The bolt on your saw blade turns right. Hold a block of wood against the blade so the bolt can turn. You can use a adjustable wrench if it will fit. Otherwise see if an open end wrench will fit. The 10" blade will only work if the saw was designed for a 10" blade and there is enough clearance.

How to change a mitre saw blade


When changing the blade on your mitre saw the first step is to unplug the tool for safety reasons. DO NOT disassembly the safety cover, there is a bolt on the housing that when loosened allows the cover to be moved away from the blade to expose the spindle bolt. After moving the ASSEMBLY away from the blade turn the blade by hand slowly while pushing on the spindle lock to stop rotation. Loosen the blade bolt (usually left hand thread) and place the parts in the order removed, e.g. blade bolt outer flange, blade spacer if used. Reinstall blade noting the rotation of the teeth and replace parts in reverse order. After installation check for rotation by carefully turning the blade by hand and replace safety cover to its original position and tighten bolt.

The nut that holds the saw blade on is flat like a washer. I can't find a tool to remove it. i want to change the saw blade.


Some of those nuts had 2 holes in them and there is a special tool that fits in the holes and you turn the tool to unloosen it.

7 1/4 B&D saw - blade stalls but motor continues to run


There should be a special washer between the bolt (that holds the blade on) and the blade. If the arbor has a flat side on it, then the washer should have a matching hole so that the washer cannot turn independently of the arbor. Or, some saws use a spring washer which is cupped and becomes flattened against the blade as the bolt is tightened. If you have the first type of washer, perhaps the bolt is just not tight enough. If you have the second type of washer, perhaps the washer is backwards. If you have neither type of washer, you need one.

How to get blade off


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 right 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 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 a ms 150 miter saw that a relative gave me. Blade needs to be changed but the locking mechanism is stripped. How can I remove the bolt that holds the blade in place. Also the blade turns clockwise...


Jam a piece of wood between the blade and the table to stop it from turning while loosening the bolt. Circular saws never had locking mechanisms until recent years.

Need to change saw blade, lost instructions


1st, !!UNPLUG the saw!! Wear gloves to prevent nicks from contact with the saw blades.
If this is a handheld 'skill-saw' type saw, use a piece of wood to chock the saw blade from turning as you use a proper size socket/wrench to loosen the bolt which holds the blade.
The bolt will loosen counter-clock wise. It will probably be very tight, and you will have to use some effort to loosen it.
Remove the bolt, lift the follow guard and remove the blade.
Replace the blade with a like size diameter blade by raising the follow guard, inserting the blade, replacing the bolt, using a piece of wood to keep the blade from rotating and TIGHTEN the bolt. You will almost feel as if you need three hands to accomplish this procedure but its been done millions of successful times.

Good luck. :)
