On the side of the saw in the center of the blade, there should be a bolt to remove that will get the blade off. Some saws have a special wrench needed to remove it, but since you have a Skil, you should be able to use either a 1/2" or 9/16" wrench or socket to take it loose and switch the blade out for one of your choice. Hope that helps.

SOURCE: no inner washer to keep blade in place

I really wish I could give you a link to somewhere you could find your part but I have checked all the ones I know and it's a pretty big list. I came up empty. I just don't see a way for you to get a replacement for that saw.
However many saws have the same or similar parts. You need to measure the shaft diameter and head to a hardware to check what ever saw you can for a replacement.
Worst case scenario is to take your saw to a small local machine shop. Find the oldest guy in the place and explain your problem. Buy him a cup of coffee and he'll make you one for practically nothing.

Hey it worked on my boss every time.
I hope this helps.

How to adjust the blade on skil bandsaw 3385 that will not stay on


This is one of most common problems with Skil saws. Make sure that you set the correct tension and track the blade properly. It could also be problem on the blade specially on the weld. I suggest you visit bandsawblog.com for helpful band saw techniques and sawblade.com . I get my blades from them.

It's actually a Skil model 4280 sabre saw. Problem is it doesn't grip blades properly, so they are constantly slipping out. Chuck seems to be engaged, have shot WD-40 in it - no change. Ideas?


There is nothing wrong with your Skil 4280. The universal U chuck blade is the problem. Look at Lenox blade 4318JC or Disston 5418 and you will see a slight ridge on the face of the blade on both sides where the teeth start and the blade tail engages the chuck. Without the ridge the blade will come out.

I broke the lower blade guide - a die cast piece that holds the blade guide bearings. It appears that Skil does not carry replacement parts


All I could find out is that your skil bandsaw is made by the Bosch Bench tool co in Mount Prospect, Il. The owners manual from skil shows the part you need as #6 lower blade guide, and Lowes does handle this line of Skil. I would suggest contacying Lowes or the store you bought this from and getting the consumer help phone number from them. They have to have this part available as I am seeing a lot of these units refurbished, so someone has the parts to them. Hope this helps and good luck. Marvin

Where is the blade lock button on a skilsaw 5150 2 1/8hp ???? i can't get the blade off and turning the saw bolt the same direction as it spins isn't working.


First, there is no blade lock button on the Skil model 5150. I called the Skil customer service and they emailed me the exact manual for this circular saw. The method I used to loosen a VERY TIGHT blade stud was: spray with WD-40, imbed the blade in scrap wood, set Skil wrench (usually found in back of foot under handle) on so it could be struck going in counter-clockwise direction. Use hammer to strike handle of wrench a couple of times. To replace blade, finger-tighten blade stud, then use wrench to tighten 1/8 turn or (45°).
