The blade bolt on the saw has reverse threads. If you need a new bolt you can order one at the link below. You will need the model # of the saw though.

Macallister chop saw blade problem, the motor runs but when half way through cutting wood the blade stops ?


I'm not sure if you have a chop saw or circular saw. Either way, it sounds like the nut and washer are not tight enough to hold the blade. If you have a circular saw clockwise will tighten the nut and washer onto the blade and hold it in place. Most chop saws are a left hand thread and then you would turn the nut counter clockwise to hold the blade tighter. The blade wobbles because it is not tight.

Bolt that holds blade well not loosen what is the correct direction to loosen bolt


Remember that on a circular saw, the bolts are typically left-handed thread so it is the opposite of a typical bolt. This is because the blade spins to the right so if a normal bolt was used it would loosen as the saw operates.

loosen the guard screw, UNPLUG tool first, move the guard out of the way, there is a spindle lockon the backside of the gearcase push it and slowly turn the blade until it engages and then remove the bolt, it is a left hand thread. DO NOT disassemble the guard, just loosen bolt and move out away from blade also you need to have the head in the raised position.

Cannot remove blade from craftsman circular saw


without knowing the model number I can only assume that it is a circular saw and the blade is on the right hand side and then the bolt should be a standard thread. Hold the spindle lock in and turn the bolt counter clockwise to loosen. If other than it would probably be a left hand thread and do just the opposite. Let me know and if so please provide the model number so I can look at a breakdown for the tool.

Lost the brass retaining nut which holds the saw blade in place


You can probably find one at http://www.toolpartsdirect.com/ But I can't help you much because you didn't provide enough info about your saw. One thing that might be helpful to you is to know if it's a right- or left- handed thread. If you view the arbor from the end where the nut goes on, and the blade rotation is counter-clockwise (which is the case for most table-saws) it will be a right-hand thread. If the blade rotation is clockwise (which is the case for probably all radial-arm saws) it will be a left-hand thread. Another thing is to know is the diameter, 5/8 inch being the most common. I don't think there is a lot of variation in the thread pitch for a given diameter. If this is helpful, please vote.

How do I change blade on Ryobi W-660 circular saw. I put some WD-40 on bolt, but it doesn't budge. To loosen, I turn clockwise?


I can't find that model number listed but generally a circular saw is standard thread, the mitre saw us left hand and a worm drive is also left hand thread.

I have tried numerous times to undo a nut on my Black and Decker circular saw without success. which way do I turn the nut to undo it and take the circular saw blade?


Am I correct that this is a hand-held saw? Want to make sure of the terminology.

If so, the bolt holding the blade has right hand threads -- meaning it loosens by turning counter-clockwise.

Is there a blade lock? Are you using it?
