I haven't been able to locate a suitable substitute for the discontinued Skil 2610341361 Blade Flange. You may be able to locate a used saw for sale and use it for parts.
Question: Washer 2610341465
is this the washer that goes between the saw and the blade? That spacer got lost some how. I have the support disc and screw.

The part number 2610341465 Washer is located on the commutator end of the armature. To secure the blade to the saw you will need 1, of part number 1619X00935 Blade Bolt. And 2, of part number 2610341361 Supporting Disc. Unfortunately the manufacture no longer supplies this item. You may be able to locate one online, or look for a used saw that you can use for parts.
Question: Brush Kit For 5150
is part no. 34-004 just the brush or the entire brush kit, i need the both entire kits
Reply: Brush Kit For 5150
If you are looking for the entire brush and holder assembly, you can order part number 2610993156. It come as a set of two so you will only need to order one for your saw.
Hope this helps,

Question: How To Open Switch To Replace Co...
I opened the handle of my saw 5150 to replace the cord, but how to open switch to get end of old cord out?
Reply: How To Open Switch To Replace Co...
Your switch has a trap door connector.To remove the wire you need to push a small pin or paper clip end down along side the wire to push the trap door down and release the wire.Then just push the new wire down the hole and the door will grip it.Hope that helps.Good luck.
Question: Replacing Blade
I want to replace the blade on my Skilsaw 5150. I have had it for over 18 years and haven't used it that much. Now that I am retired from the navy, I have many projects for it and would like to put a new blade on it. Please tell me how to change it?
Reply: Replacing Blade
don't know how to change blade
Question: Slipping Blade
I can't tighten my blade onto the shaft enough to keep the shaft from spinning in the blade. This problem has gotten worse over time, so finally I can't use the saw anymore.
If there was some way I could lock or jam the armature or the shaft to tighten and then later, loosen the bolt on the end of the shaft that holds the blade I think I would be OK. I have never had this problem before, but now I'm stumped.
Question: Skilsaw 5150 Armature Replacemen...
I think I may be to attached to his saw. Lately it's been sounding a bit rough especially when it stops but it started smoking the other day and smelled horrific. I've been using this saw for 2 years now and never changed the brushes on it. I have a sears or black and decker blade on it which has been sharpened in the last year. My FIL said it was the armature that has gone bad. I really want to open this up and replace the problem but it's $24 for the armature plus $5 for the replacement brushes. I can get a whole used saw on ebay for around the same price.
Would this have been prevented if I would have only changed the brushes on it?
Has anyone had any luck fiddling with the 5150 Skilsaw?
Thank you so much

Preventive maintenance is always a good idea..[to prevent a breakdown] However, major failure of a tool [burnt up] is usually caused by incorrect voltage [extension cords,operating on the same circuit with other equipment ] heavy or improper use, too light of a tool for the work...not wearing corrective shoes..etc..
Replacing the brush's in this case probably wouldn't have changed the outcome..
it might be better to repair yourself instead of the ebay option.. unless they can guarantee the quality of the saw..:)
[except if your tool has more problems then just the armature..then i would go for the used one..]:p
just my two cents..
Question: Blade Is Slipping
I have a 5150 skil circular saw and the blade slips extremely. I CAN'T EVEN GET THE BLADE OFF, TOM
Reply: Blade Is Slipping
First you will have to get the blade off. I have my best luck with an impact driver. 1/2 socket. Bolt comes out counter clockwise. Check for slippage were the flanges match up to the blade. Could be your blade is to thin. Or you have the wrong flanges.
