SOURCE: where is the lock button for the skill saw

I can't seem to access the parts view for your model, because of its age.
But I'm thinking skil probably hasn't changed things all that much.
Take a look at the 5450 and see if this doesn't help any...click here ...and scroll to page 7.

hello I can help you. Look carefully around the housing that surrounds the blade and you will find a small lock button. Push it in and rotate the blade until it locks. Then apply the wrench.

I would check to see that ID of the blade arbor matches the OD of the motor arbor, and you are not missing an adapter ring.

SOURCE: Have an old Black and Decker 7321 Skill Saw.

With the saw UNPLUGGED, check around the base of the motor shaft, there should be some kind of button that you can depress to lock the blade from turning. Then with the appropriate sized wrench, turn the blade locking bolt clockwise (it is a backward thread) to loosen it. Then simply remove the washers, etc carefully and replace them the same way they came off. If there is no locking button, you can use a scrap piece of wood on the saw table and push down on the blade to lock it in place.

How do i remove the blade from a sr700 bLK N DEK MITER/CHOP SAW


Not sure how a Makita works, but on my DeWalt, a screw on a plate on the side of the guard is exposed when you rotate the guard all the way back. Remove that screw from the plate and the plate will allow the mechanism to lift up out of the way of the arbor screw.

The red saftey lock button will not lock blade in place how can i get the blade off? Ive tryed putting saw blade in a vice and then using socket wrench to loosen nut ive broke two sockets.


Chances are you are turning the nut the wrong direction. The old addage "lefty loosey, righty tighty" does not apply to saw blades. You must turn the socket "clockwise" to loosen, which is opposite to normal nuts and bolts. Try slipping a screwdriver between the teeth of the saw. It should catch on the shoe of the saw as you loosen the nut.

Need to change saw blade, lost instructions


1st, !!UNPLUG the saw!! Wear gloves to prevent nicks from contact with the saw blades.
If this is a handheld 'skill-saw' type saw, use a piece of wood to chock the saw blade from turning as you use a proper size socket/wrench to loosen the bolt which holds the blade.
The bolt will loosen counter-clock wise. It will probably be very tight, and you will have to use some effort to loosen it.
Remove the bolt, lift the follow guard and remove the blade.
Replace the blade with a like size diameter blade by raising the follow guard, inserting the blade, replacing the bolt, using a piece of wood to keep the blade from rotating and TIGHTEN the bolt. You will almost feel as if you need three hands to accomplish this procedure but its been done millions of successful times.

Good luck. :)

How do you re-install the Skillsaw 5150 blade?


I,ve personally never heard of a problem quite like yours. I use skill saw brand saws every day and the arbor and washer will only make the blade wobble if installed incorrectly. Blades can be turned around to cut different types of material as well. Check to make sure the hole or diamond is the same on the new blade(you might have to punch it out) if its not seeding properly on the saw, you could also check under the guard to make sure nothing is binding the saw. The only other thing I could suggest would be to check the lock button (the one you hold to change blades, that stops the saw motor from turning) if that is stuck, your saw won't run. Good Luck!!
