Question about Sears Craftsman 7-1/4 in. Circular Saw with LaserTrac and 5 Bonus Blades
When the saw is put under a moderate to heavy load it will cut a few inches and then the blade stops but the motor continues to run without any noticable reduction in RPMs. When I back off the blade starts up again.
There should be a special washer between the bolt (that holds the blade on) and the blade. If the arbor has a flat side on it, then the washer should have a matching hole so that the washer cannot turn independently of the arbor. Or, some saws use a spring washer which is cupped and becomes flattened against the blade as the bolt is tightened. If you have the first type of washer, perhaps the bolt is just not tight enough. If you have the second type of washer, perhaps the washer is backwards. If you have neither type of washer, you need one.

Make sure your arbor is tight,the bolt that holds the blade on ,28 years of building houses and dewalt is a good saw but the base plate bends easy if you get 1 make sure you get a steel base plate
