Place a finger nail in the thread near the end ot the shaft. If when rotated CW it comes off the shaft it is a left hand thread. My 10" Craftsman radial saw has a left hand thread on the blade shaft.

The blade bolt on the saw has reverse threads. If you need a new bolt you can order one at the link below. You will need the model # of the saw though.

SOURCE: How do I change the
Here is what you do, this is common on some skill saws, you of course make sure is unplugged, get your self a stick ( like a small broom handle type, or a piece of 1 by 2 chuck or wood, or anything of about that size. Put saw on its side, with the blade side toward you to get access to the nut to take off blade. As you know the blades go down( clockwise when operating to cut wood) and of course now, you have the problem of taking off the blade counter clockwise because the angle of the blades are going back words, ( nothing to grab on to the wood, to put a wrench on going counter clock wise to take nut off. What the idea for you and normal way is this, as the saw is on the side, with the nut/blade side toward you, you wedge the piece of wood, between the left top side of blade under the frame of the blade, meaning you are wedging it in, so the blade when turning the nut counter clockwise to unscrew, will stay in place. Think of it as wedging the blade with a chunk of wood, so it will not move. AGAIN, it comes off (nut) counter clockwise, so, you are just using this wood chunk to keep blade from moving, and then to put new blade on, just reverse procedure. Thanks Mike
