Spray that ****** with some penetrating oil like PB Blaster or Liquid Wrench and let it soak on it overnight. The locking nut probably removes counterclockwise. Maybe use the exact corresponding hex-head socket (6-Pt. not a 12-Pt.) and ratchet and give the handle a good strong rap with a hammer when it is ready.

Craftsman edger model 358.796480 blade not cutting. Am I doing something wrong? Seems like looks OK but still not cutting.

Assuming the obvious that the motor is turning, the only thing that would keep it from cutting is that the nut holding the blade is not tight enough or the sping washer between the nut and the blade is missing or on backwards. The correct orientation of the spring washer is so the inside surface around the hole contacts the nut, and the outside circumfrance of the washer contacts the blade. P.S. the nut is tightened very tight.

Change an edger blade

Start here to find User's Manual. Sometimes the nut/bolt holding the blade on is a Left Hand thread and requires CW turning to loosen and remove. Not sure on this model.

Lock on the blade with a pair of ViseGrip Pliers, then try turning the nut, they are installed quite tight, also try clockwise, maybe left hand nut.

Can't get the nut off.. is there a secret to blade removal

Hi these are usually the opposite way to which the blade turns but you may have to use a rattle gun to remove this. If you have a look at the thread you should be able to determine which way it comes off. Just remember to fix the blade so it wont turn and take your fingers off.

Can't remove the nut holding blade on. Which way do I remove

Get some WD-40 and spray the area around the nut then let it sit for a few hours. This will get into the threads and loosen any rust that is compounding your problem. Now get a good wrench and look directly at the nut. Left is loose and Right is tight.
