Compound (Sliding) Miter Saw 315.23740

by John Sindorf
(Bellevue, WA)

I would like to know how to change the blade. I would also like to find an owners manual.


I have not been able to figure out how to lock the spindle so I can take out the bolt. I can immobilize the blade easy enough, but when I put the wrench to the bolt, it slips, turning the motor, but not loosening the bolt.

I haven't been able to find a place to put a spanner, etc.

Any help GREATLY appreciate.

Thanks,

john

There is a small button on other side that locks the shaft.

Sometimes if you will use an impact driver it will overcome the tendaancy of the blade to slip on the shaft.
I have one of these I would like to sell if anyone knows someone who trades in old tools.

I would use a piece of wood to wedge a tooth of blade against, and use an open end wrench
