His only problem is that coating on the blade. I’ve been at this professionally for over 40 years now. I have never had a blade tighten itself until I recently bought a red Freud saw blade. I tightened it like I’ve been tightening blades all my life.
I’ll put the blade on the arbor, flange, and then hand tighten the nut. I’ll then put the wrench on the nut, let the wrench rest on the throat, and give the blade a slight pull to tighten it for cutting, about 5 lbs torque. When I went to take the thin kerf blade off buy running a board up against the teeth while using the wrench to loosen the nut, I thought I was going to put a bend in it that would make it unusable. I had to get a 1/8” piece of aluminum and put it between a couple teeth to assist loosening the nut. the torque from use had to have been over 40-50 lbs, way more than necessary. I ended up removing the paint with an orbit sander where the flange seats on both sides. The blade is now removable like all have been for the last 40 years. .............. Jerry (in Tucson)
