Generally, depending on the manufacturer, the nut only has to be loosened and then looking from the blade end you will see a slotted screw. Turn the screw counterclockwise while wiggling the chain bar until the blade is loose enough to remove from the guides. You may have to put a small flat screwdriver under the retaining nut and pry up lightly while loosening the nuit with a wrench or socket..After backing the nut off enough the blade bar should slip up and away from the drive gear.

Change blade


What model of saw are you using? BE SURE TO DISCONNECT THE POWER CORD. There is usually a brake that you push in to lock the motor, it is usually located between the upper blade guard and the handle, on the motor. It should be spring loaded, push it in and hold it in the loosen the nut on the blade, counter clockwise CCW, righty tighty, lefty loosey.
If you still cannot find a brake, put a screwdriver into the curved part of a tooth behind the carbide tip and 90 degrees to the blade near the front of the lower blade guard. It should be below the main shoe (plate that the saw sits on while cutting). When you turn the nut CCW, the screwdriver will lock the blade against the main show and the blade nut may then be loosened and the motor shaft should not spin.
If all this fails, read the instructions and look there for a brake lock.

How do I change the blade


Unplug the saw. I repeat, unplug the saw and then lift the guard all the way up. Set the teeth of the blade in a wood board to keep it from moving and then loosen the blade. If that doesn't work, go to a bike repair shop and ask to borrow/rent a thin wrench that fits behind the blade. Probably a 3/4 or 7/8" wrench. Use that to hold the blade secure then loosen the blade nut.

I have a Ryobi WS730 wet saw. I suppose the manual was discarded by my wife with the box. I need to change the blade and do not find a stopping mechanism to hold the blade while I use a wrench on the...


The saw should have come with a wheel wrench and a hex key. The hex key will act as your stopping mechanism if you hold it.

With the saw unplugged, loosen the wheel guard lock and rotate the wheel guard to expose the arbor nut. Put the wrench on the arbor nut and a hex key in the spindle. Keep the wheel from turning with the hex key and loosen the arbor nut with the wrench (turn counter-clockwise). Then remove the hex key, wheel wrench, arbor nut, and outer washer to access the blade. Remove the old blade then wipe a drop of oil on the inner washer. Place the new blade on the spindle. Replace the outer washer and then the arbor nut. Again use the wheel wrench and the hex key to tighten the arbor nut while keeping the wheel from turning. Then replace the wheel guard and tighten the wheel guard lock.

The manual is available from Ryobi: http://www.ryobitools.com/catalog/power_tools/tile_saws/WS730 . The direct link to the manual is http://www.ryobitools.com/product_manual/file_url/11/WS730_414_eng.pdf .

I hope this helps.

(If you can't find the hex key, get another that will just fit the opening in the spindle.)

Change blade miter saw


Un-plug the saw. Remove the screws holding the side saw guard in place. Look at the center of the saw blade for the nut holding it in place. Take a socket wrench that fits the nut and loosen it. You'll need to take a scrap piece of wood 2x4, and jamb the teeth of the blade into it while loosening the nut. The nut will come off first and then a washer/spacer.

Reverse the order for installing the new blade. Make sure you use the proper size diameter blade (10 inch) and mounting hole in the replacement blade. Also, use the provided washer/spacers that were on the original blade and secure the nut. Spin by hand to see if everything clears. Mount the protective guard back on. Plug in the saw and test cut .

Good luck. If you are still unsure - ask a handy neighbor to help. It takes about 5 minutes to complete this task.

Need to change the blade on a craftsman 10'' miter saw model 137.23498, how do i do it?


First off, unplug the saw. No need to remove the guard, though you may have to loosen the cover over the lock nut to access it on some saws.
Look for an arbor lock button on the back side of the blade housing or motor, to lock the blade in place.
Hold that down and use a wrench to loosen the nut holding the blade on.
If you don't have an arbor lock, you'll have to wedge a 1x 4 or 2x4 under the blade and hold pressure on the handle to keep it from spinning while you loosen the lock nut. Once it's loose, spin it off and remove the washer and blade, replace and retighten the nut.
Should be pretty straightforward, as long as you have no power to the machine and lock the blade from turning, not too much can go wrong.
If you want to find an online manual with instructions for your saw, please try Sears online support site at www.managemyhome.com.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

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. :)
