When looking at the blade from the feed side of the saw, put a block of wood against the teeth of the saw blade after unplugging the saw. Next, mount the wrench that goes on the RH side of the blade onto the arbor nut. Pull the wrench toward you to loosen the nut. After you’ve replaced the blade, retighten the nut while holding the blade by holding the blade while wearing a heavy leather work glove on your left hand giving the nut a final tug at the end. No need to over crank the nut down. I’ve found this method to work much better than the two wrench method.

I use the wood block, but for whatever reason, I bought the Benchdog Blade-Loc which works very well too.
