Yo whats up everybody I wanted to do a review of the milescraft blade changer. I have had this blade changer for about 2 weeks and it works pretty good. The way it works is you put it next to the blade and you raise the blade. It has to be lined up straight with the blade. Then you keep raising the blade until the changer lifts off the table that means that its locked in. Then you take the blade off. I have always had problems using a second wrench on the left side of the blade so this is much easier then using a second wrench. Make sure you put the changer on the left side of the blade.

Interesting. Can you lift the blade out of the saw with this tool and avoid handling the sharp blade directly with your hands? Does this work if you have a stabilizer on your saw blade?

For a blade changer I would also like to see it cover at least half of the blade. When changing blade I always need to be super careful to not ding the carbied teeth on the iron top as I pull it out, as even then it still happens from time to time. Would be nice if a blade changer can prevent that.

It covers the entire blade no teeth are exposed except the ones in the saw.
You cant lift it out without toughing it but using this lowers the chance that you can slip and cut your hand or that the blade gets messed up. I am not sure if it works with a stabilizer

If the teeth ‘in the saw’ are exposed, then it doesn’t cover the whole blade.
