Brucesg,

Check the threading on the arbor bolt to ensure that they are not reverse threaded. You may actually be tightening the nut when you think you are loosening it.

Let us know what happens.

Good luck.

Brucesg,

I just thought that my answer in my post may not be your problem. It could still be the answer though. You were not specific as to what the problem is so here is another suggestion. Use a screwdriver shaft in between the teeth of the blade to keep the blade from rotating as you turn the arbor nut.

We need as much detail in your questions as you can provide so we can help more efficiently.

Good luck.

use a piece of 3/4 inch hardwood to wedge the blade. a screwdriver can damage the teeth of the blade and can leave scratches on the table surface. wedge the blade as if feeding the saw, pull the blade wrench towards the front of the saw. this works no matter which side of the arbor the blade is positioned. this also words for circle saws.

JMHO

hi guys,

Sorry for the long delay in answering.I had a little surgery along the way plus a computer crash. I did lock the blade on saw when I first tried to remove it. My problem is that the whole shaft turns behind the blade and I can't loosen the nut or bolt that holds the blade in place... There is not any room to get anything on the shaft to hold it stationary while I turn the bolt or nut.
