SOURCE: How to change blade on 10" Craftsman table saw?

you need to grab the blade with something.maybe some pliers(if you are not going to refurbish blade) and loosen the nut in the center of the blade. i think it is a left hand thread(cw to loosen) because of the rotation of the blade. if the nut is on the left when looking from the front it is probably left handed. make sure it's unplugged and wear leather gloves so you don't get cut. install in reverse...

The manual is posted on line. Changing the blade does not require turning the saw over, blocks of wood or vice grips. The advice listed above is potentially damaging to your equipment.

New to table saw use, have my husbands old 10 craftsman, was learning to rip with it doing fine, then it started to bog down during cut until the blades stops, moving. put on a new blade and noticed...

If I understood correctly, you started using your husband's table saw and while ripping boards, you managed to stall out the blade AND motor?! If that's the case, you probably have a very dull blade and are binding your board on the blade. Neither is safe and it sounds like trouble is brewing.

First and foremost, get someone to show you how to safely and properly use and adjust the saw if you are new to wood working and power tools. That saw is capable of turning your lumber into a high speed missal if you do things improperly.

It also sounds like you tried installing a new 10" saw blade. Changing the blade requires 2 wrenches. One to hold the arbor and one to tighten the nut. The blade itself should rest on the arbor between two large washers. Also make sure you install the blade so the front face of the cutter teeth face you and rotate toward you. Make sure the saw is unplugged when changing the blade and never turn on your saw with a loose blade.

How to change the blade on a black and decker table saw

unplug tool first. remove the throat plate and raise the blade all the way up. There were 2 wrenches included with this saw when new,, an open end wrench about 3/4" and a box wrench. Hold the spindle with the open end wrench and loosen the hex nut with the other one. It is a standard thread.

I can't figure out how to change the blade.From some of the other comments I've read , a lot of other people have had that same problem. So, how do I do it?

UNPLUG tool, remove the throat plate (piece that goes around blade) there are 2 wrenches that were supplied with the tool when new. One fits on the flats on the spindle and the other fits on the hex nut, what I generally do is brace the spindle wrench on the table of the tool and then with the hex wrench pull to loosen. You might have to TAP it with a small hammer to loosen, WEAR gloves when doing this to save scrapes on the hands. Let me know if you need more assistance.

How do you change the blade on a GMC 10 inch cmpund miter saw?

With the saw unplugged, push the spindle lock in on the motor side of the saw (a short black rod) while turning the blade by hand. The spindle lock will seat and hold the blade still so that you can use a wrench to loosen the nut that holds the blade on. Use the spindle lock again for tightening a new blade on the saw.

How to replace the blade

Hi. This saw should have come with two wrenches for removing and reinstalling the blade. If you do not have the wrenches, open end wrenches will do. Begin by unplugging the saw. That is important. Then use the wrenches to hold the inner nut and turn the outer nut. Counterclockwise as u look at it. Be sure when u install the new blade that you have the teeth pointing in the right direction. make a note of how the teeth are pointing now before u remove that blade. If you don't have the special wrenches you can purchase them from

Blade becomes loose after 4-5 cuts

Check to see if the arbor, nut or spindle is worn. You may want to get a new shouldered nut for it. Also see if running loose has damaged the shoulder on the spindle. Check that the correct size of arbor is being used on the blade.

I need to change the blade on my 10 in. tabel saw,

OK. first of all unplug it. Then remove the plate that surrounds the blade. Wrenches came with the saw so hopefully you still have them.
You need two special wrenches which are sold at any sears hardware store if you don't have a set. The only thing to remember is that the outer nut has reverse threads so turn it clockwise to loosen it and counter clockwise to tighten it. Note the direction the saw teeth point in and duplicate that with the new blade.

Get back if you have any other questions.

Horid noise! Is it the bearings?

It sounds like a bearing alright, I'm pretty sure you can replace the bearing, but you will have to slip the belt off the pulley and remove the trunion, (the part that raises and lowers the saw blade), put this on you work bench and remove the blade shaft this should allow you to pull the bearing or pound it out of the bearing retainer. I would do this ASAP before you ruin the shaft.

Can't Get Blade Off

without a model number I cant look at a breakdown but if it is like the table saws that I work on I would assume that you removed the center plate to get to the hex nut and spindle, if so what I have to sometimes is put my wrench on the spindle and brace it against the saw frame and using a soft mallet tap on the hex wrench to loosen the nut. After this initial blade change the hex nut has to be tight but not to the point of breaking wrenches. If this doesn't work get me the model number and I will dig deeper to try and help
