The Family Handyman
Here’s a gripping tip from reader Michael Mata for removing a table saw blade.
1. Unplug the saw.
2. Grab the wrench with one hand and wear a heavy glove—a welder’s glove works great—on your other hand.
3. Remove the saw’s throat plate, grip the blade firmly with your gloved hand and loosen the arbor nut with the wrench.
That’s it—remount the blade the same way, firmly snugging but not overtightening the nut.
