Blade Wrench. The metal blade wrench is used to tighten and loosen the blade bolt when changing the saw's blade.

how do you tighten a circular saw blade? In general, the blades on right-handed circular saws turn counterclockwise, so you'd tighten the bolt clockwise; the blades on left-handed circular saws turn clockwise, so you'd tighten the bolt counterclockwise. Hold the outer flange (rim) of the nut with a wrench to keep it from turning.

Thereof, where is the arbor lock on a circular saw?

Place the saw on a wooden surface and pull back the blade guard. If the saw has an arbor lock button on the top of the housing, press it in. The arbor is the shaft the blade installs on. If there's no lock button, press the blade into the wooden surface.

Why does my circular saw blade wobble?

The most common cause of wobble like this is that the bearings or bushings are worn out. These are the things that hold the main shaft in place. They should be a close fit to the shaft, and the shaft rotates within them. When they are worn out, there is too much room and the shaft flops around or wobbles.

How do I change the blade on a Porter Cable circular saw?

Set the saw firmly on a sturdy work surface and locate the blade stop mechanism. Look for a black button on top of a thin metal rod, just behind the blade guard, on the top of your Porter Cable saw. Depress this button to activate the blade stop and keep it pressed in throughout the removal process.

When should I change my circular saw blade?

Ways to tell its dull:
  1. it starts binding.
  2. it tears/chips the substance more than usual.
  3. it burns the wood.
  4. just a pain to use = a sharp blade should let you push the saw forward with minimum effort. If you find yourself forcing the saw forward (not ideal from a safety perspective), change the blade.

Can I use a smaller blade on my circular saw?

It is never recommended to use a larger or smaller blade than the recommended size of your manufacturer for the saw that you have. Most circular saws have a blade size of around 7 ¼ inch blade for the corded versions of these saws, some of the cordless saws have a lot smaller capacity than the corded versions.
