  • TS3650

    Could someone please pont me in the right direction for instructions on how to change the blade on my TS3650.. I have the basics of it. But I can't find a blade stop to keep the blade from spinning... You think this would be covered in the owners manual. ??

    1. Raise the blade to its highest point.
    2. Put a leather work glove on your left hand.
    3. Grab and hold the blade with your gloved left hand.
    4. Loosen and remove the arbor nut.
    5. Slide the blade off the arbor and set aside.
    6. Slide the replacement blade over the arbor.
    7. Grab and hold the blade again with your gloved left hand.
    8. Tighten the arbor nut just slightly past finger tight.
    9. Lower the blade to the proper cutting height.

    I decided to change calling the bathroom the "John" and renamed it the "Jim". I feel so much better saying I went to the Jim this morning.

      Actually the 3650 comes with two wrenches so that you don't have to hassle with jamming the blade on a piece of wood or grabbing it with your hand... Just put one of the wrenches on the arbor (left of the blade) and the other wrench on the arbor nut. If you get the wrenches aligned properly you can then squeeze the wrenches toward each other to release the nut (once you get 'em on there it's obvious what this means).

      Obviously, unplug the saw before doing any of this. [img]smile.gif[/img]

      I'm also surprised this isn't described in the manual. I had to double check to make sure because it seems like such an obvious thing for the instructions to cover.

        It is, on the top half of page 44;

        Getting to Know Your Table Saw (continued)
        10. Removing and Installing Saw-blade

        But its not listed in the Table of Contents of my
        2003 copy of the manual.
