Sorry about that, bobvila.com ate my post.

Usually a nail through a hole in the blade (or between teeth) will hold it so you can loosen or tighten the center bolt. The center bolt is usu. a 1/2" wrench/socket.

Sounds like you might not have much experience with this tool. Please heed safety rules. One of the most important is to keep any part of your body away from the rear of the saw. Should it kick back, it can quickly jerk back over anything in its path, causing injury.

depending on how old the saw is, it may have a button on the saw body that when pressed locks the blade from rotating to ease the removal of the bolt holding the blade on.

Hey there Tom, good to hear from you on an "ordinary" post!

Believe it or not, that blade-lock button was on my initial post. But, as I mentioned, the "dotcom dog" ate my post...

On my saw, the blade lock button is on top of the saw. It is nicer than the old 'nail thru the blade' method.

I use a piece of 1 by wood to block the blade, therefore no chance of nicking a carbide tooth or dulling a steel tooth. use the same on a table saw.

one other safty tip on the circular saw USE TWO HANDS to hold the saw

JMHO
