    It was for a circular saw...cldnt find that option, so I asked under a mitre saw question.
    Anyway. Some skill saws dont have locking gear button. Instead, I laid down a piece of wood to lock the blade in place, then was able to loosen the nut and replace the saw blade.

I have a circular saw that is locked and the blade won't rotate its brand new how do you free the blade?


Its sounds like the blade lock button is depressed.
looking from the rear of the unit, you should see a button between the left side of the handle and behind the blade shield.
check that. it probably is locked in the depressed position or it may be damaged.

I hope this helps.

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.

Have an old Black and Decker 7321 Skill Saw. Bought it used. Cant figure out how to change the blade. Help


With the saw UNPLUGGED, check around the base of the motor shaft, there should be some kind of button that you can depress to lock the blade from turning. Then with the appropriate sized wrench, turn the blade locking bolt clockwise (it is a backward thread) to loosen it. Then simply remove the washers, etc carefully and replace them the same way they came off. If there is no locking button, you can use a scrap piece of wood on the saw table and push down on the blade to lock it in place.

Just bought Skill Saw 5150 with no blade and bought a 7 1/2'' blade and the saw has a wrench but can't find anyway to lock to undo the nut so I can replace the blade. I pulled on trigger and held it but...


hello I can help you. Look carefully around the housing that surrounds the blade and you will find a small lock button. Push it in and rotate the blade until it locks. Then apply the wrench.

Where is the lock button for the skill saw circular saw model 5150. were trying to get the blade back on and the motor just turns when we turn the screw?


I can't seem to access the parts view for your model, because of its age.
But I'm thinking skil probably hasn't changed things all that much.
Take a look at the 5450 and see if this doesn't help any...click here ...and scroll to page 7.

How do you re-install the Skillsaw 5150 blade?


I,ve personally never heard of a problem quite like yours. I use skill saw brand saws every day and the arbor and washer will only make the blade wobble if installed incorrectly. Blades can be turned around to cut different types of material as well. Check to make sure the hole or diamond is the same on the new blade(you might have to punch it out) if its not seeding properly on the saw, you could also check under the guard to make sure nothing is binding the saw. The only other thing I could suggest would be to check the lock button (the one you hold to change blades, that stops the saw motor from turning) if that is stuck, your saw won't run. Good Luck!!
