    Thanks jyackle5. Tells me all I needed & more. Now what I need is the proper wrench to hold the arbor firmly while I apply ample COUNTERCLOCKWISE torque. No problemma! .. By the way I can simplify their scheme just by turning the Bench Saw on end to work from underneath, thus to skip removing pieces in or atop the saw's tabletop. VERY HELPFUL (Shoulda known Delta would have a manual, downloadable or in print.)

    Thanks again jyackle5. I've already ordered them thru eReplacementParts (NOT the cheapest, what with S & H being more than the parts themselves).

    Good as it gets .. what more's there to say? I'll use FixYa again - that's for sure!

CHANGING THE BLADE

1. WARNING: WHEN CHANGING THE BLADE,

MAKE CERTAIN THE TOOL IS DISCONNECTED

FROM THE POWER SOURCE. USE ONLY 10" DIAMETER

SAW BLADES RATED FOR 4600 RPM OR HIGHER

WITH 5/8" ARBOR HOLES.

2. Raise the saw blade to its maximum height and

remove the table insert (A) Fig. 35.

3. Using the open end wrench (B) Fig. 35, place open

end of wrench on flats on inside blade flange to keep the

saw arbor from rotating and remove arbor nut (C) with

wrench (D). Turn nut (C) counterclockwise to remove.

Remove outside blade flange (E) and saw blade (F).

4. Assemble new blade, making certain teeth of blade

are pointing down at the front of the saw table and

assemble the outside blade flange (E) Fig. 35, and arbor

nut (C). Tighten nut (C) with wrench (D) by turning nut

clockwise while holding arbor steady with other wrench

(B).
5. Replace table insert.

How do you change a blade on model 36-075


Lots of saws have left hand threads on the nut that holds the blade in place. It is designed so that if the saw starts up and the nut isn't snug, the nut and the blade slipping on the turning arbor would tend to tighten the nut as they slip against the force of the spinning arbor.
1. Unplug the saw.
2. Hold on to the blade tightly with one hand.
3. Put the wrench on the arbor nut and turn it in the direction you would turn it as if the wrench were turning the blade to cut wood.

If you've previously overtightened the blade, jamb a piece of wood against the teeth and the saw table top and then follow step 3.

If the motor is on the left side of the blade as you face the saw, then it's a standard right hand nut.
If the motor is on the right side of the blade as you face the saw, then its a left handed nut.

I just bought a hand grinder from a guy but don't know how to take the disc off . it has a button u push but no nut on the disc


If there isn't an arbor nut holding the blade/disc on the grinder you have a disc with the threaded center built into it. While holding the arbor lock button down you have to turn the disc by hand until it breaks free and spins off. It may be on vary tight as it is a self-tightening thread so the disc won't come off while you use it.

yes sometimes the bolts are left handed thread. What you can try is find a metric socket that starts to go on to the nut and tap it the rest of the way on the nut with a mallet then try to unloosen the bolt.

How do you tighten the nuts when changing the wheels on a 6 inch craftsman bench grinder. Thank you...


Clamp the shaft behind one wheel with 'Channelock' or 'Visegrip' pliers, then tighten both nuts. Check the new wheels for 'off-center' running by spinning them with your hand. They may fit the shaft tight enough that there is no centering adjustment--use a 'wheel dresser' (either a stone type or a multi-wheel type) to true up the wheel so that there is no radial wobble. Hope this helps!

How to stop shaft from turning to remove nut and replace wheel


If you put a wrench on the nut on the other end of the shaft, you have a 50/50 chance that the nut you want loose will come loose. If the wrong one comes loose, you can remove that nut completely (and the wheel) then take the nut with you to the store to buy another one. Then put two nuts back on and tighten them together as a jamb nut. Then try again. If the wrong nut still turns, you have to tighten the pair of nuts together tighter. good luck

How do I change a brush? I can't get the axle locked to get the nut off. Can you help me?


Remember if you are trying to change the left side it is a reverse thread nut. You would turn it clockwise to loosen. IF it is very tight, put a wrench on both sides. IF the right side comes loose, remove brush/grinding wheel, and re-install nut, with an extra nut locked to the first one, the put a wrench on both sides again.

Have tried everything, can't get one of the grinding wheels off.


On a bench grinder the wheels turn towards you. This means the grinding wheel on the right side, has a right and nut, and the left side has a left handed nut. If you're trying to remove the left side turn the nut counter-clockwise
