Changing a miter saw blade

I borrowed a miter saw and am having trouble trying to change the blade. Two problems:

1. To remove, will the bolt be turned clockwise, or counter-clockwise?

2. How can I keep the blade in place to loosen the bolt? There is no arbor lock.

Lefty-loosey (counter-clockwise). There will be space on the inside of the blade for another wrench to hold the shaft while you loosen the nut. If you've never done it, then you might want a pair of gloves; the blade might be dull on wood, but it'll be sharp on hands!

Change blade Makita LS1030 10-Inch Compound Miter saw


There is an 8mm bolt on the front of the guard. Loosen/remove this and the central guard mount will drop slightly. Behind the metal guard is a slide lock for the blade spindle. Push the lock bar and turn the blade untill it catches and is held solid. Then remove the blade fixing bolt and bobs your uncle. Alternativly, with all mitre saws, you can just pop an old bit of wood on the work base and then use the spannrer/allen key supplied to turn the blade so it bites into the wood as if you are trying to cut it. This will hold the blade steady and you will also be turning the bolt in the right direction.

How do i change the blade on my delta 10" mitre saw


Exploded diagram for your SM100M miter saw is here.
User manual is here.

Page 20 covers blade change operation.

Make sure you unplug your saw! You need to remove a screw from the cover and rotate the cover to the rear. Use a hex wrench in the motor shaft to keep the saw blade from turning, and loosen the arbor nut with a 1/2" wrench. The arbor is reverse threaded, so you'll turn it clockwise to loosen, then counterclockwise to tighten it up after you have swapped the blade.
Rotate the cover back after that's done, and replace the screw.

If this was useful, please vote. Thanks.

Solution for "changing blades on a milwaukee miter saw


Have you removed the old blade yet?

The blade lock my be broken off -- it should be a button on top of the motor.

This saw has left hand threads -- turn clockwise to loosen the bolt/nut.

If you can't find the blade lock, lower the saw onto a piece of wood llike a 2x4 to keep the blade from turning.

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.

Change blade


OK first raise the cutting head. Loosen the screw that holds the guard in place and move out of the way. Find the spindle lock on the right hand side of the gearcase and turn blade by hand (UNPLUG SAW FIRST) until it locks. With the wrench supplied with saw put it on the blade bolt and turn it clockwise to loosen, it has left hand threads, remove outer flange and blade. Let me know it you need any more help

I have a 10"DELTA Miter Saw and need to change blade. Please describe how to remove and replace blade. Thanks


Without a model number I cant look for this saw, but if it is like the other mitre saws that I work on, the lower guard should have a bolt holding it in place, loosen the bolt so you can move the guard and the blade bolt is usually LH thread, on the backside of the gearcase by the blade there should be a spindle lock, rotate blade until it locks and then remove bolt. If your saw is different please give me the model number and I will pull up a schematic and look at it.

Changing the saw blade on a Ryobi Mitre saw


There may be a push button type blade lock, and on many of these saws the retaining bolt for the blade is backwards threads, e.i., looking at the top of blade retaining bolt, turn it clockwise to loosen. This would normally tighten, but in the case of many of these saws, it loosens it.
