The spindle lock should be a short rod that sticks out on the motor side of the saw. Push this in and rotate the blade until the rod pushes in and locks the spindle. This will hold it tight so you can use a wrench on the nut that holds the blade on.

How do i replace blade on kobalt 12dual bevil miter saw?


I don't know the model of saw you have but they are made for fairly rapid and uncomplicated blade changes as users will change the blade fairly often as they cut different materials.

Some saws have a spindle lock which once engaged means the bolt retaining the blade can be loosened with a single wrench and some saws need the spindle holding with a second wrench which is usually fairly thin, in the order of 3 or 4mm, to engage on two narrow flats machined on the spindle.

The blade changing process is a fairly intuitive one and if you take the time to turn the saw over and observe how it is assembled I think you will soon get the idea.

Good luck!

New DUET tub - spindle too short so lock nut not fully engaged


Locktite, TM, is an excellent choice, as long as the nut engages three full turns on the threads. alternatively, if there is sufficient thread to use two pal nuts tightened against each other. The biggest problem is that to hold the retaining nut, being thin, requires a thin wrench, while the locking nut can use a regular wrench. If there is enough thread on the shaft for teo pal nuts, the regular locking nut may not engage the locking insert, in which I would use the Locktite. Are you sure you didn't install a thrust washer on the wrong side of the bearing mount, possibly not even intended but worth checking,

I have a Porter Cable biscuit jointer, model 527 and I'm an amateur woodworker, NOT a mechanic. I can't locate my owner's manual on this tool and have the smaller blade in the tool currently. ...


Model 557 is shipped with a 4" diameter blade installed. This blade is used
for all operations except for the "FF" biscuit. The "FF" biscuit requires that
the 2" blade (furnished with the tool), be installed as follows:
DISCONNECT TOOL FROM POWER SOURCE.
1. Loosen four blade cover retaining screws (A) Fig. 10, and remove blade
cover.
2. Depress and hold spindle lock button (B) Fig. 11, while rotating blade by
hand until spindle lock engages.
3. Continue to hold spindle lock button while using the 5/32" hex wrench
(furnished with tool), to remove blade retaining bolt and flange, (by
rotating counterclockwise).
4. Remove blade and store in a safe place for future use.
5. Place 2" diameter blade (furnished with tool), onto blade mounting
flange (orient with teeth facing in same direction as directional arrow
cast in housing, see Fig. 14).
6. Position blade retaining flange (flat side out), to spindle, insert blade bolt
and rotate clockwise until hand-tight.
7. Depress and hold spindle lock button (B) Fig. 11, while rotating blade by
hand until spindle lock engages.

8. Continue to hold spindle lock button while using the hex wrench
(furnished with tool), to tighten blade retaining bolt securely, (by rotating
clockwise).
9. Rotate the "quick set" depth adjusting turret (A) Fig. 12, to the "FF"
position.
10. Lift safety lever (A) Fig. 13, fully retract the plunge mechanism, and
reposition the safety lever as shown in Fig. 14. Slowly release pressure
on plunge mechanism.
11. Reposition blade cover plate to tool, and secure in place with the four
retaining screws (removed in step 1).
DO NOT OPERATE TOOL WITHOUT BLADE COVER INSTALLED

How do you lock the spindle on a JET JWS-18HO in order to change the bit?


Screw a starting pin ( see manual) into the base plate then cut a small block of wood that engages the face of the cutter and the starting pin. This locks the spindle and stops it moving. Use the supplied spanner and tap with a mallet. Tap the cutter to loosen it. Dave and Graham.

I cannot get the tool to lock.


unplug tool and rotate the spindle by hand to engage the first lock and then rotate the second and depress, it this fails the locking mechanism might be worn enough not to engage in the collet nut. What I would do then is go to Dewaltservicenet.com and download a schematic for the tool and you can see how to disassemble the locking mechanism to get to the collet nut. Let me know if you need help before voting please. Thanks

Can't find my owners manual. How do I change the blade. Bolt hits on a guard that covers the arbor. On a DW713 combination saw.


Removing the Blade
1. Unplug the saw.
2. Raise the arm to the upper position and raise the lower guard as far as possible.
3. Loosen, but do not remove guard bracket screw until the bracket can be raised far
enough to access the blade screw. Lower guard will remain raised due to the position
of the guard bracket screw.
4. Depress the spindle lock button (Fig. 3) while carefully rotating the saw blade by hand
until the lock engages
5. Keeping the button depressed, use the other hand and
the wrench provided to loosen the blade screw. (Turn
clockwise, left-hand threads.)
6. Remove the blade screw, outer blade clamp, and
blade. The inner blade clamp may be left on the
spindle.
Installing a Blade
1. Unplug the saw.
2. With the arm raised, the lower guard held open and the
guard bracket, place the blade on the spindle against
the inner blade clamp with the teeth at the bottom of
the blade pointing toward the back of the saw.
3. Assemble the outer blade clamp onto the spindle.
4. Install the blade screw and, engaging the spindle lock,
tighten the screw firmly with wrench provided. (Turn
counterclockwise, left-hand threads.)
5. Return the guard bracket to its original position and
firmly tighten the guard bracket screw to hold bracket
in place.
WARNING:
• The guard bracket must be returned
to its original position and the
screw tightened before activating
the saw.
• Failure to do so may allow the guard
to contact the spinning saw blade
resulting in damage to the saw and
severe personal injury

My 4x4 won't engage except if u get out and lock the hubs on my f-350 2006


you must have those vacume operated automatic locking hubs that can be manuely locked.switch the truck to 4x4 operation. and get behind the front wheels ,pull of the vacume hose at the back of the spindle to see if engine vacume is getting down to the hubs at all.with the truck running you should have 18 to 20 inchs of vacume at each hose. if no vacume is felt. check the soleinoid behind the right head light for switching vacume down to the spindles. if there is vacume the problem is in the hubs themselves.
