You can find miter saw--and other parts--using our convenient power tool parts finder. Replacing the Blade
1. Slide the blade guard out of the way
Slide the blade guard up to gain access to the screw that secures it to the saw, then loosen the screw.
Slide the blade guard all the way back to gain access to the blade bolt.
2. Remove the blade
Press down on the saw's locking pin and spin the blade until it locks. Then use an open-ended wrench or Allen wrench to remove the bolt.
If your saw lacks a locking pin, you can use a piece of 2x4 to prevent the blade from spinning.
With the bolt removed, you can remove the flange and blade.
3. Install the new blade
Install the new blade and add the flange. Tighten the bolt using the locking pin or piece of 2x4.
4. Slide the blade guard back into place
Now just slide the blade guard back into position and tighten the screw.
