Yes, but you lefties especially may want to handle one before buying since they're basically all made for right-handed people.

Locked


Sounds like the chain brake is locked. On the front of the saw, in front of where you would put your left hand on the handle is another piece. Its probably plastic. With the saw off, take your hand, place your thumb on the front handle, your 4 fingers on top of the paddle & pull the paddle back toward the front handle until it clicks, thus releasing the chain brake & freeing the chain.

If the saw is fitted with a decompression switch you need to decompress the cylinder after every pull to make it easier to start. If it doesn't have a decompression switch you need to put the saw on the ground and put your right foot firmly into the handle opening, place your left hand on the top hand bar, grip the pull handle and pull out slowly until you feel a solid wall or compression and then pull straight up fast and hard for about 8 - 10". Make sure the brake is on when starting. I have an older Husky saw and this is how I start it. It has a short pull cycle so don't try to give it a long pull like a weed whipper!

How to put the blade into the black and decker 3.4 amp powered handsaw


#1) You have to locate the blade release button on the saw (see your manual). The opposite side of the release button is a screw-like OVAL shaped PIN. To insert the blade, the direction( or position) of this OVAL shaped PIN has to match the OVAL shaped hole in the blade. You could use a screw driver to change the direction/position of this OVAL shaped pin. You have to push down the release button when you use the screw driver to turn.

#2) Hold the blade in Vertical position in your right hand. The "Oval" hole is on top. The teeth is facing your left hand. You will see that the "oval" hole on the top of the blade is a "horizontal" oval.

#3) Hold the saw (handle) in your left hand as if you were going to saw using your left hand.
Now peek through the hole of the saw and find the direction of the OVAL PIN. It has to be a "horizontal" (or lied down) OVAL. If it is not, use the screw driver to adjust it.

#4) Hold the blade using your right hand. Oval hole on top, teeth facing your left hand. Insert
the blade from the bottom of the saw. What you needed to do is to insert the PIN into the hole
of the blade. When you inserted the pin into the hole of the blade, slowly turned the blade upward, the blade will lock by itself.

What position should the kick back be in when starting?


Your OM (all manufacturers) says to engage the chain brake prior to starting. It is the safest way to start your saw.
I start my saws on the ground (like the OM recommends), right toe in rear handle, wide stance, left hand on front handle with the chain brake disengaged. The saw I used first (Pioneer 1980±) has no chain brake.
I now have a Mac 110 (top handle) that is very awkward to start on the ground. I engage the brake on it before I attempt a start. Whatever method you use Please exercise great caution.

If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. HTH & Good Luck.

How do I change blade on Ryobi W-660 circular saw. I put some WD-40 on bolt, but it doesn't budge. To loosen, I turn clockwise?


I can't find that model number listed but generally a circular saw is standard thread, the mitre saw us left hand and a worm drive is also left hand thread.

Push down on the handle . Facing the saw there is a spring loaded pin on the left rear side , right at the pivot point , pull out on it and raise the handle to the up position.

Grinder question


Use a pencil and straight edge to mark the cutting line on the wood. Place the wood on the saw table and line the mark up with the saw. Place the mark on the right side of the blade to ensure proper cutting. Plug the saw in and put on your safety goggles. Support the wood on the work surface with your left hand, placing it far from the saw blade. Place your right hand on the handle, and push the trigger to start the saw. Move the saw blade down onto the wood. Put constant pressure on the handle to slowly move the blade through the wood. Release the trigger and raise the blade once the cut is complete. Make diagonal cuts in the same manner, by marking the wood and lining the mark up just to the right of the saw blade. Continue as you would for a straight cut. Remove the wood from the saw. Unplug the chop saw and dust the sawdust off. Remove the dust bag from the back and empty it. Vacuum any remaining dust off of the saw.

Circular saw Safety issues


If you are left-handed, you must be extremely cautious when operating a circular saw, since most saws are designed for right-handed operation. But if you can, you'll be better off with a left-handed model or an adjustable one (suitable for right-handed and left-handed as well).
