    If you still have problem a couple things to look for, UNPLUG saw are the inner and outer flanges on correctly? Is the spacer behind the flange, check the position of blade in reference to upper guard. It should be close to center try these first

Look around on the saw. There's probably a safety button that keeps it locked down when not in use. You may have to hold down on the handle of the saw while pushing the button to release it. Check out here: mitersawbuzz.com Best Miter Saw Reviews Real Man Miter Saw

Either the blade or the guard is out of alignment. You will have to check and find out which one is the culprit.

B & D #3051 worm drive saw: How do I access the return spring for blade guard?


Link,
Usually you will have to remove the blade guard to get access to that. There is usually a rubber stop with a screw going through it that you will have to remove, and a spiral spring clip on the inside of the hub of the blade guard that will also have to be removed and then you should be able to lift the blade guard off the saw. The spring will hook around the blade guard and the other end will hook to the saw housing. Hope this helps!

Why is my blade hitting the blade guard


Hard to say without seeing it but....wrong sized blade, bent blade, clamp missing or installed wrong, bent guard, or bent blade shaft. I'd look in that order. Hope that helps.

I don't have this particular model in my shop right now but almost all circular saws work like this. From the blade side of the saw, the spring attaches to a hole in the blade guard usually around the two to three o'clock position. With the blade guard correctly positioned on the saw, wrap the spring clockwise around the bottom of the hub and back up the nine o'clock side. There is another hole or tab inside the top of the upper blade guard somewhere around the twelve to two o'clock position. Hook the end of the spring there and test the guard for free movement throughout it's range of motion.

Need to replace the blade on the saw. mastercraft 10" mitre saw. i've managed to loosen it but can't seem to get the blade out of the machine to put the new one in. what am i not doing?


Lifting the safety guard maybe? The blade will not pass through the opening with the guard down (it's one of the purposes of the guard).

Sabre saw- craftsman - 17256 - change blades


This saw uses a tool-free blade change. 1. Unplug the jigsaw 2. Place your finger on the lower edge of the see through blade guard, and pull it forward until it locks up in place 3. Lift the tool-free blade change holder (bright yellow piece above the blade), and insert the blade into the slot of the tool-free blade change holder. 4. Release the tool-free blade change holder to lock the blade in place. 5. Pull down on the blade to verify that the blade is securely locked in place. The teeth of the blade should be pointing forward and down. 5. Put the blade guard back down.
You can use with both 'T' & 'U' shanked blades.
Feel free to ask me any other questions about this saw.

Can't find my owners manual. How do I change the blade. Bolt hits on a guard that covers the arbor. On a DW713 combination saw.


Removing the Blade
1. Unplug the saw.
2. Raise the arm to the upper position and raise the lower guard as far as possible.
3. Loosen, but do not remove guard bracket screw until the bracket can be raised far
enough to access the blade screw. Lower guard will remain raised due to the position
of the guard bracket screw.
4. Depress the spindle lock button (Fig. 3) while carefully rotating the saw blade by hand
until the lock engages
5. Keeping the button depressed, use the other hand and
the wrench provided to loosen the blade screw. (Turn
clockwise, left-hand threads.)
6. Remove the blade screw, outer blade clamp, and
blade. The inner blade clamp may be left on the
spindle.
Installing a Blade
1. Unplug the saw.
2. With the arm raised, the lower guard held open and the
guard bracket, place the blade on the spindle against
the inner blade clamp with the teeth at the bottom of
the blade pointing toward the back of the saw.
3. Assemble the outer blade clamp onto the spindle.
4. Install the blade screw and, engaging the spindle lock,
tighten the screw firmly with wrench provided. (Turn
counterclockwise, left-hand threads.)
5. Return the guard bracket to its original position and
firmly tighten the guard bracket screw to hold bracket
in place.
WARNING:
• The guard bracket must be returned
to its original position and the
screw tightened before activating
the saw.
• Failure to do so may allow the guard
to contact the spinning saw blade
resulting in damage to the saw and
severe personal injury

How do I remove the guard?


Lift the guard up and you will see a nut holding the blade. You should not have to remove guard to change blade. Make sure unit is unplugged before working on it.
