Topic tags/keywords: ridgid blade stuck

The blade is held tight to the nut. When I try to unscrew holding the arbor using the wrench, both the blade and the nut turn. Help please! Thank you!

Use a piece of wood against the blade teeth to keep it from turning. You do know tht the nut is a left hand thread huh?

Push a block of scrap into the teeth of the blade then use the wrench to loosen the arbor nut.

Regardless of tilt, all you need to remember is that you put the wrench on the arbor nut and pull towards you (front) to loosen. Works the same on either left or right tilt machines.

I can remember going through this on an older gas grill tank. I had no idea the internal threads were reversed, man I got that sucker on tight.

Your saw should have come with two wrenches. A box wrench for the arbor nut and an open wrench to hold the arbor itself.

Every single time I need to swap pedals on a bike, I forget which one is left handed.

It’s always the other one. Then it’s the other one again when you try that one.

Then finally its the one you’re in front of, but you’ve already tightened the hell out of them.

Not unlike a USB-A plug. It’s always upside down at least twice before you get it right, despite that actually being physically impossible.

Have your say...
