Step #1: Disconnect The Power Cable
Disconnect the power cable of the saw. Then wait until the blade is stopped. But do not stop the blade with the bare hand. If the blade is hot, give it time to cool.
Remove the blade guard. Use a screwdriver to remove the screws attached to the blade guard.
Step #2: Hold The Blade With Screwdriver
Now, you need a screwdriver or a wrench to hold the blade in its position. This will help you when you will remove the blade.
Step #3: Insert The Screwdriver At The Blade Hole
You will find a small hole in the edge of the blade. Place a screwdriver to hold the blade in its position. Otherwise, the blade will spin when you will make the attempt to change it. Or place a wrench behind the blade to stop the spinning of the blade in the time of changing.
Step #4: Set The Wrench With Center Nut
Take the wrench to remove the center nut of the saw. Now set the wrench with the center nut. Carefully operate the wrench because when you remove the nut your hand will then be very close to the blade.
Step #5: Use Hammer If Jammed
Pull the wrench towards you. Sometimes the center nut is jammed due to dirt. If you are unable to pull the wrench, just use a hammer. Hold the wrench in one hand and hit the wrench with the hammer. It will loosen the nut easily.
Step #6: Bring Out The Center Nut
When the nut is loosened, use your hand to bring out the nut. Bring out the washer also. Keep the nut and the washer in a safe place.
Step #7: Remove The Old Blade
Lower the blade and slide the blade from the center to remove the blade.
Step #8: Install The New Blade
Now it’s time to install the new blade. When you install the new blade, take note of the rotation. Note that the points of the blade edge are always towards you.
Step #9: Replace The Washer And Nut
Carefully set the new blade into the center position because the blade is sharp. Replace the washer and nut back to their previous position. Tighten the center nut by using the wrench.
You need to be more careful when tightening the nut because the new blade is sharper than the older blade. Tighten the nut as much as possible.
Step #10: Replace The Blade Guard
Remove the screwdriver or wrench from the behind of the blade. Replace the blade guard and tighten the screws of the blade guard by using the screwdriver.
