Last Updated: 2nd January, 2020
- Unplug your Skilsaw table saw from the wall socket.
- Put on your heavy leather palm gloves and flip up the blade guard.
- Raise the blade all the way up with the blade height adjustment control wheel, at the front of the saw.
- Unscrew the arbor nut with gloved fingers once it is sufficiently loosened by the wrench.

Herein, which way do you turn to loosen a table saw blade?
Remove the blade and set aside out the way while you work. With the teeth of the blade positioned toward the front of the table saw put the blade onto the blade housing. Place the washer and nut in place and secure the blade in place by tightening the nut with a wrench by turning it clockwise (away from you).
Also, which direction should an arbor nut be turned in order to loosen it? If you are unsure which way to turn the nut, this is the rule: The nut always tightens in the opposite direction of the saw blade's rotation. Otherwise, every time you used your saw, the blade's rotation would unscrew the bolt, and the blade would fall off!

How to Change Blade on Miter Saw
- Remove the Spindle Cover. Rotate the blade guard to the top position.
- Remove the Blade. Press the spindle lock to fully lock the spindle.
- Replace the Blade. Replacing the blade is opposite of removing the blade.
Is a table saw Reverse thread?
Yes, it's reverse threads. All table saws have an arbor that's threaded to self tighten when the blade spins. Pulling the wrench toward the front of the saw should always loosen the nut. If the saw is right tilt and the blade mounts from the left side of the flange, it'll have reverse threads.
