wavy shaft standing on the plastic sleeve.
2. Slide the plate on the shaft.
3. Put the wheel on the plate so that it locks in place.
4. Put one of the rotating blades on the shaft so that it will cut in a clockwise direction. (as it is in the pic) Note that the rotating blades are offset slightly. I have no idea which order they go. Maybe first cut on the inside last cut on the outside. Dunno'.
5. Place one of the large nylon stepped washer with the 2 levels on the shaft with the smaller end facing up. (like the pic)
6. Remove the pin from the stationary blade holder as you will need one of those blades next. Remember how it was assembled or take a picture. :)
7. Place the stationary blade on the nylon spacer so that it will cut in a counter clockwise direction. (opposite to the direction of the pic above and toward the blade you already installed.)
8. Put a wavy washer on next.
9. Then put the angled plate thingy (I have nothing else to call it. It's called a damper in the link.) Place it on so that the edge is downward and the flat side it facing up. You want to place it like the picture on the left.
10. Another wavy washer.
11. Another one of the rotating blades in the same direction as the last one.
12. Place the other large nylon stepped washer on the shaft with the small end facing up like the last one.
13. Put the last stationary blade on in the same direction as the first one.
14. Another wavy washer.
15. Put the last angled plate thingy on in the same direction as the first one.
16. Another wavy washer.
17. The last rotating blade... Again in the same direction as the last 2.
18. Put the last washer with only one step on the shaft. (Looks like a top hat.)
19. FINALLY, put the lock washer on before you have a chance to knock it over and lose all the pieces :P
20. Put the blade anchor on the stationary blades in the same direction that you took it off. The pointier edge should be facing counter clockwise. You should only be able to slide the pin in place from the top.

21. I really hope that this helps someone. This thing is DAMN tricky to put back together. Make sure that the thing rotates easily by hand before sliding it back into your freezer. I expect that if something isn't quite right the motor will just bend the bar or other pieces. After all, it does crush ice!!!

Good luck.
