Porter Cable 146B Circ Saw-Blade Replacement Answered
New to this site but hopeful for some results....
I inherited a Porter Cable 146B circular saw from the wife’s uncle before he passed away. This is a 6-3/4” saw and is for cabinet work and fine cuts. It is truly a fantastic power tool although it’s very old. Unfortunately, the blade on this guy is pretty dull and needs to be replaced. I have exhausted the internet (including Porter Cable on line Support) and I have tried all my tricks to get the old (Craftsman) blade off but the shaft just keeps spinning when I turn the spindle nut.
So, wondering if anyone has an owners manual or knows if there is a blade lock on this saw AND if so, where is it located. I would greatly appreciate any help on this. Thank you for taking the time to read this post.
