Can't get blade off my saw
 
Help! I can't get the blade off my circular saw. I'm using the wrench that came with it, and I am turning it the right way, pushing down on the brake button as well. Any tricks?

What way are you turning it...that makes you so sure that you are actually turning it in the right direction?

As gently as possible, wedge the shaft of a long screwdriver or similar device between one of the saw teeth and the foot plate of the saw. then turn in the direction that traps the screwdriver.

Atlantic: Sounds like it is a left handed thread:yes: If you have not gotten it loose by now try going opposite normal rotation.
They r a PIA until u get used to them.

Hi Monty

If you have a pair of vice-grips try locking the jaw onto the blade. Make sure you are clear of the teeth. Turn your wrench as per owners manual, until the vice-grips contact the sole plate. If it still won't come off it may just be super tight, and you might need a bigger wrench, or possibly an impact gun.

instruction manual normally won't be wrong.... I meant really really rare it will be wrong.... but make sure the manual is talking about left-hand/right-hand saw as the same one you are dealing with...

You are turning it the wrong way...to get the retaining nut off...it is turned Counter-Clockwise.

And DO NOT ...repeat...DO NOT use an impact device on it...

All he said was that he read the instruction manual.
