The bolt will always loosen in the direction the teeth are pointed (unless you have the blade on backward:) ) Farmerbear

How do you change a blade on model 36-075


Lots of saws have left hand threads on the nut that holds the blade in place. It is designed so that if the saw starts up and the nut isn't snug, the nut and the blade slipping on the turning arbor would tend to tighten the nut as they slip against the force of the spinning arbor.
1. Unplug the saw.
2. Hold on to the blade tightly with one hand.
3. Put the wrench on the arbor nut and turn it in the direction you would turn it as if the wrench were turning the blade to cut wood.

If you've previously overtightened the blade, jamb a piece of wood against the teeth and the saw table top and then follow step 3.

If the motor is on the left side of the blade as you face the saw, then it's a standard right hand nut.
If the motor is on the right side of the blade as you face the saw, then its a left handed nut.

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.

Blade bolt is stripped


I assume that the head of the bolt is rounded off, so you can't get a hold of it to remove it. (Most people say "stripped" when they mean the threads of the bolt or the hole are destroyed.) First, confirm the direction you need to turn it, which differs if the blade is on the right or left. If you are looking at the head of the bolt, the teeth of the blade will be pointing in the direction that you need to turn the bolt to loosen it. I assume you have already tried vise-grips to no avail. The next easiest thing to try is a small rotary grinding tool (like a dremmel) - you can use that to grind two parallel flat surfaces on the bolt so that you have something to grip. If the head of the bolt is too thin for that to work, you are going to have to use a screw extractor which requires you to drill a hole in the head of the bolt. However, if this is a left-handed thread (which would be the case if the teeth of saw are pointing clockwise, you will need a left-handed screw extractor - which might be hard to find. Good luck.

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.

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.

Can not remove the old blade


1. Unplug the saw.
2. Locate the blade lock button used to lock the motor shaft when changing a blade. For your saw, this button is usually located on the left side of the blade guard somewhere around the motor housing.
3. Push the button while rotating the blade until the button engages and the blade will no longer turn.
4. Use the wrench that came with the saw (or another wrench) to loosen and remove the blade bolt. For your saw the bolt should have standard right hand threads which means you loosen the bolt by turning it counter clock-wise.
5. Remove the old blade and replace it with a new blade of the same mounting type. Some blades have a round through hole and some blades have a diamond through hole.
6. Re-install the blade bolt and tighten clock-wise while holding the blade lock button down.

4. Use the wrench that came with the saw (or another wrench) to loosen and remove the blade bolt. For a worm drive saw with the blade to the left of the motor, the bolt should have left hand threads (non-standard) which means you loosen the bolt by turning it clock-wise.

I have 1 10 In compound miter hexbolt will not loosen and lock will not hold. Is it possible that the bolt is a left thread?


most mitre saw bolts that hold blade are left hand thread. If you overtightened you might have to use extra force to loosen, on occasion I have had to use an impact wrench to loosen.
