Macallister chop saw blade problem, the motor runs but when half way through cutting wood the blade stops ?


I'm not sure if you have a chop saw or circular saw. Either way, it sounds like the nut and washer are not tight enough to hold the blade. If you have a circular saw clockwise will tighten the nut and washer onto the blade and hold it in place. Most chop saws are a left hand thread and then you would turn the nut counter clockwise to hold the blade tighter. The blade wobbles because it is not tight.

How do I fix a circular saw that runs, but the second it hits wood it stops the blade? The saw was used just a few hours. Looks almost new.


Is the blade loose causing it to slip on the axle when it gets pressure from the wood? You should be able to just tighten the big bolt in the middle of the blade.

Wsc255 circular saw makes a whining noise when I start it up when I put the blade onto the wood the blade stops.


Either the motor is shot or the bearings are shot. Or both. You can buy replacement parts on eReplacementparts.com. It might be worth your time to just buy a new saw. Look on eBay.

Saw stops when i start cutting 1/2 plywood.


If it actually binds and stops the motor...... it sounds like the motor is bad, the bearings are bad, or the blade is on backwards. If the motor keeps spinning, but the blade stops then the gears are bad or the blade bolt is not tight.

My new dewalt circular 18v has very little power, fully charged, blade not dull


Are you generally an unlucky person? It sounds like you got the one in 5000 that comes with a bad-cell battery. Take it back and trade it. There is no fixing a bad cell battery.

Blade is slipping, whole spindle is slipping, could barely get blade off slips when i try to saw


From the description it sounds to me like the bolt holding the blade in place isn't tight enough, obviously. If there isn't a button on the saw that stops the blade from rotating when you're changing out the blade. Try this--when tightening down the blade, put it on the saw, then open the guard and rest the blade on a piece of scrap wood to stop if from moving. Then fully tighten down the bolt that holds the blade in place and you should be fine.

I cannot loosen the bolt that holds the blade on my 7 1/4 Makita circular saw. How do I make the blade stop spinning to loosen it?


they make a blade holder now but usually if you hold the blade against a wood block real tight you can loosen the bold / screw . most warn against over tightening them

Blade on circular saw stops once it hits the wood


Do you have the blade installed correctly. If the blade is put on with the teeth going the wrong way, this happens.
